Weapon and Ultimate

  • Void Accelerator (Omnic Form): Primary Fire fires a stream of projectiles in a fixed pattern. Secondary Fire creates a barrier at the targeted location.
  • Pummel (Nemesis Form): Primary Fire punches forward, creating a wave of piercing energy with every swing. Secondary Fire significantly reduces damage taken from the front and reduces movement speed.

Ramattra General Tips

Ramattra has a lot of similarities to Reinhardt's playstyle, as you want to get in close with the enemies and apply pressure with Nemesis Form. Ramattra's barrier has a very short duration; without Nemesis Form, Ramattra can die very quickly. The best tips for Ramattra are:

  • Rely on corners and natural cover rather than Ramattra's barrier for protection.
  • Nemesis Form is Ramattra's strongest ability.
    • Place the barrier before entering Nemesis Form as it cannot be placed during.
    • Pummel pierces enemy barriers.
    • You can Quick Melee while in Nemesis Form for additional melee damage.
  • Annihilation will last indefinitely while it's latched on to an enemy. It's best used on the objective where enemies want to get to.
    • Ravenous Vortex can help lock enemies in place during Annihilation.
  • Ravenous Vortex can pull Pharah and Echo to the ground. Use this to your advantage.
