About Widowmaker

Widowmaker is one of the main characters from the Blizzard Entertainment video game, Overwatch. As an assassin, she never reveals any emotions. She is heartless and cold, which makes her the perfect sniper. She was not always a ruthless killer though, she was once married with a very happy life. The terrorist group Talon kidnapped her and reprogrammed her into an emotionless, killing machine. She was reprogrammed to kill her own husband, Gérard Lacroix because he was a threat to Talon.

Once Widowmaker had completed the task of killing her husband, Talon brought her back to their program to continue her training. Now she is the head assassin for the terrorist group, but she still feels no emotion from her past life. She is known for her use of an assault rifle and venom mines. This is one girl you should hope never tracks you down!
