Orisa throws out a stationary barrier that can protect her and her allies from enemy fire.
Default Key: (PC E, PS R1, XB RB)


For information about which attacks can pierce the barrier, see Barrier.

Orisa launches an arcing projectile which places a stationary semi-dome barrier where it lands. If the projectile hits a wall before landing, it will ricochet and alter the barrier's position. Despite being a projectile, it cannot be deflected or deleted. The barrier functions as any normal barrier and has 900 HP with a duration of 20 seconds. The ability has a cooldown time of 8 seconds, meaning Orisa can replace the barrier before its time runs out.
