Sombra V.3 (Complete Concept)

Notorious Hacker

"Everything can be hacked... and everyone."


Before taking up her current alias as Sombra - Olivia Colomar was among the many thousands of children who ended up orphaned as a result of the Omnic Crisis. Yet Olivia was a gifted child; at a rather young age - Her understanding of how to utilize computers and execute high levels of hacking was something that not only would save her but also lead her into being welcomed into the Los Muertos gang in which she found a home and begun taking on jobs that among many things; Included hacker attacks up on the government of Mexico which rapidly spiraled out of control and had Olivia descend into a tangled web filled with corruption and secrets which made one thing more clear than anything else - Knowledge is power.

After snooping around too much - Olivia was eventually found out and had to go into hiding. With help from the Los Muertos, she received a cybernetic graft and was "reborn" as Sombra. With her newfound alias and cybernetic improvements which allowed her to stay constantly on the move all the while executing her crafty hacker crafts; she became a force that many sought to both stop and hire. This all eventually led to Sombra getting involved with the criminal organization Talon where she to this day still works and along with this group; Have executed numerous actions which has led to more uproar around the world. One of her most recent actions which only solidified her intentions in life was when Sombra alongside Talon members Reaper and Widowmaker infiltrated Volskaya Industries in order to get a hold of Katya Volskaya. Yet once she had Katya in the palm of her hand, she instead struck a deal for her own benefits with her and let Katya go - Lying to her Talon companions about the end result of their infiltration.

As the Nexus lords called upon Sombra - It was utmost uncertain what their intentions was by bringing her to their realm. Some of the champions from the Nexus that hails from Earth speculates that perhaps Sombra somehow with her cybernetics and talents made her own way to the Nexus seen as how she knew that certain members of Overwatch had vanished recently. Having now found them in the Nexus and being part of an entire new world; Sombra readies up to see what information that can be extracted and abused within the Nexus.

Sombra deals 3% more damage to a hostile unit for each 2 seconds she holds active basic attack fire on said target. This effect can ramp up to a 30% increase in damage. The bonus is lost once the focused target is not shot within 5 seconds. Only one target can be under the Focus Fire effect at once.

Hack will now connect between two target and will hack a secondary target near your main target 0.5 seconds after the initial hack is cast. A secondary hack has half the effect of the original hack and will prioritize to land on a equal target of the same team (From Allied hero to Allied hero OR hostile hero to hostile hero, etc) and will as such only jump between different type of targets (Heroes / Minions / Mercenaries / Structures) on different teams should NO other "matching" unit be within range.

Denied Negotiations:

Latest tech:

The unrevealable state upon activation now lasts for 4 seconds.

Fleet of foot:

Gain an additional 10% movement speed while the empowered stealth is active and reduce the cooldown on Thermoptic Camouflage by 3 seconds.

Mirror Coating:

The Translocator can no longer be destroyed and is unrevealable no matter what - This effect breaks if the Translocator is placed within hostile Fort, Keep or Core Range; In which case it will become revealed and can be destroyed.

Material reconstruction:

Activating the Translocator will clear Sombra of any damage over time effects, slows, roots and will also shake off abilities which has the possibility to tail a target across greater distances. (Like ranged basic attacks and Pyro Blast)

Level 16

The Null Zone:

Sombra recharges her basic abilities 0.3 seconds faster per hostile hero within 5.5 range.

Mess with the best, die like the rest:

EMP has it's cooldown reduced by 4 Seconds per unit that got affected by a Hack. EMP now also instantly removes the shields on a hostile Core.

Talon Ambus now also lands a Heavy Assault in all lanes near your current deepest wave of minions. The Heavy Assault lasts for the same 15 seconds and will do twice the damage of Talon members inside the bushes to hostile units within 5.5 range. It constantly moves with the minions it is assigned too, will prioritize heroes over anything else and soaks experience for Sombra. Heavy Assaults have twice the health of a Talon enforcer and can be Crowd Controlled.

Inside job:

Hack can now be used on the Enemy's core and will now instead make it so that when a hostile structure is hacked; It will instead gain the benefits an allied structure would get - Yet the hacked structure will while hacked; open fire on it's own team.

Strings on you:

Hack gains an additional charge and will now turn hostile heroes against their own team for 1 second after the silence effect ends. During this 1 second, ability usage will be focused.

Skin suggestions

Like most heroes from Overwatch - They pretty much already have their base skins prepared with additional base tints but still; For reference - This is Sombra's main appearance:

As for a secondary skin; I do like all of her Epic skins from Overwatch and all that jazz but would love if they could "Extend" some on her Rime skin. Usually they do make a second original skin for Hots but I just love the Rime skin and would love to have it in Hots - Mostly a more Red / Orange tinted version.

Base Rime for reference:

Other concepts & More

I will list here once more of my concepts is made. Some of these concepts may also look familiar but that is because I am also "Rexx" whom has posted some hero concepts on the EU and US side forums for Heroes of the Storm.

This Sombra Concept is a re-construction of my very first hero concept from back in 2016 which was of Sombra (Bragging rights; I made that first Sombra concept the same day she dropped on the PTR and I was the first one on Heroesfire to concept Sombra) But times have changed and so has Hots so I decided to go back and re-work some of my outdated concepts; beginning with the lady that started it all.

Other hero concepts I have made: This list is now shortened and only contains my most "recent" concepts as I will begin re-working my older ones. Please see my Profile if you want to see my older and worse concepts. (I currently have a total of 40+ concepts on my Profile)
