“We’re all soldiers now.”

Currently the target of an international manhunt, the vigilante known as Soldier: 76 wages a personal war to expose the truth behind Overwatch’s collapse.

Soldier: 76 revealed himself in a string of attacks that crisscrossed the globe, targeting financial institutions, shadowy corporations, and secure Overwatch facilities. Though to the outside world his motives are inscrutable, there are those who claim that he is a former Overwatch agent, determined to shed light on the conspiracy that brought down the organization.

While his true identity remains a mystery, he is believed to have been trained as a member of the American “soldier enhancement program.” He possesses physical capabilities exceeding those of a conventional soldier’s, as well as other augmentations that make him a peerless combatant. In addition, he utilizes a cutting-edge arsenal, much of it stolen in raids on Overwatch installations.

Unrelenting in his search to find those responsible for Overwatch’s fall, Soldier: 76 will stop at nothing to bring them to justice.

Heavy Pulse Rifle:

Precision is the call sign of Soldier: 76. This shows in his specialized pulse rifle. It has the capability to maintain stability even while in full auto mode. If Soldier: 76 was a painter, the heavy pulse rifle would be his brush, a smooth deadly brush. Ask his last canvas.

Helix Rockets:

When you are raiding an enemy facility for supplies you have to be careful. Soldier: 76 uses helix rockets to target only those who stand in his way. These beauties fly in a tight spiral all hitting within inches of each other. This delivers maximum punishment to the target, and little to no collateral damage.

Sprint:

Soldier: 76 has discovered that not all “Abandoned” sites are empty. Sometimes you open the door hoping for a quick score, only to find a score of armed soldiers staring down the barrels of their guns at you. It is times like this Soldier: 76 embraces the old adage “run away to fight another day.”

Biotic Field:

Even the best laid plans come with risks. You can’t expect to charge into a heavily defended outpost and not have some scratches. Soldier: 76 always carries with him a few Biotic field generators. Once inside the field all but the most lethal injuries will quickly knit back together. This keeps his team ready for anything they may run into.

Tactical Visor:

Soldier: 76 can’t help but sometimes getting in over his head. Sometimes you just don’t have time to aim, you need to take out the enemies now. This experimental device will quickly lock on to whatever enemy is closest. It quickly switches to new targets as soon as a threat is nullified. Making for a rapid succession of enemy targets being dispatched.
