Certain Overwatch skins come packed with special voice lines that replace the existing lines for certain abilities, ultimates and interactions. However, Witch Mercy for the Halloween Terror event has several built-in quips that are being unused.

The Witch Mercy skin quickly became a fan favorite when the Halloween event first debuted in 2016. Since then, there have been plenty of skins added throughout the years, but Mercy’s Witch costume remains one of the most popular.

Amusingly, the skin (partly because of Mercy’s role in the PvE event Junkenstein’s Revenge) comes equipped with some lines that have remained unused, even though other skins make use of their extra features.

As demonstrated by Overwatch community member Naeri, Witch Mercy has unique lines when damage boosting or healing teammates, resurrecting fallen allies, and even scoring kills.

The Overwatch wiki page documents the changes and how they are applied.

When damage boosting or healing, Mercy will say: “Go my servant, destroy them,” “You amuse me,” “Serve me,” and “That poor, lost soul.”

Next, while performing a resurrection, she says either: “A dark power calls you forth” or “Those enchanted can never die!”

Amusingly, when scoring a final blow, Witch Mercy will laugh hysterically. This would be great to see in the game, as it would be bound to get into the heads of enemies who just got eliminated by a healer. She also uses “You think you can oppose me?” as a final blow line.

Many Overwatch fans seriously want to see these lines used with the skin. Streamer ‘TheKristenRae’ replied to the video demanding that Blizzard “put them in the f**king game.”

“They really need to put these into game,” chimed in another user.

“I need that evil laugh of Witch Mercy,” yet another remarked.

Hopefully, Blizzard decides to give the fans what they want in a future update as Halloween Terror 2020 begins on October 13.

Elon Musk pleads Overwatch to buff Torbjorn’s turrets

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.

Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.

However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.

“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.

Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
