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.


Former Overwatch pro Ryuhejong suspended from Gen.G following Twitch drama

Former Overwatch League star Jehong ‘Ryujehong’ Ryu has been suspended from the Gen.G organization after reportedly making sexist comments on stream.

Widely regarded as one of the best Ana and flex support players around, Ryujehong is a familiar name to any Overwatch esports fan. He was one of the most popular players in OWL before stepping away from the competitive scene after the Vancouver Titans nuked their roster back in May 2020.

On January 11, 2021, Gen.G announced that RJH would be joining their org as a content creator, which makes sense, as he was a figurehead for the org’s Seoul Dynasty squad during the League’s first two seasons.

Following what was a very short honeymoon period, the Korean-based org has now suspended Ryu for sexist comments he made on stream that quickly caught the attention of social media, as you can see below:

On January 16, Jehong streamed alongside a female streamer named Haegi, and reportedly made a number of sexist comments towards her multiple times, and even called her out for interrupting him, claiming that women shouldn’t interrupt men.

Since the stream happened the VOD has been deleted, but this is the internet, and the comments were quickly translated into English, kicking off the storm of social media backlash.

On January 19, Gen.G’s Chief Operating Officer Arnold Hur announced that the org was suspending Ryujehong “indefinitely” due to his on stream-comments.

“I’m personally very disappointed in the language used during the stream by Jehong. He was wrong, and I find it uncharacteristic of the person I knew who has always been a considerate, kind-hearted teammate,” Hur wrote. “Our belief is that whether you are a player or streamer, anybody with a platform should understand the responsibility of the higher standards that come with it. As such, we have suspended all of Jehong’s team-related activities indefinitely.”

Like Hur mentioned, Jehong did put out an apology of his own after the firestorm started, where he apologized for what he said, and promised to watch how he speaks in the future, but added he won’t be censoring himself either, according to a translation provided by @hannahhycho on Twitter.

“I am trying to move my streams towards the streamer Ryujehong. I know there are many people who used to watch my old streams who are struggling to adjust to the chat and are confused by the fact I will be using ‘streamer memes’ but I hope you can understand,” RJH wrote, according to the translation. “From now on, I will listen to feedback for my streams and chat to develop them further… I saw some messages from people who aren’t my fans and I want to tell them to stop fanning the flames.”

Just in case there weren’t enough wrinkles to this story, Haegi, the female streamer who was broadcasting with Ryujehong when the incident took place, has come out and defended him according to translations by Reddit user Great-Reno, saying they were bantering back and forth and what happened wasn’t what it seemed.

“Why RJH gets all the blame when I made sexist jokes with him either? This is a bit undeserved,” Haegi said in a YouTube video posted after the outrage began, according to the translation. “I’m cool with it. Why does it matter when the person involved with the matter feels okay? I don’t see why people get offended by this. Live in comfort please.”

Opinion from the female streamer that RJH was with from Competitiveoverwatch

Now, even if it just was some friendly banter back and forth, the kind of language Ryujehong apparently used just doesn’t fly when you’re signed to a major esports org like Gen.G, and is also a huge disappointment to the greater Overwatch community who saw him as a role model, and just a genuine, stand-up dude.

It remains to be seen when or if RJH will return from his suspension to being an active member of Gen.G.
