At its height, Overwatch possessed one of the most advanced armaments on the planet, which could be traced to the workshop of an ingenious engineer named Torbjörn Lindholm. Before the Omnic Crisis, Torbjörn had gained notoriety for designing weapons systems used by countries around the world. However, his belief that technology must serve a better vision for humanity put him at odds with his employers, who desired to control his weapons using networked computer intelligence. Torbjörn had a deep mistrust of sentient robotic intelligence, and while many of his peers wrote this off as paranoia, his worst fears were realized when the robot populations of the world turned against their human creators during the Omnic Crisis. Because of his engineering genius, he was recruited to join the original Overwatch strike team, and his many inventions proved integral to ending the crisis. In the years that followed, Overwatch became an international peacekeeping force, and Torbjörn remained a critical resource for all of its technological needs and signature weapons systems. But in the aftermath of Overwatch's fall, many of Torbjörn's weapons were stolen or stashed away around the world. Feeling responsible for his creations, Torbjörn is determined to stop them from falling into the wrong hands and wreaking havoc on the innocent.


Rivet Gun: fires either a singular piece of molten metal or numerous shards at a reduced rate.

Forge hammer: small hammer used to harm enemies or repair his turret

Armor pack: Torbjörn collects pieces of scrap from ally and enemy corpses, if he get enough, he can through armor on the ground that can heal himself or allies with damage reducing armor

Build turret: Torbjörn builds an enemy tracking turret; STAGE 1, it has one barrel and fires one shot per second. STAGE 2, the turret fire quicker, doubles its strength and gets a second barrel. STAGE 3, its strength is almost tripled, it fires even quicker, it is now ablaze and even launches rockets (only available during Molten Core)

Molten Core: Torbjörn gets additionally armor, attacks quicker, his turret reaches STAGE 3, and he is on fire.

He also has lava in his cybernetic arm.


Torbjörn sets up his turret in a favorable place, where it wouldn’t get shot, but has a good view of the chokepoint, this also benefits his ability to through armor packs on the field. He sticks by it to kill anyone willing to eliminate it, and to reaper his “baby”. He has no escape abilities, his turret can only track enemies in its range that are visible, bursty tanks and snipers can easily kill the turrets, and then the big, err, small man himself.
