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.

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.

During the spookiest time of the year, Overwatch’s fans have discovered a cute, quaint easter egg in the game’s Chateau Guillard map, which has enjoyed a Halloween makeover.

Overwatch’s developers over at Blizzard do not take October’s biggest holiday for granted, as they celebrate the costume and candy festivities each year with reworked maps and new cosmetics.

This year, players have taken to exploring the Halloween version of Chateau Guillard, and are appreciating the various adjustments.

Now set under moonlight, the extensive French chateau most popularly known for deathmatch custom games is also becoming known for spooky Halloween details. Having released in 2018’s event, players are still making discoveries in the version of Chateau Guillard at night.

Normally, people get distracted by the fog and darkness, or maybe the jack-o’-lanterns and subterranean coffin.

But, taking a trip to the red study room, Redditor ‘YHJ_JYG_Kryptlock’ has discovered a neat little Overwatch easter egg involving candle wicks.

The new Halloween easter egg appears in Chateau Guillard’s red study room.

As they demonstrate in the clip below, if you shoot each wick of the candelabra, the candles will briefly light. It’s nothing crazy, but that doesn’t stop it from being a neat addition to an already detailed revamped map.

To find this easter egg, you’ll first need to find the red study room.

If you’re facing inward to the chateau from the outdoor area with a jump pad and statue, this room will be toward the back right as you enter. If you’re on the opposite end, at the balcony’s health pack, this will be to your left as you enter the chateau.

How to find Chateau Guillard’s Halloween easter egg

  1. Head to the red study room
  2. Locate the standing candelabra, in the back right of the room at the corner near the bookshelf
  3. Shoot the candle wicks
  4. Enjoy the lit candles
  5. Make a wish?

Ultimately, it’s a very simple easter egg, but a cute one. In a map covered in so much dreary darkness thanks to Halloween, lighting candles is a nice contrast.

Of course, it also makes for a decent party trick. So if you load into custom games, feel free to impress your friends by showing off your detailed map knowledge.
