Pulse Pistols

HOTKEY: LEFT CLICK    or    Xbox Right Trigger

Damage: 3.6 – 12
Ammo: 40
Falloff: 10 – 20 meters
Fire Rate: 20 shots per second
Reload Time: 1.15 seconds
Headshot? Can headshot

Tracer rapid-fires both of her pistols.

Blink

HOTKEY: LEFT SHIFT    or    Xbox Left Bumper

Charges: 3
Range: 7.5 meters
Cooldown: 3 seconds per charge

Tips

  • Its suggested to rebind blink to right mouse so that it’s easier to blink left(A), right(D), up(W), or backwards(S)
  • Practice Melee-Blink combos (See combos section)
  • Tracer is not invulnerable mid-blink! You can die to AoE
  • Blink through a target to dodge abilities like Reinhardt charge, McCree’s flashbang, doomfist q, and Brigitte’s shield bash
  • In a 1-1 situation, try to blink while reloading to maximize DPS

Tracer zips horizontally through space in the direction she’s moving, and reappears several yards away. She stores up to three charges of the blink ability and generates more every few seconds.

Recall

HOTKEY: E    or    Xbox Right Bumper

Health Buff: Returns health to highest over last 3 seconds
Ability: Returns Tracer to her position from 3 seconds ago
Duration: 1.25 seconds rewinding stasis
Cooldown: 12 seconds

Tips

  • When Tracer is low hp, listen for her distinctive gasp as a queue to rewind
  • If on a moving platform 3 seconds ago, Tracer recalls onto the platform

Tracer bounds backward in time, returning her health, ammo and position on the map to precisely where they were a few seconds before.

Pulse Bomb (Ultimate)

HOTKEY: Q    or    Xbox Y

Damage: 300 AoE, 5 on stick
Radius: 3 meters
Duration: 1 second

Self damage
Genji deflectable
D.Va matrixable

Tips

  • Pulse bomb does larger AoE damage if thrown on a wall/floor (instead of sticking)
    • Throw a pulse bomb below a friendly graviton instead of sticking someone
  • A Zarya bubble is a free kill if you wait 1 second then throw your pulse bomb on the shield
  • Tracer can kill <= 300hp characters through transcendence

Tracer lobs a large bomb that adheres to any surface or unfortunate opponent it lands on. After a brief delay, the bomb explodes, dealing high damage to all enemies within its blast radius.
