Doomfist has become one of the most meta-defining characters in today's Overwatch, but one Korean YouTuber named Lee Cross has shown off some deadly tech can make the bruiser even more menacing. 

Overwatch montages may be getting a bit old, but every once in a while one comes along that will teach you a thing or two about how obscure mechanics in the game can come together to create something truly magical.

Take this montage, for example, called BBANGFIST from Lee Cross.

Thanks to the way Overwatch handles ramping, being airborne, and sliding along surfaces that you aren't supposed to be able to land on, Cross took full advantage of these things to ramp up the damage on Doomfist's Seismic Slam to maximum from heights that should have only done about half damage.

This led to situations where he would drop from a second story to do maximum damage to multiple targets, effectively wiping out most of their hit points and making them easy to clean up.

Not only that, but the way surfaces interact leads to some interesting routes to use with Doomfist's Rocket Punch and Rising Uppercut in conjunction. If you angle your Rocket Punch slightly upward and hit a corner of a surface, your forward momentum will shoot you off of that surface almost like a ramp.

Small tech like these lead to situations that allows Doomfist to get across the map like Pharah, and can really catch snipers and teams trying to hold choke poitns off guard, as seen multiple times in the video.

Some of the flanking routes shown off in this montage are truly jawdropping.

The entire video really must be seen to be believed, as this montage contains some of the most jaw-dropping moments of Overwatch gameplay, some that even professional Doomfist players could likely learn a thing or two from.

Some of the routes shown might be unpractical against a very well-coordinated team, but if mastered, it will surely aid your climb to Diamond or even higher on the Overwatch ranked ladder.
