    Healing Torb

    I am probably not the first one to post this but I think Torb should be able to heal omnics by hitting them with his hammer. It would be chaotic but fun as well.

    I think it'd be cool to add just because it'd be hilarious to watch.

    Sounds quite similar to Lucio; getting up close to heal.

    I think Torb's turret could use a full revamp. Instead of levels, other than his ult, it should have different modes. And one of them could be altering your turret to heal allies at a certain proximity

    It'd be great, actually, if they did this but the amount was so low you never wanted to bother with it except for silliness. Like 5 health per thwack or something. Just enough to fit the lore, not enough to make Torb a healer in any respect.

    I just have this image of Torb coming up to a Zenyetta and smacking him around the head with his hammer lol

    Wouldn't be a bad idea really, doubt it'd have much impact on the game balance-wise but would occasionally be useful.

    I think he should be able to heal but for a small amount like 5%-10% of the omnics HP per swing so healing would be difficult to do but its still an option. I don't want to see torbs running around hitting omnics with their hammer all game but his hammer helping heal a little wouldn't hurt and would make torb more fun to play.

    So you are saying he could heal a character like Orissa? or Zenyatta?

    Yes he can heal only omnics which is a small amount of characters so it wouldn't have a huge impact on the game. But idk about genji since he isn't full omnic maybe the heals should be capped on him or heal for less when hit.
