A section of the Paris map in Overwatch is leading to unbelievable plays from Ultimate abilities, because it allows you to hide from the enemy.

Whether a glitch of an intended part of the game, you can hide in the bushes on Paris, while still being able to shoot through them.

Since you can shoot through the bushes but can’t see through them, Ultimates that don’t require aiming, like Soldier 76 and McCree, are particularly deadly.

Reddit user Rofflesss demonstrated the power of the spot in the clip shown below.

Shoutout to the guy who showed this Paris trick the other day from r/Overwatch

The enemy team could not see where McCree was, but his ability still tracked through the bushes, allowing for an amazing play of the game.

Blizzard may not have an issue with the bushes in the game, since enemies can see you from the other side – if they know to check the spot, of course.

You can get a nice view of the Eiffel Tower before you Ult the enemy into oblivion.

If you want to try it out for yourself, the bushes are located in the front courtyard of the mansion, where you get a clear view of the Eiffel Tower.

Buzz Lightyear Baptiste concept turned into awesome 3D Overwatch skin

Some awesome new 3D Overwatch skin ideas turn Baptiste into Buzz Lightyear and Soldier: 76 into a toy soldier from Toy Story.

There’s no shortage of new skins in Overwatch right now with the 2020 Halloween Terror event in full swing, but Soldier and Baptiste weren’t included with the heroes who got new cosmetics.

Perhaps sensing that the pair might feel left out, an Irish Overwatch coach and Workshop Mode maestro, Andy ‘andygmb’ Bohan, took the time to render them two fantastic skins straight out of Toy Story.

The idea of Baptiste cast as Buzz Lightyear was actually a skin idea created earlier in 2020, but Andy took it to the next level with a full 3D model that would actually make a decent Baptiste Halloween skin itself.

The support hero actually looks spot-on as the boisterous spaceman, with white and green armor perfectly matching the designs worn by Woody’s partner.

Neither Baptiste nor Buzz can technically fly either, but both manage to get airborne in other ways, either by jumping in the Overwatch hero’s case, or various ways of “falling in style.”

Soldier, appropriately enough, has been turned into one of the green army men every kid had in their toy box growing up. Though, how he’s be able to sprint with a plastic base locking his feet is something we want to see.

These two would fit right in with LEGO Bastion as well.

While Andy created the renders, he said it was a team effort, with artist ‘stealthii‘ helping out with rendering and Overwatch Workshop guru ‘DarwinStreamscontributing his talents as well.

As with any Overwatch crossover that involves a big-name brand like Toy Story, the chances of it actually happening are sadly pretty slim. We did see a LEGO collaboration for Bastion so it might not be entirely out of the question, but we wouldn’t hold our breath.

While Buzz Lightyear Baptiste and Toy Soldier: 76 might just be awesome ideas for now, you can pick up some awesome new skins during the Halloween Terror event while it’s still going on.
