The same as the other overwatch heroes, Sigma also has a special power which will give a great help with his team. Sigma is also a tank character, which is the same with Reinhardt, Orisa, and Winston. However, he differs from the others for being a tank because he is a barrier tank.
It is a primary and experimental barrier tank which he can deploy it in any location and angles he wants to help his team in any situations. He also has weapons and ability, such as:
• Hyper Spheres – it is his primary weapon in attacking his enemy. It has two round-burst with a very short distance projectile. It can bounce off in the surface at least in one time. It can create a proximity damage and around the radius when they are in a location. It also has a slight gravitational force which it can pull them.
• Kinetic Grasp – is Sigma’s primary ability. A defense ability, which he can put afield in front of him. When he put his palm out, he can catch all the incoming damage that will come to his way. He can transform it into a protective shield for himself, and he can do it up to 400 shields.
• Accretion – it is the ability to form a rock which from out of nothing to a mass of earth, where he can thrust it to his enemy. It can create a tremendous damage, but it will surely knock the enemy down.
• Gravitic Flux – the same as Doomfist, you can have a big targeted area on the ground which you can capture as many enemies within the radius. When you capture them, they will be propelled into the air which there will be a short of free gravity for some time and suspend it in mid-air. The enemy will be unable to move, and they will be crashing to the ground violently and causes a lot of damage. Which when you hit the ground it will be half of your max health.
