Under his abilities, it might be worth mentioning, for those that are unaware, that his Barrier Field does NOT prevent enemies from walking straight through it, which means he's definitely going to want to keep his wits about him. 71.113.188.37 07:04, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Add something like this to Trivia: In a shared dialogue between Reinhardt and Lucio, Reinhardt mentions 'the classics: like Hasslehoff'. This references the German stereotype as people who enjoy David Hasslehoff. - Anon. July 1st.

Charge versus B.O.B.[edit source]

Reinhardt's charge will pin Ashe's BOB like all other heroes. That ultimate is unique in that B.O.B. functions in every way like a normal hero, with the exception of being revivable. However, someone included BOB in the list under Charge "interactions", erroneously stating that charging a BOB will make both BOB and Reinhardt fall down. Does not work that way, I have personally charged a BOB in a match just yesterday (1/3/2019) and it will work as you would expect on other heroes. Part of the point of Blizzard updating interactions between opposing forces like Doomfist's punch and Reinhardt's charge was to unify the effects so they are all the same, making it more predictable; B.O.B. does not fit in that category. --Anonymous

Did you charge a charging B.O.B.? (i.e. while he's running after being summoned.) If you charge a stationary B.O.B., of course he'll get pinned. Lightning laxus (talk) 18:34, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, a while after I wrote this, I realized whoever wrote the part about B.O.B. on the page must have meant the interaction with B.O.B. charge when he's summoned. But the language on the page only states "Ashe's B.O.B" and not a "charging B.O.B.". That should really be updated on the page to clarify that the interaction ONLY happens to the brief moment when he's charging immediately after summoned. --Anonymous

Birthday[edit source]

Saw Hasen1's edit removed. However, I do not understand how Zarya's line being a "convo" makes the edit invalid. Would his birthday not be Jan 14? Or does she say that on other days as well? --Gills97 (talk) 00:01, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

The conversation starts with Reinhardt saying how he beat Zarya at arm wrestling. Zarya responds with the line in question, basically admitting to going easy on him on that day because she heard it was his birthday. The forum post I linked to in the summary explains this, and also proves that the line has been heard before January 14. It doesn't indicate any birth date for Reinhardt. - TheModster (talk) 00:09, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
So the line was in past-tense? If so, then that makes way more sense why it doesn't confirm a birthdate. --Gills97 (talk) 04:58, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
