Roadhog restores a chunk of his health over a brief period of time.
Default Key: (PC E, PS R1, XB RB)

Details Edit

Roadhog pulls out a small gas container and sniffs the gas in it for a short period, restoring a portion of his health. While healing, Roadhog cannot move or use any other ability, but is still able to pivot or look around.

Tips Edit

Below are a few tips on using Take A Breather:

  • If possible, use this ability around corners to maximize the healing. If not, face away from the enemies to avoid being shot in the head.
  • Though it is mainly situational, using this ability also allows Roadhog to contest a point for a second or two.

Trivia Edit

  • Printed on the container is a biohazard symbol, a chemical hazard symbol, Roadhog's pig symbol with crossed out eyes, and a warning label:

Please consult instructions before using.
Improper handling of device and[sic] cause
serious injury, death, or mass destruction.

  • The pressurized chemical mixture helps to counteract the effects of radiation exposure.[1]
