Ashe, New Overwatch Hero Guide
The new overwatch hero has finally been released on competitive and I thought it’s about time to tell you guys what each ability does and the base stats on each ability. Ashe is categorized as a DPS (damage hero). Once you pick her up you will agree. The current argument is that she has bumped McCree off the wagon for the new hitscan character to play. Let me know what you think in the comments down below if you think McCree is still viable or not.
Her real name is Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe. She is the current leader of the Deadlock Gang, which was created by her, Jesse McCree, and two others. Her parents were some of the most powerful CEO’s in the world. Instead of following her parents’ footsteps, she became one of the strongest criminal leaders in the world. Though her parents paid little attention to her as a child, they mostly left her in the care of the family’s omnic butler, B.O.B. The omnic butler would later become a member of the Deadlock Gang as well. She eventually called together heads of other major criminal gang organizations to put together a truce amongst the other gangs (or at least stop attacking one another). Now she is at the top of the authorities most wanted list where she continues to make a legacy for herself.
