Default Make your own Character Idea

Could use some positivity on the board, any neat ideas for folks?

I think the Omnics could use some evil tanky robots leftover from the war

Neural network style Omnic support character who can warp enemy sensors/vision and boost allies abilities (e.g. lower recoil and/or faster reload times). Ultimate involves inducing a paranoid state in a localized area where all nearby individuals appear to be copies of the Omnic, allowing her to sneak in and around them undetected for assassinations or capturing strategic interests.

Highly proficient at close quarters combat, agile, but delicate. She's best when disrupting the enemy back lines, allowing her team to take advantage of gaps left in enemy defenses.

Originally a physical server, she was repurposed during the Omnic wars to destroy enemy communications. Due to the nature of infiltration, her physical chassis was slimmed down to look benign, similar to the holographic communication systems used by all human forces. However, packed in it are high quality, high intensity holographic generators, processors, and a revolutionary "neural" gel, that can re-arrange its physical schematics to fit and interface with any and all enemy systems. Unfortunately, this comes at the cost of internal heating issues, forcing her to maintain almost no armor or mass that could prevent damage if she is discovered. Instead, her holographic generators act to misdirect physical force away from her vital systems. Still some things can't be hidden as easily, and her modular nature means that thin folding plates and open wires or cooling tubes can give away her vulnerabilities for those who are aware.

That's what I've been saying. This game could use some more villains - and robots. Definitely needs more robots.

We need an American support character that can do a lot of recon and electronic warfare.

I had this idea for a Russian guy called "Morozov" who's using ice-powers. His backstory was basically that he was part of original Overwatch, but his powers came from experiments the Russian agents did on him. After Overwatch was disbanded and all the funding for his project dissipated, the mutations caused him to go crazy and he's now a villain who works with the Talon in some nihilistic mission to freeze the world. His powers would be all about slowing and stunning other people, as well as just direct damage.

a geokinetic hero, with potiental abilities such as putting up walls to block gunfire, pillars of stone to stun/knockback enemies, even simple earthquakes if needs be. there ultimate is a large stone fist they send hurtling in a straight line, like reinstadts charge but long distance.

Omacron is the only one in this thread who got on my level.

Are the rest of you even trying?

How viable do you think non-humanoid designs would be?

Something like Cho'gath or Rek'sai from League in physical design but in the Overwatch engine.

I'd say Winston (and the Robots) is about as far as you can take it given the limits on characters needing to fit into the setting.

Maybe a "jar" type character, as others have suggested, but it would need to make sense I suppose. I fear there would be serious hitbox issues/abuse.

A jar type character would have to be psychic or something, or in some kind of mechsuit.

Or hideous (awesome) organic flesh armor.

I'd love a cyborg, someone who, during the Omnic crisis, decided "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!"... and then the robots got beat and he's left holding the bag as a turncoat, turning to mercenary work because he's not accepted into society otherwise.


Oh, and maybe someone who's overdosed on the internet. Overwatch takes place in the near future, presumably the internet is even more important in human culture than it is today. Someone like a Freakazoid for the 21st century.

Neat ideas, alternatively tho: Someone who fought omnics and used the defeated body parts as enhancements to kill more omnics.


EDIT:


Any new ideas inspired by the latest shorts?

I want to see a character based off of Lucille Bluth from Arrested Development.

Or maybe Mallory Archer, from Archer, since they're almost the same character.
