Overwatch players on PC should head over to the PTR and give the game’s newest character Ashe a try.

Ashe is the latest character to be added to the Overwatch roster. She’s playable now on the PTR alongside B.O.B., her omnic Ultimate ability.

Announced at BlizzCon 2018 last weekend, Ashe is the 29th character for the shooter. She was introduced in a new short starring McCree who was once part of her outfit, the Deadlock Gang.

Her abilities include: the Viper semi-automatic rifle; Dynamite which deals damage over time upon detonation; Coach Gun which knocks enemies back; and B.O.B. which will knock enemies down and perform cover with suppressing fire.

If you’re interested in looking over the various skins for Ashe, reddit user jackk445 shows them off over on Imgur.

You can also take a look at how her and B.O.B. look in the Overwatch League skins.
