Attacking Temple of Anubis in Overwatch can be a difficult task if your team lacks the communication necessary to make it work. That said, a neat combination of moves with Wrecking Ball and Sombra could be the ticket and it only requires one Ultimate.

The major difficulty in attacking point A on Anubis and capturing it comes down to the defense being positioned on the high ground just before the point. From this spot, they have a clear view of the attackers and can fire down at them through shields while the attackers can either go left, right or down the middle.

However, even finding a way to move forward in any direction can be a death sentence. The attackers’ left is a tight corridor where forces can easily be pressured, have shields broken and eliminated. The right forces the team through a large health pack room and upstairs where once again, they can easily take large chunks of damage.

The middle, meanwhile, can be a quick team wipe without the help of a Lucio Speed Boost. And even then, you will take damage trying to rush straight to point.

Wrecking Ball can create major problems in the enemy backline.

Normally teams end up capping through some sort of defensive collapse, either through poor Ultimate management or being caught out of position. That said, when a defense is strong it can be seemingly unbreakable, which is why streamer Fitzy had to coordinate a big play to make the attack work.

With time ticking down in the attack, the Sombra specialist called on his Wrecking Ball player to get into position way behind the enemy’s defensive position on the high ground. He also called on his Ashe to ready a Dynamite and send BOB to point – something that was a bit overkill seeing as how the plan worked out.

Once the Ball was in position, Fitzy used Sombra’s EMP, completely removing the enemy all three of the enemy shields. With Orisa, Sigma and Brigitte’s barriers down and the defenders unable to use any abilities during the EMP’s duration, they were sitting ducks.

The Wrecking Ball player then came in with a Grapple, knocking all of the defenders off the high ground and followed it up with a Piledriver into Ana Biotic Grenade. The end result was a swift team kill.

The best part of this combo is that it’s very easy to coordinate in your own ranked games, but it will require you to use a microphone, which has actually been proven to increase your Competitive winrate.

Next time you’re forced to attack on Temple of Anubis, try this plan out and reap the rewards.


Dafran shows off incredible Overwatch Dynamite tactic with Ashe

Twitch streamer-turned-farmer Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca showed that he is still insane at Overwatch by utilizing a simple trick with the hero Ashe.

Dafran has long been considered one of the best Overwatch players on the planet, despite only spending one stage in OWL back in season 2. While he was known mostly for his sensational McCree, Soldier, and Tracer plays, the Danish DPS star can also frag out on Ashe.

During a December 3 broadcast, Dafran found himself attacking on Junkertown and in a prime position to help his team capture Point B.

On the Ashe, Dafran noticed all sorts of enemies were grouping in a small room they need to funnel through to get into the streets phase area. With his Widowmaker ally using her ultimate to fully reveal their location, Francesca decided to take matters into his own hands.

Ashe can be a big threat with Dynamite.

With his B.O.B active on the other side of the room and the enemies waiting for the big Omnic butler to disappear before they made their move, Dafran threw his Dynamite barely inside.

Ashe’s Dynamite can be one of the most impactful abilities in Overwatch, dealing massive damage upon the explosion and then a bit more over time. Those closest to the explosion take 50 damage with 100 burn damage coming over time.

Once the Dynamite exploded, the enemy Ashe, Baptiste, Zenyatta and Widowmaker were at his mercy. Speaking of Mercy, the Dane had one pocketing him, making sure he inflicted extra damage.

With some simple hip firing, he was able to eliminate the three targets before ADSing to dink the Widow for the quadruple kill – plus, 60% in brand new ultimate charge for another B.O.B.

“That’s an Overwatch League play, dude!” he exclaimed. “Holy f**k, dude.”

The best part about the whole sequence is just how simple it really was, and there is no reason you can’t replicate it in your games. Just remember how easy Ashe’s Dynamite can be to land if you don’t overcomplicate the toss and opt to just hip fire.

It may not be the flashiest, but it can win entire team fights with relative ease. Give it a shot next time you queue up as DPS.
