(This question is mostly FYI for this community of what I gather from Blizcon, also here are her skills. Source is an Overwatch Developer on a live stream just now)

Is Sombra fully invisible and not seeable by anyone while using her Termoptic Camo? Or is she partially visible in some situations?

    I'm voting to close this as off-topic. Sombra hasn't even released yet. She's only just barely been officially announced.

    Note: Sombra is currently available at a gameplay event at Blizzcon, which imo technically counts as released enough for our purposes

    According to this meta this is perfectly fine. The main reason we don't allow questions about unreleased content is because answers will be just speculation, but considering the OPs source is Blizzard then it's not speculation.

    @ИвоНедев Irrelevant. Unless it's playable, it doesn't matter one bit what the developer has said.

    She's released on the PC PTR now, so we can know more for sure.

Sombra can be seen by :

She will **not** be revealed by :

  • An enemy Sombra's Opportunist (Her passive revealing foes with less than 50% HP) (Experienced it in 1v1 in the arcade)

Special Mentions :

  • I will add source for the opportunist passive and both Widowmaker and Hanzo tonight.

She is mostly invisible except for these cases:

  1. If she's right on top of you; if she's right in your face you'll be able to tell that there's an invisible Sombra nearby.
  2. If being in the range of a sonic Arrow but only through walls
  3. Widowmaker's ultimate

Source Tim a Blizzard developer, go to 00:33:35.

    If she's visible in range of Sonic Arrow, I would imagine she's also visible with WM ult, which is basically an infinite range Sonic Arrow.

  • Do you have a source for this, or is it a guess? Nov 4 '16 at 19:59
  • @BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft its not a guess, it was stated on live stream by a developer Nov 4 '16 at 20:00
  • So then... you have a source? Nov 4 '16 at 20:01

    This doesn't look right. Sonic Arrow should always work, and Deadeye also doesn't show Sombra if she becomes invisible after the ult has started.
