Details Edit

For the information about attacks which is able to pierce through Reinhardt's barrier, see Barrier.

Reinhardt projects a wide rounded rectangular barrier in front of him. The barrier has 2000 health, and when not in use will regain approximately 200 health per second after 2 seconds of disuse. Reinhardt will have reduced movement speed and enter third person mode while this is active. Reinhardt can aim and move the barrier by looking to another direction.

The barrier will show cracks when its health is lower than 1000; more cracks will appear if its health gets under 500. Reinhardt will warn his teammates with a voice line when the barrier's health is lower than 400.

If the barrier is destroyed, there is a 5-second cooldown before it can be used again. The Barrier Field's health is displayed next to Reinhardt's health, and also above the crosshair while active.

In the Game Options, Reinhardt has an option that affects his Barrier Field:

  • Toggle Barrier: When enabled, pressing the appropriate button will toggle the Barrier Field on and off. Otherwise, the button must be held.
