Blizzard's most recent animated short for Overwatch sends us to Dorado, where Soldier: 76 mercilessly takes on a group of thugs.

The animation, titled "Hero," begins with a young girl leaving her home, only to be harassed by nasty bullies who rob her pouch of cash. Soldier: 76, who appears in Dorado to investigate the illegal activities of these criminals, swoops in only to find the young girl in danger, too.

This is the fourth animation in a series of impressive short films about Overwatch's characters and world, and this one is just as superb as the others.
