Additionally, Illari is rumored to have a hitscan-like rays that can either deal damage or heal, depending on the target. Her ultimate ability is said to be similar to Raze’s from VALORANT, featuring a single rocket that deals damage and applies a debuff to those hit.
Regarding Illari’s origins, speculation suggests that she may have Peruvian roots. The ‘Peru’ poster found on the Overwatch 2 Antarctic Peninsula map looks similar to the teaser image used in the Overwatch 2 Roadmap.

Also, the Overwatch community has pointed that her name and the use of the Quechua language in her rare skin names hints at her being from Peru.
