Lena Oxton (known as Tracer) is a fictional player character who appears in the 2016 video game Overwatchâ€”a first-person shooter developed by Blizzard Entertainmentâ€”and related animations and literary media. Tracer was first seen in the 2014 Overwatch Cinematic Trailer short. She was later introduced as a playable character in an April 2016 update for Blizzard's crossover multiplayer online battle arena game Heroes of the Storm.
The character, who is of British origin, has been noted by video game outlets to be peppy and energetic. In the game, Tracer has low health, but is highly mobile with her skills including a teleportation-like ability and time-travel. Those abilities were caused by an accident that left her unable to maintain a physical form in the present until Winston invented the chronal accelerator, a device that allows her to control her own time frame.
Tracer is one of the most recognizable Overwatch characters; she is prominently featured in the game's official media, including promotional works and the game's cover art, and also appears in fan art. Tracer has also attracted media coverage related to online controversies surrounding one of her in-game victory pose, as well as her prominence in fan-produced pornography, which Blizzard has tried to remove. The character has also appeared in Overwatch animated media and a digital comic series based on the game. In her comic debut, she is revealed to be a lesbian, a depiction that was positively received by media outlets and players.
Tracer was one of the first twelve Overwatch characters introduced at BlizzCon in 2014. Her in-game character model notably features tight orange pants, goggles, and Crocs-like shoes. Her design is based upon an element from Blizzard's canceled project, Titan. Overwatch s game director Jeff Kaplan said Titan included a class of character called "Jumper", which developed into Tracer because Overwatch focuses on creating individual characters instead of generic classes. The Jumper class was depicted as male in most of the concept artwork and its player version. Like Tracer in Overwatch, the Jumper was equipped with the Blink and Recall abilities, as well as a Pulse bomb and dual-wielding machine pistols. The design of Tracer's pistols were influenced by the G18 pistols featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
