The departure lounge for Adawe International Terminal opens directly onto the city streets.[1]

Numbani is one of the locations in Overwatch. It is an Assault/Escort map.

Known as the "City of Harmony", Numbani is one of the few places where omnics and humans live as equals. This collaboration has led to the creation of one of the world's greatest and most technologically advanced cities in the short time since its establishment after the end of the Omnic Crisis. As part of this year's Unity Day festivities celebrating the city's founding, the gauntlet of the infamous Doomfist is being exhibited at the Numbani Heritage Museum.

Before the March 21, 2017 patch, the payload in this map was a carrier with a glass case containing Doomfist's gauntlet. Currently, it is a carrier with an empty and broken glass case. The attacking team must escort it to the Numbani Heritage Museum.

Built shortly after the Omnic Crisis, Numbani is one of few cities where omnics and humans have the same rights. The collaboration has made the city one of the world's most technologically advanced, and every year they celebrate its founding with Unity Day. Numbani is also the home of Efi Oladele, a young prodigy in robotics and artificial intelligence.

For this year's Unity Day, the Numbani Heritage Museum has opened an exhibit on Doomfist, featuring the villain's gauntlet. However, the Unity Day festival had been postponed due to anonymous threats. Later, Doomfist initiated an attack, which resulted in the destruction of multiple OR15 Defense Bots and Adawe International Airport. The gauntlet was also stolen from Numbani's possession.
