An incredibly effective combo with Hammond and Sigma’s Ultimates in Overwatch instantly deleted an entire team without a chance to counter.

Since the mad Astrophysicist was added to the game’s roster in July 2019, people have been experimenting with his gravity-defying kit and how to best synergize it with the other heroes in Overwatch.

But it looks like the best combo comes courtesy of Sigma’s ult Gravitic Flux that lifts players up into the sky, with Hammond laying down a Minefield just before the other team slams down onto it.

The combo was pulled off by Reddit user ‘RainbowRobert’ and their teammate when there was a stalemate at the doorway near the B point on Paris.

Looking for a way to break the deadlock, Robert goes around the pillars to look for a quick flank that would open up the fight for their team to barrel in.

Popping Sigma’s ult, the player flew high up into the air just as the friendly Hammond swung into the action on their own accord.

Then it was a juggling act with the tank lifting the entire six-man side of the other team with the Gravitic Flux while Hammond slammed down into the ground just to pop his ult that lays down 15 proximity mines around him.

When the effects of Sigma’s ult expired the whole enemy team was left defenseless, dropping to the explosives that were put beneath them while they were lifted in the air.

The combo lit up the killfeed with all six members of the enemy team swiftly taken out with the prowess of the tank combo.

It must have been a sad realization for the other team. If you look at the Reinhardt, it’s almost like he knew what was coming since his shield was up looking and aimed right below them as they dropped.

But nothing could save the team, who were left without a lifeline to save them. The ultimate is one of the best combos with Sigma to come out so far.

It won’t take long before more players adopt the strat with hero 31 and Hammond that seems to be an effective way of clearing out a team in Overwatch.
