LA Gladiators’ main tank Baek ‘Fissure’ Chan-hyung dropped two Earthshatters within a mere six seconds during an online ranked match.

Though Fissure is best known for his Winston play (and, rather fittingly, in particular for his incredible ultimate usage), he’s also an incredibly skilled Reinhardt, and he put those skills to good use in a recent match in the online competitive playlist.


Ultimates in Overwatch are designed to be incredibly powerful, in many cases the kinds of abilities that can decide the outcome almost single-handedly when used to maximum effect. Reinhardt’s Earthshatter is one such ability.

As a result, in theory they’re supposed to take a significant amount of time to build up. In most cases, players are doing well to get even the quicker ultimates up for every other fight – Fissure, however, managed to drop two in the space of mere seconds.


Playing as Reinhardt on Lijiang Tower, Fissure opened up an engagement by dropping the Earthshatter. Having brought down several enemy players, Fissure then went to work with the hammer, before a friendly Graviton Surge helpfully brought multiple players together, maximizing Fissure’s efficiency. By the time the Graviton expired, Fissure had yet another Earthshatter to unleash.

Former pro player turned Overwatch League analyst Jonathan ‘Reinforce’ Larsson found himself on the receiving end of Fissure’s double-Earthshatter, causing a rather amusing reaction as he fell victim to several crowd-controlling ultimate abilities in quick succession.

Fissure himself was also streaming the game, capturing the epic play from his perspective.



Insane Overwatch Wrecking Ball Tracer combo obliterates enemy teams

Overwatch players looking to find some new synergy between two unlikely heroes should look no further than a lethal combination with Tracer and Wrecking Ball.

Wrecking Ball can be one of the most annoying heroes in the game to deal with, constantly booping people away while remaining in his ball form.


Meanwhile, Tracer can do very much of the same, buzzing in the backline, harassing supports and just being a general menace to deal with thanks to her Blinks, Recall and small hit box.

Together, the threat of Tracer and Wrecking Ball can really dominate uncoordinated teams, but with a little coordination on their own part, the two can destroy entire groups with a neat ultimate attack.

Wrecking Ball can be a major threat in the back line.

As demonstrated by Twitch streamer ‘rene_ow,’ the Masters ranked Hammond player spotted a pack of enemies all grouped up on the Busan map.

After grappling to go in for a major boop on the four, the player’s allied Tracer blinked in and stuck her Pulse Bomb on the McCree.

With the McCree booped into the rest of the adversaries, the result ended up being a massive quad kill, with both supports and DPS heroes on the enemy team eliminated swiftly.


The insane combo was well-received by the team, which celebrated the quad kill. “That was nuts!” they cried with glee.

Perhaps the best part of this combo is that you don’t need the stick to connect. In theory, you can have Wrecking Ball knock the enemies towards Tracer or her Pulse Bomb radius to secure the frags.

This type of team play may take some serious effort to get right, but if you have a partner you synergize well with, it’s always possible that this combination can help you win Overwatch games, and rank up in style.
