Torbjörn (Imperialish: Stealth Dwarf) is a playable hero in Overwatch. One of the world’s leading engineers, Stealth Dwarf’s abilities include constructing sentry guns, creating armor packs for his teammates, and fitting into small alcoves and crevices one wouldn’t expect a combatant to attack from.
Though the game will try to tell you that the sentry gun is his biggest asset, experienced players know that Stealth Dwarf’s true strength is his ability to ambush enemies unseen from behind small objects and waist-high walls. This is partly due to the fact that his primary weapon, the rivet gun, is horrifyingly powerful. The standard firing mode shoots small, arcing projectiles that do 70 points of damage to the body and 140 (!) damage to the head at any range. In addition, the secondary firing mode is a devastating shotgun blast that can do up to 150 damage per meatshot.
The most effective way to play the Stealth Dwarf is to set up ambushes with your upgraded sentry gun. While enemies are distracted by your auto-targeting turret, Stealth Dwarf can get the drop on enemies, dishing out ludicrous amounts of damage and overwhelm the enemy. After dispatching the enemy, Stealth Dwarf compacts their flesh into scrap that he can use to outfit his teammates with damage-resistant armor.
As if this wasn’t enough, Stealth Dwarf’s final form, the Molten Core, allows the height-challenged imp to temporarily channel Odin through his body for twelve seconds. While awakened, Molten Dwarf gains a ridiculous amount of armor, shoots his rivet gun much faster, and transforms his flimsy sentry gun into a hellish death machine. As an added bonus, Stealth Dwarf’s small forge hammer becomes Mjönlir, dealing 75 damage per hit at a deceptively fast swing rate.
A crucial aspect of playing Stealth Dwarf properly is employing the Scandinavian Battle Cry hidden abilitiy. Based on emperical studies, Imperial researchers have discovered that Stealth Dwarf players are roughly 20% more effective when constantly screaming “IIIII’M GIVIN’ IT ALL I’VE GOT!” by mashing the voice line button, terrifying enemies into submission and boosting the morale of teammates.
