As a character, Doomfist’s main utility in “Overwatch” makes use of his fists. He can shoot projectiles using his left arm, while his right arm can punch and knock enemies off. He also has the ability to charge enemies using his right arm, knocking opponents straight into a wall. As for his ultimate, it is called Meteor Strike and allows him to leap towards an advancing enemy, blowing them apart. Currently, he is available on the Public Test Realm of the game.
