June 18 patch that significantly increases his rate of fire and Baptiste’s Amplification Matrix now lasts 10 seconds instead of eight.

Players have discovered since the patch dropped that the two working together make for a pretty deadly combination that some players might not be expecting.

Blizzard EntertainmentMcCree and Baptiste make for a deadly duo after the latest Overwatch update.

The McCree mains are coming

McCree’s rate of fire increase makes him able to put out more damage, which in turn just makes him more dangerous overall, but with the addition of Baptiste he becomes pretty scary.

The Immortality Field finally gives McCree a way to use his Dead Eye and not worry about getting immediately deleted, at least while the field is active.

Baptiste’s Amplification Matrix is also a great combination, which a video posted to Reddit by Biono03 does a great job of demonstrating.

Biono doesn’t even use his ultimate in the clip, he just stands behind his friendly Baptiste’s ultimate and clicks heads, which results in a massacre for the attacking team.

Players might not be used to getting out of the way of a Baptiste ultimate yet, or they might not register McCree for the threat he now poses after the buff, but this video shows we should start thinking twice before going after either – let alone the two put together.

What else was in the June 18 Patch?

Orisa got a quality of life improvement that allows her to deploy her barrier while reloading, which is a nice little present for Orisa players.

Overwatch also brought the new Replay system into the main game and to consoles off of the PTR and players have been taking full advantage by archiving some hilarious moments.

Baptiste’s Reunion Challenge is going on until July 1 as well and players should be sure to win their nine games before then, because they won’t be able to unlock the new skin once it’s gone.

Genius Overwatch trick lets Mercy escape fights on Numbani

Mercy has a new path to safety on Numbani thanks to an extremely clever Overwatch trick that lets her glide away from intense teamfights.

If you’re ever stuck in a pickle as Mercy, you can always fall back on her Guardian Angel ability to get you out of trouble. Moving from one spot to another in the blink of an eye can easily keep you alive when things are looking grim.

Angelic Descent also comes in handy, enabling Mercy as one of the more mobile Supports in the game. Her kit might be limited in terms of offensive output. However, she can move through the air like no other hero. It turns out her movement abilities might even be more useful than you’d first think.

A genius new spot on the first point of Numbani can have you gliding to safety in no time at all. Here’s what you need to know so you can execute it for yourself.

Directly behind the Payload is where you want to line up for this unique trick.

If you’re positioned towards the back of the first capture point, you might be familiar with the often-deadly drop. It can be all too easy to get booped and fall to your death in this position. Whether it’s a Lucio flying overhead or a Wrecking Ball crashing into your team, you’ve likely experienced some pain in this location.

However, playing near this spot is worth the risk for this particular reward with Mercy. A simple tree beyond the railing is actually the perfect distance to jump right into. Once wedged between the branches, you can quickly walk forward and navigate up the front of the tree.

While you might think there’s nowhere to go from here, Mercy’s Angelic Descent completely changes the game. With a perfectly timed jump, you can slowly glide around the corner. This lets you rotate all the way behind the first point and land safely next to the street.

There’s a Mega health pack waiting for you upon landing as well. Just in case you get tagged up while making your escape.

It might not come in handy for every team fight, but if things are looking dire, it could be the perfect way to get out with your life.

Not feeding the enemy team is often just as important as building your own Ultimates. So keep this unique trick in mind the next time Numbani appears in rotation. It’s just another next-level tactic for Support mains to have at the ready.
