Overwatch players have really taken to the new support hero Baptiste since he was added to the full game. However, how many of his fans would have expected to see him as a cat? It might be crazy, but it is brilliant. 

The game’s online community has produced some memorable hero-inspired creations since the game first sprung onto the scene in May 2016, and while this might be a strange take on the strong character, it might be one of the best yet.

Forget about all of the concept skins and hero creations for a second. Sit back and just enjoy this incredible feline version of Baptiste.

That’s not all, either. The animated design that you can see here is the main character of a video posted to YouTube by somebody many Overwatch fans will be aware of, dillongoo. They created similar cat concepts for Widowmaker and other heroes in the past. 

The content creator has given their cat version of Baptiste a very fitting name as well, ‘Catiste,’ who uses a weapon that seems to look like it’s been made with a toilet roll and straws – but that doesn’t stop the character from causing havoc in the short clip below.

The newest hero added to Overwatch is proving to be quite unique as well, as players have noticed something very different about his ability. 

It seems like if you time your shots right with the character, Baptiste has the ability to both deal out damage to opponents and heal others at the very same time.

The cat version doesn’t seem to have those same abilities, though. In fact, judging by this short video, it looks like Catiste is a lot more interested in getting his hands on some tuna than jumping into battle. 

Not the ideal teammate, you would imagine… Always running away to get food.

New Overwatch Shield Bash tech makes Brigitte even more powerful

A new Overwatch trick has just been discovered that could make Brigitte an even bigger threat on the battlefield than she already is.

Brigitte has been one of the game’s most controversial heroes since release thanks to her high levels of sustain, crowd control, armor, and healing. Despite multiple nerfs and reworks, she remains one of the best heroes in the right hands.

Now, players have found a completely new trick with her that is sure to make many players rage and call for nerfs to the Swedish shield maiden.

The trick, which was posted to a Korean YouTube account, shows that if Brigitte Shield Bashes at the exact same time she’s hit with an enemy’s attack that does knockback, she can travel far distances.

Shield Bash already has some slight movement advantages, but when combined with an enemy’s attack, she can torpedo across the map and even clear gaps that other heroes are unable to.

As you can see, when Brigitte gets hit in the back by Sigma’s Hyper Spheres, they do just enough knockback to allow the hero to use them to her advantage.

With this trick, Brigitte can even go from one side of Rialto’s bridge to the other in one swift movement, although it will take some getting used to if players want to pull it off in an actual game.

That said, enemy players could potentially use this to their own advantage, such as by hitting Brigitte with a melee attack right as she Shield Bashes.

In this clip by Overwatch streamer Aspen, she goes flying all over the map on Hollywood and had no idea why. As it turns out, it was because she was hit by a melee from a Tracer player just before bashing.

If timed right, this could cause Brigitte players to go flying off of maps with environmental hazards such as Nepal Sanctum.

Of course, with this new discovery, there also comes the possibility that Blizzard decides to patch it out. Only time will tell how the developers decide to handle it.
