Making Overwatch 2’s Sojourn was hard because ‘railguns are kinda overpowered’

Blizzard is pretty excited about Sojourn, Overwatch 2‘s first new hero that will be playable in the upcoming closed beta. The studio is eager to show her off not only because she’s the first black woman on the hero roster after six years of updates, but also because she’s packing a powerful FPS staple: the railgun.

Blizzard has been thinking about adding a railgun to the Overwatch weapon pool for a long time, but struggled with how to balance around such a powerful, precise weapon. The first prototype resembled a classic Quake 2 railgun with high damage, hitscan precision, low recoil, and no scope required.
