Boston Uprising’s Lucas ‘Note’ Meissner pulled off a massive quad-kill with D.Va’s self-destruct against the LA Valiant.

Landing a huge multi-kill with D.Va’s self-destruct has always been tough in the Overwatch League – it’s a very telegraphed ultimate that is relatively slow to land and cannot be redirected once unleashed. For pro players, that leaves plenty of time to get away in most cases.

If anything, it’s only become progressively harder to land big D.Va ultimates, particularly after Philadelphia Fusion flex tank Gael ‘Poko’ Gouzerch‘s exceptional use of it in stage one forced teams to become even more proficient at escaping the blast.

On Blizzard World against the Valiant, however, Note managed to find an angle that left four of his enemies with nowhere to run. As the Uprising’s offence pushed towards the final point, Note effectively wiped out the Valiant to help secure the round.

The play came at a crucial moment of a map that the Uprising ultimately won, which would eventually prove crucial in the series. Boston took a 2-0 lead with the win on Blizzard World, but were forced to fend off a reverse sweep in a narrow game-five victory to secure the match 3-2.

With that win, the Boston Uprising advances to 9-0 in the stage, just one win away from a clean sweep of the Stage 3 regular season matches. The team is currently on a 13-match win-streak, running on from the end of Stage 2, the longest undefeated streak of the league. The team’s final opponent before the Stage 3 playoffs will be Los Angeles Gladiators.

Incredible Overwatch custom game lets you drive a ‘Lamborghini’

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
