Mei deploys a weather-modification drone that emits gusts of wind and snow in a wide area. Enemies caught in the blizzard are slowed and take damage; those who linger too long are frozen solid.

Default Key: (PC Q, PS Tri, XB Y)

Details Edit

Mei throws the small drone she carries in her back. The drone can be thrown past barriers, but can shoot down the drone before it hits the ground if it collides with her Defense Matrix. After it lands on the ground, it will rise up and slowly freeze enemies within a 10-meter radius for a length of 5 seconds. It deals 20 damage per second. Enemies within its radius will freeze after 3 seconds and be frozen for 4 seconds.

A Mei on the enemy team or player-controlled Mei will shout "冻住,不许走!", while an allied Mei says "Freeze! Don't move!"

Trivia Edit

  • The Weather-Modification Drone can create a system of rapid endothermic exchange, spawning a blizzard even in warm, humid environments.[1]
