As mentioned above, Moira's biotic abilities enable her to contribute healing or damage, using Biotic Grasp for short-range options and her Biotic Orbs contributing longer-range smashes and healing.

The new Overwatch character also has a number of interesting abilities to augment her mysterious history. She looks like a bit of an all-rounder.

"In addition, other geneticists were unable to reproduce the results of Moira's research, which further called her discoveries into question". Much like Reaper, however, she also has her Fade ability, which allows her to teleport across a short distance. Reinhardt used to be full of daring-do and an obsession with glory, but like the rest of Overwatch's team, his history has colored his motives for being a part of the team and rejoining it for its latest endeavors.
