Baptiste, better known as Jean-Baptiste Augustin, made his official overwatch debut on March 19th 2019 as a support combat medic. I already love him, and not just because he has the same name as my last name. Note: I am not a Haitian decent like Baptiste, I am actually half jamaican and half bajan (Barbados).
Baptiste’s support abilities are stellar; he keeps his teammates alive, while participating in the fight against enemies as the ultimate support. While his abilities are similar to Ana and Mercy, he is definitely one of the strongest support fighters I have ever played so far. Baptiste is part of my top main team, along with D.VA, Mercy, Sombra, Ashe, Hanzo, and Orisa.
I do feel like Baptiste is similar to Mercy. Here me out: Baptiste and Mercy are both strong support fighters, both of them have the abilities to join the missions as fighters and healers, and they both have immortality abilities to keep fighters alive. So, if you are ever in a situation where you are unable to choose Baptiste as a fighter, just go with Mercy. It’s the same thing. Trust me.
Overall, I am very happy and impressed with Baptiste; he makes a great addition to the Overwatch family. He also makes a great addition to my top main team.
