Mercy's ult, Valkyrie, boosts all her abilities, but one feature that I never see anywhere mentioned, or anyone talking about, is how she can see enemy healthbars while the ult is active. Is this a bug or an intended feature?

I ask because it's a bizarre and unfitting buff for what her ult is themed around (boosting her existing abilities) and I literally don't see it anywhere even slightly mentioned. I can't be the only one to have noticed this, right?

(Note: Apparently it has been changed, Mercy can only see enemy healthbars if one of her teammates damages the enemy.)


This feature was changed in a previous patch:



  • Valkyrie
    • No longer shows enemies’ health bars unless they have taken damage

Developer Comments: This helps remove some clutter from Mercy players’ screens when they use her ultimate

Probably not a bug if it's specifically mentioned in patch notes.
