Passive ability

From Overwatch Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Passive abilities are abilities that either activate without the player's interaction; or do not directly affect the game world, but only the movement or state of the hero or their abilities. When passive abilities are controlled, they are usually activated using the Space bar. Passive abilities that require a button to press are negated by Hack.

Not all heroes have passive abilities. Where present, passive abilities are often core to the play style or capabilities of the hero.
