Grouping up with your team is a great way to improve your chances during an Overwatch match, unless you have a Genji that can take out the enemy team all by themselves, like in this clip posted to Reddit. 

In the clip posted to Reddit by Sisym, the Genji’s team is attacking on Hollywood and it looks like the opposing team is defending pretty well, until the Dragonblade comes out.

You can practically see the panic in the enemy team as they try to position themselves after hearing Genji’s ultimate, but all they manage to do is line themselves up to be wiped out.

Even though they technically don’t eliminate every player on the other team, thanks to a little help from D.Va, the Genji still takes out five of the six enemy players with his ultimate.

Both teams, Genji included, probably had no idea how this happened given that the defending team seemed to have a good hold on point and there were almost no attacking players around.

Genji players are infamous for not listening to teammates, instead choosing to go off on their own and attempt to get plays like this one.

We don’t know whether or not the Genji’s team ended up winning this match, but at least they didn’t ask for healing during the clip.


How to use OP Torb turret placement in Overwatch Junkenstein’s Revenge

Junkenstein’s Revenge is one of the best ways to earn loot boxes during Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event, and there are a few spots for Torbjorn’s turret you should probably know about.

Halloween in Overwatch means plenty of new skins to unlock, including the Ragdoll Echo skin, which is now available until the event ends on November 3.

The only way to unlock the DPS hero’s new skin though is to win 9 games in any mode. If you stick to quick play and competitive this could easily take one or even two whole days, but if you simply grind them out in Junkenstein’s Revenge, the wins will only take a couple of hours instead.

Even though the seasonal PvE survival mode goes quicker than regular matches, you can definitely still lose if you don’t have the right team comp. This means that at all difficulty levels, Torbjorn is still a must-pick for his turret and it’s constant damage output.

You won’t get far in the harder difficulties of Junkenstein’s without Torb.

As for where to put this powerful, Zomnic-slaying device, there are several options that all work quite well, and are all fairly easy to pull off too – like on top of the overturned cart right down the middle lane. It has a commanding line of sight for the middle and left staircase spawns, and even covers part of the pond on the right side.

The best part of this spot might be the fact that it’s too close for Zombardiers to immediately target it, and it will hold boss aggro for as long as it’s around.

Next, placing the turret on the railing right on top of the left-hand stairs also gives it a great shot at all three spawns instead of just two, and gives you the ability to run up there and repair it when needed.

Finally, if you’re looking for something extra flashy to really impress your teammates, there’s even a way to get the turret up to the wooden platform just above the door where Widow and Ashe usually hang out.

Step by step for best turret placement in JR from Overwatch

Like in the clip above, head up the stairs to the right and go on to the platform they lead to (the place we all used to place the turret). Then head to the ledge closest to the door and aim at the ridge on the tower above the platform, straight up from the bush on the right side.

Another option is to jump from the edge and throw it at the apex of Torb’s leap if you have trouble getting it there while standing still. Toss it up, and your little guy is all set to rain down death on the army of undead charging the gates, and hopefully unlock that Echo skin a little bit quicker.
