Recently more and more people start to platy the game: Overwatch, and the Mercy, one of game characters in overwatch, who gradually becomes popular with many players. However, the only thing they know is that Mercy is a  functional and team character, as for the other funny and mysterious stories of Mercy is still unknown to those players, so today I’m going to talk about something about Mercy OW that you don’t know. Without further ado, let’s get it.

Background Story

Mercy is one of the heroes in Overwatch. She is a nanobiologist and a field medic who always stays at the frontline of wars and crises around the world to heal the wounded and imperiled. Mercy’s Valkyrie Suit helps keep her close to teammates like a guardian angel so Mercy can heal, resurrecting or strengthening them with the beams emanating from her Caduceus Staff.

As the guardian angel of all the wounded, Dr. Angela Ziegler is a top healer, a brilliant scientist and a determined pacifist. Ziegler was the head of the surgical department of a leading Swiss hospital before stepping into the field of breakthrough applied nanobiology that can greatly improve the treatment of fatal diseases and injuries. It was her achievements in the medical field that caught the attention of Overwatch.

Since Ziegler’s parents have been killed by the war, she has been extremely opposed to the organization’s peacekeeping through military means from the beginning. But in the end, she realized that Overwatch gave her an opportunity to save more lives. As the head of Overwatch Medical Research, Angela is committed to better treating patients with fatal injuries on the front line. The “Valkyrie” quick-response combat suit was born, and Ziegler also wore this combat suit to participate in many Overwatch missions.

Despite her tremendous contribution to Overwatch, Dr. Ziegler often questioned her superiors and Overwatch’s long-term goals. When Overwatch was dissolved, Dr. Ziegler worked to help those affected by the war. Although she has been helping displaced and helpless refugees around the world most of the time, when innocent people are in danger, Dr. Ziegler will still stand up in her “Valkyrie” combat uniform.

Mercy is an angelic Support character who offers powerful heals and buffs to her team. Her main weapon can be switched from a strong heal beam that constantly heals one target, to a damage buff increasing the damage that target does. Due to her great skills, Mercy is a great support to bring into combat, whether defensively or aggressively. The downside to Mercy is the rather limited range on her heal, meaning she is often put into danger herself. Mercy players will need to be creative in order to stay alive, and should constantly be moving around and hiding behind cover when possible.

Strength

Mercy is good against Symmetra, Mei and Lucio. Against Symmetra, tell your tank to go through the choke points filled with turrets while healing them until they clear out the turrets.

Mei is strong vs heroes in close range, you have a lot of mobility so just don’t stick close to her while healing targets that she tries to freeze and burst, if she ults, find an ally that’s outside and immediately fly to him.

Lucio sitting on your ass shouldn’t be a problem, fly to a target that will kill him if he keeps chasing. Not to mention you are good against his boops since you can always fly up when he boops you off the map.

 

Above all, if you are a fan of overwatch and exactly a coser, actually, mercy is a awesome object that you can cosplay.
