In addition to the hand cannon, he also possesses a secondary attack called Rocket Punch, which can knock enemies into the air or slam into the ground.

Doomfist is widely expected to be the next playable character in hugely popular PS4, Xbox One and PC shooter Overwatch.

The other takeaway from the video is that Doomfist is not voiced by Overwatch enthusiast and Doomfist's biggest promoter, Terry Crews.

Ever since Overwatch's launch previous year, there have been murmurs that Blizzard would add a new character called Doomfist to its roster of playable heroes. Alas, Doomfist's actual voice has much more of a West African lilt as per the character's background, which Jeff Kaplan explains in a developer update about the hero.

Doomfist is an Offense hero and is a highly mobile, powerful frontline fighter.

It is an interesting theory for sure and one that many players will likely keep in mind as they eagerly await more Doomfist details.

Overwatch fans rejoice! Doomfist is finally here and is, in fact, on the PTR as we speak.

Now that the character has actually been announced, Blizzard has also released a short animation clip that shows Doomfist fighting Tracer, Genji, and Winston all at once, which you can find here. When things get hairy, his ultimate, Meteor Strike, launches him into the air to crash back down and deal a ton of damage.

Hand Cannon: Doomfist fires a short-range burst from the knuckles of his fist.

Doomfist comes with a very unique set of moves that should shake things up in the current, Dive-heavy meta. Leaping forward and smashing his fist into the ground, he knocks nearby enemies towards him and in the range of his fists. Last but not least is his "Best Defense" ability which is similar to Reaper's new ability from the last update in which he generates a temporary shield whenever his other abilities damage the opposing team.
