Kiriko Is Overwatch 2’s New Kunai-Wielding Support Character


Kiriko is the latest supporting character to arrive with the launch of Overwatch 2 PvP on October 4. She wields kunai, teleports through walls to allies, heals teammates with talismans, and can make nearby allies invulnerable for short periods of time with her Protection Suzu move. Oh, and her ultimate summons summons a fox spirit that rushes ahead, chasing friendly relationships that follow.

Kiriko is free for all Overwatch 1 players, or you can earn her by reaching Tier 55 on the Battle Pass free track. Of course, you immediately unlock the character along with newcomers Sojourn and Junker Queen by purchasing the premium battle pass. Not only is Kiriko the first supporter to keep up with fast-paced characters like Tracer and Genji, but the development team has informed us that her healing ability should be comparable to Moira and Mercy.
