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.

Incredible Overwatch custom game lets you drive a ‘Lamborghini’

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
