Mercy targets an ally and quickly flies toward their position. Any ally within 30 meters can be targeted, even the soul of dead allies. The ability can be reset midway by either releasing the button if Toggle Guardian Angel is off, otherwise by pressing the button again. Mercy can glide past the targeted ally by using the jump key.
In the Game Options, Mercy has an option that affects her Caduceus Staff:
- Guardian Angel Prefer Beam Target: When enabled, any hero that Mercy is facing will be the default target for Guardian Angel. If disabled, when Mercy has a beam connected to a hero not in front of her, she will fly to the connected hero instead; Mercy only flies to the hero in front of her when the beam is not connected to a hero.
- Toggle Guardian Angel: When enabled, pressing the appropriate button will toggle Guardian Angel; another press will cancel it. Otherwise, the button must be held for the whole flight duration; if the button is let go, the ability will be canceled.
- Guardian Angel Sensitivity: Adjust the sensitivity of Guardian Angel's targeting. The less value it is, the closer the distance between crosshair and the teammates has to be for assigning the target.
