Overwatch player dramatically betrays their own teammate

This Overwatch player found out the hard way just how chaotic Overwatch fights can be when they sent a Reinhardt flying towards their backline.

During the first fight for the point on Ilios Well, the Junkrat player is creating space and trying to land a few grenades when they spot a Reinhardt and try to place a mine to knock him off course or into the well.


Except, as soon as the mine is activated, the Reinhardt begins his charge and gets sent flying who knows where behind the point.

The Junkrat’s allied Widowmaker probably has a pretty good idea, because a second after liftoff it shows she got crushed by the improvised airborne battering ram.


You really can’t blame the player, they had all the right intentions with the mine, sometimes those freak plays Overwatch is infamous for just happen.

There’s sure to be some great, hopefully planned, Reinhardt plays this weekend at the Overwatch World Cup, which starts at 2:15 pm PT Friday on Twitch.


There could even be some Reinhardts who get eliminations after someone sends them perfectly flying into the air while charging, we’ll just have to see.


Insane Overwatch Wrecking Ball Tracer combo obliterates enemy teams

Overwatch players looking to find some new synergy between two unlikely heroes should look no further than a lethal combination with Tracer and Wrecking Ball.

Wrecking Ball can be one of the most annoying heroes in the game to deal with, constantly booping people away while remaining in his ball form.


Meanwhile, Tracer can do very much of the same, buzzing in the backline, harassing supports and just being a general menace to deal with thanks to her Blinks, Recall and small hit box.

Together, the threat of Tracer and Wrecking Ball can really dominate uncoordinated teams, but with a little coordination on their own part, the two can destroy entire groups with a neat ultimate attack.

Wrecking Ball can be a major threat in the back line.

As demonstrated by Twitch streamer ‘rene_ow,’ the Masters ranked Hammond player spotted a pack of enemies all grouped up on the Busan map.

After grappling to go in for a major boop on the four, the player’s allied Tracer blinked in and stuck her Pulse Bomb on the McCree.

With the McCree booped into the rest of the adversaries, the result ended up being a massive quad kill, with both supports and DPS heroes on the enemy team eliminated swiftly.


The insane combo was well-received by the team, which celebrated the quad kill. “That was nuts!” they cried with glee.

Perhaps the best part of this combo is that you don’t need the stick to connect. In theory, you can have Wrecking Ball knock the enemies towards Tracer or her Pulse Bomb radius to secure the frags.

This type of team play may take some serious effort to get right, but if you have a partner you synergize well with, it’s always possible that this combination can help you win Overwatch games, and rank up in style.
