Overwatch streamer Emongg forced to hilariously communicate for silent team-mates

Overwatch streamer Jeff ‘Emongg’ Anderson had to step up his communication after his team-mates were unresponsive to his attempts to co-ordinate them.

Known for his upbeat attitude, Emongg is very much a model player in Overwatch – positive, communicative, and often willing to give up his primary heroes to fill when needed.

One such game occurred on Oasis, during which Emongg ended up playing Lúcio for his team – a hero he’s quite unfamiliar with as primarily a flex tank player.

Though not as confident in his play with the support hero, Emongg nevertheless did his best to help his team succeed, calling out his own moves and targets for the team. Unfortunately, the rest of the squad didn’t seem as interested in communicating their play.

After realizing his team weren’t going to be contributing themselves, Emongg took it upon himself to communicate on their behalf, offering multiple sides of the conversation as he attempted to co-ordinate a good fight.

Emongg’s characterization of his team-mates eventually went a little beyond merely calling out on their behalf, however. One praised Emongg’s skills, another mentioned their upcoming montage,  and the back-and-forth culminated in an imagined rant from the Tracer player, who seemed to take issue with Emongg’s positivity.

“Shut the fuck up you piece of shit! I hate your positivity, you know you’re a fucking piece of shit, you just fake it I guarantee it, you get off stream and just punch walls!”


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.
