Brigitte is a new hero in Overwatch, and according to her backstory, she is the youngest daughter of weapon inventor Torbjörn Lindholm, and she was the first of his children to show an interest in mechanical engineering.

 

Brigitte spent a lot of her free time at her father’s workshop, honing her talents and learning the profession. Her craftsmanship is nearly on par with her father’s, although she is more interested in armour fabrication and defensive systems than her father, who is a famous weapon maker. She remained on the route of a craftswoman, but her intentions altered with time, thanks to the influence of a close family friend, Reinhardt Wilhelm. Wilhelm grew up hearing stories about heroes and gallantry from her mother. Reinhardt stated that after Wilhelm’s retirement and the fall of Overwatch, he would go on a journey to deliver justice as a Knight-errant. Brigitte requested if she might accompany him on his great journey as a squire, and Reinhardt consented.

As squire, Brigitte had several duties, the most essential of which was to ensure that Reinhardt’s Crusader armour was maintained in good shape. In the process, she discovered that her primary responsibility was to look after Reinhardt himself, as the years of combat had taken their toll on him, and that serving solely as a mechanic to maintain Reinhardt’s armor and weapons wouldn’t suffice, and that the best solution she could think of for assisting Reinhardt was to become a warrior herself. Reinhardt taught her how to fight, and she secretly built her own set of armour, and now she stands by Reinhardt’s side, defending him and those in need as part of her quest to make the world a better place.

She, like other heroes, has unique powers, including:

  • Brigitte’s melee weapon, the Rocket Flail, has a long range, allowing her to hit several opponents with a single swing.
  • Brigitte tosses a Repair Pack to an ally, which heals them. Any healing that exceeds an ally’s maximum health grants them armour instead.
  • Brigitte’s flail is thrown a great distance, inflicting damage and knocking an opponent away from her.
  • Brigitte creates a frontal energy barrier that absorbs a limited amount of damage.
  • Brigitte may sprint forward to shock an opponent after her Barrier Shield has been deployed.
  • Inspire – When Brigitte uses her flail to strike foes, she heals surrounding friends over time.
  • Rally – Brigitte travels faster and gives armour to all surrounding friends that lasts until they are damaged.
