How Many Overwatch Characters Are There?


You might be wondering just how many overwatch characters are there. Over the years, Blizzard has added many new agents in Overwatch. In today’s article, we’ll go over each of them. Enjoy!

The first Agent!

During development, one of the first agents created was Tracer. Tracer was based on a character from Titan, possesing similar time-manipulation abilities.


  • Tracer, Age: 26
  • Occupation: Adventurer
  • The base of Operations: London, England
  • Affiliation: Overwatch (formerly)

Her abilities are:

  • PULSE PISTOLS ~ Short-range automatic weapons.
  • BLINK ~ Teleport in the direction you are moving.
  • RECALL ~ Travel back in time to your previous location and health.
  • PULSE BOMB ~ Throw out a powerful sticky explosive.

In essence, this is Tracer’s story:

Lena Oxton (Tracer) was the youngest person ever brought into Overwatch’s experimental flight program. Due to her fearless piloting skills, her higher-ups handpicked her to test the prototype of a teleporting fighter, the Slipstream.

By the way, this is Tracer.

Unfortunately, during its first flight, the aircraft’s teleportation matrix malfunctioned, and it disappeared. Lena was presumed dead.
The accident left her unable to maintain a physical form in the present until Winston invented the chronal accelerator, a device that allows her to control her time frame.
