Overwatch 2‘s newest hero Soujourn will be a Canadian armed with a railgun, Blizzard detailed over this past weekend.

Lead Hero Designer Geoff Goodman declared that Soujourn was designed around the railgun itself as part of a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming multiplayer shooter.

Saying that Soujourn was “a lot of people’s favourite in-house” at Blizzard, Goodman said the railgun has a “really powerful shot that can rip through enemies if you’re really accurate with it.

“She’s all about that aim skill. So if you’re got that aim skill, you’re going to love her.”

Soujourn features at around the 11-minute mark of the video below.

Overwatch 2 isn’t expected until 2022.
