Fan fulfills disgusting pledge after Overwatch 2 announcement

An Overwatch YouTuber did his best to live up to a dug-up Reddit bet for the consumption of a “cow’s d*ck” if a sequel to the game was ever announced.

As we know, Overwatch 2 was announced at BlizzCon 2019 with a new cinematic trailer, and a very early look at gameplay.

Along with the big sequel news, one Overwatch Redditor also dug up an old post where another user promised to eat a “cow’s d*ck” if a sequel was ever announced, asking them to own up to their promise.

It was soon revealed that the one who made the wager was Nate from the Blizzard Guides YouTube channel, and once posts on the bet reached the top of Reddit, there was no turning back.

As he found out, finding a cow member (more specifically a bull’s, since cows are female) isn’t very easy unless you know someone.

Luckily, he was able to find a version of what he was looking for at a pet shop, and a more edible option from a local restaurant.

“Beef pizzle” is intended for dogs to chew on, and Nate said it was impossible to get it into an actual edible state.

“It was kind of difficult to try and get a bite out of it, I tried rehydrating it, boiling it, but it didn’t change anything,” he said. “Considering this is just a stupid internet bet that Reddit told me to do.”

The “cow fries” (see: Rocky Mountain Oysters) didn’t seem too bad, and Nate chomped them like a champ, but the dog chew was practically inedible.

Other than a few tiny pieces, he wasn’t able to get anything off of the stick, but Nate can now technically claim to have come through on his side of the bargain.

If we’ve learned anything from this incident, it’s that if you have a popular YouTube channel, you should think twice about making outlandish bets on the internet without being willing to follow through.

Genius Overwatch trick lets Mercy escape fights on Numbani

Mercy has a new path to safety on Numbani thanks to an extremely clever Overwatch trick that lets her glide away from intense teamfights.

If you’re ever stuck in a pickle as Mercy, you can always fall back on her Guardian Angel ability to get you out of trouble. Moving from one spot to another in the blink of an eye can easily keep you alive when things are looking grim.

Angelic Descent also comes in handy, enabling Mercy as one of the more mobile Supports in the game. Her kit might be limited in terms of offensive output. However, she can move through the air like no other hero. It turns out her movement abilities might even be more useful than you’d first think.

A genius new spot on the first point of Numbani can have you gliding to safety in no time at all. Here’s what you need to know so you can execute it for yourself.

Directly behind the Payload is where you want to line up for this unique trick.

If you’re positioned towards the back of the first capture point, you might be familiar with the often-deadly drop. It can be all too easy to get booped and fall to your death in this position. Whether it’s a Lucio flying overhead or a Wrecking Ball crashing into your team, you’ve likely experienced some pain in this location.

However, playing near this spot is worth the risk for this particular reward with Mercy. A simple tree beyond the railing is actually the perfect distance to jump right into. Once wedged between the branches, you can quickly walk forward and navigate up the front of the tree.

While you might think there’s nowhere to go from here, Mercy’s Angelic Descent completely changes the game. With a perfectly timed jump, you can slowly glide around the corner. This lets you rotate all the way behind the first point and land safely next to the street.

There’s a Mega health pack waiting for you upon landing as well. Just in case you get tagged up while making your escape.

It might not come in handy for every team fight, but if things are looking dire, it could be the perfect way to get out with your life.

Not feeding the enemy team is often just as important as building your own Ultimates. So keep this unique trick in mind the next time Numbani appears in rotation. It’s just another next-level tactic for Support mains to have at the ready.
