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.
