Blizzard continues to roll out extended gameplay footage of Overwatch, putting individual characters in the spotlight. The latest to be featured is Tracer, a tricky, time-manipulating teleporter.

I had the chance to play against Tracer in a couple of matches of Overwatch at PAX East. Used well, her ability to rewind the clock a few seconds to regenerate health, ammo, and zip out of danger can be devastating. She can rush right back in and pick you apart the rest of the way.

Tracer can also store up to three "blinks" that allow her to teleport in a straight line. Her ultimate ability is a sticky bomb that attaches to any surface or, if you aim well, an enemy. 

For more on Overwatch, you can check out videos featuring Hanzo, McCree, Mercy, and Zenyatta. You can also read our hands-on impressions from PAX East.
