An Overwatch player has got an insane movement tip for Hammond that might just save your life if someone tries to knock you off the edge of Busan’s C point. 

As Overwatch characters have different movement mechanics, there are incredible ways to get around the different maps. Players will regularly practice these rollout and flanks in a bid to get a leg up on their opponents – be it a casual game or something a bit more serious. 

Hammond, otherwise known as Wrecking Ball, is the most popular character behind these flanks given that he can use a grappling hook to hit hard to reach places.

However, if you ever find yourself about to be knocked off of Busan, there is an interesting flank that you can pull of in order to save yourself.

The popular character is able to pull off some sneaky movement tricks.

The impressive movement was showcased by Reddit user WeponizedAutismo, who had been playing a Control game when they found themselves in danger.

Multiple enemies tried to knock the Hammond player over the edge of Busan and even though the Redditor was eventually pushed over, they quickly grapple hooked themselves around the side – avoiding death.

The Redditor managed to swing around the outside of the map, jumping back into the fray as they managed to reach the connector area between the C point and spawn.

They also put it down to having “weird map knowledge” and noted that they’d come up with the idea previously before pulling it off. “I thought of the rollout but I didn’t think it would work, but as we can see, It actually did. So yes, basically I did that on purpose,” the Redditor said

Obviously, not every Hammond player will be able to pull off the incredible feat, but with a bit of practice and map knowledge, it could be something that saves lives moving forward.

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.
