Crazy Overwatch glitch makes McCree shoot Deadeye from his butt

Overwatch is no stranger to bizarre glitches, but a new McCree bug that’s popped up recently is one of the most hilarious we’ve ever seen in the game.

Normally, McCree can only shoot enemies with his Dead Eye if they’re within his field of view and he fully locks onto them.

However, a new clip claims to show McCree shooting an enemy completely behind him – but it may not be as glitchy as it seems.

McCree’s ultimate can only target enemies within the hero’s field of view. Or can it?

In the clip, posted by Reddit user ‘Spatto99,’ McCree starts up his ultimate with all of the targeted enemies in front of him, as usual.

Just before he pops Deadeye, the enemy Genji dashes forward to what they think is the safe spot directly behind McCree.

However, when McCree activates his ultimate, he still manages to cap the Genji with a very aerobatic stretch that makes him look like he’s shooting straight out of his tush.

But is it really a glitch? At first glance, it doesn’t seem like McCree should be able to shoot Genji, since the cyber ninja is behind him; however, there may be more going on here than meets the eye.

We have to remember that the clip from Spatto is in slow motion, so even though it seems like Genji should be in the clear, McCree could still be locked onto him.

McCree must have activated Deadeye at the perfect time to hit the unfortunate Shimada brother, even as he appeared to be behind him, which made it look like McCree was aiming though his derriere.

McCree is infamous for his crack shooting skills, but this clip took that to a whole new level.

If it’s not on cooldown, the best bet for a Genji in that position is to pop their deflect (either that or try to get behind the closest possible cover).

Closer examination shows that McCree’s butt shot doesn’t seem to be a bug or glitch, but an interesting and hilarious display of the hero’s mechanics. Just don’t go trying to do this in a competitive match, or you’ll be a real pain in your teammate’s rears.

Overwatch players looking to find some new synergy between two unlikely heroes should look no further than a lethal combination with Tracer and Wrecking Ball.

Wrecking Ball can be one of the most annoying heroes in the game to deal with, constantly booping people away while remaining in his ball form.

Meanwhile, Tracer can do very much of the same, buzzing in the backline, harassing supports and just being a general menace to deal with thanks to her Blinks, Recall and small hit box.

Together, the threat of Tracer and Wrecking Ball can really dominate uncoordinated teams, but with a little coordination on their own part, the two can destroy entire groups with a neat ultimate attack.

Wrecking Ball can be a major threat in the back line.

As demonstrated by Twitch streamer ‘rene_ow,’ the Masters ranked Hammond player spotted a pack of enemies all grouped up on the Busan map.

After grappling to go in for a major boop on the four, the player’s allied Tracer blinked in and stuck her Pulse Bomb on the McCree.

With the McCree booped into the rest of the adversaries, the result ended up being a massive quad kill, with both supports and DPS heroes on the enemy team eliminated swiftly.

The insane combo was well-received by the team, which celebrated the quad kill. “That was nuts!” they cried with glee.

Perhaps the best part of this combo is that you don’t need the stick to connect. In theory, you can have Wrecking Ball knock the enemies towards Tracer or her Pulse Bomb radius to secure the frags.

This type of team play may take some serious effort to get right, but if you have a partner you synergize well with, it’s always possible that this combination can help you win Overwatch games, and rank up in style.
