Default Key: (PC RMB)


For the information about attacks which is able to pierce through Brigitte's barrier, see Barrier.

Brigitte projects a small rectangular barrier in front of her. The barrier has 600 health, and when not in use will regain approximately 100 health per second after 2 seconds of disuse. Brigitte will have reduced movement speed and enter third person mode while this is active. Brigitte can aim and move the barrier by looking to another direction.

The barrier will show cracks when it takes damage; more cracks will appear if its health gets severly critical. Brigitte will warn her teammates with a voice line when the barrier's health is lower than 150.

If the barrier is destroyed, there is a 3-second cooldown before it can be used again. The Barrier Shield's health is displayed next to Brigitte's health, and also above the crosshair while active.

In the Game Options, Brigitte has an option that affects her Barrier Field:

  • Toggle Barrier: When enabled, pressing the appropriate button will toggle the Barrier Field on and off. Otherwise, the button must be held.
