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.

Sigma’s abilities give him the perfect opening for Hammond in Overwatch.

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.

Teamwork makes the dream work! :^) from Overwatch

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.

The combo was pulled to perfection with Sigma lifting the team just as Hammond came in swinging.

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.

Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
