Overwatch players have been discovering all kinds of cool new things they can do with Ashe’s kit since her release to PTR on November 5, and one fan has discovered that B.O.B. can even solo cap the point during a match.

Attacking Point B on Hanamura, the player controlling Ashe is all alone capturing the point, after taking out a pair of threatening Zenyattas, they call in B.O.B. and decide to step off the point.

Instead of not capturing, progress continues to rise on the point even as the player steps off, because B.O.B., it appears, acts as another player and is able to actually capture the point.

The clip proves this is the case because even after the player dies, B.O.B. stays on the point and even manages to end the round by capturing it.

This means that, if you had a full team and called out B.O.B., there could potentially be 7 heroes capturing the point at one time.

So it seems like Overwatch developers were telling the truth when they said B.O.B. is literally a “7th teammate” during the reveal at BlizzCon.

Ashe calls out B.O.B. for her ultimate, and he runs in a straight line until he runs into someone or something to stop him, and streamers have already shown B.O.B. will just keep on running if there’s nothing there.

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
