Details Edit

Symmetra grants a teammate 25 shield points. She can target any teammate within range and the shield will last until the teammate dies, or the Symmetra who applied the Photon shield changes into other heroes.

Two Symmetras cannot apply multiple shield to one target; and although Symmetra cannot apply a shield to herself, she can apply it to another Symmetra. If D.Va aborts her mech (by getting damage or using Self-Destruct), she will need to be applied Shield again when playing without mech, and again after calling a mech. Any hero who dies and is resurrected by Mercy will need to be applied Shield again.

As of the December 13, 2016 patch, this ability has been removed and replaced with Photon Barrier.
