Ever since Overwatch 2 was officially announced at BlizzCon 2019, fans have been wondering about what abilities each hero will get in the new PvE mode, and one player decided to explore one possibility for Ashe and B.O.B.

Ashe and her Omnic sidekick B.O.B. were introduced at BlizzCon 2018, and she’s since become one of the favorite DPS heroes in the game.

Developers have already said that every hero will be getting a new set of tiered abilities for Overwatch 2’s PvE mode, so Reddit user cal-nomen-official decided to come up with some ideas for Ashe and B.O.B.

Blizzard - OverwatchHero 29 in Overwatch, Ashe was added to the game in November of 2018.

We know from the game’s reveal that each hero will have different abilities available as they level up in the new PvE story mode, but apart from the heroes in the demo at BlizzCon, we don’t have any idea about what abilities there will be.

The unlocks would benefit Ashe and B.O.B. and sometimes both, like at level 20 with a trait allowing the Omnic to stay on the field until his health reaches zero.

At level 10, B.O.B. gets to pull out his road sign, which would be a really cool ability to see actually added to Overwatch.

Ashe would also be able to deal more AOE damage at level 50 with the “Nitro” perk, which adds a napalm effect that sets the area around her dynamite explosion on fire.

As we said earlier these are just ideas, and we still have no idea what Ashe’s abilities will actually be in Overwatch 2, but there’s no harm in thinking about it in the time we have before the new game comes out.

Cal-nomen has been hard at work coming up with ideas for Overwatch 2 abilities already, earlier they came up with concepts for Orisa and everyone’s favorite tank D.Va.

It will be interesting to see how close cal-nomen and other Overwatch players get with their ideas when the actual details are revealed, whenever that happens.
