The description in the images states that the prototype rifle is created by Torbjorn and belongs to a support hero, a healer to be precise. The weapon has no offensive capabilities and is solely used to heal allies. However, with the description Mercy provided in the image, there is a chance of the weapon having offensive capabilities once it is released.

Earlier this month, Blizzard added a new Competitive mode to Overwatch for the PS4. In Competitive mode, players are matched up against other players of their skill level or rank. This game mode made Overwatch a lot more fun with intense, action-packed matches. You can check out all the information related to the update here.
