Overwatch players discover Winston’s secret stash of bananas on Horizon

Overwatch players have found an Easter Egg on Horizon Lunar Colony that appears to be a secret banana storage space.

Winston grew up on Horizon, so it makes sense that he would have a secret hiding spot to stockpile his favorite snack.


Now Reddit user imprala has rediscovered where the secret stash is located and for players who didn’t know before, it’s in a much more obvious place than you might expect.

“For the last time, no more bananas”

The secret banana stash is located on the second level of the area just before you get to the first point from the attacking spawn.


Winston’s stash is located on the walkway on the other side of the room from the upper airlock, so when you’re looking at the point while coming from the attacking spawn, it’s to your left.

Behind an inconspicuous metal plate that players can open with a simple melee, there’s a secret stash of bananas and other goodies Winston has hidden away.

The metal panel has a small yellow square on it as it’s only identifying mark, but it’s not that tough to find after watching imprala’s video.


Are they really Winston’s bananas?

Players have discovered the hideaway before, and there’s a theory that the stash is actually Hammonds, which would make sense since the hero has a spray of him eating a banana.

That and Horizon came out before Hammond was revealed, so having a ‘secret’ stash of bananas would be some classic Blizzard misdirection.

Speaking of new hero reveals, Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan confirmed in an interview that Hero 31 would be coming out sometime during Summer 2019, but didn’t get any more specific than that.


Insane Overwatch Wrecking Ball Tracer combo obliterates enemy teams

Overwatch players looking to find some new synergy between two unlikely heroes should look no further than a lethal combination with Tracer and Wrecking Ball.

Wrecking Ball can be one of the most annoying heroes in the game to deal with, constantly booping people away while remaining in his ball form.


Meanwhile, Tracer can do very much of the same, buzzing in the backline, harassing supports and just being a general menace to deal with thanks to her Blinks, Recall and small hit box.

Together, the threat of Tracer and Wrecking Ball can really dominate uncoordinated teams, but with a little coordination on their own part, the two can destroy entire groups with a neat ultimate attack.

Wrecking Ball can be a major threat in the back line.

As demonstrated by Twitch streamer ‘rene_ow,’ the Masters ranked Hammond player spotted a pack of enemies all grouped up on the Busan map.

After grappling to go in for a major boop on the four, the player’s allied Tracer blinked in and stuck her Pulse Bomb on the McCree.

With the McCree booped into the rest of the adversaries, the result ended up being a massive quad kill, with both supports and DPS heroes on the enemy team eliminated swiftly.


The insane combo was well-received by the team, which celebrated the quad kill. “That was nuts!” they cried with glee.

Perhaps the best part of this combo is that you don’t need the stick to connect. In theory, you can have Wrecking Ball knock the enemies towards Tracer or her Pulse Bomb radius to secure the frags.

This type of team play may take some serious effort to get right, but if you have a partner you synergize well with, it’s always possible that this combination can help you win Overwatch games, and rank up in style.
