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. After pressing the ability button, the healing begins after 0.6 seconds and lasts 1 second, restoring up to 300 HP in one use. After the healing is done, 0.4 seconds will pass before Roadhog is able to move again. Whole Hog can be used to cancel this ability at any point.

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.

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