One of the best parts of the Summer Games event is all the beach skins that who has already spawned countless fan tributes.

Roadhog does have some island skins, but they’re not really appropriate for a day on the beach, which is why artist Lionelthelion decided to give Roadhog a skin that you’ll either love or lose sleep over.

Blizzard EntertainmentSummer Games means it’s time to head to the beach.

Roadhog, get out of Widow’s closet

In the spirit of great Overwatch mashups, Lionel decided to bring Widowmakers summer look to Roadhog and the results are both fantastic and slightly disturbing at the same time.

Widowmaker’s Cote D’azur skin is loved by fans and for some reason Roadhog has decided that it would be the perfect look for him as well.

BlizzardCote D’azur is one of Widow’s most popular skins.

Roadhog is definitely bursting the seams of this outfit, so hopefully Widowmaker has a spare or two – because you definitely don’t want those back after he’s through with them.

Torbjorn’s new Summer Games skin proves that every hero deserves to have a day on the beach, but Roadhog may want to reconsider his choice of swimwear.

Or don’t, we’re not here to tell you how to live your life, Mako.

The Summer Games are in full swing

While we’re on the subject, Roadhog isn’t the only hero to get a Summer Games mashup this year. Lionelthelion also decided to try out Torbjorn’s Surf n’ Splash skin on Reinhardt.

Surf n’ Splash Reinhardt is much less nightmare-inducing than Cote D’azur Hog, plus imagine how much fun it would be to smash squishies with a giant squeaky inflatable hammer.

There’s still time left in Overwatch’s Summer Games for Lionelthelion to make another great beach skin mashup, if they want, so every hero can have their day in the sun.


Incredible Overwatch custom game lets you drive a ‘Lamborghini’

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Overwatch gameplay
Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
