Hilarious Overwatch emote swap bug is affecting every hero

One of the funniest Overwatch bugs we’ve ever seen lets any hero in the game use any other character’s looping emote, and we’ll tell you how to do it yourself right here.

Bugs and glitches are nothing new to Overwatch at all, but we haven’t seen anything as funny as this emote-switching one since Wrecking Ball players figured out how to activate crab mode.

Over the past few days more and more clips, like this one of Soldier: 76 busting out an Echo move, have started to pop up which show heroes using emotes they shouldn’t be able to. Now, Dexerto has discovered the bug is 100% reproducible, and pretty easy to do yourself, and we’ll explain how down below.

Is this legit ? Have I missed something ? 😂 from Overwatch

It’s important to note that not every emote can be done by every single hero, even with this glitch. Only emotes that loop, like the anniversary dances or Lucio’s DJ set, can be forced onto other characters, like Pharah doing Torb’s little jig above.

The info on how to pull this off was originally posted by YouTuber Jeff Why, and before you get going you need to pick out which dance emote you want to rock with to start out.

It’s important to note that this glitch will not work in any regular Quick Play or Competitive match, but it will work like a charm in modes where your hero is randomly selected, like Mystery Heroes. How to pull it off is listed below (along with a video guide from YouTuber Not Muda):

  1. Choose whatever dance or looping emote you want to use.
  2. Queue up for Mystery Heroes (or another mode where hero is chosen for you).
  3. Go to Hero Gallery and find your desired emote.
  4. Have emote selected on equip wheel when “game found” message appears.

If you do it correctly, using the default emote option on the control wheel should have you busting out whatever moves you selected, no matter who your hero is.

However, there is one major drawback to our fun here. If you die in Mystery Heroes, your emote will be reset, and the only way to get it back is to leave the game and do the entire process all over again. That said, it does work wonders as an incentive to try not and die right away!

Blizzard hasn’t made any indication that they’re aware of this glitch, but in all honesty, this is one they really should just leave alone. It can’t be used in Competitive, gets deleted with one death, and has absolutely no effect on gameplay other than letting everyone have a little bit more fun.

We’d bet even Jeff himself would crack a smile watching Winston do his best Symmetra dance.


How to complete Cannavaro ICON SBC in FIFA 21: solutions, cost, more

EA SPORTS has released another trio of new ICON cards for FIFA 21 including one for legendary Italian center back Fabio Cannavaro, and we have all the info you need to unlock it quickly and without spending every single coin you have (hopefully).

Icon cards are some of the most powerful to come out in each new FIFA game, and Prime Icons are the best of these best, so it’s no surprise that Cannavaro is an absolute powerhouse.

The Italian was part of his nation’s 2006 World Cup-winning team, and has so many more accolades that could be an article itself. But we’re not here to look at that, we’re here to look at his FIFA 21 stats, requirements, cheapest price, and solution, so let’s get right into it.

Cannavaro Prime ICON SBC in-game stats

Stats for Fabio Cannavaro’s Prime Icon card in FIFA 21.

Obviously the highlight here is Fabio’s Defending, and why wouldn’t it be? It comes in at a 95, a three-point upgrade from 92 on his Mid-tier card.

Pace sees a four-point boost from 76 to 80 as well, and Physicality is also up three from 82 to 85 for this card. If you’re building an Italian team to end all Italian teams, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a bigger brick wall than Cannavaro.

Cannavaro Prime ICON SBC price & requirements

For a card with such high-end defensive stats, it’s not all too expensive if we look at how ICON cards have been normally priced. Altogether it should run you around 894,000 to 1.2 million FUT Coins, depending on which platform you prefer to play on.

If you’ve played Ultimate Team at all you’ll know that ICONS aren’t just expensive, they also mean a lot of requirements. Here there are seven separate ones to complete, but you do also get a pack reward for each as well, in addition to Cannavaro’s Prime ICON card at the end.
