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 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. May 26, 2016 at 21:41

  • @ApproachingDarknessFish Curious now- what's the carwash on Gibraltar?
