Moira Conspiracy Deepens With Latest Story Hint from Overwatch Retribution Mission

A statement from Moira on the Retribution mission has added another detail to the story surrounding the event.

The Retribution mission sees four Blackwatch agents, Gabriel Reyes, McCree, Genji, and Moira, infiltrate a Talon facility in retaliation for an attack on Overwatch.

The original plan, as demonstrated by the preceding digital comic that also showed the incident that prompted the mission, was to capture Talon boss Antonio and bring him in for questioning. After being taunted by Antonio that his capture would be meaningless as his friends would have him released within the week, however, Reyes instead executes Antonio on the spot.

McCree’s immediate reaction shows he clearly disapproves of the decision, and while Genji doesn’t denounce Reyes outright, the tone of his own debriefing suggests he too isn’t happy with Reyes’ actions.

Blizzard has now released Moira’s debrief statement, however, which shows that she stands by Reyes, praising his command of the mission.

While it’s a minor detail, Moira’s support for Reyes potentially ties into the fan theory that Moira might in fact have been pulling the strings to some degree, helping to orchestrate this very outcome. Moira’s later connection to Talon is implied in her character bio, but fans have built a fairly credible theory that she was already working for them at this time.

Given that the Retribution mission ultimately resulted in Blackwatch being revealed to the world, initiated the downfall of Overwatch itself and pushed Reyes one step closer to becoming Talon agent Reaper, Moira’s continued support for Reyes does perhaps take on a slightly sinister element.

During the spookiest time of the year, Overwatch’s fans have discovered a cute, quaint easter egg in the game’s Chateau Guillard map, which has enjoyed a Halloween makeover.

Overwatch’s developers over at Blizzard do not take October’s biggest holiday for granted, as they celebrate the costume and candy festivities each year with reworked maps and new cosmetics.

This year, players have taken to exploring the Halloween version of Chateau Guillard, and are appreciating the various adjustments.

Now set under moonlight, the extensive French chateau most popularly known for deathmatch custom games is also becoming known for spooky Halloween details. Having released in 2018’s event, players are still making discoveries in the version of Chateau Guillard at night.

Normally, people get distracted by the fog and darkness, or maybe the jack-o’-lanterns and subterranean coffin.

But, taking a trip to the red study room, Redditor ‘YHJ_JYG_Kryptlock’ has discovered a neat little Overwatch easter egg involving candle wicks.

The new Halloween easter egg appears in Chateau Guillard’s red study room.

As they demonstrate in the clip below, if you shoot each wick of the candelabra, the candles will briefly light. It’s nothing crazy, but that doesn’t stop it from being a neat addition to an already detailed revamped map.

To find this easter egg, you’ll first need to find the red study room.

If you’re facing inward to the chateau from the outdoor area with a jump pad and statue, this room will be toward the back right as you enter. If you’re on the opposite end, at the balcony’s health pack, this will be to your left as you enter the chateau.

Ultimately, it’s a very simple easter egg, but a cute one. In a map covered in so much dreary darkness thanks to Halloween, lighting candles is a nice contrast.

Of course, it also makes for a decent party trick. So if you load into custom games, feel free to impress your friends by showing off your detailed map knowledge.
