Details Edit

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

Winston places down a projector that creates a sphere-shaped barrier which has 600 health and a radius of 5 meter around the projector. The projector is affected by gravity; If Winston deploys it in the air, it will drop straight down. The barrier can also be placed on moving objects. It will disappear after 5 seconds, and it can be destroyed earlier. The cooldown begins when the barrier is placed.
