Jeff Kaplan mentioned that Orisa's Fortify ability will resist some crowd control effects, such as Pharah's concussive blast. The gameplay video for Orisa on playoverwatch.com also shows her resisting a Reinhardt Earthshatter.

So, what other effects does it resist? Does it stop things like Roadhog's hook, or stop her from getting affected by Zarya's ultimate?


As per this Reddit post, Orisa's Fortify resists the following effects:

  • McCree's Flashbang
  • Pharah's Concussive Blast
  • Junkrat's Concussion Mine
  • Junkrat's Steel Trap
  • Mei's Endothermic Blaster
  • Mei's Blizzard
  • D.Va's Boost
  • Orisa's Halt!
  • Reinhardt's Charge
  • Reinhardt's Earthshatter
  • Roadhog's Hook
  • Ana's Sleep Dart
  • Lucio's Soundwave

After additional testing, Fortify also resists the following crowd control effects:

  • Soldier: 76's Helix Rockets (they have a very small knockback effect)
  • Roadhog's Whole Hog
  • Winston's Primal Rage
  • Zarya's Particle Cannon alternate fire
  • Zarya's Graviton Surge
  • Symmetra's Sentry Turrets
  • Bastion's Configuration: Tank
  • I'm not sure why Zenyatta's Discord is in this list as it's not an action-impairing effect. – Powerlord Mar 2 '17 at 22:05
  • That's a great answer and I'd rather you add to it than I simply link to the following: youtube.com/watch?v=YFkSCDPLkZQ they seam to mention the non-tested effects too. – Иво Недев Mar 2 '17 at 22:34
  • @Powerlord See the "crowd control effects to be tested" bit. – Kaizerwolf Mar 2 '17 at 23:24
  • Can you use fortify to break out of stuns or does it have to be used ahead of time. – VanBuzzKill Mar 3 '17 at 3:45
  • @VanBuzzKill You can't do anything while stunned. – Wrigglenite Mar 3 '17 at 10:01
