Dallas Fuel support player Benjamin ‘uNKOE’ Chevasson showed off his mechanical skills with a flawless Widowmaker five-kill in ranked play.

Despite playing support as a professional, uNKOE demonstrated he’s more than capable of dealing out damage with a Widowmaker highlight worthy of any DPS player.

While “support” players might often be overlooked in favor of the mechanical flair of DPS players, in Overwatch the existence of heroes like Ana and Zenyatta has resulted in elite Support players needing to be extremely mechanically gifted as well as having the suite of positional and decision-making skills necessary to perform all of the other demands of a great support.

At his pre-OWL peak, uNKOE was known as one of the world’s best Ana players. In the Overwatch League itself Ana has never been given much space, overshadowed by a variety of other support heroes throughout, but there was a time when she was practically omnipresent. At that time, uNKOE’s skill with the support sniper was matched by very few others.

It seems that uNKOE’s sniper abilities haven’t been lost, despite their neglect at a professional level. While streaming ranked play, uNKOE pulled off an incredible sequence of Widowmaker kills, landing eight consecutive shots, of which six were headshots, to close out a game on Volskaya.

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.
