Players who purchase the digital copy of Origins Edition orCollector's Edition of Overwatch for PC will gain free access to her starting April 19. Starting on April 26, she'll become available for sale to all players.
Lena Oxton (call sign: Tracer) is an adventurer and an irrepressible force for good. With the ability to alter her own time at will, she fights the good fight wherever she goes – even the Nexus. Bending space and time, Tracer is an extremely mobile and deadly teammate. Don’t worry, loves. The cavalry’s here.
Fire a short range bomb that attaches to enemy units if you hit them. The bomb explodes after 1.50 seconds dealing 443.10 (+5.5% per level) damage to them and 221.55 (+5.5% per level) damage to other nearby enemies.
This Ability is slowly charged over time by dealing damage to enemies with Basic Attacks and Melee.
One of the hardest matchups for Auriel, Tracer is sticky and can easily focus on Auriel, capitalizing on her poor movement speed with basic attacks, as well by using Melee and Pulse Bomb. Her fast movement with Blink also makes hard for Auriel to properly hit with her offensive abilities.
Tracer’s high mobility and bursty single target damage can be problematic due to Chromie’s low health pool, lack of escapes, and reliance on skillshots.
Kel'Thuzad struggles against high-mobility, diving heroes who can easily dodge his skill shots. Landing a Chain is hard enough on its own against someone like Tracer, and even when one Chain lands, it’s that much harder to land the second one with her zipping around.
Tracer's slippery nature makes hard for Malfurion to land Entangling Roots reliably, as even if caught, she can simply use Recall. She is also sticky and can easily focus on Malfurion, capitalizing on his poor movement options.
Ranged auto-attackers can deal consistent damage to Malthael while staying far enough away to avoid Reaper's Mark. As such, Tracer is exceptionally difficult to pin down, making it tough for Malthael to have much effect against her.
Tracer is one of Stukov's worst nightmares, boasting from range and mobility that combines what Illidan and Zeratul have; she can stick on Stukov from a safe distance while blinking to prevent any retaliation from Stukov.
Polymorph is considered a strong counter against Tracer, who is highly reliant on her mobility for survivability and engagement. Due to having it as a point and click for Brightwing means that Tracer is going to have an extremely hard time trying to engage and escape Brightwing and her opponoments from bursting her down when Tracer cannot even use her Blink or Recall. Her Soothing Mist and Blink Heal can easily mitigate alot of Tracer's harassment as well.
Tracer's teleporting fighter, the Slipstream, disappeared during its initial test flight. The unexpected discovery of its engine within the Nexus has allowed her to significantly bolster her weapontry.

Most who undergo training at the Ghost Academy come out of it with a grim outlook on life. The fact that Tracer didn't is a testament to her mental and emotional fortitude.
While terrazine exposure greatly enhances psionic powers, Tracer's ability to manipulate her own space-time is considered a unique gift even among her fellow Spectres.
