Details Edit

When Pulse Bomb is activated, Tracer throws a small bomb that sticks to any surface or hero it lands on, dealing a maximum of 400 damage within a 3-meter radius. Once the bomb touches a surface or an enemy, its 1-second fuse will begin and cannot be reset or cancelled. The damage is subject to falloff the further enemies are from the bomb. The explosion can damage Tracer if she is within its blast radius, but it won't hurt her allies.

The bomb will display a flashing caution sign on players' UI. If the bomb is stuck to an enemy, the word "STUCK" will appear on both Tracer's and the victim's screen.

Tracer shouts "Time's up!", "Wait for it!", "Here you go!" or "Bombs away!" if the bomb lands on a surface. If the bomb is successfully stuck to an enemy, Tracer shouts "Gotcha!" "Lock on!", "Nailed it!", "You need a time out!", or "Right on target!" You can hear all of those phrases from any perspective, allies', enemies' or Tracer herself.

Trivia Edit

  • The Pulse Bomb is capable of sticking to any physical surface. Its explosive output is rated to destroy most personal armor and infantry defenses.[1]
