Overwatch fans love coming up with crazy and unique skin ideas for their favorite heroes, and lately Ashe and her sidekick B.O.B. have been particularly popular.

Ashe and B.O.B. were introduced at BlizzCon 2018, became instant fan favorites and have since served as inspiration for plenty of great concept art.

After Reddit user darkdill wrote that they thought Ashe and B.O.B. would make great barista’s, several different users took the idea and ran with it.


Just a few hours after darkdill’s post, user Snoween replied with a still unfinished concept of Ashe and B.O.B. who look like they’re ready for a shift at the local Starbucks.

Even though Snoween’s piece is still unfinished, it’s pretty great, especially B.O.B.’s slightly terrifying smiling face. He really seems to like making coffee.

Just a day later, user PegasusTenma came out with their own take on barista Ashe and B.O.B., with a great hipster flair.


Turns out all Ashe needs is a small change of headwear to turn into the quintessential hipster barista stereotype.

B.O.B. looks like he just got back from the Co-op with a beanie and a full, flowing beard that look so perfect, Blizzard might want to seriously consider giving the pair a “Hipster” or “Barista” Legendary skin, maybe for this year’s Archives or Anniversary event?

Even if the pair don’t get real skins like this anytime soon, the idea of B.O.B. serving up lattes while Ashe shouts at him is too funny not to laugh at.


Cheeky Overwatch trick lets Baby D.Va score environmental kills

Overwatch players looking to find a new lethal tactic with D.Va should look no further than this trick to surprise and tilt enemy teams.

Since 2016, Overwatch fans have taken highly to the hero D.Va, sporting countless cosplays, creating art, buying merchandise, you name it. Part of the reason for this is just how stylish the gamer-turned-mech pilot is.

As it turns out, however, even outside of her pink mech, D.Va can pack a punch and even eliminate any enemy hero in the game if the opportunity presents itself.

Most people know that D.Va’s Call Mech ability does a bit of damage if you use it directly on top of an enemy player, but not everyone realizes it also has knockback capabilities.

D.Va is one of the most popular heroes, in and out of mech.

Boops can be one of the best ways in Overwatch to quickly deal with enemies regardless of their HP. Anyone from Roadhog to even Tracer (especially if limited by cooldowns) can fall victim to a well-timed push off the edge of a map.

As Reddit user ‘eregis’ showed, despite being at a disadvantage against a Soldier 76 who put down his Biotic Field for health restoration, the confrontation ended in their favor thanks to the knockback of Call Mech.

While on Rialto, the D.Va player had the Call Mech ability ready, but waited a bit to activate it. First, the player lured the enemy Soldier 76 to a bit of an unfavorable position on Rialto with his back to the water.

After getting the victim close enough to the ledge, the D.Va used Call Mech and sent 76 off the map and to his demise.

Of course, this trick is a bit of a high-risk play. Baby D.Va is tied with Tracer for the lowest-health hero in the game at only 150. However, unlike Tracer, D.Va does haven’t Blink or Recall to get out of tricky situations, so being able to time the Call Mech perfectly can be tough.

Next time you find yourself as Baby D.Va and an opportunity presents itself, try to see if you can secure frags with this ability. Your opponents will never see it coming.
