November 5 was an exciting day for Overwatch fans around the world as the all-new, and highly anticipated, new Hero, Ashe was finally released on the PTR.
The PTR (Public Test Region) allows players to test out new features, heroes and more before they are added to the game on a full-time basis, and the the introduction of Ashe meant that it has been busier than ever over the last 24 hours.
Ashe is a DPS hero who carries an impressive Viper rifle around that can fired from the hip or used in ADS mode with the alternate fire button. She also carries around a Coach Gun for mobility and Dynamite that works as a timed explosive or can be shot for instant detonation.
Despite the all-new hero only being introduced to the PTR on November 5, players are already beginning to get the habit of using Ashe’s various weapons and abilities, as one clip that was shared on Reddit shows.
Posted by ‘St_SiRUS’ on the Overwatch subreddit, this incredible Play Of The Game sees the player, QUEENLANA’, pick up an incredible five kills by shooting Ashe’s Dynamite at the perfect time:
Ashe also has an interesting ultimate that calls in her Omnic butler, B.O.B., who acts like an extra hero combined with a powerful Torbjörn turret.
If you’re a PC Overwatch player, we’d highly recommend playing a few games with Ashe because it’s one of the most rewarding experiences in the game right now.
It will be interesting to see how the top players adapt to using, and countering, the all-new Hero moving forward. For the time being, though, we expect to see Ashe players making a lot of things go ‘BOOM’!
