Overwatch players have rediscovered the game’s World of Warcraft themed emotes and now a number of them are asking how to unlock the lesser-known cosmetics.

Blizzard, who make Overwatch, also produce World of Warcraft so it makes sense that the games contain more than a few references to one another.

To celebrate the release of Battle for Azeroth back in 2018, Blizzard released two new Tracer emotes, some Torbjörn voice lines and a number of player icons.

Blizzard EntertainmentGo ahead and pick one already Tracer, you can’t be both.

How do we get the WoW cosmetics?

The World of Warcraft emotes for Battle for Azeroth are both for Tracer and have her planting either the flag of the Alliance or the banner of the Horde down.

For players who don’t know about the WoW emotes, seeing a Tracer pull them out can come as quite a surprise, and apparently provide endless entertainment to Bastion players, as this video from Reddit user BlizzconX shows.

Torbjorn’s voice lines are similar to Tracer’s emotes, one that says “For the Horde,” and the other “For the Alliance.”

The cosmetics are still able to be unlocked by Overwatch players if they purchase the World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth Collector’s Edition or Digital Deluxe edition, with the same account they use for Overwatch.

When will we get new Overwatch Content?

Even though Blizzard has been silent on new Overwatch content for the last week, we do know that the Summer Games event will be starting sometime around the beginning of August.

There’s also supposed to be a new Overwatch hero coming out sometime this summer, according to Director Jeff Kaplan, but other than a possible tease in the new Baptiste short story, we don’t have much info on them either.

Overwatch fans have been patiently waiting for any kind of new content since the Anniversary event and Baptiste’s Reunion Challenge ended, so hopefully Blizzard has some updates for us soon.


Overwatch champ Super helps Jimmy Fallon create “cringe” gamer name

Back-to-back Overwatch League champion Matthew ‘Super’ DeLisi was on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and helped the host come up with his own gamer tag.

During the October 26 interview, Fallon asked the San Francisco Shock main tank how he came up with his gamertag with the intention of creating his own.

As Super explained, back when he was a kid, he asked his brother to create an account for him. The name his brother came up with, for whatever reason, was Super7100 and he kept that for awhile.

“At some point I just decided the numbers looked stupid, so I cut off the numbers and then I was just stuck with Super,” he explained. “And I just kept it.”

To this, Fallon inquired about any possible formulas for coming up with a name in a segment that Super would later call “cringe” when he rewatched the interview on Twitch.

“How could I come up with my gamer name?” Fallon asked.

“You can find inspiration from literally anything,” DeLisi said, prompting Fallon to pick up his miniature of the Empire State Building.

“I could be Empire,” suggested Fallon. “Or, this is the Statue of Liberty,” he continued, picking up another model. “That’s an old thermometer. Maybe… Old Thermometer. That’s my gamer name.”

“If you’re feeling it, that’s all you,” replied Super who let out an awkward laugh.

“Jimmy ‘Old Thermometer’ Fallon,” he remarked. “And a come from behind win for Old Thermometer!”

Interestingly, this isn’t Super’s first time on Jimmy Fallon as the Shock player first went on the show back in 2019 with his former teammate Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won.

Whether Super is back for a third time may come down to if the Shock can win a third championship in season four of the Overwatch League having just won consecutive titles.
