A popular modder in the Minecraft community is continuing his epic project to bring Overwatch into the sandbox game, and recently revealed that he's fully recreated the healer support Mercy – it's the best thing you will see all day.

Blizzard Entertainment's Overwatch first released in 2016, and quickly became one of the most popular online team-based shooters with its diverse cast of characters that appealed to millions. The hero FPS's fanbase has continued to blow minds with their creative tributes to the game.

Prolific Minecraft modder 'McMakistein' shared his latest creation in honor of the shooter, and revealed during his November 22 YouTube video that he's fully recreated Mercy in the popular sandbox.

As if it wasn't impressive enough that he faithfully made the healer's model in the bite-size style, he had fans in awe after showing off how he got her special abilities working as well, making it look absolutely seamless and leaving many wondering how he does all of this with the game's engine.

Mercy is given life in Minecraft

The creator first showed off his Overwatch crossover in August when he blew minds by fully re-creating D.Va in Minecraft, including her Mech and her in-game abilities. However, the popular artist has now brought Mercy over as well.

In his YouTube upload, he showed off the healer in the sandbox, and demonstrated how her staff heals whoever it's pointed on.

Even more impressive is that he recreated the character's ability to fly to whoever she's targeting, and even gave her extra speed at the end so that she can fly to people standing on the edge of buildings.

In the video, McMakistein also showed that he's recreating Overwatch map 'Eichenwalde' and from what we've seen it's just as mindblowing as his hero creations, which he says are compatible with the map.

He also made Genji in Minecraft over three years ago, but another new iteration brings him in line with the game's latest changes. In another clip. he showed off Geniji's shurikens and his dash, but most insane is that he figured out to recreate his deflect ability, which he says was "very difficult" to do.

McMakistein has a mindblowing amount of mods for Minecraft that completely transforms the game in unbelievable ways. He was even featured in YouTube King Felix 'PewDiePie' Kjellberg's series, when he recreated the Swede as a boss mob for the YouTuber to fight.

The creator has stressed that this is the 'vanilla' version of the game, and posted on the Overwatch subreddit, stating, "The map only uses Minecraft commands and a resource pack, and does not require a modified game client to be run and played." You can check the mod out here.
