Lúcio using Wall Ride alongside terrain

The Terrain is an unpathable part of the battleground. Trees, rocks or cliffs are examples of such terrains. Heroes can also not see over terrain. After the destruction of a Fort or Keep, they still leave a rubble of unpathable terrain. Some abitities however, do Heroes allow to jump, see or fly over terrain.

Terrain Outlines are displayed on terrain when playing Diablo, Hanzo, Junkrat or Lúcio. This allows those Heroes a more accurate view of what can be used for jumps, Frag Launcher bounces and Wall Rides.
