Background[edit | edit source]

Overwatch This section concerns content exclusive to the Overwatch universe.

The former Overwatch agent known as Tracer is a time-jumping adventurer and an irrepressible force for good.

Lena Oxton (call sign: "Tracer") was the youngest person ever inducted into Overwatch's experimental flight program. Known for her fearless piloting skills, she was handpicked to test the prototype of a teleporting fighter, the Slipstream. But during its first flight, the aircraft's teleportation matrix malfunctioned, and it disappeared. Lena was presumed dead.

She reappeared months later, but her ordeal had greatly changed her: her molecules had been desynchronized from the flow of time. Suffering from "chronal disassociation," she was a living ghost, disappearing for hours and days at a time. Even for the brief moments she was present, she was unable to maintain physical form.

Overwatch's doctors and scientists were stumped, and Tracer's case seemed hopeless until a scientist named Winston designed the chronal accelerator, a device capable of keeping Tracer anchored in the present. In addition, it gave Tracer the ability to control her own time, allowing her to speed it up and slow it down at will. With her newfound skills, she became one of Overwatch's most effective agents.

Since Overwatch's dissolution, Tracer has continued to right wrongs and fight the good fight wherever the opportunity presents itself.[2]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Tracer is an extremely mobile Ranged Assassin who picks off straggling enemies, finishing them off. Due to her fragility, she relies on her Abilities to constantly reposition and outmaneuver enemy forces. With her high burst damage and many escapes, she can be a nuisance to the enemy backline.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Tracer was the first hero from the Overwatch franchise to enter the Nexus, and she appeared in Heroes of the Storm a month before Overwatch was released.
  • Tracer is voiced by British drama actress Cara Theobold.
  • It was revealed that Tracer would be added to Heroes of the Storm at BlizzCon 2015.[3]
  • Those who prepurchased a digital copy of Overwatch: Origins Edition gained access to Tracer on April 19, 2016. She became available for sale to everyone as of April 26, 2016.[1]
  • Tracer is the first Overwatch hero in the game.
  • The One-Two Punch talent is named after a fundamental boxing technique commonly first taught to boxers - a jab with the left hand immediately followed by a cross with the right hand after hitting with the jab.
  • The Telefrag talent's function and name refers to a phenomenon in early first-person shooters wherein if a player was to teleport or respawn at a location where another player was already standing, the original player there would be killed to make space for the new player.
  • Composition B's talent name comes from an actual explosive mixture of RDX and TNT. Ironically, an indication of Tracer using it is rather at odds with how the Overwatch universe takes place in a futuristic setting while Composition B has been progressively phased out of militaries since the 1950s with other combinations that are less sensitive and thus safer for their users (especially considering Tracer handles her Pulse Bombs by hand).
