Overwatch players should avoid bizarre bug spot on Château Guillard

Overwatch fans have discovered a strange bug on Château Guillard, where an area of the map causes players to get stuck before spitting them out.

Like any other game, Overwatch has seen its fair share of bugs and usually, they are fairly minor. However, one glitch has been discovered on the Deathmatch map Château Guillard which has left players scratching their heads.

A certain spot on the map seems to cause players to get stuck, before being launched out of the area after a few seconds.

Overwatch is Blizzard’s take on the team-based shooter genre.

Reddit user MaximillianValentine shared his findings with a short video clip displaying the bug, as he walked into a bush on the outside portion of the map next to the lake and got stuck. After a few seconds of attempting to move, he was suddenly spat out of the area.

Afterward another player ran in and faced a similar fate. It’s unknown what causes the bug, although one user claimed that there are a few similar spots around the map, causing it to be a surprisingly sticky death trap.

The map itself is not new as it was released in 2018 and this glitch is just surfacing, so it is possible that a recent change caused some issues.

However, this isn’t the most impactful bug, but it can be annoying as it will cause you to get stuck and become a sitting duck. If you’re thinking of doing some Deathmatch on Château Guillard, you’ll need to avoid the shrubbery and perhaps even some of the more tight looking corners.

Blizzard have not yet commented on the glitch, although, considering how annoying this can be, fans will be hoping they will fix it sooner rather than later.

A new perch where Overwatch players can hang out has been discovered on Lijiang Tower’s Night Market stage, and it’s somewhere the enemy team will never think to look.

There are plenty of out the way and unexpected spots you can post up on in Overwatch, and the stages of Lijiang Tower contain a good number of them.

With plenty of roofs, walkways, nooks, and crannies, there are plenty of places to lay in wait for unsuspecting enemies, but this one discovered by Reddit user InfamousHandy on a whole other level.

In the area just outside the spawn room, there’s a building to the right (or left depending on which side you’re on) that’s covered in dark awnings. As you can see, with an ability like Reaper’s Shadowstep it’s actually possible to get up there and chill as long as you like.

If you can get up to this spot on the enemy side with your ult without being seen or destroyed, you have a chance to drop down and score some eliminations while the other team is still regrouping.

It’s not just Reaper who can reach it either, Echo, Pharah, and Lucio also can on their own, and any hero can as well with the help of Symmetra’s Teleporter. Just imagine what it would be like to get a Bastion up there.

The only downside is that to have any chance in a regular match of getting kills with this, you will most likely have to make your way to the enemy side of the map, which can be a challenge all on its own sometimes.

Side corridors are your friend for sneaking around on Night Market, shown here, ironically, during the day.

To increase your chances of making it across undetected, we’d suggest using the side corridors, if you lack a movement ability that lets you avoid the ground altogether, like Lucio.

With the Lunar New Year event coming right up after Winter Wonderland though, this strat might be worth keeping in your back pocket for those special Capture the Flag modes.
