She shoots rockets and makes people cry

Blizzard has just released the latest footage in their Overwatch preview series. Today’s feature shows Pharah, an offensive hero class that uses a rocket launcher and her jetpack to slay her enemies.

If you aren’t familiar with Overwatch, this game is Blizzard’s latest foray into first person shooters. It features a style of gameplay similar to Team Fortress 2 in that it pits two teams of 6 against each other, but it borrows the skill system of MOBA games like League of Legends. Each hero has a unique set of skills and one ultimate they must charge up before they can unleash it.

Just in case you need it, here is an overview of Pharah:

Rocket Launcher

It has 6 shots per clip and a fast travel time. On impact, it explodes into a small area of effect that can knock away opponents and deal damage. Fans of Team Fortress 2 may find this weapon similar to the Soldier’s Rocket Launcher since this weapon allows Pharah to juggle her opponents to their deaths.
