Overwatch “Duck Hunt” mode will make you a sharpshooter in no time

A new Overwatch Workshop mode recreates the classic Nintendo game Duck Hunt, and turns it into an entertaining aim trainer at the same time.

Duck Hunt was originally released as a launch title for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) all the way back in 1984, which probably makes it older than most Overwatch players today.

Now, it’s the latest classic to be added to the game, thanks to YouTuber Ch4rLizard Gaming and their Workshop skills.

The trick to Duck Hunt is getting the good light gun, and giving your sibling/friend the inferior one.

For those who haven’t played Duck Hunt, it basically consists of shooting as many ducks as possible as they fly through the air using the light gun that came with the console.

Ch4rLizard’s Workshop mode operates very similarly to the NES title, except instead of the gun, players can choose from either McCree or Ashe.

It’s also not ducks that you’ll be taking aim at this time around, but gracefully floating Mercys and the occasional Wrecking Ball, who plays a clay pigeon shot by Bastion’s tank form.

Everyone’s favorite primate scientist Winston also takes the place of the Duck Hunt Dog to stir up those hidden Mercys so you can pick them off.

Besides being a nice homage to one of the most legendary Nintendo games out there, it also offers a few different modes of increasing difficulty that can actually work as a decent Ashe and McCree aim trainer.

There’s the first level which only has one duck (Mercy) at a time float across the sky, but you can up the difficulty to have two Mercys at a time and, as we mentioned earlier, another mode that throws the random Wrecking Ball out there as well.

For those interested in trying out the Duck Hunt Workshop mode, the code is: 215K5.

Hammond also gets in on the Duck Hunt fun as well.

This Workshop mode also makes us realize that Mercy desperately needs a skin that makes her look like a duck, if for no other reason than to make Overwatch Duck Hunt even better.

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.
