Sleep Dart
Stunning linear projectile type

60 m/s projectile speed
0.5 second cast time
Lasts 5.5 seconds
12-second cooldown
✘ Cannot headshot
Ana fires a dart from her sidearm, rendering an enemy unconscious (though any damage will rouse them).
Default Key: (PC LShift, PS L1, XB LB)


Ana fires a projectile that will put any enemy it hits to sleep. The victim will then lie on the ground for 5.5 seconds, with the snoring effect above them. This effect will prevent the victim from moving, turning, or using any abilities. If they take any damage, they will have 0.5 second recovery delay before waking up.

The projectile takes 0.5 seconds to fire, and cannot be manually canceled.

Take note that if an enemy Genji is fast enough, he can deflect the Sleep Dart and temporarily incapacitate Ana or one of her teammates.


When using Sleep Dart against an enemy Pharah using Barrage, a line will trigger where Ana says, "I think justice could use a nap." This is a reference to Pharah's Ultimate voice line, "Justice rains from above!".
