In Overwatch’s story universe, Doomfist is a leader of Talon, the criminal antagonist group at odds with Overwatch. In the above animated origin story, Doomfist explains his views regarding strength and conflict.

In Overwatch gameplay, Doomfist is designed to be an close-quarters, ability-oriented hero with unique AoE and stun attacks. Here is a brief breakdown of Doomfist’s abilities:

  • Hand Cannon (Basic Attack): A projectile weapon with four shots that automatically regenerate ammunition during combat.
  • The Best Defense (Passive): Dealing ability damage grants personal shields.

  • Rising Uppercut: A melee attack that sends enemies upwards into the air.

  • Meteor Strike (Ultimate): Doomfist leaps into the air (entirely off-map) and can select an area to deal a devastating AoE strike.


Doomfist is currently available to play on Overwatch’s Public Test Region (PTR), and will be available to the public after testing has concluded.
