Phreak is a hero that was created for the pitch meeting for Prometheus, which became Overwatch. Her design is taken from unused Titan concept art.[1]

She had the following abilities:

  • Cannon
  • Stomp
  • Attract

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Her name derives from the word "phreak", which is a portmanteau of the words "phone" and "freak". Phreaking is a slang word that refers to the reverse-engineering and manipulation of the phone system, similar to hacking computer systems.
  • During the opening slideshow in the Cinematic Trailer, the figure on the far right of the Paris scene appears to have "Phreak" printed on the back of their leather jacket.
