Overwatch 2 Clip Shows How Dangerous Mercy Can Be When Using Her Gun

A fan of Monitor 2 shared a clip of support character Mercy absolutely decimating an opposing team with her gun, winning the game in the process. Over the years, many fans of Blizzard’s hero shooter have complained that Mercy is overpowered, and for some players, this video may serve to bolster those claims.


Mercy is a supporting character in Monitor 2, able to heal teammates and provide crucial damage buffs that can help turn the tide of battle. His Caduceus Staff allows him to heal his allies and provide a buff that temporarily bypasses barriers, making him an invaluable addition to any Monitor 2 crew. While not designed as a primarily offensive character, Mercy’s Caduceus Blaster pistol allows her to deliver death from above when combined with her ultimate ability, Valkyrie. The Caduceus Blaster features a high rate of fire and a larger hitbox than many other weapons in the Monitor 2which led to some players asking Blizzard to nerf Mercy’s weapon.
