Ana tosses a biotic bomb that deals damage to enemies and heals allies in a small area of effect. Affected allies briefly receive increased healing from all sources, while enemies caught in the blast cannot be healed for a few moments.
Default Key: (PC E, PS R1, XB RB)


Ana lobs a grenade that explodes on contact with a player or a solid surface. The explosion has different effects on allies and enemies.

Allies hit by the grenade will:

  • Be healed for 100 HP
  • Receive 50% more health from healing sources for 4 seconds
  • Have a faint yellow border around their health bar and an upwards pointing arrow above it

Enemies hit by the grenade will:

  • Take 60 damage
  • Be unable to heal from any source for 4 seconds
  • Have a faint purple border around their health bar and a crossed out health symbol above it

The "unable to heal" effect will always take priority over "faster healing" effect if a hero has been hit by allied (or self) Ana's grenade and enemy Ana's grenade. Only when the "unable to heal" effect stopped or is removed, the "faster healing" effect will return (if 5 seconds have not passed since the time friendly grenade applied).

Debuff Edit

Ana's Biotic Grenade can be canceled by specific heroes on the enemy team. Invulnerability abilities debuff Ana's anti-healing effect.

Trivia Edit

  • The Biotic technology was originally developed by Mercy. Torbjörn may have helped design the grenade as hinted by the blueprints revealed prior to Ana's release.[1]
