In Tank mode, Bastion extends wheeled treads and a powerful long-range cannon. The cannon’s explosive shells demolish targets in a wide blast radius, but Bastion can only remain in this mode for a limited time.

Details Edit

Bastion can transform into a Tank in both of his configurations. Bastion's defense in Sentry configuration is significant tougher, under the influence of Ironclad passive ability, which gives it 20% reduction of incoming damage.

Shells fired in Tank configuration will travel on a straight line, dealing 205 damage to enemies on contact or within range the resulting explosion. Shells deal 28 self-damage if they explode near Bastion. The shell's explosion also pushes Bastion and enemies away if it explodes within their range.

After 8 seconds, Bastion will return to Recon configuration, regardless of which mode it was in before activating the ultimate ability.

When Tank mode is activated, Bastion will emit a distinct fanfare to alert enemies and allies.

Trivia Edit

  • The assault cannon launches heavy ordinance that requires high power. It can only be deployed for brief periods.[1]
  • Bastion has no critical hit points anywhere on it during the ultimate, but is still able to be stunned, pushed, pinned, and killed.
  • Unlike Sentry mode's turret configuration, which Bastion fully transforms into without clipping or other tricks, Tank mode's treads and barrel appear out of nothing during the transformation. This is a side-effect of Tank being a replacement for Bastion's original early-beta ultimate, Remote Mine. Bastion's original character model was only meant to transform into the turret, so giving the character a second transformation necessitated using some "cheats" to accommodate the new form.
