Team Fortress 2 characters face off against Overwatch heroes in a new YouTube video to determine which game will reign supreme once and for all.

Overwatch may have come out nearly a decade after Team Fortress 2, but the two communities still share a healthy sense of competition as the games are fairly similar.

In a new YouTube video by The Winglet Overwatch heroes take on the iconic classes of Team Fortress 2 to see which team-based hero shooter would come out on top.

Darkness-RingoThe debate over which game is better has been going on basically since Overwatch came out.

Battle of the Brands

The video is the second Overwatch vs. Team Fortress 2 video from The Winglet and starts off with the heroes getting ready in spawn. As usual, Symmetra takes a little convincing to switch to Mercy.

Things get crazy right out of the gate as the Overwatch team is greeted by a group of spies being ridiculous outside of spawn.

Some Overwatch players will probably be happy with what happens to Mei at the hands of Pyro, but one of the best parts of the video has to be the epic battle between Medic’s bird sidekick Archimedes and Bastion’s feathered friend Ganymede.

Even B.O.B. makes an appearance to face off against the Heavy that seems to be giving Overwatch a very hard time all throughout the video.

Like most debates about which game is “better” the video ends without a clear winner being decided, but it does give TF2’s Engineer a Play of the Game that Torbjörn would be proud of.

Jjonak’s MVP Zenyatta skin is coming soon

Zenyatta may have gotten shut down by Spy during the battle (he’s a robot, after all) but he is getting a fancy new skin for Jjonak’s 2018 MVP award.

The new Zenyatta skin will be available from June 27 to July 14, so Zen mains should be sure they’ll have enough Overwatch League Tokens to unlock it before it’s gone.

Overwatch players looking to find some new synergy between two unlikely heroes should look no further than a lethal combination with Tracer and Wrecking Ball.

Wrecking Ball can be one of the most annoying heroes in the game to deal with, constantly booping people away while remaining in his ball form.

Meanwhile, Tracer can do very much of the same, buzzing in the backline, harassing supports and just being a general menace to deal with thanks to her Blinks, Recall and small hit box.

Together, the threat of Tracer and Wrecking Ball can really dominate uncoordinated teams, but with a little coordination on their own part, the two can destroy entire groups with a neat ultimate attack.

Wrecking Ball can be a major threat in the back line.

As demonstrated by Twitch streamer ‘rene_ow,’ the Masters ranked Hammond player spotted a pack of enemies all grouped up on the Busan map.

After grappling to go in for a major boop on the four, the player’s allied Tracer blinked in and stuck her Pulse Bomb on the McCree.

With the McCree booped into the rest of the adversaries, the result ended up being a massive quad kill, with both supports and DPS heroes on the enemy team eliminated swiftly.

The insane combo was well-received by the team, which celebrated the quad kill. “That was nuts!” they cried with glee.

Perhaps the best part of this combo is that you don’t need the stick to connect. In theory, you can have Wrecking Ball knock the enemies towards Tracer or her Pulse Bomb radius to secure the frags.

This type of team play may take some serious effort to get right, but if you have a partner you synergize well with, it’s always possible that this combination can help you win Overwatch games, and rank up in style.
