Broken Overwatch glitch lets players shoot through Eichenwalde wall

Twitch streamer Mihai ‘ML7’ Lupascu discovered an interesting – and potentially busted – Overwatch glitch on Eichenwalde that allows for projectiles to pass through a wall.

While playing in a Reinhardt arcade mode during a queue for a competitive match, the Romanian support specialist noticed a wall in the area leading into the Eichenwalde castle appeared bugged, with a strange black line visible through it.

“Is this a bug?” he asked with a confused look on his face. After lining up a shot, the streamer used his Fire Strike, and was stunned to see the projectile pass through the wall.

This new bug can ruin games for players.

“Wait, what?!” he exclaimed, completely in shock at what he had witnessed.

Mere seconds later, Lupascu quit the arcade game to load up a custom game on Eichenwalde so he could try to replicate the wall glitch with Ana – his main hero.

“There’s no way,” he laughed while approaching the spot.

Lo and behold, ML7’s Biotic Grenade managed to pass through the wall. Not only that, but Ana’s Sleep Dart also passed through. “Are you f***ing kidding me?!”

Given how this unique interaction was so easily duplicated, it was clear that this wasn’t a miracle of quantum physics, but rather a genuine issue with the game that could potentially have some serious impact.

Just imagine a team clumped up on the other side of the wall thinking they’re protected when suddenly they get slept, grenaded and hit with a Fire Strike.

Upon some further testing, ML7 also discovered that the wall trick only works one way, so those on the other side won’t be hit.

Nonetheless, it’s a pretty significant glitch that could end up costing players games if abused. Hopefully, Blizzard is aware of the problem and fixes it before the Anniversary Event goes live on May 19.

Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
