Overwatch is already a difficult game as it is, and things are even harder with one hand, but you wouldn’t be able to tell based on this play.

Some of the most diehard Overwatch players can’t even crack the Platinum rank, but this Twitch streamer makes it look like it’s the easiest thing in the world.

The streamer, who goes by TheOneHandOnly, explains he’s a former professional gamer which definitely makes things a little easier, even if you’re playing with just a single hand.

In his first game ever using Reaper, the popular DPS from Overwatch, he expertly cleared off the point like he’s been playing for years.

He jumps onto the point and unleashed his Ultimate, eliminating three players in the process, before he then turned his sights to the remaining straggler, and wiped away the entire attacking team without even breaking a sweat.

In case you had any doubts, he streams with a camera looking at how he uses the controller so you know it’s real.

TheOneHandOnly says he plays with just one hand due to a disability on his right arm from birth. As seen in his clip, he can still get use out of his arm, and it looks like he’s still able to hang with some of the best players out there.

He’s able to do this using a controller on PC, which means he already has a disadvantage there, but it doesn’t look like it’s affecting him all that much given that he was able to still reach Platinum.

Reaper certainly has a high learning curve as he relies a lot on movement and accuracy if you want to be effective with him, which makes someone dominating with him using just one hand a lot more impressive.

No matter which way you slice it, it’s pretty amazing to see someone dominating the game like this using just a single hand – on a controller no less.


Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
