Lucio is one of the fastest heroes in Overwatch thanks to his ability to wallride and amplify his momentum by jumping onto surfaces. However, a new Lucio clip pushes the character to his absolute limits in a mesmerizing display of control.

In a new video uploaded to Reddit, Puffis_Senpai takes a Lijang Tower Garden rollout to the next level by wallriding backwards all while maintaining an incredible speed, getting from his spawn door to the point in just over four seconds.

The trick to getting to the point so quickly is to first wallride and bounce off the spawn door, use the Amp It Up ability to increase one’s speed, hit surfaces to further carry that momentum, and then propel yourself over the environmental gap using the rock in order to get to the point through a window.

Pulling all this off, however, is far easier said than done. It requires a lot of practice to do correctly, and if messed up, can result in your death trying to cross the gap. And that’s just going forwards. It’s a whole different ball game trying to do the trick backwards.

In the backwards clip, the Lucio player does everything in reverse, with the exception of a neat 360 jump out of the spawn door. Everything else is smooth as silk.

According to Puffis_Senpai, he practiced the run for 40 minutes straight until he got a take he was happy with. “Had a lot of finished runs, even a .19, but this one was the smoothest I got yesterday and I had no time to keep going,” he wrote.

While doing the backwards rollout in an actual match may not be advised, learning how to do the rollout forwards could have its uses in the event you’re ever in a situation where you need to stall on the point.

Being able to get from the spawn back to the objective in just around four seconds can be the difference between victory and defeat.

Even if Lucio isn’t your main, learning this rollout can be essential to any support player in the event you need to swap heroes in a last ditch effort, and there’s no other support who can get to a location quite as fast as the South American hockey-playing musical artist himself.

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
