A popular tank character in Overwatch 1, now Roadhog is also an Overwatch 2 character. The deranged criminal that is somehow much more lovable than most would think has been confirmed to be playable in Overwatch 2. Here’s everything you need to know about Overwatch 2’s Roadhog summarized.
Overwatch 2 hero Roadhog is getting lots of changes to him, at least when it comes to hero missions. Unfortunately, there’s not much to discuss about these changes or Roadhog’s new Overwatch 2 abilities. This is because specifics haven’t been confirmed so far about either of them. Roadhog in Overwatch 2 will definitely have changes to his gameplay in story and hero missions in the form of Talents, but we’re going to have to wait for the game to drop to see exactly what these changes and new abilities of Roadhog in Overwatch 2 are. It is very likely that Overwatch 2 character Roadhog is also going to get a changed design as well, just like all the characters we’ve seen in trailers so far.
What is Roadhog’s Role in the Story?
Ever since it has been confirmed that every single character will have presence in the Overwatch 2 story, lots of players have been speculating what Overwatch 2 hero Roadhog’s role will be. He is not a part of Talon, and he is definitely not a part of Overwatch either. Roadhog is only the partner in crime of Junkrat, and both of them are deranged villains that only fight for themselves and don’t choose sides.
Because of this, it’s interesting to see how he’ll have any major impact on the Overwatch 2 story. It could be that his hero/story missions are completely unrelated to the main story and just focus on his crimes and past, or maybe Blizzard has a surprise regarding Roadhog in store for players.
