A new glitch has appeared in Overwatch that makes Sombra’s translocator completely invincible when placed in certain areas around the game’s maps.

The Translocator is a key part of Sombra’s kit, players can throw it, then teleport to it’s location. This allows for her to quickly escape combat, quickly move around the map, and even combine it with her ultimate ability.

Normally, the abilities beacon can be destroyed by enemies if they manage to find it, but now players have discovered an bug that makes the Translocator completely invincible, but still usable by Sombra.

Sombra’s Translocator is one of the most powerful abilities in her kit.

A video from Overwatch YouTuber Bloomer_ow perfectly shows how the bug works, and it seems like it should be able to happen on almost any map.

“When you throw your translocator between two objects on the map or on weird geometrical forms on the map, the Translocator’s going to glitch, and that’s going to make it unkillable,” Bloomer explained. “It’s not even like it’s hidden, it’s unkillable.”

There are so many spots this glitch can be used on, Bloomer said he couldn’t fit them all in, but did explain how you can tell if it’s glitched or not.

For instance, there’s a point in the room with a large health pack by the second point of Volskaya that the glitch seems to work on and could be very advantageous for a Sombra to use.

Any players who are reading this and getting excited to cause some chaos with Sombra should be warned though: using glitches and exploits like this is reportable.

Taking advantage of a glitch would be a pretty on-brand move for Sombra, though.

The good news is that Sombra is currently unavailable in Competitive Play, so players can’t use this exploit to farm free SR, for another few days at least.

We can say with confidence this isn’t how devs intended for Sombra’s beacon to work, so there’s a good chance this will be getting patched out before too long.


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.
