The King's Row Times reports on Null Sector's activities

Null Sector was formed as a consequence of the United Kingdom's harsh treatment toward its omnic population. Much of modern Britain was built on the backs of omnic laborers, who did dangerous and menial work, but were denied basic rights and citizenship. Omnics were forced to undergo mandatory registration, and were treated as if under military occupation; marched throughout the streets by armed soldiers, and forced to be scanned at omnic transit checkpoints. As a result, Null Sector enjoyed some support among Britain's omnic population.

Null Sector fought from the underground, and was willing to do "whatever it took" to achieve omnic equality. Null Sector gradually took over more control of London. Some accused them of being a terrorist organization.

Null Sector launches its attack

Seven years before the present day,[1] after stirring unrest in London,[3] Null Sector launched the King's Row Uprising. The uprising saw London in flames. On the 27th day of the Uprising, the prime minister of the UK expressively forbade Overwatch from interfering. By this point, Null Sector had taken Mayor Nandah, Mondatta, and a hundred other prisoners captive in a guarded power plant. Thousands in King's Row needed medical aid. Blackwatch agent McCree reported the hostage situation to Strike Commander Jack Morrison. After much deliberation, Morrison authorized an illegal Overwatch mission to end the crisis.[1]

By the 28th day of the Uprising, Null Sector's actions had taken hundreds of lives, led to thousands of injuries, and had, in the mind of Morrison, taken the UK, if not the world, to the brink of open war. Four Overwatch agents—Tracer, Reinhardt, Mercy, and Torbjörn—touched down in King's Row, and fought their way through the hordes of Null Sector omnics that came at them.[2]

Types[edit | edit source]

Null Sector employed a variety of different kinds of omnics in their assault on King's Row. Among those seen were:
