There are a few heroes who are able to escape Zarya's Graviton Surge ultimate after being caught in it, including Reinhardt (through Charge) and Reaper (through Wraith Form).

If I escape Zarya's ultimate using one of these characters, is it possible to get caught in the ultimate again if I get too close?

  • It is a gravitational surge, so it would make sense that if you don't escape it area of effect that it would pull you back in.

Yes, it is possible. You can easily test this by Blinking just once as Tracer, it won't move you out of the area of effect and you'll quickly be caught again.

    Certain abilities like Winston's leap do not have sufficient momentum to escape in the first place. I also have trouble escaping if I'm near the epicentre as Pharah.

  • @KizTrap Nitpicking, but epicenter is not the correct word in this context. Just center is fine. Jun 17 '16 at 9:33

    @DanmakuGrazer Since you enjoy nitpicking, here's the second definition of epicenter from the Free Dictionary: " The focal point of a usually harmful or unpleasant phenomenon or event; the center:". So that's perfect.

  • @DCShannon But that's only used in metaphors, not in actual physical events like a Graviton Surge. Jun 17 '16 at 21:57

    @DanmakuGrazer I don't know what gives you that idea, nor do I feel like debating it. That was a perfectly good use of the word that fits with a common definition. I just want to caution you against randomly criticizing people's word choices without anything to back it up.
