An Overwatch fan has taken the latest released hero Sigma, and mapped him to all the other character’s highlights animations – the results will you give nightmares for days.

Sigma is the latest tank hero to be added to Overwatch, joining the roster on August 13. The 62-year old astrophysicist gained his powers after an experiment went sideways. 

While players are still getting used to him, one Overwatch fan has taken it upon themselves to take Sigma’s character model and map it to all the other characters highlights – it’s true nightmare fuel.

YouTuber user ‘GRZ NGT’ uploaded the compilation video on August 14, and has a channel dedicated to gaming content. Though many of his uploads are similar to the Sigma one, none are quite as jarring.

The video shows Sigma’s character model twisted and contorted, as he’s mapped over other character’s highlight animations. Some of them are hilarious, while others are downright terrifying.

Due to the character’s height, he looks bizarre when mapped to shorter heroes like Torbjorn or D.Va, where his character model is all smashed up. Although taller characters like Winston are not any better, as Sigma is stretched likes wires as he grunts.

Perhaps the scariest remap is when the astrophysicist is transformed into Orisa, as his wiry frame hunches over and his eyeballs are popped out of his head. Similarly, when he turns around as Brigitte, he looks fine at first, but then he smiles, exposing some creepy looking teeth.

Not all the highlights look that bad, and some of them are actually a good match. Sigma actually looks kind of badass when he becomes Hammond’s ball, as he has two large gatling guns for arms.

The astrophysicist also looks right at home as Zarya, as her particle cannon fits his character perfectly.

Overwatch fans never ceases to amaze the community with how creative they can be, even when it’s making nightmare inducing monstrosities such as this.

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 may be cute, but he’s deadly on several Overwatch maps.

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.
