“Justice ain’t gonna dispense itself.”
Armed with his Peacekeeper revolver, the outlaw Jesse McCree doles out justice on his own terms.
McCree had already made a name for himself as a member of the notorious Deadlock Gang, which trafficked in illicit weapons and military hardware throughout the American Southwest, when he and his associates were busted in an Overwatch sting operation. With his expert marksmanship and resourcefulness, he was given the choice between rotting in a maximum-security lockup and joining Blackwatch, Overwatch’s covert ops division. He chose the latter.
Although he was initially cynical, he came to believe that he could make amends for his past sins by righting the injustices of the world. McCree appreciated the flexibility afforded to the clandestine Blackwatch, unhindered by bureaucracy and red tape. But as Overwatch’s influence waned, rogue elements within Blackwatch sought to bring down the organization and turn it to their own ends. Wanting no part of the infighting, McCree set off alone and went underground.
McCree never goes anywhere without his trusty six-shooter. He is quickest draw anywhere. Whether it is one quick shot or a flurry of six shots you know that McCree isn’t going to miss.
The original tuck, duck, and reload. McCree has learned that a moving target is harder to kill. When your life is on the line who has time to stop and reload. With this efficient move McCree not only dodges but comes up ready to dish out some more pain.
Being a bounty hunter sadly requires you bring some bounties in alive. Albeit not his favorite way to deal with someone, McCree has a few tricks up his sleeve. With this light grenade McCree will blind and stun any nearby mark giving him time to secure his bounty.
McCree has made shooting his gun into an art. He long ago realized a few well aimed shots is worth a thousand missed ones. McCree has honed this skill. McCree will take a few seconds to map out the scene, aim, and release a flurry of well placed shots. You know if you see McCree stop moving and take a few breaths, that any desperado left in his sights will be boots up.
