Bastion restores its health; it cannot fire weapons while the repair process is in effect.
Default Key: (PC RMB, PS L2, XB LT)


Bastion heals itself for as long as the button is held. It may be used in either configuration; however, using this ability will prevent Bastion from using his primary fire. Bastion can use this ability while moving and it will keep healing Bastion even when it is taking damage.

Self-Repair is on a resource meter. A full resource meter can heal 300 HP, and it heals Bastion at the rate of 70 HP per second; that means it will take 4.3 seconds to fully drain the meter. Clicking the button once will heal Bastion for at least 38 HP. Bastion cannot use this ability when the meter is lower than 1/5 of its capacity. After Bastion stops using Self-Repair for 1 second, the resource meter will refill, and it will take 7 seconds to refill a depleted meter.


  • Although the Self-Repair no longer stops Bastion's movement, the description on the official website still includes it in the ability's description.
