Ashe and B.O.B. haven’t gotten to experience Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event, but one creative fan has seen to it that they have the appropriate outfits when it rolls around again.

B.O.B. and Ashe were first introduced at BlizzCon 2018, which happened in November after Halloween Terror had ended for the year, so 2019 will be the first year the two get to experience the event.

Artist and Overwatch fan Armondo Gonzalez-Dorta stunned fans earlier in the week with his original Vampire Ashe skin and now he’s back with an equally awesome skin for B.O.B.

Vampire B.O.B. is finally here

Like Ashe, Gonzalez-Dorta has transformed B.O.B. into a creature of the night with adorable little bat wings and a petite top hat.

As Vampire Ashe’s loyal Omnic servant, B.O.B. looks ready to dig some graves (hopefully to bury Ashe’s victims, and not to dig anything up) with his new massive shovel.

A vampire isn’t a vampire unless they can turn into a bat, so Gonzalez-Dorta even created an adorable bat form for B.O.B. that would be a great way for him to fly away after being deployed by Ashe instead of just jumping.

Vampire B.O.B. would be the perfect companion for Vampire Ashe this Halloween, now it’s all up to Blizzard to make it happen.

We would definitely buy some loot boxes to try and unlock these.

Overwatch fans love their original skins

Ashe and B.O.B. weren’t the only heroes to get a new fan-made skin this week, McCree was also turned into a Talon double agent by one creative fan.

Overwatch fan and artist Dave Lopez gave McCree his Talon makeover, that could work as a Halloween costume too, in a pinch.

With Summer Games officially over on August 5, fans will have at least a few months to wait for any official skins until Halloween Terror begins sometime in October.


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.
