New Brawl: Uprising

This PvE game mode has 2 versions -- one with set characters and one where you can pick anyone. The set characters are: Tracer, Torbjorn, Mercy, and Reinhardt.

This is a multi-part mission that has you completing several objectives while fighting several "Null" bots. The first part requires you to hack 3 different terminals. This is done by going to each location and standing in the zone until you get them to 100%.

After that, you must defend the payload while it "warms up". You will fight enemies until the timer hits 0. The payload can be damaged and destroyed, so keep enemies away.

The next part requires you to escort the payload to the destination, while still keeping enemies from destroying it. The final part has your team destroying 4 Orisa bots.
