She's leader of the Deadlock Gang, and seems to have a history with McCree, although they're clearly not getting along at the moment.

Alongside a character reveal video the official Overwatch Twitter posted: "Introducing Ashe-leader of the Deadlock Gang and rebellious gunslinger who's not afraid to get her hands dirty". While Echo might not be ready to be officially revealed in-game, she has been confirmed to be Overwatch's thirtieth hero.

Ashe comes with a skill set that relies on a player's mechanical skills to some extent; her weapon, Viper, is a semi-automatic rifle that fires quick shots and needs to be reloaded one bullet at a time. She can also throw sticks of dynamite that detonate when shot (or after a short delay) and light enemies on fire dealing damage over time.

BlizzCon 2018 kicks off today, and, of course, the show's opening ceremonies have been packed with new content announcements, including the reveal of the 29th Overwatch Hero. Then there's the coach gun, a sawed-off shotgun that knocks Ashe and her targets backward. The conclusion of the short reveals that an Omnic robot named Echo was inside Route 66's payload. Not only can she hurl dynamite at her enemies and punch McCree square in his handsome face, but for her ultimate ability she can summon Bob to wreak havoc on her enemies.

At the "Overwatch: What's Next" panel, game developers said Bob was almost a hero unto himself and joked that Ashe is hero 29, but Bob is hero 29.5.
