Background[ | ]


Paris during the Omnic Crisis

Paris is the capital city of France. It was a site of civil unrest during the Omnic Crisis.[1] At some point in the decades that followed, Paris was identified as a hotspot by Overwatch.[2]

Paris was one of the locations Junkrat and Roadhog raided during their heist.[3]

In the present, Paris is one of the most important art cities in the world, shown through its rebuilt architecture, galleries, and street art. It is a hot tourist destination with many restaurants and clubs to bring people in.[4]

Null Sector Invasion[ | ]

Attention. This is your captain speaking. We're on final approach to Paris. You may now power on your electronic devices. Weather is mostly cloudy, with a hundred percent chance of Null Sector invasion.

Null Sector attacks Paris

Years after launching a similar attack on London, Null Sector attacked Paris.[5] Casualties were heavy, ranging from the hundreds to thousands, with thousands more displaced and injured.[6] Its police force did what it could, but was fighting a losing battle as Null Sector continued to advance. An Overwatch team deployed into the city and joined the fight, but were heavily outnumbered by Null Sector's Nullifiers, and via the omnics' Titan, heavily outgunned as well. However, more Overwatch agents joined the fight and were able to destroy the Titan, thwarting Null Sector's attack.[5]


The Atlas News report on Paris

The attack on Paris generated global shock, and left people asking whether it was an isolated incident, or the start of a new war.[7] It was quickly revealed to be the latter, as the attack on Paris was followed by similar attacks on targets across the planet.[8]
