An ingenious Overwatch fan may have just tested the capabilities of Hero 31, Sigma, thanks to Blizzard's teaser video.
The Overwatch community has been working hard to find out more details about Hero 31. Helped by the Overwatch World Cup Team Mexico Twitter account, which Sigma seems to have leaked as the next character, there is not much confirmed information.
As fans behind the new hero, Blizzard, yell for any details On July 20, he distributed a cryptic test when a video showed Jeff Kaplan disappearing into a black hole and being replaced by on-screen equations. Now, a clever fan seems to have figured out what these equations suggested.

The Twitter post for the Mexican Football World Cup comes closest to Sigma in Overwatch.
In an incredibly detailed contribution to the Overwatch subreddit, the user ztokdo broke down the on-screen and theorized equations that might have already revealed Sigma's abilities.
According to Ztokdo, the three skills are likely to be a grenade that lands, stays in place and "bends bullets, projectiles and abilities around them". Another would be an anti-gravity jet that could be used to throw enemy players into the air.
Finally, the Redditor believes that Sigma will eventually have some sort of protection Ultimate that "feeds all projectile shots and abilities and uses them to Buff teammates.
The Redditor's contributions to the question of what the equation might mean for Sigma's abilities.
Ztokdo also stated that they believe Sigma will be introduced to the game and that he will be good against kinetic weapons and projectiles, resistant to energy weapons, but immune to EMP capabilities.
Of course, the Redditor also came with some complicated calculations from the teaser video in this conviction and showed exactly why they think this is right.

Members of the Subreddit were amazed at how easy Ztokdo made the hints, and hoped that their time and effort would be rewarded. "This is impressive! I hope you are right! "Added Klinxx.
Another user, melancholic, wondered if the poster was letting in too much and if Blizzard had actually bamboozled players like Sombra did.
It remains to be seen, however, what is actually official about Sigma when it comes to skills, as Blizzard has not published anything official yet.
