Overwatch’s newest hero: Ashe, was released to the PTR on November 5, along with all of the skins for her and her Omnic sidekick B.O.B.

Ashe and B.O.B. have taken the Overwatch world by storm since they were announced at BlizzCon 2018, and fans finally had the chance to try her out on Monday on the PTR.

They also got to check out all of her emotes, voice lines, and, most importantly, all the skins for Ashe and B.O.B.

There are the standard color-variant skins that every hero gets and are the least rare, two epic skins, and four legendary skins.

Two of the Legendary skins were previewed at BlizzCon with concept art, but this is the first time players have gotten to see the final, in-game product.

Ashe comes into Overwatch as a DPS hero, wielding her Viper rifle, which can shoot from the hip and be zoomed in with secondary fire.

Her ultimate calls in the already infamous B.O.B., who acts like a seventh hero for the team and a powerful turret.

Overwatch YouTuber discovers how much weight Junkrat carries per game

An Overwatch YouTuber has done a lot of research to determine how much weight Junkrat carries on him in a single round of Overwatch.

The destructive Australian hero has an insane amount of equipment on his person. His frag launcher, grenades, two mines, a bear trap and of course, his Riptire ultimate on his back.

While it’s not very realistic for a hero to carry around that much on his person, the hero himself isn’t very realistic to begin with, as he literally walks around on one leg and uses his own mines for vertical mobility.

Firstly, the YouTuber had to go through all the items and find some real word comparisons beginning with Riptire.

Junkrat carries a lot of weight on him during a round of Overwatch.

For this, Fraglrokt decided to use the tire fellow YouTuber Colin Furze made, which is 16 inches and powered by a chainsaw engine. Once factoring the weight of the tire, its rims and the engine, it comes to a whopping 74 pounds.

And that’s only for a single tire. Junkrat’s ultimate comes up pretty fast, so it’s likely that he’ll be carrying at least three per round.

When it comes to Junkrat’s grenades, Fraglrokt decided they were close enough to the M67. With five grenades per reload, we’re looking at 4.4 pounds.

After looking over former Overwatch League pro Jake ‘Jake’ Lyon’ and average players to see how often they reload per round. It was determined that Jake reloads around 35 times while average players do so 57 times. This equals out to being 44 times a round, which when multiplied by 4.4 comes out to 202.4 pounds.

Moving onto the trap, Fraglrokt took the middle ground after looking at a couple of options and decide that Junkrat’s is probably 36 pounds. With players using an average of 13 traps per round, it comes to 468 LBS.

Finally, moving onto Junkrat’s mines, seeing as they resemble anti-tank mines, that’s what Fraglrokt decided on for his real-world comparison. With players using 35-42 mines per round, that comes out to a staggering 1058.75 pounds.

After factoring all the results, including the Total Mayhem passive, it was determined that the hero carries approximately 2,000 pounds every single round of Overwatch.

Of course, the whole video was just for fun, but it really puts the absurdity of Overwatch in perspective.
