Overwatch Workshop guru and Twitch streamer DarwinStreams' popular training mode to help players get better at aiming Ana’s Biotic Grenade now works for even more heroes.

DarwinStreams came out with the Ana Grenade Practice Tool in May and it helps players learn exactly where they need to throw their grenades from in order to precisely hit its mark.

But it’s not just Ana players who can use the mode for some practice. The mode also works with Ashe, Mei, Torbjorn, Orisa, Zarya and even Baptiste.

"Engaging long-range shields"

Similar to how the mode works for Ana, other heroes can also bring up a display that shows where on the map they’re projectiles will land and their area of effect, based on where the player is aiming.

For example Orisa can now see where her barrier will land, this allows players to practice long range deployments on maps, a skill that could end up saving a teammate or two during a match.

Players can also get their Baptiste healing grenade shots tightened up as well and since he’s a fairly new character the AOE display for his grenades could help players get more healing out to teammates.

Ashe can practice getting her dynamite in just the right spot and Mei can practice yeeting her Blizzard from miles away onto an enemy team, which is always a good time (for the Mei, at least).

For players who want to practice their long range shots, even if it’s not with Ana, the code is: VDESV.


New Overwatch patch, new Replay system

Overwatch got a major new patch on June 18 that included a number of her balance changes and also brought the Replay system to the main game from the PTR.

Since the new Replay feature came out, players have been capturing highlights, hilarious moments and anything else you can think of with the tool.

Players have a ton of Overwatch content to check out right now, just be sure to keep an eye out for Ana Grenades falling out of nowhere.
