Overwatch player gets trapped by frustrating Hanamura glitch

One Blizzard recently announced fixes aimed at getting rid of an exploit that allows Torbjorn’s turrets to shoot through walls on certain maps.

Now, Reddit user ph7zoonit has posted a video that shows it’s possible to get stuck in a ceiling on Hanamura with no way out.

Blizzard EntertainmentHanamura seems to be eating players.

A Tracer-sized hole, at least

While defending Hanamura’s first point as Tracer, ph7zoonit gets backed into the room with a small healthpack just off of the point, and clips through the ceiling after the enemy Mei deploys an Ice Wall right underneath them.

In the room, they’re unable to do anything other then try and get out and not even Tracer’s Recall seems to be able to get her out.

To make things worse, they get stuck just as the enemy team takes the first point, essentially making it a five on six matchup for the second point.

A hero like Pharah would be able to eliminate themselves and be able to respawn, but so far we don’t know whether any other hero can get stuck up there, or if Tracer is just the right size to clip through.

Is there a fix coming soon?

Like we mentioned earlier, Blizzard released a patch last week that fixed a bug that allowed Torbjorn’s turret to shoot through walls, but this is the first we’ve seen of this particular glitch.

We don’t know yet if this is a repeatable glitch, or if it was just a weird, one time thing, but it’s definitely something you don’t want to happen during a Competitive match.

With the Anniversary event coming to an end on June 10, we could very well see more Overwatch updates coming soon.


Incredible Overwatch custom game lets you drive a ‘Lamborghini’

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
