Overwatch's highly anticipated 27th hero is finally making her debut. Brigitte is the daughter of Torbjrn Lindholm and will play the role of support. Her custom armor makes her extremely strong and difficult to take down. Her ultimate will be crucial as it provides Brigitte with increased movement speed as well as providing armor for those around her.

Her origin story reveals that years of working alongside her father in his engineering workshop helped her become an adept mechanic herself.
