REMINDER: The Game Isn't Canon.

General Discussion
The games people play in every day and the abilities of the hero's are not canon.

Some abilities do make an exception, of course.
Aw, man. I was really hoping that Soldier: 76's Sprint was a thing.

Unfortunately, Soldier only knows how to walk in the lore.

Sorry man, that old dog hasnt learned any new tricks
A powerful gauntlet that can level skyscrapers, but can't move bastion while he is sentry mode
Does this mean D.va can't say "I'm number 1" repeatedly?

I think they changed that a few updates aho
Imagine what good writers could do with all these colorful characters and places in terms of lore. Instead they just didn't even bother and decided to tell a story that has basically nothing to do with the actual game. Lame.

Let's list the exceptions:
Doomfist's Rocket Punch
Genji's Deflect, Swift Strike and Dragonblade
McCree's Combat Roll
Pharah's Jump Jet and Rocket Barrage
Reaper's Wraith Form and Death Blossom
Soldier: 76's Sprint, Helix Rockets and Tactical Visor
Sombra's Hack, Thermoptic Camo and Translocator
Tracer's Blink, Recall and Pulse Bomb
Bastion's Configuration: Sentry and Configuration: Tank
Hanzo's Scatter Arrow and Dragonstrike
Junkrat's Concussion Mine and RIP-Tire
Torbjorn's Turret
Widowmaker's Grappling Hook, Venom Mine and Infra-Sight
D.Va's Boosters
Orisa's Fortify [and possibly other abilities]
Reinhardt's Firestrike, Charge and Barrier Field
Roadhog's Chain Hook and Take a Breather
Winston's Jump Pack, Barrier Projector and Primal Rage
Zarya's Particle Barrier, Projected Barrier and Graviton Surge
Lucio's Soundwave
Mercy's Guardian Angel and Resurrect
Moira's Biotic Orbs and Fade
Symmetra's Energy Ball and Photon Barrier

If I've missed any, let me know, but...

That's most of the in-game abilities that I know of [or remember] being canonical. And what do you know, that's most of the abilities, so some is an understatement.
So Doomfist doesn't have Paper Bones and Glass Skin?

Ressurect is actually a non canon ability.

The move itself isn't, but the visual itself is.
It messed me up so much to see that Graviton Surge was actually something Zarya could canonically. This should by extension mean Halt is also possible
I'd wager that the game is merely a combat situation in terms of the lore, rather than just a flat out non-canon affair.

Considering his shield tanked multiple clips from Tracer in his animated trailer, I think it's assume this is true.
