Default Key: (PC E, PS R1, XB RB)
Meiplate

Details Edit

Mei creates a wall made of 5 pillars of ice in a line. Each pillar acts as any regular wall would. Each pillar may be destroyed prematurely if they take 500 damage, or if the Payload moves through it. The entire wall may also be destroyed by pressing the button again.

Attacking the Ice Wall (with the exception of melee attacks) will count will count as a missed shot, but will count as damage dealt. This is unknown if this intentionallay part of the ability or not

Before casting, an area will be marked along the ground displaying where it will appear. The wall is perpendicular to Mei's line of sight by default, but pressing the button again will rotate it to be parallel. The wall can hang off of ledges as long as the center is on solid ground.

When it spawns, the wall rises from the ground, and will raise players and other objects with it.
