Some Overwatch heroes don’t even have to try to make a basket in the spawn on some King of the Hill maps, but for others like Brigitte, it can be a little trickier.
Basketballs and hoops are located in the spawn rooms of several King of the Hill maps, and it’s become sort of a minigame for players to try and make baskets before the round begins.
Over the weekend, a post on the Overwatch subreddit claimed that Brigitte was in need of a buff because she was unable to hit the basketball into the net at all, and a good amount of users seemed to believe that was true.
That was, until one Redditor, who actually knew what they were talking about, decided to prove without a doubt that Brigitte was able to ball out.
The clip, posted to Reddit by user spwodev, shows Brigitte line up in front of the basketball and aim a good distance above it, after a well-placed swing, and a few more bounces, the ball falls through the hoop.
Spwodev said the shot didn’t come easy, in fact, it took him a whopping 93 tries to get it just right and make the basket.
The situation is similar to when Overwatch first came out and players were convinced that Reinhardt wasn’t able to make a basket, until one user posted a YouTube video showing it was indeed possible and that players just had to use Firestrike.
It seems to be a pretty exact process to make baskets with Brigitte though, so even though it is technically possible, players probably won’t see it too often before matches.
