Wraith Form
Non-damaging and self-buff type
+50% movement speed
Lasts 3 seconds
8-second cooldown
Reaper becomes a shadow for a short period of time. While in this form, he takes no damage and is able to pass through enemies and a slight speed increase, but cannot fire his weapons or use other abilities.
Default Key: (PC LShift, PS L1, XB LB)

Details Edit

Reaper moves faster and becomes intangible and invincible in this form: he gains the ability to pass through enemies and is unaffected by enemies' attacks and debuffs. This ability also removes Reaper's target in Soldier: 76's Tactical Visor or McCree's Deadeye. Using this ability also sheds any debuffs on Reaper. While in Wraith Form, Reaper cannot attack or use any other ability, but can cancel the ability using Primary Fire. However, Reaper is still able to contest points and receive healing and buffs from allied Mercy, Zenyatta, Lúcio, and Ana when in Wraith Form.
