Overwatch player thinks playing Brigitte is so easy a child could do it

Brigitte is one of the most talked about heroes in Overwatch right now, players either hate her or they love her, and one player on streamer Jeff ‘emongg’ Anderson’s team during an Overwatch match had a few things to say about the hero.

Brigitte has attracted so much controversy because of the major role she plays in the current metagame, her ability to deal damage while simultaneously healing teammates is invaluable.

But, many players accuse the hero of being OP, and easy to gain wins with, so easy, that one of emongg’s teammate’s said their 2-year-old could probably do it.

After emongg asks his teammate, Fixer, if his kid plays any games, his teammate replies “He’s two-years-old, but he could probably be a Brig player.”

After throwing some shade, Fixer casually asks if his team wants Lucio or Zen as emongg cracks up at his comments.

There have been a lot of insults thrown the way of Brigitte players recently, but saying a toddler could probably do just fine on her in ladder has to hurt.

Who knows? If he gets an early enough start, maybe one day we’ll see Fixer’s son in the Overwatch League playing Brigitte.

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.
