Have you tried Sombra on the PTR yet?

Overwatch’s newest (and, uh only) offensive hacker Sombra hit the test realm earlier this week and players are already digging in to see how she plays. Mitch had hands on time with her at BlizzCon and had a “hack of a lot of fun” — his words, not mine. I also tried playing her at BlizzCon, but didn’t understand her kit at all and dragged my team down to humiliating defeat.

But today I discovered this great video, Everything Sombra Can & Can’t Hack. These gamers literally tested every hero ability against Sombra’s hack (her right click ability that can disable all hero abilities except for their basic attack and passive abilities.) They also tested what abilities her ultimate affected.

I learned that she can’t hack while she is being attacked (do it while she is invisible), that she can take down Reinhard’s shield and knock Bastion out of turret mode, but can’t touch Mei in her ice block. So much to remember! But good to know going in.

Now I’m going to have to try playing her again on the test realm and get better with her so when she hits the live game, I can really shine.

Have you tried her out yet?
