The sassy, fierce, Southern-accented leader of the Deadlock Gang, Elizabeth Caledonia "Calamity" Ashe, is the official 29th hero of Overwatch. She is called Ashe and all clues indicate that she and McCree once had an amorous relationship -- though, as lead Overwatch developer Jeff Kaplan pointed out, they appear to be on the outs.
According to Kaplan, Ashe requires "super high mechanical skill." She can use her semi-automatic rifle two ways: to fire quick shots or to snipe for a more precise, high damage shot. She has a knockback ability (called Coach Gun) that can be used to repel others and to rocket jump herself, as well as throwable dynamite (called Dynamite) that both deals instant damage and damage over time.
Her ultimate ability is her trusty companion, B.O.B, an omnic butler, who instantly became a fan favorite after he was featured in the McCree-Ashe short "Reunion." B.O.B "charges forward and knocks enemies into the air, then lays down suppressing fire with his arm cannons."
"Reunion," a cinematic short featuring McCree, Ashe, and B.O.B, was also released at BlizzCon. It previewed future heroes, including a new "mysterious robot" named Echo.
Below are a number of images of Ashe, B.O.B, and their abilities in action.
