The 2019 Overwatch Anniversary event has arrived, celebrating three years since the game’s release on May 24, 2016.

Anniversary is a celebration of all things Overwatch, meaning as well as introducing a selection of new skins and emotes, Anniversary also unlocks a variety of other content that is usually restricted to the three-week run of other events during the year.


As with the 2018 edition, this year’s Anniversary event will offer players the chance to experience various Arcade Brawls that are usually unavailable outside of their respective events.

The Brawl featured in the Arcade will change each day of the event, which lasts from May 21 to June 11, so if you’re a particular fan of one of them it’s worth making the most of it while it’s there. If you miss out it will be at least a week before the mode returns, if at all.

Blizzard EntertainmentPlayers who missed the recent Storm Rising event will get a chance to experience it during Anniversary.

The Brawl schedule will follow a consistent rotation of game modes each week, starting off with the Summer Games’ Lúcioball, followed by Halloween’s Junkenstein’s Revenge and Christmas’s Snowball Offensive and Yeti Hunt, before finishing with a run of Archives missions.

The second week will also the “Endless” variant for Junkenstein’s Revenge, as well as the All Heroes versions of the three Archives missions, Uprising, Retribution, and Storm Rising.

Overwatch players have discovered a new way to counter Doomfist’s pesky ultimate, Meteor Strike.

Overwatch has a host of colorful characters for players to get their hands on, but Doomfist stands out as one of the most popular heroes on offer in the game. A force to be reckoned with, the hero has come to dominate both the casual and competitive Overwatch scene.


Multiple Doomfist tactics have become popular recently, including the infamous Blizzard World flank that has been wreaking havoc across the Overwatch world.

Also, his ultimate Meteor Strike remains one of the most impactful ultimates in the game.

Looking for a Doomfist counter? Well, this Reddit user might have found one of the best yet.

Doomfist ultimate counter discovered

Overwatch players collectively sigh as they watch Doomfist soar high into the air before crashing back down to earth and unleashing a blast of energy which obliterates your entire team.

Yet, his reign of terror may be coming to an end due to a discovery by Reddit user Genji and Ana main.

Their post showcases how Reinhardt’s Charge ability can interrupt Meteor Strike, making it useless.


How to counter Doomfist’s ult (twice) from Overwatch

Just as Doomfist connects with the ground, a perfectly timed Reinhardt Charge can knock him out of his ultimate, subsequently seeing him get pinned to Reinhardt and demolished against a wall. Genji and Ana main demonstrates this a couple of times, proving that the infamous Meteor Strike can be countered if the player gets their timing just right.

This neat trick is a game changer. While he remains a staple DPS for many Overwatch players, Reinhardt has equally risen in priority due to his strength and mobility. If Reinhardt continues to dominate him in the 1 v 1, Doomfist players will have to change up their strategy.

Is this the end of this infamous hero’s dominance? Only time will tell. In the meantime though, it’s worth giving this a spin.
