Other Overwatch 2 LGBTQIA+ heroes

Activision Blizzard developers have been inclusive in their hero designs from the very beginning. During the release of the original Overwatch, fans found out Tracer had a girlfriend named Emily. Blizzard has also confirmed Soldier 76 is queer

“From the beginning, we’ve wanted the universe of Overwatch to feel welcoming and inclusive, and to reflect the diversity of our players around the world. As with any aspect of our characters’ backgrounds, their sexuality is just one part of what makes our heroes who they are,” Overwatch 2 devs mentioned to IGN.com.

Meanwhile, you can catch up on Lifeweaver’s abilities, such as Petal Platform. This ability can move entire teams to high grounds and reposition quickly. The ability that might act as an ultimate saving grace for erratic teammates, Life Grip can save teammates when they suddenly find themselves surrounded by five enemies and are probably shouting in their mic — “Where’s my team?” Well, now you have an answer.

Speaking of the tree-hugging hero, Lifeweaver’s Tree of Life ability gives the opponents a target to destroy. The 1000 HP Lifebar of the tree presents a new target for opponents. You can read all about Lifeweaver’s abilities here.
