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.

Hugely popular YouTuber Mr Beast has given the prize of a lifetime to a 17-year-old Minecraft player who made an incredible in-game farm as part of a YouTube video.

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has become well known on social media for his entertaining videos with often quite bizarre concepts, along with the enormous prizes he gives to friends, fans, and strangers for participating in his content.

He has previously enlisted his gigantic 46.4 million subscriber strong fan base to help him in charitable projects like Team Trees, and even previously bought a $600,000 island which he had his friends compete to win.

More recently, Jimmy decided to launch a channel exclusively for gaming, playing games like GTA V, Among Us, and of course Minecraft, but with various high stakes twists. That channel alone has now accumulated 10.5 million subscribers in the short time since it launched.

Mr Beast’s challenges consistently go crazy on YouTube.

For this video, Jimmy challenged 100 Minecraft players to see who could build the most impressive farm within just an hour, with the prize for the best one set at a whopping $50,000.

Minecraft players battle it out for the coolest farm

It’s safe to say people were prepared to stretch their creativity to its limits for this challenge, and some of the most interesting farms included a giant Dr Phil shaped farm, some Among Us inspired setups, and even an amazing Team Trees inspired farm as an homage to Jimmy.

Along with his friends, and a subscriber (who he also gave $10,000,) Mr Beast took the time to rate each farm, with the players managing to create some rather complex interiors in such a short time.

However, the ultimate winner Crusty435 impressed Jimmy’s team with an intricate crop duster, a device used to water crops, that was suspended above a field of wheat. This player also had constructed an awesome looking windmill, which the team praised for its originality.

Crusty was absolutely stunned when Mr Beast informed him that he’d won the huge sum of money, and the 17-year-old could be heard yelling “I need to tell my Dad, I need to tell my Dad.”

Naturally for Mr Beast, the video has already scored over 5.5 million views within just a day of being posted, with people delighted for the lucky winner who secured the insane prize.
