Overwatch: Blizzard Releases New Gameplay Footage of Bastion


Sentry deployed!

Blizzard has released about 11 minutes of gameplay footage of Bastion.

If you’re not familiar with who the character is, Bastion is a defensive class in Blizzard’s new First Person Shooter, Overwatch. If you’ve ever had dreams of being a siege tank or a sentry gun, then Bastion is your robot.

His primary weapon is an assault rifle with a 20 round clip. It’s not too impressive, but it seems to pack enough power to take down lighter classes.

The beauty of Bastion comes in the form of his “configuration: sentry” skill where he is able to transform into a sentry gun with a 200 round clip, and a regenerating 1000 health shield. All of these perks come at the cost of losing mobility and being vulnerable from behind the shield.

His other skill is “reconfigure,” which allows Bastion to heal himself without the need of support characters like Mercy or health packs.

Finally, his ultimate allows him to turn into a tank and deal massive amounts of damage while remaining highly mobile.

Next, we have Zarya, a new Overwatch tank class character who is supposed to take damage for her teammates. Check her out in this new video.
