So a new lore dump just dropped for Baptiste, and quickly turned him into one of my favorite heroes in the game, but aside from that, there’s no denying that this story told us a lot about a new character who just may be the next hero.
There’s no telling for certain until we see it, but Mauga was described pretty heavily in this story, leading me to believe he might be the next hero in the game.
Of course, as the story ended (AGAIN, SPOILER WARNING, GO READ IT IF YOU HAVEN’T)
Baptiste totally blasted Mauga into oblivion, meaning he could possibly be dead? But when has death ever prevented an Overwatch character from being relevant in the present am I right? lol
So. Going into detail, Mauga seems to be about the same body shape and size as Reinhardt. He wears a black, white, and red (typical talon) suit of armor with a machine gun equipped on his back (uses belts for ammo). He can apparently deploy a “Massive shield”, and if I understood the Sainclair interrogation scene correctly, he can move this shield without moving himself(?).
(it mentions that Nguyen "crept towards sainclair’ and Mauga’s shield followed him, but it never states Mauga himself followed)
This definitely sounds like a Tank hero, does it not?
What does everyone else think?
