Overwatch: Ashe And B.O.B Are Now Available On The PTR (VIDEO)

Overwatch: Ashe Now Available On The PTR (VIDEO)

After a stellar reveal trailer that aired during BlizzCon 2018, the latest Overwatch hero, Ashe, has a lot of fans excited to test both her and B.O.B out on the live servers. Unfortunately, while excitement was at an all-time high following her reveal, there was no word on when we could expect the gun-wielding, dynamite throwing hero to officially hit the servers. Thankfully, Blizzard quickly rectified this by announcing that Ashe has officially hit the PTR.

Seen in the above video, our lord and savior Jeff Kaplan reveals that both Ashe and B.O.B are now available to test out in the PTR test servers. For those that haven’t had a look at her kit yet, here it is below:

  • Role: Damage –  Ashe quickly fires her rifle from the hip or uses her weapon’s aim-down sights to line up a high damage shot. She blasts enemies by throwing dynamite, and her coach gun packs enough punch to put some distance between her and her foes. And Ashe is not alone, as she can call on her omnic ally B.O.B., to join the fray when the need arises.
  • The Viper – Ashe’s semi-automatic rifle fires quick shots, or she can use her aim-down sights for a more damaging, precise shot.
  • Dynamite – Ashe throws an explosive that detonates after a short delay or immediately when shot. The explosion from Dynamite also lights enemies on fire, dealing damage over time.
  • Coach Gun – Ashe blasts enemies in front of her, knocking them away and propelling herself backward for added mobility.
  • B.O.B. – Ashe summons her trusted omnic sidekick, B.O.B., who charges forward and knocks enemies into the air, then lays down suppressing fire with his arm cannons.

There is currently no word on when Ashe and B.O.B will hit the official servers, though since they are now on the PTR, it shouldn’t be too long of a wait.

Overwatch is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
