Committed members of the Overwatch online community have produced some incredible fan-made designs since the game was released, but there’s a catalog of cosplays being developed by Frostbite Cosplay which might be the most impressive selection of outfits yet.

A team consisting of two sisters from Arlington, Texas, have been bringing some of the most popular Overwatch heroes to life with their astonishing creative works, but not a lot of people had seen their designs – until now.

After over a year of creating incredible cosplay outfits and hoping other accounts share their designs, they’ve started posting them on Reddit for people to enjoy.

A closer look at one of their most impressive Overwatch hero cosplays to date, Orisa.

The pair, known as Frostbite Cosplay, were met by members of the Overwatch subreddit with open arms after their posted a number of their custom-made outfits to the page, along with a simple message of: “Some of the Overwatch cosplay my sister and I have built.”

The designs posted to Reddit, which show off the pair’s attention to detail with incredible mechanical parts, include some of the most popular heroes in the game. These include: Zenyatta, Torbjörn, Orisa and more – many of which received compliments in the online thread.

“Absolutely fantastic,” one Reddit user said, which seemed to be the consensus on the post, but some other people wanted to get to know Frostbite Cosplay a little better. “First of all, holy cow that’s amazing. Secondly, over what period of time did you both make these?” another redditor asked.

“Honestly we’ve kept very few of them,” tacmed85 responded, presumably one of the sisters. “Of these pictured, Orisa is the only one I’ve still got. Although with two more Reinhardts, a Mercy, and a Zarya currently in construction and all our non Overwatch stuff my garage is basically a costume storage unit.”

There’s no doubt that Frostbite Cosplay will be back with more posts about their 3D outfits in the future. After all, the subreddit seems to have fallen in love with these incredible designs.

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.
