Popular Overwatch Workshop mode which allows players to race as D.Va.

Since the Overwatch Workshop was introduced, it has allowed fans of the game to create their own maps and game modes for other players to experience and enjoy

So far it has been quite popular among Overwatch players, with many creative modes being added to the workshop including a Quake inspired game mode.

BlizzardD.Va’s Mech boosters ability makes her an easy choice to be used for Overwatch racing modes.

Seagull is one of Overwatch’s most popular players, who has competed at a professional level and has also appears to be enjoying some of the modes that the Workshop has to offer.

The former Dallas Fuel player tried out a new workshop mode while streaming, which allows players to race around the map as D.Va using her boosters ability continually while in the air.

This new racing mode pits players against each other to make it through all of the checkpoints the quickest and it seems to have won Seagull over, as he says, “This game mode is so cool,” during his first attempt on stream.

The movement in the racing mode can be difficult to master, however, as Seagull found out for himself after getting confused where he was after going too fast, “Im going too fast for my own good, chat.”

Not long after the Overwatch Workshop’s release there seems to be quite a variety of hilarious modes for fans of the game to test out for themselves. 

It is quite likely that we will see even more interesting modes for players to experience coming out of the Overwatch Workshop in future.

Creepy Overwatch skin idea would be D.Va’s scariest cosmetic yet

An Overwatch fan has come up with a new skin for D.Va that would actually make her MEKA into a nightmare-inducing monster straight out of a fairy tale.

D.Va is, rightly so, one of the most popular heroes in Overwatch, and could be considered the face of the franchise, if Tracer hadn’t already locked that spot up.

Even though she just got two new skins for the 2020 All-Stars and Halloween Terror events, this obviously wasn’t enough for cosmetic-starved D.Va fans.

To keep things moving right along, artist Jouste has come up with a cosmetic based on Baba Yaga, a witch from Slavic folklore who lives in a hut that walks around on chicken legs.

Baba Yaga hut“Mom, can you come pick us up now? The cabin is walking around.”

As you would expect, in lieu of a cabin in the woods, D.Va only has her Mech, and chicken legs actually look extremely natural on it, since they both bend the same way.

Similar to her Halloween skin, it’s also become a house as well, but instead of a spooky haunted Korean temple, it looks more like the residence of an evil babushka, complete with a beak coming out of the front door.

Hana herself is sporting your classic pointed witchy hat with twigs, feathers, and frizzled hair to really sell the whole “living alone in the middle of nowhere” look.

Finally, even her Bunny Blaster sidearm has been made over, and now sports an adorable little frog holding on to the bottom who has a great front-row seat to watch D.Va frag out.

Imagine just walking through Eichenwalde forest and suddenly a chicken-legged MEKA bursts out of the trees.

We don’t know which heroes will be getting Winter Wonderland skins for the next Overwatch seasonal event up on the calendar, but we wouldn’t mind it at all if Blizzard continued to bribe us all by giving D.Va another new skin to try and unlock.

Winter Wonderland usually gets going around the first or second week of December, but stick with Dexerto to find out the exact dates as soon as they’re announced.
