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.

Overwatch’s Wrecking Ball is very much a love or hate hero: tanks love to play him, but every other player hates him. This easy trick will help you dominate as the furry hero on Oasis.

When players see a Wrecking Ball in their game, their either excited that he’s on their team instead of the enemy one or, alternatively, their heart sinks. The iron clad furball can make or break a game, especially in areas where environmental kills are all too easy.

A recent discovery that Tracer and Wrecking Ball can be partnered together to cause chaos with a boop and Pulse Bomb has led to players testing out all different Hammond tricks.

One player, however, has discovered a trick that will make Oasis a nightmare for the enemy team.

Wrecking Ball Oasis trick gives you easy kills

When piloting the armoured death ball, Reddit user XCJRR has found a prime spot to lie in waiting for any unfortunate victims on Oasis.

If a player positions themselves just outside of the enemy spawn on Oasis behind the bright blue sign next to the palm tree, they’re in a prime position to barrel into their opponents and throw them into the highway which forms part of Oasis’ backdrop.

From there, enemies are more than likely to be one-shot by the oncoming traffic, giving you instant kills and a whole lot of pressure on the map.

XCJRR’s timing was literal perfection, as it seems the entire enemy team were just respawning as he launched his attack, giving him an easy triple kill. It’s easy to race around the map as Hammond, so getting there with plenty of time and waiting is the perfect trick to get an easy wipe.

A lot of players will sigh at this news, as its yet another way for Wrecking Ball to truly wreck your evening, but give it a shot and see what happens. Just remember, you didn’t hear it from us.
