Dallas Fuel’s Effect gets destroyed by insane Widowmaker shot in ranked Overwatch

Dallas Fuel’s Hwang ‘Effect’ Hyeon fell victim to some incredibly unfortunate timing during a game of ranked Overwatch.

Effect was practicing his Genji on Volskaya when he died to a seemingly impossible shot by the enemy Widowmaker.


The enemy team held the high ground on the left side of the first point (as seen from the attacking spawn-side) and Effect saw a perfect opportunity to dash through them. Before he had even completed the movement, however, he was picked out of the air by a headshot from the sniper.

Naturally, Effect reacted with utter incredulity at what initially appeared to be a shot that would require inhuman reactions. Even the greatest Widowmakers in the world couldn’t hope to hit a Genji mid-dash, especially at such close range.


If the shot raised any suspicions of hacking, however, they were immediately cleared by the kill-cam. Far from hitting the greatest flick-shot of all time, the enemy Widowmaker wasn’t even aware of Effect until the elimination registered in the kill-feed.

Widowmaker had instead been aiming for a Zarya that was down on the point beneath them, but with some incredible luck and timing managed to headshot Effect as he dashed past. The Genji wasn’t even visible in the kill-cam.

Genji’s dash may be so fast that it almost looks as if he teleports from one location to the next, but he does still physically travel as he performs it, making it possible to hit him during the dash. As can be seen by the kill-cam here, however, doing so requires an immense amount of luck, as trying to deliberately keep up would be almost impossible.


Buzz Lightyear Baptiste concept turned into awesome 3D Overwatch skin

Some awesome new 3D Overwatch skin ideas turn Baptiste into Buzz Lightyear and Soldier: 76 into a toy soldier from Toy Story.

There’s no shortage of new skins in Overwatch right now with the 2020 Halloween Terror event in full swing, but Soldier and Baptiste weren’t included with the heroes who got new cosmetics.


Perhaps sensing that the pair might feel left out, an Irish Overwatch coach and Workshop Mode maestro, Andy ‘andygmb’ Bohan, took the time to render them two fantastic skins straight out of Toy Story.

The idea of Baptiste cast as Buzz Lightyear was actually a skin idea created earlier in 2020, but Andy took it to the next level with a full 3D model that would actually make a decent Baptiste Halloween skin itself.


The support hero actually looks spot-on as the boisterous spaceman, with white and green armor perfectly matching the designs worn by Woody’s partner.

Neither Baptiste nor Buzz can technically fly either, but both manage to get airborne in other ways, either by jumping in the Overwatch hero’s case, or various ways of “falling in style.”

Soldier, appropriately enough, has been turned into one of the green army men every kid had in their toy box growing up. Though, how he’s be able to sprint with a plastic base locking his feet is something we want to see.

These two would fit right in with LEGO Bastion as well.

While Andy created the renders, he said it was a team effort, with artist ‘stealthii‘ helping out with rendering and Overwatch Workshop guru ‘DarwinStreamscontributing his talents as well.

As with any Overwatch crossover that involves a big-name brand like Toy Story, the chances of it actually happening are sadly pretty slim. We did see a LEGO collaboration for Bastion so it might not be entirely out of the question, but we wouldn’t hold our breath.

While Buzz Lightyear Baptiste and Toy Soldier: 76 might just be awesome ideas for now, you can pick up some awesome new skins during the Halloween Terror event while it’s still going on.
