Details Edit

Widowmaker's Widow's Kiss can function as an automatic rifle. Its primary fire can shoot 10 shot per second with a relatively wide bullet spread. Each shot deals 13 damage and is immune to falloff damage.

Widowmaker will scope in by holding her secondary fire button, while Widow's Kiss transforms itself into a sniper rifle. During this time, Widowmaker's movement speed will be reduced. The longer Widowmaker stays scoped in, the more powerful her next shot will be. It takes 0.75 seconds to charging from 0% to 100%. A sniper shot will deal 12 damage minimum, if the charge is 0 to 10%. Otherwise, if the charge is n%, the damage of the next shot will be (n×1.2) damage.

Widowmaker will inflict 2.5 times the bodyshot damage with a scoped-in headshot, rather than the standard 2-time multiplier of other weapons. Therefore, she will deal 30 headshot damage at 0% charge and 300 headshot damage at 100%.

In the game options, Widowmaker has two options that affect her Widow's Kiss:

  • Toggle Zoom: When enabled, pressing the appropriate button will toggle the scope on and off. Otherwise, the button must be held.
  • Relative Aim Sensitivity While Zoomed: Adjust the sensitivity of the mouse only while the scope is activated.

Trivia Edit

  • The modular design of Widow's Kiss allows the barrel to extend and retract easily so the rifle can switch between sniper and fully automatic mode.[1]
