During a stream on January 31, Overwatch streamer Anthony ‘harbleu’ Ballo showed viewers that even though Zarya lacks any movement abilities, she’s still able to get out of a tough spot.
Harbleu mostly streams, but he recently joined Chicken Contendies who are currently competing in the Overwatch Contenders Trials.
As his team is defending on the second point of Rialto, Harbleu throws out his ultimate and at first it seems like the other team is done for.
After the Lucio fell, the streamer found himself backed onto the stairs in the corner and with the tables turned, it seemed like Harbleu would be the next to die.
In a spur of intuition, Harbleu aims at his feet and uses Zarya’s secondary fire to send him flying over the enemy tanks and into sight of his friendly healers.
With some healing, Harbleu cleans up the enemy team, but it was almost all for nothing because his team was about to get C9’d.
Luckily the C9 is prevented, saving Harbleu’s great play from being tarnished by a back cap.
Zarya isn’t really considered a super mobile hero, but this clip is proof she can pull off some neat stuff with her kit.
For those who want to watch Harbleu and the rest of the Chicken Contendies, tune in to the Contenders Trials on Twitch on Saturday, February 2 at 9 AM PST.
