Forget Ashe, Bob is Available Now on the Overwatch PTR

Overwatch's newest hero is live on the Overwatch PTR.

Ashe, the cowboy outlaw and latest hero to join the Overwatch roster is now available on the PC Public Test Region.

Blizzard unveiled Ashe during the Overwatch segment of the BlizzCon 2018 opening ceremonies where she became popular rather quickly. I mean, she's a badass cowboy gangster, that's a pretty good hook for any character. Just look at Red Dead Redemption 2.

Anyways, Ashe packs a couple of tricks up her sleeve as Overwatch's newest Attacker. She uses a mid-range rifle as her primary weapon which needs to be reloaded after each shot and she also has some dynamite which can be used as a trap or shot at to detonate.

Ashe's ultimate attack summons Bob, her Omnic butler/partner-in-crime who behaves and attacks independently of Ashe. He also has a robot mustache and is precious.

To play in the PTR simply download it via the Battle.net launcher. You can head over to the Overwatch tab and select PTR as a region before downloading the client. No word yet on when Ashe will be available on public servers, but new heroes typically take a couple weeks before launch.
