Getting the upper hand over your opponents to start an Overwatch match is crucial, and now one player has discovered a spot on BlizzardWorld that allows Widowmaker players to do exactly that.

With her Grapple Hook ability, Widow can reach spots a lot of other less-mobile heroes can, allowing her to escape trouble or find unique firing positions.

Some of the spots she can reach can make her even more annoying to deal with for defenders, especially when there’s plenty of distance between Widow and her prey.

The spot, posted to /r/Competitiveoverwatch by user AthisX, is located on top of an invisible wall just outside of the first attacking spawn on BlizzardWorld.

To get there, players need to aim their grapple right at the chimney of the building the first spawn is located in.

Players will then fly up, and land on an invisible wall that gives a great vantage point over the first choke point, which can be a major stall point for attacking teams.

This spot could be great for Widowmaker to cover her team through the first choke, and gives Widow players a spot that enemies can’t easily reach.

There’s always the chance an enemy sniper could get a lucky shot off, but the location of this spot right outside of spawn makes it easy to get back to when eliminated.

This spot is on an invisible wall, so it could be patched out in the future, but for now, it’s a good spot for Widowmaker, or even Pharah, in a pinch.

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
