Wondering how old Reaper is in Overwatch? Here's what you need to know.

Reaper, a deadly close-range damage Hero, is an American mercenary who's real name is Gabriel Reyes. Armed with shotguns and abilities that know how to make the most of them, Reaper is a force to be reckoned with in close quarters. Sadly, though, due to the spread of his weapons and lack of mobility, he's not the best pick for mid to long-range fights.

Despite the amount of damage he can deal, making him a great counter to even some of the toughest tanks, Reaper isn't usually one of the top picked Heroes. This comes down to the fact that he can be easily countered by high level players, therefore appearing towards the bottom of DPS tier lists.

Despite this, the biography and lore for Overwatch Heroes can still make for some interesting reading. So, if you want to get more information on the deadly mercenary, you might be wondering just how old he really is.

How Old is Reaper in Overwatch?

Reaper is 58 years old in Overwatch, making him one of the older Heroes available to play. For him, though, his age is likely just a number. Thanks to experiments performed by Doctor Moira O'Deorain, Reaper's cells simultaneously decay and regenerate at a hyper-accelerated rate. While his condition is no doubt a painful purgatory, he's only able to stay alive thanks to Moira's experiments.

In age, Reaper is surpassed by the likes of Ana (60), Reinhardt (61), and Sigma (62).
