Twitch streamer Wanted is easily one of the best McCree players in Overwatch and showcased exactly why in an incredible High Noon clip uploaded on September 25.

In a match on Junkertown, the Peacekeeper-wielding Cowboy and his team were closing in on capturing the third point when an enemy Moira started using Coalescence in an attempt to keep the attackers at bay.

Wanted, probably with the intent to just zone the defenders out, activated his Dead Eye ultimate, with McCree’s signature “It’s high noon” quote signaling that the enemy team should run for cover. 

Blizzard EntertainmentIt’s time to duel.

However, Wanted was then given a Nano Boost by his Ana, something the community has classified as “Electric Cowboy”. Then the enemy Orisa made a fatal error by Halting Wanted into the air giving him a perfect angle to kill four members of the opposing team including the ulting Moira.

“Oh my God!” one of Wanted’s teammates cried in disbelief. “Electric Cowboy!” another chimed. 

The craziness didn’t end there though. While Wanted did pick off four targets, the enemy McCree was still alive and popped his Dead Eye soon thereafter. While the Twitch star tried to sneak around the side and headshot his opposite, he was too late and the other McCree scored four kills of his own.

Despite evening the odds, the rest of Wanted’s team were able to finish him off and with the payload so close to the finish line, they completed Junkertown with all three points.

Dead Eye is often considered one of the worst ultimates in the game. In a lot of instances, pros will use it as a reload mechanic rather than a genuine way to score kills.

Additionally, the hero isn’t doing super well in this current meta with multiple barriers, but a new PTR patch could weaken the meta just enough for McCree to be a bit more viable.

Blizzard EntertainmentMcCree hasn’t been in the best place meta-wise with double barrier being so strong.

For two McCrees to pick up four kills with their ultimates within mere seconds of each other is a crazy feat that has to be seen to be believed.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
