Overwatch players can get seriously stuck on Horizon’s second point

Former Overwatch League pro Joonas ‘zappis’ Alakurtti discovered a spot on Horizon Lunar Colony’s second point that seems to trap D.Va completely.

Zappis played flex/DPS for the Florida Mayhem before leaving the team at the end of Season One. Since then, he’s played with Finnish Contender’s squad Team Gigantti, who just won Contenders Europe 2018 Season Three on January 11.

In the break from Contenders Zappis has been streaming, and it appears he found a spot where D.Va seems to get completely stuck on Horizon Lunar Colony.

As his team defends Horizon’s second point, Zappis throws a self destruct onto point, then lands in between the tires of the giant moon rover just to the side.

His baby D.Va is stuck, and after calling in mech he’s still not going anywhere. Not even D.Va’s boosters can get him out.

Since the fight is happening on point, Zappis spends a few seconds trapped and basically just watching everything happen, until a nice member of the enemy team destroys his mech and frees him.

It’s not a spot a lot of players seem to get to, but it seems like it’s just big enough to trap D.Va at least, if she lands on it right.

It could trap every hero, for all we know, but so far D.Va is the only one with video evidence of being trapped.

Whether it’s a bug or not, it’s probably a spot players want to avoid getting too close to, especially with D.Va.

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
