I think she doesn't like to kill deep down, because she went back to her dead husband's grave. That the brain wash made her to the killer she doesn't want to be. She has almost no emotion and like the spider with no emotions it kills and "...at the moment of the kill they are never more alive" (6:39). What if she just kills to feel alive. To feel a emotion. To feel alive. To feel... happy.

Poor widowmaker 💔 its so sad

Widowmaker is Amelié LaCroíx, she USED to be normal, back in France she would be doing Ballet, she got married, and had a beautiful mansion, then, She gets brainwashed, and murders her husband in her sleep because of Talon, DOING all of this, the brainwashing, kidnapping her, she even almost got HARMED during the kidnapping, she never returned for a while, Geŕald was worried, and then she comes backs blue, Gerald was still happy though, And 2 weeks later, they activated the experiment, and Amelié had shot Geŕald in his sleep. In conclusion, she call herself Widowmaker an assassin, because she can't feel emotion, ANYMORE. Just like spiders, she isn't scared of spiders ANYMORE, because she has no emotion, and also is blue, and the experiments are still going on with Talon.

She shit Ana through scope huh? Any body think of that sniper scene in scaring private Ryan?

I’m sure Widow has only one emotion, Hatred, why else would she have the interaction with D.va saying “this is no place for children” Because of getting defeated by a 14 year old Also Kaplan: we’re waiting for Timmy and Bryan to become playable characters

I know there is only a 1% chance of it ever happening but I hope Amelie can break out of her Widowmaker brainwashing, betray Talon, and join Overwatch to avenge her husband.

Bluenite The Warrior (1 month ago)
they probably use a type of brainwash that changes someone personality not wiping her memories in total. So changing her view on the world and change her feelings on a more deeper level that made her a cold heart killer is the widowmaker we know. Probably why widow tells ana in game when reminded she killed her husband she says "you dont what happen" she probably has moments where she can think freely without talon giving her an order.

Ik the comments are serious but I'm still lmao to this "her dick name was widowmaker"
ExileTheOutcast (2 months ago)
What if Widowmaker's brainwashing is the same as Jill Valentine's brainwashing in RE5? Jill performed all the atrocities Wesker ordered her to but she was still aware of her actions even though she wasn't in control of her body. Maybe the same could be said about Widowmaker?
Playrina (2 months ago)
i like to think, she knows about him (her lover, sorry can't spell his name) she knows his dead but she doesn't know that she did it. maybe Talon told her someone killed her when they were brainwashing her. if they did do this Sombra may find out and may tell Widowmaker about it she can goes mad and turns on Tlaon. that would make a good story

You know that moment when you’re in the most ridiculously stupid argument with someone and your mind just goes blank? I had a friend that was trying to argue that widowmaker was the most op hero because she has a sniper rifle AND a machine gun, and all I could do was say “wh-, bu-, *sigh* yeah she’s pretty broken.” And I just felt like the biggest idiot in the whole world.

I believe that Widowmaker is slowly breaking out of her brainwashing and actually developing feeling again. She wont tell anyone else in Talon obviously, but it seems like she's trying to make her old life again. Start up from where she left off. On the amount she kills, I think that, because she feels alive again, it her way of finding her true self again. Who knows how she will handle the killing though.

The reason spiders hearts never beat? Because the majority of them literally do not have one. They're too small to need them, they don't even have lungs. Holes on the spiders surface actually provide oxygen to each of it's cells individually, also means no blood. (No circulatory system at all)

The capacity to kill the want to kill or in her case The grill of the kill is in bedded in human nature it's a part of who we are but it is also human nature to Deni such devior it's present in some people than others and I guess that talon brought that out of her and used it to blind her to morality

If you look closely at the thumbnail on the right side. You can see that her hair is purple right beside her hair. I think it’s supposed to be blue, or grey if it’s supposed to be part of her infra sight “thingie.”

I don't think Widow was a killer before the brainwashing. Once she was stripped of all human emotion, she would have also been stripped of any reason to live or carry on, other than being ordered to help this organization. At this point, she learned to kill. She felt a rush, a thrill, an *emotion* at the moment of the kill. It became obvious to her, now, that such a good feeling in her vast sea of cold emptiness was the only reason she needed to carry on. She loved feeling something - anything - she needed to feel alive. Maybe it is because death was what brought her into this state in the first place, or being a kill was the first time she experienced a relief from the emptiness. All she knows now is that if she wants to feel, she must kill. It isn't her fault, and this is something she will never, ever, be able to escape. However, it definitely seems that in more recent times that took place closer to the time of the game itself, she has begun to feel something else. No one knows what it is - it could be grief or remorse, a deep, burning regret. It could be a sad nostalgia for the life she used to have. It's hard to say, but it is clear to me that this change in her heart could lead to something drastically unexpected. Perhaps... one of the greatest villain retributions of all time? An irrecoverably ill sociopath's struggle to find her humanity and maybe even use her heart-breaking condition for the use of good some day? Of course, this is incredibly far-fetched. But in some distant universe, Widow misses her dear husband and wants to honor his days as a hero. Even if she can never be good, never be *human,* maybe she can at least do that for him... for herself.

Look at the little kids face at 4:17
I think I read something that Overwatch was meant to be a movie, but made into a game to pay for animation. If this shit is true, I can't wait to see Amélie's backstory movie-style!! Also I wonder what her personality was like before her transformation? Was she light-hearted? Witty? Quiet? Introverted or perhaps extroverted? Did she have a passion for ballet leading to her career? So many questions...
