The Overwatch Workshop expert DarwinStreams has come out with another awesome mode that lets players zoom around several different courses as D.Va.

The Workshop has brought a ton of new game modes and other awesome stuff to Overwatch and DarwinStreams has probably made more cool stuff in the new mode then anyone else.

His latest creation is a racing mode for D.Va that allows players to speed around in her Mech on some unique courses.

Blizzard EntertainmentThe new mode should be a hit with D.Va players.

Gotta Go Fast

Darwin’s mode gives D.Va several pre-made courses to race on, like the city below LiJiang Tower and in space above Horizon Lunar Colony.

The city course is extra cool because it gives players an up-close view at an area of Overwatch that they don’t usually get to see.

With cars racing past below and plenty of buildings to dip, duck, dive and dodge around the LiJiang city course almost feels like a completely new game.

Players can also change up the locations of checkpoints to make their own custom maps using DarwinStreams code as well.

For players who want to go fast with D.Va, the code is: BD9WP.

Where’s the new D.va skin?

Overwatch announced that the Anniversary event will begin on Tuesday, May 21 and bring six new Legendary skins, three new Epics and new dance emotes for Ashe, Hammond and Baptiste.

Overwatch has already revelaed D.Va’s new Anniversary skin and it’s definitely one of her best-looking so far.

Overwatch usually previews new skins before the event begins, but with the announcement coming only a few days before the start of Anniversary, they certainly didn’t leave a lot of time for teasers.


Simple Overwatch trick lets any hero reach King’s Row high ground

A surprisingly simple Overwatch trick is making the rounds that lets any hero in the game reach the high ground of the King’s Row attacking spawn.

King’s Row might be one of the original Overwatch maps, but it has definitely stood the test of time and is still one of players’ favorites when it comes up in the queue.

One of the most popular features on the map is the little sniper’s nest platform located at the very top of the first attacking spawn that gives a commanding view of everything up to the capture point.

It seems like only heroes with movement abilities like Pharah, Widow, or D.Va for example could get up there, but there is a way to get any hero in the game up to the position as well.

King's Row Attacking spawnThe sniper’s nest has been there since day one, but not every hero has been able to get up there, until now.

The person we have to thank for this technique is Reddit user jordensmet who somehow discovered that you can use a more mobile character to reach the space, then quickly change to another.

First, they select Baptiste and use his Exo Boots to boost up to the second-highest level, just under the top platform. Once there, they position themselves on top of the scaffolding in front of the main exit and jump again while barely touching the spawn room.

If you pull up the Hero Select menu at the right time, you’ll be able to switch to any hero you like. So if you’ve never had the chance to try out Ana, McCree, or whoever else from on high, now’s your chance.

I found a way to get the highground on the attacking side of King’s row for Ana (or other characters that usually can’t get there). from Overwatch

For instance, if you really want to catch an aggressive enemy team off-guard, why not take Reinhardt for a spin and hit them with a charge from the very top rope. For those wondering, yes, a Rein charge out of the top window will get you all the way to Mondatta’s statue, so make sure your team is ready to push!

One final note to add is that doesn’t necessarily have to be Baptiste that you use for this trick either, Echo and Pharah would both work, and if you’re really fast and in need of a challenge, you can even get it to go with Sombra’s Translocator as long as your timing is absolutely perfect.
