Zarya, the Defender of Russia, is a ranged warrior hero from the Overwatch universe. [1] Aleksandra Zaryanova is one of the world's strongest women and was a promising athlete, but all that changed when the Siberian omnium reawakened. As a soldier in the Russian Defense Force, she now proudly uses her strength to protect the ones she loves.

Zarya is a mid range tank who uses shields to protect herself and her allies. The damage absorbed by her shields increases her own damage.

Background[edit | edit source]

Overwatch This section concerns content exclusive to the Overwatch universe.

Aleksandra Zaryanova is one of the world's strongest women, a celebrated athlete who sacrificed personal glory to protect her family, friends, and country in a time of war.

Aleksandra was born in a remote Siberian village that was on the front lines of the Omnic Crisis, which began some thirty years ago. Although Russian forces defeated the robots and shut down their omnium, the region was devastated by the conflict. Only a child at the time, Aleksandra was surrounded by the post-war destruction, and as she grew older, she swore that she would gain the strength to help her people recover.

Focusing on weightlifting and bodybuilding, Aleksandra was identified by the national athletics program as a potential star. She trained extensively, moving up the ranks while representing her country, and was expected to shatter longstanding records in the upcoming world championships.

But on the eve of the tournament, an attack came from the long-dormant Siberian omnium, and her village was thrust into war once again. Aleksandra immediately withdrew from the competition and rushed home to enlist in the local defense forces, sacrificing the life of fame and fortune she might have had. Now she serves—a symbol to some, a stalwart fellow soldier to others. But for Aleksandra, it is a chance to use her great strength to protect the ones she loves.[2]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Zarya is a ranged Bruiser who combines protective shields with strong damage capabilities. Zarya is capable of shielding herself and nearby allies. Upon taking damage, shielded targets (herself included) increase Zarya's Energy, which can greatly increase her damage potential. Her Basic Attack animation is unique, as it allows her to hit multiple enemy targets at the same time.

Strength[edit | edit source]

  • Offers great protection with her Shields against burst damage
  • Her Basic Attacks allows her to damage multiple enemies
  • Does not require Mana

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • No crowd control until Level 10
  • Extremely dependent on her Energy level
  • Requires the player to carefully analyse the battlefield and shield targets that are likely going to be attacked.
  • Very limited mobility
