Blizzard uses the term “Tempo Tank” to describe Ramattra because he has two forms that players can switch to at any given time, making him a pretty versatile hero in Overwatch 2.

The first is called the Omnic Form. Using this gives Ramattra the ability to create a barrier at a targeted location with his Void Accelerator’s secondary fire. This is a perfect tool whenever his teammates need protection.

His second form is called Nemesis Form and activating this ups Ramattra’s offensive capabilities. Instead of using a ranged weapon, he now engages enemies in melee combat with Pummel. Pummel’s secondary is worth mentioning because Ramattra gets significantly less damage from the front at a cost of reduced movement speed.

Players can unlock Ramattra for free at Level 45 of the Season 2 Battle Pass. Those who want to get their hands on the game’s newest tank without the arduous grind can purchase the Premium Battle Pass for 1,000 Overwatch Coins or $10.
