Reaper is a Hero in Overwatch.
"Death walks among you."
Reaper tears enemies apart with twin shotguns.
Cooldown: 8 Seconds
Reaper becomes a shadow for a short period of time. While in this form, he takes no damage and is able to pass through enemies, but cannot fire his weapons or use other abilities.
Cooldown: 10 Seconds
After marking a destination, Reaper disappears and reappears at that location.
In a blur of motion, Reaper empties both hellfire shotguns at breakneck speed, dealing massive damage to all nearby enemies.
- Reaper collects souls from fallen foes that replenishes his health
- Reaper's shotguns are extremely powerful but are only effective within 10 meters or so. As a result the rest of his abilities revolve around getting up close to foes without taking damage. His ultimate is a great area cleaner especially if battling for a control point. His relatively straightforward loadout makes him a good offensive choice for a newcomer. Advanced players can turn him into a hit and run wraith who teleports in and makes a kill only to disappear back into the shadows.
Some speak of a black-robed terrorist known only as the Reaper. His identity and motives are a mystery. What is known is that where he appears, death follows.
The Reaper is an extremely volatile mercenary, a ruthless and remorseless killer responsible for terrorist attacks across the world. He has fought in many armed conflicts in the last decades, showing no loyalty to any cause or organization.
Survivors have described a black shadow ghosting unscathed through the most hellish battlefields. The few bodies recovered of those he kills are pale, empty husks drained of life, their cells showing signs of intense degradation. It is possible that he is a byproduct of failed genetic alteration which forces his cells to simultaneously decay and regenerate at a hyper-accelerated rate.
Those attempting to track his movements have begun to see a pattern in his appearances. They believe that Reaper is hunting former Overwatch agents and systematically eliminating them.
