Workshop mode spawned quite possibly the best Overwatch fighting game ever with OverFighter, and now the roster has added Brigitte into the mix.

DarwinStreams, the Workshop mode master, created a fighting game version of Overwatch called OverFighter, and it has been a hit among fans.

A fighting game has always been in the cards for Overwatch due to the wide selection of characters with all sorts of abilities that would help them stand out in a fighter.

Blizzard EntertainmentBrigitte didn’t bring her cop skin.

“I will prove myself!”

OverFighter launched without the full roster of heroes found in Overwatch, but the mode is still bringing new characters with future updates.

The most recent update, v1.1, added Brigitte into the mix so now players will have a new character to learn and tinker with. A short trailer was also revealed to show how she will work.

There were other changes too

Outside of the addition of Brigitte, there were some other changes added to the mode, such as an increase in score needed to win, buffs and nerfs to heroes, and some bug fixes.

You can take a look at all of those changes below. If you haven’t tried the mode out, you can do so with code NKNK9.

  • Brigitte added as a playable hero
  • Score to win increased from 3 to 5
  • Short stun added in the beginning of every round to avoid abusing of early hits (while the camera is still setting up)
  • Some random bug fixes — Balance changes
  • Torbjorn heatlh and damage increased
  • Genji health decreased to 200 but damage slightly increased
  • Winston damage increased

Blizzard EntertainmentBrigitte has arrived.

DarwinStreams is very well-known in the Overwatch community as constantly coming up with new ideas to implement into the game.

One relatively new one includes him creating a walking Zenyatta, which is something we’re not sure anybody wanted, but it’s here for those who want it.

Well Darwin might be the most famous Workshop creator, there are numerous others out there with their own designs so make sure you check them all out!

Simple Overwatch trick lets any hero reach King’s Row high ground

A surprisingly simple Overwatch trick is making the rounds that lets any hero in the game reach the high ground of the King’s Row attacking spawn.

King’s Row might be one of the original Overwatch maps, but it has definitely stood the test of time and is still one of players’ favorites when it comes up in the queue.

One of the most popular features on the map is the little sniper’s nest platform located at the very top of the first attacking spawn that gives a commanding view of everything up to the capture point.

It seems like only heroes with movement abilities like Pharah, Widow, or D.Va for example could get up there, but there is a way to get any hero in the game up to the position as well.

King's Row Attacking spawnThe sniper’s nest has been there since day one, but not every hero has been able to get up there, until now.

The person we have to thank for this technique is Reddit user jordensmet who somehow discovered that you can use a more mobile character to reach the space, then quickly change to another.

First, they select Baptiste and use his Exo Boots to boost up to the second-highest level, just under the top platform. Once there, they position themselves on top of the scaffolding in front of the main exit and jump again while barely touching the spawn room.

If you pull up the Hero Select menu at the right time, you’ll be able to switch to any hero you like. So if you’ve never had the chance to try out Ana, McCree, or whoever else from on high, now’s your chance.

I found a way to get the highground on the attacking side of King’s row for Ana (or other characters that usually can’t get there). from Overwatch

For instance, if you really want to catch an aggressive enemy team off-guard, why not take Reinhardt for a spin and hit them with a charge from the very top rope. For those wondering, yes, a Rein charge out of the top window will get you all the way to Mondatta’s statue, so make sure your team is ready to push!

One final note to add is that doesn’t necessarily have to be Baptiste that you use for this trick either, Echo and Pharah would both work, and if you’re really fast and in need of a challenge, you can even get it to go with Sombra’s Translocator as long as your timing is absolutely perfect.
