Overwatch streamer TreeboyDave has become the first player to hit level 10,000 – achieving the incredible feat live on Twitch

Ever since the game launched by in 2016, Overwatch players have been in a constant battle to out-do one another in-game and on the worldwide leaderboards. Some play for hours on end to try and rank up in their respective hero type, but never quite reach the lofty heights that they want.

Some, however, have continued to break through the games ‘max’ level cap as they try and show off their dedication with ridiculous numbers. Yet, TreeboyDave has left them all in the dust by becoming the first player to break double digits in the thousand levels territory.

TreeboyDave was able to achieve the incredible feat while playing as Mei.

During his October 19 stream, the British broadcaster started the show at level 9993, with seven to go until he finally broke the insane 10,000 mark. After 10 and a half hours, the streamer was finally on the verge of his target as a game of Payload on Black Forest drew to a close.

As his team picked up the win, the streamer didn’t opt for any wild celebrations, but just hoped that his game didn’t crash so he could hit the milestone. There we go, hold on… level up!” he said. “Nice, ten thousand, there we go. Game hasn’t crashed yet, but yeah, there we go.”

His celebration wasn’t finished there, however, as TreeboyDave noted that it been coming for quite sometime before his viewers decided to show their support and applause for hitting the 10,000 mark.

“Long time coming, never thought I’d get here. Yeah, level ten thousand” added the streamer, before one viewer – mossup – sent him 10,000 Twitch bits, the equivalent of $100/£118. 

While some players might think that the streamer would pack it up there and not bother trying to progress further, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

He was the first Overwatch player to hit the 4,000, 5,000, and now 10,000 marks, so it won’t be too long before he has his target firmly locked on 15,000 and even 20,000.


Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
