Blizzard has been teasing a new support hero for quite some time, though details surrounding this new hero has been scant. Until today. As of April 3, 2023, Lifeweaver was leaked, forcing Blizzard to announce the new hero early. But Overwatch 2 fans have taken the reveal well.
Overwatch 2 Fans Are Going Absolutely Feral for New Hero Lifeweaver
And by “well,” I mean they’ve taken to Twitter in rabid hoards declaring their undying love for him. Who can blame them? Lifeweaver seems distinctly more God-like than mortal. With a gorgeous mane of hair, a chiseled jaw that would make any alpha male weep, and a cherry blossom motif, Lifeweaver seems destined to become a fan favorite.
He also towers over Symmetra, one of his past classmates, implying that he might be 6’7”. A height that makes him close to the same size as most tanks. On top of all that, he’s canonically pansexual, with many of his lines reputedly being flirtatious.
Twitter immediately began to flood with memes and posts of appreciation.
“LIFEWEAVER MY BELOVED 🥺🧡”
“LIFEWEAVER CAN RUIN MY LIFE”
“if LIFEWEAVER💮and my girl👧😍 both drowning 😱 👋 and I can only save one😤😬Catch me at the enemy spawn door🚪🔴 with the flower man 🌸”

“lifeweaver ifudnsbsns s wbaaaaaaaaaoiuoooooooouuuuuugugghhhhhh”
Unfortunately, I can’t share many of the best memes in this article because they’re very inappropriate. But it’s likely you can imagine the ecstatic, feral screams of people who are intensely happy to have both representation and a new handsome male support hero in Overwatch 2.
Will Lifeweaver change the meta? Will he finally make support mains feel like the game is fun? Questions that probably don’t matter, because look how pretty he is.
