Ultimate Ability: Teleporter
Cast-time ultimate type
Object-deploying ability type
6 charges
2 sec cast
Lasts until destroyed or depleted of charges

Symmetra places a teleporter exit pad at her current location, and connects it to a teleporter entry pad at her team’s starting point. Allies can travel through the entry pad to the exit pad instantly, enabling them to return to the fight swiftly after being defeated.

Default Key: (PC Q, PS Tri, XB Y)
"Teleporter online, I have opened the path."


Symmetra creates a one-way teleporter that allows teammates in the spawn room to instantly teleport to a location that Symmetra links it to. When it is placed, the other end of the teleporter is instantly created in Symmetra's team's current spawn room. The teleporter can be used up to six times before it vanishes. It can also be destroyed by enemies; it has 50 regular health, and 350 shield health, for a collective 400 health. After 3 seconds of not taking damage, the shield health will regenerate at rate of 25 health every second.

The teleporter takes two seconds to create. As long as the teleporter is active, Symmetra cannot gain ultimate charge.

A Symmetra on the enemy team will say nothing, but an allied Symmetra says "Teleporter online. I have opened the path." When she places a teleporter, a member on her enemies team will announce its existence and prompt their teammates to find it. The first enemy to spot a teleporter will inform their teammates about the finding with a voice line. The same occurs when it is destroyed by an enemy.

Symmetra will also announce the status of her teleporter if it is attacked by enemies, or destroyed, or expend all its uses.

As of the September 1, 2016 patch, Symmetra now communicates how many charges the teleporter has left when using the "Ultimate Status" communication.
