Overwatch 2 has been delivering exciting updates consistently, and the latest buzz is all about the new addition to its roster: Mauga. This towering and tumultuous new tank hero is set to dominate the battlefield with his incendiary and volatile chain cannons. Gear up as we delve into the mechanics and strategies of wielding Mauga in your next Overwatch 2 session, and seize the opportunity to test him out before he officially joins Season 8.
Mauga’s Explosive Arsenal: A Deep Dive
Mauga’s arsenal is tailored for frontline devastation and close-quarter combat elimination. He wields dual chain cannons, “Lleta” and “Metra,” which can be fired independently or simultaneously, scorching enemies with fiery barrages. The incendiary might of Lleta complements Metra’s volatile bursts, delivering critical hits that can seal the fate of his adversaries.
Berserker, Mauga’s passive ability, is a game-changer. It bestows temporary health when landing critical damage, transforming Mauga into a true behemoth amidst the chaos of battle.
Team Dynamics and Mauga’s Supportive Skills
Beyond his starring role in the fray, Mauga’s skill set also encompasses team support. His “Charge” ability is a mass-control-immune rush that culminates in a stomp capable of repelling foes. For dire moments, “Cardiac Overstimulation” kicks in, activating his twin hearts to generate a damage-reducing aura and enabling allies to heal through dealt damage.
Ultimate Showdown with “Cage Fight”
When it’s time to slow-dance with the enemy, Mauga unleashes his ultimate, “Cage Fight.” This ability entraps foes in a cylindrical ring, isolating them from external healing and damage, forcing a confrontation against Mauga’s relentless ammunition.
