How To Play Orisa
Fan’s have been dying of anticipation and speculating over her role ever since she was announced a few weeks ago, Orisa is meant to be similar to the familiar tank Reinhardt. She is really meant to balance things out and ultimately displace other team’s formations using moves like HALT!. She’s is semi-mobile and good at defense but also plays a mean offense with a mean damage-boosting ult that not only increases her own damage but everyone on her team within her line of sight. She is truly the swiss army knife of heroes.
Right now, she is available in every mode except competitive.
“We want to give players some time to learn about and play Orisa before she’s placed into the crucible of Competitive Play,” said principal designer Scott Mercer.
