Overwatch’s Arcade has a couple different modes it switches between daily, but some players have complained there isn’t enough variety to stay engaging and now one Reddit user has come up with an idea for a new arcade mode that would give each team locked in heroes to play.

The idea, posted to Reddit by user tacomark69, would be similar to mystery heroes, except each team’s composition stays the same the entire match and is mirrored by the enemy team composition.

So, for example, each team would be given one healer and one tank, and at the start of the match everyone on the team is given a random hero, teams are able to switch heroes between themselves, but not choose heroes outside of what is available to their team.

Ideally, this would mean that the mode would consist of two evenly-balanced teams battling it out instead of the often one-sided team fights players have come to expect in modes like Mystery Heroes and Total Mayhem.

With the Halloween Terror Event going on, Junkenstien’s Revenge regular and endless modes are both in the arcade, but only for a limited time until the end of the event.

With BlizzCon coming up at the beginning of November, there’s sure to be plenty of new Overwatch content headed our way, but it’s pretty unknown whether or not any new arcade modes will be announced.


The idea is an interesting one, but it has a long way to go before making it into the actual game, but at this point players would probably be happy to see anything new offered in the arcade.
