Hilarious Overwatch easter egg brutally roasts Torbjorn on Blizzard World

No one is safe from Overwatch’s easter eggs, even their own characters, as Torbjorn gets hit with an easy roast by Blizzard World’s roller coaster announcer.

A Redditor, ‘Owlero,’ has been on an absolute mission—compiling every single easter egg that fans seem to have let slip by on Overwatch’s Blizzard World map.

And this latest one is hilarious, albeit at the expense of one of the game’s greatest heroes: the Swedish hammer, Torbjorn Lindholm.

 

Blizzard World is a cool map. It has rides, nods to Blizzard IPs and, apparently, a ton of easter eggs. Many of these had been spoken about before the map came out, but most of us hadn’t gotten the chance to witness them in action just yet.

In this particular gag, Torbjorn approaches the Diablo-themed rollercoaster near the map’s second point and is met by the announcer, Deckard Cain, poignantly roasting him through the speaker system: “You must be as tall as the bottom of the sign to ride…and you’re not.”

The roast most certainly fits, as Torbjorn stands at about 4’7” with shoes on. On a good day, and maybe if he hops onto his turret, the Dwarven Scandinavian can pop right into the 5’0”-plus ballpark. 

His character design may have been inspired by Warcraft’s Dwarves, but we won’t take this ableist slander. Overwatch is supposed to be a place for inclusivity and diversity.

Torb stands just a smidge taller than his trusty turret.

While there has yet to be a petition mounted or any protests planned, those must be on the horizon. If anything, Overwatch 2 can satiate the masses if the developers simply decide to enable a full rollercoaster ride for everyone’s favorite turret builder.

 

Fortunately, Torbjorn can still hear about the ride in the meantime. When Blizzard World isn’t hotly contested by teams jousting over the payload, his daughter Brigitte can hit the theme park and give her father all of the details.

In armor, Brigitte is believed to be about 6’0”. That puts her well within the range needed to bypass Cain’s restrictions and experience everything Blizzard’s virtual playground has to offer.

Still, if you’re feeling particularly unmotivated and want some fuel, feel free to walk around Blizzard World as Torb and earn an easy chip on your shoulder.

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.
