A very thorough Overwatch player has shared one of the most extensive guides for long-range Ana grenade shots ever assembled.

Ana’s Biotic Grenade heals allies and damages enemies within its area of effect, while also preventing enemies from being healed for four seconds. 

In addition to being a highly useful ability, it can also be catapulted over insane distances to catch enemies by surprise.

Overwatch players who enjoy using Ana cherish those longshot plays that cause chaos or get a kill, and now, there’s a guide to help you master them as well.

Blizzard EntertainmentAna players love their Ana grenade trick shots.

A guide for all your Ana grenade needs

Reddit user u/scrudit shared their guide with over 100 Ana grenade launch locations to show players where to stand and aim for maximum distance and accuracy.

“In a nutshell: It’s a PDF with all (relatively easy/reliable) ‘nade spots I could find for every map,” scrudit explained. “For all the maps, there’s an Attack and a Defend side that have numbers in them. Each number represents a place where the ‘nade will land.”

scruditscrudit’s guide is everything an Ana player could ask for.

The guide is available as a PDF that works best when downloaded, and allows players to sort through all of the spots in the list efficiently, instead of page by page.

“When you click the number, you will see the place where you need to stand and where you need to aim in order to hit that specific ‘nade spot,” scrudit said about how the guide worked.

It is interesting to look through the guide to see what kind of crazy shots are actually possible, but it can be used while playing, too.

The guide would probably be best to have on a second screen while you’re playing Ana, or on a tablet/phone if you don’t have two screens or play on a console.

 A new Overwatch event on the way?

Overwatch is currently in the middle of Mercy’s Recall Challenge, which goes away along with the new Dr. Ziegler Mercy skin on December 2.

As we get close to December, we also draw nearer and nearer to the Winter Wonderland 2019 event, and all the new stuff that will come with it.

Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan likewise revealed recently that seasonal events will change with Overwatch 2, but for now, we’re pretty confident Winter Wonderland will begin near the second week of December this year.


Cheeky Overwatch trick lets Baby D.Va score environmental kills

Overwatch players looking to find a new lethal tactic with D.Va should look no further than this trick to surprise and tilt enemy teams.

Since 2016, Overwatch fans have taken highly to the hero D.Va, sporting countless cosplays, creating art, buying merchandise, you name it. Part of the reason for this is just how stylish the gamer-turned-mech pilot is.

As it turns out, however, even outside of her pink mech, D.Va can pack a punch and even eliminate any enemy hero in the game if the opportunity presents itself.

Most people know that D.Va’s Call Mech ability does a bit of damage if you use it directly on top of an enemy player, but not everyone realizes it also has knockback capabilities.

D.Va is one of the most popular heroes, in and out of mech.

Boops can be one of the best ways in Overwatch to quickly deal with enemies regardless of their HP. Anyone from Roadhog to even Tracer (especially if limited by cooldowns) can fall victim to a well-timed push off the edge of a map.

As Reddit user ‘eregis’ showed, despite being at a disadvantage against a Soldier 76 who put down his Biotic Field for health restoration, the confrontation ended in their favor thanks to the knockback of Call Mech.

While on Rialto, the D.Va player had the Call Mech ability ready, but waited a bit to activate it. First, the player lured the enemy Soldier 76 to a bit of an unfavorable position on Rialto with his back to the water.

After getting the victim close enough to the ledge, the D.Va used Call Mech and sent 76 off the map and to his demise.

Of course, this trick is a bit of a high-risk play. Baby D.Va is tied with Tracer for the lowest-health hero in the game at only 150. However, unlike Tracer, D.Va does haven’t Blink or Recall to get out of tricky situations, so being able to time the Call Mech perfectly can be tough.

Next time you find yourself as Baby D.Va and an opportunity presents itself, try to see if you can secure frags with this ability. Your opponents will never see it coming.
