Overwatch’s Newest Character, Moira, Gets Detailed

Moira is Overwatch’s New Support that Heals and Kills

Over at BlizzCon 2017, Blizzard has given Overwatch fans some great news as a new character, Moira, joins the fray. She’s a Support character who is a 48-year old scientist whose work was criticized by her peers as ethically dubious. Nonetheless, she was invited to join the ranks of Oasis, but rumors circulate that she may have already been funded by the shadowy Talon for years.

Moira’s abilities fit her brilliant but controversial scientist background as she can either heal her allies or deal damage with her abilities. Here’s an overview of her abilities:



  • Biotic Grasp – Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her. Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies’ health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy.
  • Biotic Orb – Moira launches a rebounding biotic sphere; she can choose between a regeneration effect that heals the allies it passes through, or a decay effect that deals damage to enemies.
  • Fade – Moira quickly teleports a short distance.
  • Coalescence – Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies.

Overwatch is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
