Ana nanoboost
Ultimate Ability: Nano Boost
Ally-targeting buff hitscan ultimate type
50% damage boost, 50% damage resistance
40 m range
0.15 sec cast
8 sec duration

After Ana hits one of her allies with a combat boost, they deal more damage, and take less damage from enemies’ attacks.

Default Key: (Q, Y)
"You're powered up, get in there!"


Ana targets one ally and shoot an injection to grants them a boost. Nano-Boosted players will glow blue/red and sparkle with electric effects. They also received a buff for 8 seconds; their attack damage is increased by 50%, and inflicted damage is reduced by 50%.

The boost only works for that hero and will not affect that hero's indirect damage sources, such as turrets, mines, and other unconnected weapons and abilities. For example, Torbjörn's turrets and Junkrat's RIP-Tire will not have a boost on their damage and defense. Furthermore, if D.Va activates self-destruct sequence or call a new mech after receiving a boost, she will lose the boost and its benefits in her new mode (although the sound effect still be heard until the time it's supposed to end).

The injection is a hitscan attack. It can be shot through enemies's bodies and barriers, as long as Ana still is able to see the target. It cannot be blocked and deflected.

In the Game Options, Ana has an option that affects her Nano Boost:

  • Toggle Beam Connection: Adjust the sensitivity of Nano Boost's targeting. The less value it is, the closer the distance between crosshair and the teammates has to be for activating the Nano Boost.

The player that controls Ana and the ally who receives the boost will hear "You are powered up, get in there." All other allies will hear "Nano Boost administered." Enemy Ana will shout "وريهم قوتك" when she activates Nano Boost. After that, the hero who get boosted will shout a line to inform other players.
