New Overwatch Tease Hints A New Hero’s Weapon

Game developer Blizzard has released new information related to Overwatch. This involves the speculation about Overwatch’s new hero. If this speculation is true, a game’s new teaser would finally give a hint of the hero’s owned tools.


A New Hero is coming to Overwatch


A quick check of the Overwatch’s official Twitter account gave a hint of the game’s new hero. The company tweeted “I’ll knock some sense into you!” which was accompanied by a teaser image.

The leaked teaser photo revealed of what appears to be a schematics for some kind of tool. The game’s new hero has a tool named Slaga v3.0, which looks like some kind of a pickaxe which can be converted into a hammer.


Apart from the tool, the leaked teaser photo has also revealed other details. These details include some materials like a tablet-like device in the bottom right. Fans of the popular Overwatch game would certainly probe the leaked material photo. Another object that could be found in the photo was a mouse toy and a cat’s paw swiping at it from just out of frame.


Also, the recently leaked details follow the earlier rumor of the game’ “after-action” report for something called Operation White Dome. The Operation White Dome creatively described an incident which involved Torbjörn, Reinhardt, including a character named Private First Class Emre Sariogulu.


Following the earlier leaked detail was that players claimed to have seen a letter Torbjörn wrote to his wife. With these, avid fans of the game believed that the game’s new hero is Brigitte.


It can be recalled that Blizzard announced previously that it was actually conducting a test of the game’s rumored hero. Meanwhile, game director Jeff Kaplan stressed that the new character is “very needed.”
