Lucio is a Hero in Overwatch.
"Come on, let's bring it together!"
Lúcio can hit his enemies with sonic projectiles or knock them back with a blast of sound.
Lúcio continuously energizes himself—and nearby teammates—with music. He can switch between two songs: one amplifies movement speed, while the other regenerates health.
Cooldown: 12 Seconds
Lúcio increases the volume on his speakers, boosting the effects of his songs.
Protective waves radiate out from Lúcio's Sonic Amplifier, briefly providing him and nearby allies with personal shields.
- Lucio is a fun and challenging hero to play and can provide a little bit of everything to allies in his support role, whether it's boosting everyone's speed or healing or using his ultimate to give everyone around him a shield. His overall speed and wall running are key to his evasiveness and his sonic cannon is surprisingly effective from medium range. He is most effective when hanging close to his allies with his amplifying ability triggered at the moment a burst of speed or increased healing is needed, deploying his ultimate when the team is taking heavy fire.
Lúcio is an international celebrity who inspires social change through his music and actions.
Lúcio Correia dos Santos grew up in Rio de Janeiro, in a poor and crowded favela that was hit hard by the financial upheaval following the Omnic Crisis. As Brazil began the long process of recovery, he wanted to find a way to lift the spirits of those around him. He found his answer in music and its power to bring people together and even help them forget their troubles, if only for a short time. He performed on street corners, in block parties, and as he got older, at a string of legendary underground shows.
But Lúcio's close-knit community was thrown into chaos when the multinational Vishkar Corporation secured a contract to redevelop large tracts of the city. Lúcio and his neighbors had been told that the development would improve their lives. However, that promise never became a reality. Vishkar imposed controls on the residents in the name of building a more orderly society: enforcing curfews, cracking down on what the company perceived as lawless behavior, and exploiting the populace as a cheap labor force.
Lúcio wouldn't stand for it. He stole Vishkar sonic technology that had been used to suppress the people, and he converted it into a tool to rally them to action. In a popular uprising, they drove Vishkar out of their neighborhoods. Lúcio's leadership made him a star overnight and a symbol for positive social change. His music skyrocketed in popularity. Whereas he had once performed locally, he was now filling arenas across the world.
With his newfound fame, Lúcio realizes that he has an opportunity to make a difference and change the world for the better.
