For two seconds, Genji will automatically deflect incoming projectiles towards wherever his crosshair is pointed. The deflected projectiles will act as if they were shot from a friendly source, including deflected ultimates. This only applies to projectiles within his field of view. Doing this does not affect the properties of the projectile; they will retain their damage, knockback, and ability to headshot (or lack thereof). Note that for the damage falloff will be reset upon deflecting. Deflect can be cancelled at any time using Swift Strike or by casting Dragonblade.
