Symmetra sets up a small turret that automatically fires speed-reducing blasts at the nearest enemy within range. Several turrets can be built on the battlefield at once.
Default Key: (PC LShift, PS L1, XB LB)

Details Edit

Symmetra throws a small turret that fires a laser at targets within 10 meters when placed, and can be destroyed while travelling. This laser deals 60 damage per second and slows the target's movement speed. The slowing effects will stack if multiple turrets attack one target.

These turrets can be placed on any surface and have 25 hp each. Up to 3 turrets may be placed, and Symmetra may have up to 3 turrets in reserve. Symmetra can see her turrets' locations through walls, and is notified in this way when they are attacking an enemy or if they have been destroyed.
