I was a little worried about designing their powers given that their Ultimates were supposed to be stronger than the usual powers. Thankfully the “Effective” Ability Perk covers that. Genji’s deflect is also a bit difficult to mimic and I ended up setting it up as a weird combo: a Trap attack that requires an action to set, and then triggers simultaneously with a Barrier to represent the absorption and reflection of the attack back to the shooter.

  1. ¿why Hanzo uses Gear and Genji uses Attack?

    • I don’t have a super accurate answer here, but I designed it since Hanzo can lose his bow, but Genji’s attacks are mostly stuck to him (Shuriken from inside his forearms) The sword should probably be gear though.
