Winston embraces his animal nature, significantly boosting his health and making him very difficult to kill, strengthening his melee attack, and allowing him to use his Jump Pack ability more frequently. While raging, Winston can only make melee and Jump Pack attacks.

Default Key: (PC Q, PS Tri, XB Y)

Details Edit

While activated, Winston will turn red and his eyes will spark lightning. Winston gains several advantages:

  • At the moment of the casting the maximum amount of health increases from 400 to 900, giving a total of 900 health and 100 armor. Armor and health is fully replenished.
  • Jump Pack cooldown is reduced from 6 seconds to 2 seconds.
  • Speed increases by 30%.
  • Melee attacks deal 40 damage and have large knockback effect.

Tesla Cannon and Barrier Projector cannot be used during Primal Rage, but Winston can still use his Jump Pack alongside melee attacks.

Regardless of whether it's an ally, enemy, or your own Winston, you will hear a loud roar.
