Overwatch has officially revealed one of the upcoming 2020 Anniversary Event skins in the form of Little Red Ashe.

On May 14, the Overwatch Twitter account posted a video showing off the skin, which pays homage to the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood.

“B.O.B… What big teeth you have!” the post reads and shows off Ashe’s giant Omnic butler as a wolf dressed as a grandmother.

Ashe looks amazing as Little Red Riding Hood.

In the fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood travels through a forest to get to her grandmother’s house, but when she gets there, a wolf had eaten the granny and put her clothes on as a disguise that screams “Stealth 100.”

Eventually, Little Red Riding Hood is rescued by a woodsman who cuts the wolf open with an axe to free the grandma, proving that rabid creatures in fantasy books have poor digestive systems and don’t chew their food.

In this case, however, Ashe seems to be the one wielding an axe as her primary weapon, The Viper, has a unique axe-like attachment – a nice little attention to detail.

The skin itself for Ashe certainly earns the rank of “Legendary” with her white hair covered by the red cloak.

BOB, meanwhile has undergone a neat transformation into a wolf while still maintaining some of his metal charm that fans of his have come to appreciate.

What a team.

His attire is a blue top, nightcap and reading glasses that make the whole outfit extremely unique.

Little Red Ashe was just one of three skins previously leaked by Blizzard in a forum post. Still to come are Dragoon Mercy, Masquerade Reaper, and special challenge skins like Carbon Fiber Sigma.

The Overwatch Anniversary Event kicks off May 19 and will run until June 9, giving players plenty of time to unlock the special Ashe skin amongst others.

Genius Overwatch trick lets Mercy escape fights on Numbani

Mercy has a new path to safety on Numbani thanks to an extremely clever Overwatch trick that lets her glide away from intense teamfights.

If you’re ever stuck in a pickle as Mercy, you can always fall back on her Guardian Angel ability to get you out of trouble. Moving from one spot to another in the blink of an eye can easily keep you alive when things are looking grim.

Angelic Descent also comes in handy, enabling Mercy as one of the more mobile Supports in the game. Her kit might be limited in terms of offensive output. However, she can move through the air like no other hero. It turns out her movement abilities might even be more useful than you’d first think.

A genius new spot on the first point of Numbani can have you gliding to safety in no time at all. Here’s what you need to know so you can execute it for yourself.

Directly behind the Payload is where you want to line up for this unique trick.

If you’re positioned towards the back of the first capture point, you might be familiar with the often-deadly drop. It can be all too easy to get booped and fall to your death in this position. Whether it’s a Lucio flying overhead or a Wrecking Ball crashing into your team, you’ve likely experienced some pain in this location.

However, playing near this spot is worth the risk for this particular reward with Mercy. A simple tree beyond the railing is actually the perfect distance to jump right into. Once wedged between the branches, you can quickly walk forward and navigate up the front of the tree.

While you might think there’s nowhere to go from here, Mercy’s Angelic Descent completely changes the game. With a perfectly timed jump, you can slowly glide around the corner. This lets you rotate all the way behind the first point and land safely next to the street.

There’s a Mega health pack waiting for you upon landing as well. Just in case you get tagged up while making your escape.

It might not come in handy for every team fight, but if things are looking dire, it could be the perfect way to get out with your life.

Not feeding the enemy team is often just as important as building your own Ultimates. So keep this unique trick in mind the next time Numbani appears in rotation. It’s just another next-level tactic for Support mains to have at the ready.
