The latest “Overwatch” hero has just arrived on the live servers after several weeks of testing on the PTR. This formidable foe known as Doomfist is skilled with melee attacks compared to the other heroes within the game. Moreover, he is a member of the evil group Talon alongside other characters like Reaper, Sombra, and Widowmaker.

Doomfist smashes his way into ‘Overwatch’

It’s official, after nearly two years of waiting, Doomfist has finally arrived in Blizzard’s first-person shooter game. Now players on all platforms will be able to dominate the battlefield with a flurry of punches and smashes.

According to Dot Esports, he has been in testing since July 6 with Blizzard even tweaking some of his abilities during his time on the Public Test Realm (PTR).

His main form of attack is launching enemies with his Rocket Punch ability. He’ll charge up and strike an enemy with a powerful blow from his gauntlet. If his target lands on a surface, this attack will deal extra damage which can even kill squishy heroes like Soldier76, Mercy, Ana, and Genji. Doomfist also has his Seismic Slam skill wherein he leap forward and sends a shockwave that brings enemies closer to him. He can play combo with skill with Rising Uppercut which launches enemies into the air.

As an Offense character, this hero is best used on the front lines and killing enemies.

To avoid an early death, this Talon member has a passive skill called The Best Defense... which grants him a temporary personal shield whenever he does ability damage. With this in mind, Doomfist acts something like a hybrid Offense/Tank hero who should be difficult to kill in the right hands.


In the “Overwatch” universe, Doomfist is one of the leaders of Talon – a terrorist organization bent on disrupting the natural order of the world to “strengthen” the human race.

This character believes that conflict is the real source of human strength and only the strong will survive. With that being said, his main goal seems to be causing yet another global war similar to the Omnic Crisis that occurred several years ago.

With his plans in motion, it’s up to the Overwatch team to put a stop to his dangerous endeavors.

However, the old strike team has fallen apart with each person carrying out their own agendas. Nevertheless, some new heroes are slowly emerging, like Orisa, who are ready to counter threats like Doomfist and Talon. For now, we’ll just have to keep waiting for further lore details from Blizzard.
