He Came in Like a Wrecking Ball…

Meet Hammond! Blizzard announced the tinkering fur ball in late June and he is finally making his debut on July 24th.

Hammond isn’t just a tank. He can also deal a great amount of damage when at his strongest. He is also a great escape artist with his grappling hook. Making a quick getaway is key to his survivability. Not to mention he has more mobility than the other tanking heroes.

Hammond is a Tank hero with a formidable line of abilities including:

  • Adaptive Shield – Create temporary personal shields. The amount increases with more enemies nearby.
  • Grappling Claw – Launch a grappling claw to rapidly swing around the area. Enables high-speed collisions to damage and knock back enemies.
  • Minefield – Deploy a massive field of proximity mines.
  • Piledriver – Slam the ground below to damage and launch enemies upward.
  • Quad Cannons – Automatic assault weapons.
  • Roll – Transforms Hammond into a ball and increase maximum movement speed.
