Crazy Overwatch Orisa exploit makes Supercharger indestructible

A new exploit that’s making the rounds in the Overwatch community allows Orisa to deploy her Supercharger where enemies can’t target or damage it on Junkertown.

Orisa’s Supercharger is a powerful ult that buffs the damage of each teammate within range, but it is vulnerable to being destroyed by enemies while active. However, a new exploit on Junkertown seems to put it in a spot where it still works, but can’t be hurt.

Orisa’s Supercharger can turn the tide of almost any fight in Overwatch, if your team cooperates that is.

Normally, Supercharger is deployed with 200 health, which honestly isn’t a whole lot when the entire enemy team is trying to burn it down.

But, an exploit currently making the rounds on social media allows Orisa’s Supercharger to either go below ground or into the ceiling on the second checkpoint of Junkertown.

How to abuse Orisa supercharger on Junkertown from Overwatch

In the clip above, you can see that Orisa puts the charger down right in the doorway with the gate that drops down as you advance the payload, however, instead of staying where it should, the ultimate sinks down with the door to sit completely underground.

Even though it’s technically cut off from the rest of the team, it still provides the damage buff, and since it’s actually under the map, it can’t be targeted or damaged by the enemy team either, almost ensuring you a team fight win.

This doorway on Junkertown seems to have more weird effects on the Supercharger as well, if you put it down just before the door goes up it will rise up into the ceiling. Just like the first time it will still buff teammates, but it can’t be hurt by enemies.

Obviously, this isn’t how Supercharger is supposed to work, in both cases, it should be destroyed by either the Payload or the door itself, and it definitely shouldn’t be able to continue buffing teammates when it leaves line of sight.

But it is, so if you’re defending on Junkertown against a particularly annoying Orisa, it might be wise to wait to engage the enemy team, after they reach the second checkpoint and the door goes up. Hopefully Blizzard will fix this soon, but at least it’s only happening in one spot, on a single map, which means you don’t have to worry about running into it all that often.

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
