Apparently, Blizzard is probably teasing us with a new Overwatch hero, and it seems that recent rumors might eventually come true.
Overwatch released on its Twitter account, the “transcript” of the interview between Angela Ziegler (Mercy), Soldier 76 and Reaper. The document shows the weapon that uses Mercy’s biotic healing mechanism, intended for “nurses on the front lines.”
The weapon was designed by Torbjorn and he requested that this technology must be used exclusively for healing. Mercy, on the other hand, is concerned about the fact that these modifications will inevitably turn this healing tool into a devastating weapon. Since we got a really small amount of details, all we can do is make speculations according to this weapons looks. And, as it seems, it looks like a sniper intended for healing.
Recently, there was a talk about the sniper character named Sombra. Additionally, these rumors also suggested that Sombra could be Pharah’s mother Ana, who is believed to be dead. There is a theory where Ana shared a similar fate as Soldier 76 and Reaper did. For both of these heroes, they were considered dead. In the concept art of the Overwatch background stories, Ana (Sombra) is holding a sniper. This fact definitely makes the theory more than just a simple speculation.
