B.O.B runs directly into a Pub in this hilarious Overwatch blooper

New Overwatch hero Ashe has become an immediate fan-favorite, thanks to her snappy gun, attitude and most importantly, her sidekick B.O.B.

Ashe’s Ultimate Ability is B.O.B, a giant, A.I controlled robot that wreaks havoc on the enemy team and acts as a seventh teammate.

However, as this clip shows, sometimes he gets thirsty and doesn’t feel like fighting.

Ashe’s trademark yell alerted the enemy that he was about to unleash her Ult, saying “B.O.B, do something!”

She should have been more specific as B.O.B did “something,” running past all the action and directly into the Wolf Wood’s Pub, where he had very little impact on the Payload objective.

Wolf Wood’s is a pub located on the Junkertown Escort map, where we imagine Junkrat, Roadhog and Hammond spent many nights avoiding responsibilities. B.O.B only wanted to join them, he’s under a lot of stress lately, being a new character and all. 

The clip was recorded by the appropriately named Reddit user Drunken_Queen, who surprisingly turned down the opportunity to join B.O.B and stayed near the Payload instead.

Ashe users may not always have their sidekick sober and ready to help, but they can be sure their hip fire shots are always accurate with this Overwatch tip.

B.O.B and Ashe may also get some new skins soon, the Overwatch Winter Wonderland event is happening in December.

Overwatch meets WarCraft with epic RTS custom game mode

Overwatch and RTS games like WarCraft and StarCraft might seem like complete opposites, but the two styles have been combined into a very promising-looking Workshop mode that lets you control multiple heroes as if they were individual units.

If we look at Blizzard games like one big family tree, then the StarCraft and Warcraft franchises could probably be considered something like Overwatch’s grandparents.

Back in the day StarCraft especially was one of the biggest esports on the planet, but the RTS genre has sadly fallen to wayside in recent years. Both still have dedicated communities though (even after the disaster that was Reforged) and it’s safe to say a good number also play Overwatch now as well.

Irish Overwatch manager Andygmb clearly hasn’t outgrown his love for real-time strategy, not that one ever does, decided to take the top down style from those games and apply it to all of our favorite heroes using Josbird’s cursor tool in the Workshop mode.

You can scroll around the map, and drag the map to select multiple units and control them all at once. Like an RTS game, you can tell them where to go, and when to attack something.

Right off the top of our heads if they ever were to make an Overwatch game like this, we’d wager that Roadhog rush would be a great opening build to start with.

But it doesn’t take much to imagine a League of Legends-style game as well being made playable with this type of game either. Sure, Blizzard already has Heroes of the Storm, but that only features a few Overwatch heroes to choose from, where this could add the whole roster.

Overwatch has over 30 different heroes that could make all kinds of different units.

With Heroes of the Storm already existing (and producing cooler skins for D.Va than Overwatch itself) our chances of seeing an official RTS featuring the game’s heroes are unfortunately slim to none.

That has never stopped players before though, so we’d keep our eyes out for some kind of League clone to appear before too long on the Custom Game browser. Until then, you can always waste more time playing Among Us there as well.
