Overwatch Sombra reveal has excited a lot of fans. When she was first displayed she was a real mystery. It’s interesting that Overwatch Sombra was revealed during BlizzCon 2016.

Sombra is a hacker who works together with her partner Reaper. As a primary weapon she uses a machine pistol. She can’t snipe though which is quite tiring when you’re far away from your enemy. The pistol itself is quite balanced and is good for weak enemies. It feels like Sombra it too powerful so it would be reasonable to provide her with less health.
Overwatch Sombra leak is fake. This is what many fans used to think when they first saw Sombra images. Things changed when fans could learn first news about this character from Overwatch Sombra leaked images. Even though there was no Overwatch Sombra leaked gameplay Blizzard revealed the first video without delays. Along with Overwatch leaked Sombra there was Athena system as well. It’s interesting that Athena gets hacked by Reaper who is the partner of leaked Sombra.
Before Sombra got revealed Internet sleuths were investigating the truth about her. The major clue was during Blizzard Entertainment’s ARG for Overwatch, which made it clear, Sombra was on the way. When Blizzard introduced sniper Ana fans started guessing about who was next. Developers gave a lot of hints an Eastern Eggs in promotional videos. A “skull code” gave the evidence about Sombra. There was so called compass which helped to decipher it.
Sombra uses the voice of Carolina Ravassa. She’s a Colombian dancer and actress.
Overwatch Sombra abilities are mainly passive. She can use Opportunist skill which helps to see severely injured players through walls. She’s great for stealth missions. If you use Hack ability you can prevent your enemies from using their skills. Her ultimate ability is EMP which creates an electromagnetic energy field. It destroys all the barriers around. Speculations and discussion on Overwatch Sombra hero possible abilities were far from reality. Many people predicted her to be a sniper which isn’t true. Overwatch Sombra update has shown that this character is much stronger owing to passive tactics.
