Overwatch streamer Emongg found himself being questioned by a suspicious account while streaming the game.-

During a recent stream, Emongg encountered a “queue sniper” – someone who was watching his stream in order to know when to join the queue in an attempt to get into a match with him.

Streamers usually don’t like people who “stream snipe” – either as in this case to get into a game with them, or simply because they happened to have ended up in a game with the streamer by coincidence. It often means the streamer will be particularly targeted during the match, making for a more difficult experience.

In this case, however, the sniper in question simply wanted to get into a game with Emongg in order to land a joke, for which he’d even set up an account with a specific name.

In November 2018, a bizarre movement began to report premium Snapchat creators to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for making money from adult content that wasn’t being reported to the tax service. The movement even generated its own hashtag – “ThotAudit”.

The stream sniper, whose account name was “IRS”, stated he had joined Emongg’s game simply to ask whether or not he had a premium Snapchat – which Emongg declined to comment on – before leaving.

While stream snipers can usually be considered one of the potential perils of playing games as a popular broadcaster, in this instance it resulted in an extra moment of harmless entertainment– for Emongg’s fans.

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
