When Is Mauga Coming To Overwatch 2

Ever since the launch of Overwatch 2, we have had a constant flow of new heroes and new maps for everyone to enjoy. After Season 1 of the game, Season 2 introduced another new hero, Ramattra. In Season 3, there was a new map. In Season 4, Lifeweaver joined the roster. We think you know where we're heading with this, but essentially Blizzard adds a new hero with every even-numbered season. With Illari launching in Season 6, Mauga is set to launch in Season 8. But when exactly will the new tank hero come to Overwatch 2?

We have full confirmation that Overwatch Season 8 will start on December 5th. That means we are not too far away from Mauga launching in the game. It has been a long time coming, but Mauga will finally make his way to the Overwatch roster. And it looks like it was worth the wait.

What Abilities Will Mauga Have In Overwatch 2?

Mauga is going to be a very offensive tank that is similar to Roadhog. He will have two automatic Chaingun weapons which will do machine gun-style damage and critical damage as well. That helps him quite a bit because his passive will give Mauga temporary health after dealing critical damage.

His ability, Overrun, will allow Mauga to charge forward to push back enemies and launch them with a final stomp. This charge is unstoppable. The next ability is Cardiac Overdrive which will affect Mauga and nearby teammates. The team will get reduced damage and heal by dealing even more damage.

The final ability that Mauga will have is his Ultimate and it is called Cage Fight. Mauga will deploy a barrier that traps himself and any enemies inside. The enemies will be chained and cannot leave. Mauga will gain unlimited ammo so it is perfect for taking down enemies that are about to go down.
