Overwatch players discover another Moira bug on Blizzard World

Overwatch players have discovered that Moira is able to send her orbs completely through walls on the Blizzard World map.

Moira’s ability to send out healing or damage orbs is one of the most powerful tools in her kit, but the orbs are supposed to bounce off of walls or any other surface they come into contact with.

This allows Moira to send orbs out to damage the enemy team or heal allies and gives players the ability to somewhat plan out where the projectiles will go, most of the time, that is.

In the gif, posted to Reddit by user LonelyAtTop, Moira shoots her orbs at the base of a wall near the first chokepoint, and the orbs fly right on through like there’s nothing there. They even manage to recreate the bug multiple times on different areas of the map.

The bug seems similar to one discovered by players on Busan, just after the map came out, that also sees Moira’s orbs fly through what should be solid walls.

Moira can throw her orbs under/through walls on Blizzard World. I was wondering if this is a bug? from r/Overwatch

Just like when the Busan bug was noticed, players suggested that this has to do with the way the game engine processes Moira’s abilities, along with the way it renders walls and other structures, causing the projectiles to pass through at either the top or bottom of the wall.

Blizzard hasn’t come out to address the bugs or provide any solution to the issue, so it looks like phantom orbs are just something players will have to get used to.

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
