Overwatch 2 Season 6 brings a new backstory for its controversial PvE mode, which explains the new uprising of Null Sector. In order to stop them, old and new Overwatch team members join forces and get ready to face strange mecha-like enemies.

Overwatch 2 Season 6 begins with this world-scale invasion from Null Sector, but this isn’t the first time that we see them interrupting the peace in Overwatch’s lore. Here’s what we know about them in the Overwatch 2 Invasion update.

Overwatch 2 Invasion: Null Sector background

Overwatch 2 Null Sector is a dangerous Omnic terrorist group, that is known for using violent methods to achieve what they call ‘Omnic rights’. Omnics are what Overwatch calls artificially intelligent robots, but are as sentient as human beings.

Null Sector’s first appearance was in the Overwatch Archives event of 2017. Players could face them with Overwatch Uprising PvE mode, along with Overwatch Retribution. Both game modes retell the story of Null Sector’s uprising on the streets of King’s Row. The extremist Omnic group has then appeared in every Overwatch Archive event.

Ramattra then became a monk, studying with different masters for years and trying to understand how to achieve peace between Omnics and humans. According to his backstory, Ramattra couldn’t handle the discrimination against his race and later created Null Sector.

Null Sector’s mission in Overwatch 2 is to dominate humans and Omnics alike, in order to establish ‘peace’ through violent terrorist attacks.
