Overwatch Workshop guru DarwinStreams has made a new mode that allows players to play basketball as Pharah, using Torbjorn as the ball.

We know Pharah enjoys basketball because of her slam dunk highlight intro and spray for the Summer Games event – and, apparently, she likes throwing around Torb even better.

DarwinStreams may have created more Overwatch Workshop modes than anyone else since the feature was released, and his latest creation does not disappoint, either.

Blizzard EntertainmentHonestly, Torb doesn’t seem to mind getting tossed around.

Go to your home Torbjörn

DarwinStreams “Torbjörnball 2K19” mod give Torb actual basketball-like physics that allow him to bounce around.

Pharah, the players in this mode, can pick up Torb with their secondary fire button, charge up the shot with the primary fire button and releasing to make the shot.

It’s finally possible to slam dunk with Pharah and Torbjörn acting as the ball is way more hilarious than a plain orb would be.

For players who want to try out Torbjörnball 2K19, the current code is 4QGEH.

There are a few more steps required than just entering the code, but Darwin put together a helpful video to show players how to set the game up, as well as to preview what’s coming next in a future update.

What other new Overwatch content is there?

Other than the Workshop, Overwatch also released the Replay feature to the PTR recently, which allows players to go back and watch their previous games from almost any angle and any speed.

It’s a feature that’s been requested since it was first rolled out for the Overwatch World Cup in 2018, but according to Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan, there’s even more “major” content on the way this summer.

We know Hero 31 will be coming out sometime this summer, but as far as any other major updates, it will be interesting to see what Blizzard comes up with.


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.
