When playing Reinhardt, sometimes I miss hitting someone with my charge ability and I'm stuck running headlong into something. Is there a way that I can stop my charge after pushing shift besides running into something or dying?


You cannot cancel Reinhardt's Charge. Short of running into a nearby obstacle to stop it (and that turn radius is extremely small), you either wait until you hit a wall or until your charge runs out.

  • In my experience, you have to hit something, I have not found there to be a range limit at which the charge "runs out". – JamesCW May 6 '16 at 14:34

    @JamesCW There definitely is a maximum range, although it's hard to find places on the map where you charge that whole distance without hitting something. You can charge the maximum range while moving from point B to point A on Temple of Anubis and through the "carwash" on Watchpoint: Gibraltar. On the latter map, it's possible to charge towards the cliff and have your charge run out just as you reach it, sending any pinned enemies off the cliff. – ApproachingDarknessFish May 26 '16 at 21:41

  • @ApproachingDarknessFish Curious now- what's the carwash on Gibraltar? – KizTrap Jun 14 '16 at 22:33
