0.5 sec cast
Lasts 15.5 seconds

Widowmaker’s recon visor allows her to see the heat signatures of her targets through walls and objects for a moderate amount of time. This enhanced vision is shared with her allies.

Default Key: (PC Q, PS Tri, XB Y)
"No one can hide from my sight."

Details Edit

While Infra-Sight is active, enemies not within line of sight will appear through walls as red silhouettes to Widowmaker and her team. Infra-Sight persists after death.

A Widowmaker on the enemy team will say "Personne n'échappe à mon regard," while an allied Widowmaker and player-controlled Widowmaker shout "No one can hide from my sight."

Trivia Edit

  • Her Recon Visor detects a broad range of electromagnetic radiation, making enemy heat signatures visible.[1]
  • When equipped with "Huntress" or "Comtesse" skin, her ultimate voice line is changed into "No one can hide from the huntress" when heard from ally's and player's perspective.
  • Despite "infra" referring to emitting heat, not all things that would emit heat show from her ultimate, such as Riptire. Ironically, Widowmaker, whom is cold-blooded, still appears during Infra-Sight.
  • Riptire, turrets, and teleporters are not shown during Infra-Sight.
  • It is worth noting that Widowmaker is the only non-support character that uses her ally ultimate line from a self-perspective.
