Overwatch 2: Tips and Tricks for Playing Ramattra – Abilities Showcase

"This is not cruelty.. This is justice."

by Matt Vatankhah

Ramattra is the newest hero added to the Overwatch 2 roster, and serves as an intimidating tank who’s capable of poking enemies and shielding allies from afar, or pushing his opposition back with in-your-face domination. While he may lack in the mobility department, he makes up for it with armor, barriers, AoE damage, and raw strength. We’ll go over all of Ramattra’s abilities and how you can use them to lead your team to victory. Here are our tips and tricks for playing Ramattra in Overwatch 2.

Ramattra uses his Void Accelerator staff for his normal attacks, which fires a steady stream of projectiles towards his target. The Void Accelerator holds 100 ammo and, while it fires at a quick 25 projectiles per second, it is not a hitscan weapon, meaning you’ll have to “lead” your shots to land successful hits from anything past mid-range. Headshot multipliers do come into effect, so locking on to your opponent’s noggins can quickly burn them down.

Using the Void Accelerator’s alternate fire creates a barrier at the targeted location, and while it only lasts around four seconds after deployed, it has 1000 hit points worth of blocking potential. That makes it sturdier than Sigma’s shield, and slightly weaker than Reinhardt’s, though its short duration means it’s best used situationally.

Ramattra has two abilities: one for AoE damage and slowing, and another to switch forms and alter his moves even further.

Ravenous Vortex

Ramattra fires a nano ball that explodes on ground contact and continuously damages and slows enemies caught within it. Perfect for area denial, but even better for dragging flying heroes like Pharah and Echo straight to the ground.

Nemesis Form

Nemesis Form transforms Ramattra into a tanky, hulking machine of rage with an additional 150 armor, and alters his normal and alternate fire attacks as well. By using his normal fire, Pummel, Ramattra sends waves of energy projectiles that pierce through opponents and enemy shields. These projectiles even ignore D.Va’s Defense Matrix.

Using his alternate fire in Nemesis Form, Ramattra holds his arms in front of him, reducing incoming damage by around 75% while also reducing his movement speed by about 50%. This damage reduction even applies to enemy AoE ultimates, like Pharah’s Barrage and Hanzo’s Dragonstrike.

Nemesis Form is perfect when your team is ready to push the enemy line, providing cover for your allies while delivering pain to anything in front of him.

Annihilation – Ultimate Ability

If Ramattra’s normal pushing power wasn’t enough, his Annihilation ultimate will make sure the enemy team flees for their lives. Activating Annihilation causes Ramattra to enter Nemesis Form, gaining his usual 150 extra armor, while also creating a large energy swarm around him that constantly deals damage to all enemies caught within. While the duration only lasts for three seconds, doing damage actually pauses the countdown, meaning Annihilation will persist until everything around him either runs or dies.
