Unorganized quotes Edit

5 4 3 2 1

A little help here?



All in a days work.

Attack the objective.

By my calculations, oh forget it, let’s move.

Coming through.

Count down to defensive victory initiated. 

Don’t worry, there’s still time.

Don’t worry, I’ve got you.

Enemies detected.

Enemies reengaging.

Enemy teleporter destroyed.

Enemy turret neutralized.

Enjoying the exhibit

Escorting the payload.

Every little bit counts.

Every structure has it’s weak point.

Everyone on the objective.

Failure is not an option.

For some reason I’m inclined to trust you.


Get a load of this.

Good luck, sir.

Got your back.

Great shot.

Hang in there.

Have you seen my glasses?

Hi there.

I calculate our chance of survival at 32.33, repeating of course.

I could use some help.

I could use some shields

I don’t hold a grudge, well not anymore.

I don’t think so.

I enjoyed that.

I feel great.

I feel like I’m forgetting something.

I gave it my best.

I get that a lot.

I just spent all day cleaning up in here.

I need armor.

I need healing.

I sense a pattern developing.

I wonder what I got.

If we work together, we can still turn this around.

I’m back.

I’m claiming this objective.

I’m feeling angry.

I’m getting the hang of this.

I’m just trying to do my part.

I’m looking forward to working with you all.

I’m on a roll.

I’m on defense.

I’m on my way.

I’m on the objective. Rally to my position.

I’m with you.


It appears the payload is moving.

It was all going so well.

Its all comes down to this

It’s great to see the gang back together.

It’s nice to feel appreciated.

I’ve got the right stuff.

I’ve leveled up, time to assign those skill points.

I’ve located the teleporter, destroy it.

I’ve reached the objective, let’s coordinate our efforts.

Keep it up

Keep this going and we’ll win this.

Let’s set up here.

Much appreciated.

My ultimate is ready.

Nice shot.

Not this way.

Now that’s a moon shot.

Now that’s more like it.

Now that’s some applied science.

Now that’s teamwork.

Now you are the endangered species.

By my calculations, our defenses will hold if we double our efforts.

One down, everyone pull together.

One for the archives. 

One giant leap for Overwatch.

Onward and upward.

Our enemies are taking the point.

Out of the lab, on to the battle field.

Pardon me.

Payload in transit.

Payload stalled. 

Play times over.

Primal punch.

Priority target identified.

Push forward.


Right away.

See ya later.

Sniper, be careful.

Stop that. I have everything arranged just the way I like it.

Tactical analysis suggests we’re running out of time.

Take cover.

Thanks, Doc.

Thanks, I like yours too.

That smarts.

That was a close one.

That was a failed experiment.

That was awesome.

That would be great.

That’s a great idea.

That’s one small step.

The odds are in our favor, press the attack.

There’s always room for self-improvement.

There’s no stopping me.

They have a teleporter somewhere.

They’re grouping up here.

They’re moving the payload.

This is it, lets make it happen.

This is our target.

This way.

Through the miracle of science.

Time to check the to-do list.

Cursory evaluation indicates time’s running out

Time’s running out, lets keep our defense up

To the moon and back.

Today’s the day, let’s get this satellite to the launch pad.

Together we can solve any problem.

Turret ahead, use caution.


Vital signs normalizing.

We can’t let the payload just sit there.

We could use a healer.

We could use another tank.

We have to get this thing moving again.

We must intercept the payload.

We need to get the odds back in our favor.

We need to move the payload.

We need to stop the payload.

We should go this way.

Weapon system optimized.

We’re doing great, team.

We’re going to lose, press the attack.

We’re losing the objective.

We’ve got the right stuff.

What was my password again?

Where were we?

Winston to the rescue. 

You know what they say, a payload in motion stays in motion.

You’re a life saver.
