Melee the Assassin
Overwatch Retribution 2018: Tips and Tricks for the Blackwatch Arcade Mode
One of the new enemies in the Overwatch Retribution mode is the formidable Assassin. As her name implies, she’s a speedy warrior who befuddles your team by leaping around rooms before zooming in and lacerating an ally. Like the Witch from the Left 4 Dead games, an Assassin can easily kill an ally if she isn’t dealt with – especially on higher difficulties. As a healer, you’ll want to be sustaining an ally she pounces on, but there’s actually an easier way to stop her assault.
When she’s busy slicing up one of your teammates, simply walk up to her and use your melee attack. Not only will she back off, but the melee attack will leave her wide open for a short second. You can score a few free hits before she starts bouncing around the walls again.
