Those lucky few at BlizzCon are getting the chance to try out the newest Overwatch hero, Ashe, before everyone else, so of course, emongg had to try her as well.

Overwatch streamer Jeff 'emongg' Anderson got the chance to try out the game's newest hero along with Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan. Actually giving some context to why the map is shaped the way it is - the gang is known as Deadlock led by the white-haired outlaw Ashe used explosives to destroy the train - has a shootout with said outlaws who he supposedly has had previous encounters with. More information about the new hero will be available at the Overwatch: What's Next panel happening today.

Alongside a character reveal video the official Overwatch Twitter posted: "Introducing Ashe-leader of the Deadlock Gang and rebellious gunslinger who's not afraid to get her hands dirty".

J.R. Smith Tells Reporters He's Hoping to Be Traded from Cleveland
CLEVELAND- The Cleveland Cavaliers will be without their star for at least six weeks. He was briefly in the rotation before coach Tyronn Lue was sacked on Sunday.

"Ashe's semi-automatic rifle fires quick shots, or she can use her aim-down sights for a more damaging, precise shot". The idea of a hero call-in is new to Overwatch, so B.O.B. will truly be one of a kind. Then there's the coach gun, a sawed-off shotgun that knocks Ashe and her targets backward.

Finally, Ashe has the ability to call in her sidekick, B.O.B.

Ashe's ultimate ability summons Bob, her robot that'll rush toward enemies knocking them skyward while shooting his weapons.
