incredible Workshop creations.

However, as it is basically a rotating base for the testing of yet-to-be-released or even fully fleshed out items – things can and do go wrong.


Blizzard EntertainmentHavana’s Payload version has joined the PTR for testing ahead of release.

Reddit user Owlero made a post to the Overwatch subreddit, showing how Havana has become broken in the PTR. Owlero had been playing as Wrecking Ball on Payload by themselves to show off the error.

As the player stood on top of the moving truck, they moved towards one of the doors that takes the game back to the outside of the map. However, instead of the door being opened on their arrival – it was already open and there was no shutter to be found.


Instead, Wrecking Ball got stuck on the payload before passing through the door – showing that the roof may need lifting ever so slightly. In another twist, the actual shutter that should be in front of the door appeared from the sky, slowly dropping its way into the ground – absolutely nowhere near where it should have been.

Another Redditor, Apexe, tried to uncover the bug for themselves in a bid to see if it was a one-off thing or a wider error.

As it unfolded for Owlero, the door wasn’t properly lined up with where it should have been and because of that, the payload truck got stuck when trying to move to the outside portion of the map.


It remains to be seen if Blizzard has a fix for this new issue, considering there was no mention of a change to Havana in the recent PTR patch notes.

However, considering it is in the PTR, it shouldn’t be too long before they pick up on the problem and look to rectify it. After all, that is what testing is for.


Overwatch fans want to honor player who died saving woman from attacker

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.


According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
