In the game called Overwatch, abilities are known as the offensive and defensive capabilities of the heroes. Normal abilities are able to be accessed via keybinds which are able to be swapped based on player preference in Game Options. They can help to differentiate roles from one another, as well as heroes from one another within roles.
- Damage is the name of a sweeping role used to contain heroes that deal a very big amount of damage each second. Before the combination into this single category, damage heroes were previously one of two kinds:
- In general, offense heroes have higher damage weapons and abilities compared to tanks and some defense heroes. They are usually amazing duelists with high mobility and good burst or sustained damage.
- Defense ones may have long range weapons or the ability to make turrets, and excel at area denial.
- Tank heroes can protect allies, occupy the front line, and disrupt enemies. They have the power that protect themselves and the others with shields and crowd control.
- Support ones heal, buff, debuff, and provide utility.
Abilities are unofficially divided into some categories; an ability is able to belong to a few categories. Those include ranged abilities, melee abilities, movement abilities, barrier abilities, healing abilities, buff or debuff abilities, crowd control abilities, and area of effect abilities.

Mercy is such a great example of how a lot of characters of Overwatch have hidden abilities. In this case, this one passively heals herself when out of combat, and this passive heal is buffed if she is healing allies. All the things become obvious, but the potential of her other basic abilities is able to be magnified in the right company. A possible combination is with an airborne Pharah, Mercy is able to jump to her position with Guardian Angel, use her Float ability to hover with Pharah above the battlefield, and by the time you are falling the cooldown for Guardian Angel has reset.
Beyond even this please keep an eye out for the little bonuses that the Overwatch does not explicitly tell you above, an especially useful one is that the blade dash of Genji will reset after a successful kill or assist.
