When playing as Tracer, I managed to stick my ultimate on Zarya who was half health, and while she didn't have her orb around her. However when the bomb exploded she didn't die.

I didn't get to see if she had activated her orb after. So my question to you is, can Zarya block the Tracer's ulimate even if stuck? Or was there some other factor that stopped her from dying?


Yes, Zarya's barriers will absorb all damage dealt to the hero they're on. It's impossible to damage a hero protected by Zarya's barriers, even with barrier-piercing effects such as Firestrike or Dragonstrike.

  • I'd like to add that Zarya's barriers will absorb all damage from the last attack hitting them, even if it breaks the barrier and most of the damage is overkill, as happens with Pulse Bomb or MEKA explosion. Unlike, e.g., Sound Barrier. – Alice Jul 27 '18 at 15:26
