Roadhog (Imperialish: Grip N’ Sip, or Roadmun) is a playable hero in Overwatch. With a high health pool and devastating damage output, Grip N’ Sip fills the tank role for his team by forcing foes to prioritize him over his teammates.
Grip N’ Sip’s playstyle revolve around his two basic abilities:
- Grip: a powerful ability that attaches to and reels an enemy directly to Grip N’ Sip.
- Sip: Grip N’ Sip downs a sizzurp and recovers half of his health.
Both abilities have very short cooldowns, allowing Grip N’ Sip to grip and sip repeatedly throughout a team fight. Combined with a primary weapon that can one-shot most of the cast, a skilled Grip N’ Sip can very effectively control the pace of any match.
However, Grip N’ Sip is very difficult to play well and a poor Grip N’ Sip can be more detrimental to a team than most heroes. His large hitbox and health pool can give the enemy team guaranteed ultimate charge if caught out of position. His low ammo-count, slow reload, and movement-inhibiting abilities are punishing in an extended engagement. His ultimate is very situational, and disables Grip N’ Sip’s grip and sip for a few seconds. Finally, large doses of high strength cough syrup contains dangerous amounts of promethazine and codeine, a combination that can lead to death.
