Pharah deals justice from above in this latest Overwatch gameplay video

2 min read


Alright Blizzard, you’re really getting out of hand now. You released a gameplay video for Reinhardt yesterday, and barely 24 hours later, you unveil new one for Pharah? You’re impossible… I can only spin so many Overwatch article introductions each week before the barrel runs dry, and now I’ve had to thumbsuck another!

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s take a look at Pharah. She’s a jetpack and rocket-launcher-wielding dealer of justice! Here’s an overview of who she is and what she’s capable of…


Real Name: Fareeha Amari
Age: 32
Occupation: Security Chief
Base of Operations: Giza, Egypt
Affiliation: Helix Security International

Fareeha Amari’s commitment to duty runs in her blood. She comes from a long line of highly decorated soldiers and burns with the desire to serve with honour.


Rocket Launcher

Pharah’s primary weapon launches rockets that deal significant damage in a wide blast radius.

Jump Jet

Propelled by her suit’s thrusters, Pharah soars high into the air.

Concussive Blast

Pharah looses a wrist rocket that knocks back any enemies it strikes and deals immense damage to shields and barriers.


Pharah directs a continuous salvo of mini-rockets to destroy groups of enemies.


Thanks to franchises like Unreal Tournament and Quake, I have a thing for rocket launchers. Let’s see how Pharah makes use of hers:

High-flying Pharah secures the skies in this complete, unedited match from an early version of Overwatch, captured in 60fps on PC. Here, Pharah is on the defense in Watchpoint: Gibraltar, a Payload map set in an abandoned Overwatch outpost perched above the Mediterranean Sea.

Well, she certainly knows how to use it. It’s not every day one witnesses a 37 kill streak!

Out of all the characters I’ve seen in action, Pharah is my favourite. I like how the gameplay video demonstrates her mobility in both offensive and defensive scenarios. That and rocket launcher… one cannot go wrong with a rocket launcher! She is definitely the character I want to try the most.

Honestly, this is the first Overwatch video I’ve seen that has me somewhat boarding the hype train. What about you? Are you sold and keen to play the game? Or does the game not interest you in the slightest?

      Was thinking the same. Rocket launcher that does splash damage while gliding through the air. Imagine light assault units could do that in PS2? Bye bye tanks

    Wow. They need a lot of balancing it would seem. That rocket launcher combined with a yet pack and the reload speed of a pee shooter is just waaaaay over powered!
