The new workshop mode in Overwatch has rejuvenated the community, with endless possibilities for new ways to play, as well as methods for improvement – such as this brilliant firing range to improve your accuracy.

Launched back in April, the workshop mode gives players the power to create their own modes, mini-games and more, using the maps and heroes available.

There is so much freedom for players in the workshop, that modes can be made that bear almost no resemblance to typical Overwatch matches, for all kinds of new experiences.

Blizzard EntertainmentThe new workshop in Overwatch has been a brilliant addition to the Blizzard title.

While most of the modes have been focused on wacky and weird ways to play, like a Skyrim-style stealth map, or the return of the Ana paintball mode.

These modes make for a great change of pace from the standard casual or competitive games that Overwatch offers, but now players are using the workshop for more practical reasons.

YouTuber PMAJellies has made a genius firing range style mode, specifically designed to help you practice your aim with all variety of heroes and weapons.

You can choose whatever hero you want to practice with, ideal for trying out a new main or or perfecting your gameplay with your favorite pick.

PMAJellies’ aim mode is similar to workshop maps in CS:GO, which have long been used to train and perfect the recoil patterns.

To play the mode, you will need to use the code WRP63.


Dafran shows off incredible Overwatch Dynamite tactic with Ashe

Twitch streamer-turned-farmer Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca showed that he is still insane at Overwatch by utilizing a simple trick with the hero Ashe.

Dafran has long been considered one of the best Overwatch players on the planet, despite only spending one stage in OWL back in season 2. While he was known mostly for his sensational McCree, Soldier, and Tracer plays, the Danish DPS star can also frag out on Ashe.

During a December 3 broadcast, Dafran found himself attacking on Junkertown and in a prime position to help his team capture Point B.

On the Ashe, Dafran noticed all sorts of enemies were grouping in a small room they need to funnel through to get into the streets phase area. With his Widowmaker ally using her ultimate to fully reveal their location, Francesca decided to take matters into his own hands.

Ashe can be a big threat with Dynamite.

With his B.O.B active on the other side of the room and the enemies waiting for the big Omnic butler to disappear before they made their move, Dafran threw his Dynamite barely inside.

Ashe’s Dynamite can be one of the most impactful abilities in Overwatch, dealing massive damage upon the explosion and then a bit more over time. Those closest to the explosion take 50 damage with 100 burn damage coming over time.

Once the Dynamite exploded, the enemy Ashe, Baptiste, Zenyatta and Widowmaker were at his mercy. Speaking of Mercy, the Dane had one pocketing him, making sure he inflicted extra damage.

With some simple hip firing, he was able to eliminate the three targets before ADSing to dink the Widow for the quadruple kill – plus, 60% in brand new ultimate charge for another B.O.B.

“That’s an Overwatch League play, dude!” he exclaimed. “Holy f**k, dude.”

The best part about the whole sequence is just how simple it really was, and there is no reason you can’t replicate it in your games. Just remember how easy Ashe’s Dynamite can be to land if you don’t overcomplicate the toss and opt to just hip fire.

It may not be the flashiest, but it can win entire team fights with relative ease. Give it a shot next time you queue up as DPS.
