Hollywood is one of Overwatch’s most iconic maps, but it’s also one of its most challenging. Here’s a fun translocator trick for Sombra that’ll help you out on both attack and defence. 

Sombra has become one of Overwatch’s most notorious heroes both in terms of lore and as a playable character. The Mexican cyber queen is known for her flexibility: she works beautifully as a flanker, has enough raw power to dominate from the backline and can even become a support DPS.

One of the maps that sees the hacker played regularly is Hollywood, where often DPS players jump on Widowmaker or Hanzo to pop some heads. Sombra’s invisibility makes her perfect for dodging out of this full frontal sniper assault.

Another aspect of her kit that makes her the perfect Hollywood pick is her translocator, and one reddit user has a nifty trick to help you dodge attacks but still be impactful in fights.

Sombra translocator trick on Hollywood

Since the nerf to Sombra’s translocator which meant that it could no longer be placed on slanted surfaces, it’s been difficult to find an impactful spot to drop the tiny teleporter on Hollywood. The second area of the map — the Western themed set — is notorious for the slanted rooftops of the fake houses.

Reddit user TheOneLlama has come to the rescue though, and has given Sombra players a nice little translocator trick. If Sombra throws her translocator onto the Pioneer Hotel’s roof across from the walkway between the Bank and the Saloon, the device will land on the peak of the roof which is a flat surface.

From here, Sombra has a perfect eagle-eye view of the upcoming payload. This is perfect for defence because it means she’s there to pick off enemies, but also on attack so that she can disrupt the enemy backline.

So, as if Hollywood’s back alleys and passageways weren’t good enough for Sombra, this little trick makes her even more dominant on one of her strongest maps. Try it out and see; you’ll be turning out the enemy’s lights in no time.

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 17, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the next in-form team of 2021, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

There’s a number of stars that could slot into the in-form Ultimate Team lineup this week, including Bayern’s Thomas Müller, who had a hand in two goals against Freiburg as man of the match, and Lorenzo Insigne, for a goal and assist.

Ajax’s Klaas-Jan Huntelaar also wound back the clock with a late goal for his ladder-leading Amsterdam side against FC Twente. It would be his first in-form since April, 2019.

Perhaps the biggest game of the week played out at Anfield. There, defending champs Liverpool and archrivals United slugged it out for first, though neither could strike a knockout blow; in part, thanks to TOTW 17 contender Allison Becker.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week FIFA 21 promo so far, including when the Team of the Week lineup will drop, and Dexerto’s weekly predictions.

On Jan. 20, FIFA publishers EA will release the fifteenth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 17 promo will begin at 6pm (UK time), as per usual.

That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

These boosted TOTW 17 player upgrades will be announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the team as soon as it’s live.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 17 leaks

So far, EA SPORTS hasn’t let any early Team of the Week cards slip ⁠— after hilarious moments ahead of both TOTW 7, and more recently 10, when they accidentally shipped 11 upgraded cards early, they’re likely playing it extra safe.

If any leaks drop ahead of the official TOTW 17 reveal, we’ll keep you updated.
