Intense Overwatch fighting game puts heroes in head-to-head combat

What is quite possibly the best Overwatch fighting game ever made in the Workshop is back and better than ever. Welcome to the world of Overfighter.

Overwatch as an arcade fighter has been an idea that fans have tossed around almost since the title’s 2016 release, with plenty of heroes that would fit right into the fighting game format.

This is where the “Overfighter” Workshop mode comes into play. With early versions first released in 2019, it’s a wild mashup of Soul Calibur-style combat featuring the heroes we know and love, along with Brigitte.

More than a year later, Workshop Maestro Darwinstreams has come out with a brand-new and improved version, Overfighter 2.0, that adds more fighters to the roster, new stages, special abilities, and more.

The playable heroes battle it out with their regular abilities, but there are also a number of original special moves they can pull off, along with fatality-esque animations to finish off one-hit opponents in style.

Since Overfighter changes the perspective from first-person to a third-person side view, it’s highly recommended if you want to try this mode out, you switch your movement keybinds from WSAD to DAWS

If you want to try out Darwin’s new-and-improved Overfighter Workshop mode all you need is a willing friend to fight against, and the workshop code: NKNK9.

We mentioned special moves before, and one of the best Overfighter has to offer is Reinhardt’s ‘Whirlwind’ attack (shown in the video above), which we like to think was inspired by a suggestion from Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel himself all the way back in 2018.

At this point, there have been more custom games like Overfighter made than would be possible to list in one article, and it’s pretty crazy to think about all the time that’s been put in, especially considering Overwatch’s custom game mode designer tool is just over a year old.

Workshop isn’t just all fun and games though. If, for instance, you’re looking to practice with a specific hero without embarrassing yourself in Quick Play, there are also plenty of modes that will help you improve no matter who you’re playing.

How to use OP Torb turret placement in Overwatch Junkenstein’s Revenge

Junkenstein’s Revenge is one of the best ways to earn loot boxes during Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event, and there are a few spots for Torbjorn’s turret you should probably know about.

Halloween in Overwatch means plenty of new skins to unlock, including the Ragdoll Echo skin, which is now available until the event ends on November 3.

The only way to unlock the DPS hero’s new skin though is to win 9 games in any mode. If you stick to quick play and competitive this could easily take one or even two whole days, but if you simply grind them out in Junkenstein’s Revenge, the wins will only take a couple of hours instead.

Even though the seasonal PvE survival mode goes quicker than regular matches, you can definitely still lose if you don’t have the right team comp. This means that at all difficulty levels, Torbjorn is still a must-pick for his turret and it’s constant damage output.

You won’t get far in the harder difficulties of Junkenstein’s without Torb.

As for where to put this powerful, Zomnic-slaying device, there are several options that all work quite well, and are all fairly easy to pull off too – like on top of the overturned cart right down the middle lane. It has a commanding line of sight for the middle and left staircase spawns, and even covers part of the pond on the right side.

The best part of this spot might be the fact that it’s too close for Zombardiers to immediately target it, and it will hold boss aggro for as long as it’s around.

Next, placing the turret on the railing right on top of the left-hand stairs also gives it a great shot at all three spawns instead of just two, and gives you the ability to run up there and repair it when needed.

Finally, if you’re looking for something extra flashy to really impress your teammates, there’s even a way to get the turret up to the wooden platform just above the door where Widow and Ashe usually hang out.

Like in the clip above, head up the stairs to the right and go on to the platform they lead to (the place we all used to place the turret). Then head to the ledge closest to the door and aim at the ridge on the tower above the platform, straight up from the bush on the right side.

Another option is to jump from the edge and throw it at the apex of Torb’s leap if you have trouble getting it there while standing still. Toss it up, and your little guy is all set to rain down death on the army of undead charging the gates, and hopefully unlock that Echo skin a little bit quicker.
