Sneaky Overwatch trick lets Sombra hide Translocator under Hanamura rock

Overwatch players looking to keep their Translocator active as Sombra – especially on Point B Hanamura – may have a new secret spot to teleport back to.

Attacking Point B on Hanamura can be a big challenge, with the defenders on the high ground waiting to push into your team. Like any 2CP/Assault map, securing an enemy team wipe can be the cleanest way to actually capture the point.

Sombra’s EMP is one of the best ultimates to enable your team to do just that, so farming it up by doing damage to the enemy is a must. The best way to do damage consistently is to stay alive and that’s where the Translocator comes into play.

Ideally, you want to put it somewhere the enemy team won’t destroy it, but close enough to their stronghold that you can get back in and infiltrate their backline. It’s a rinse and repeat play: Put down your Translocator, go invisible, damage enemies, teleport back out before they turn around and kill you.

Translocator can now be placed under the Hamamura rock? from Overwatch

The rock near the temple area on Point B has a secret spot where you can successfully place the Translocator so it appears under it.

As demonstrated by Reddit user ‘trelicity,’ Sombra is actually able to toss it behind and eventually underneath the boulder. When asked what happens if you actually Translocate, the user replied: “You appear on top of the rock, but the translocation animation appears in the place it was dropped.”

This location is great because it’s close to a large health pack that you can hack to up its refresh rate and keep yourself at max health. It’s also close enough to the point that you can keep utilizing it and follow the steps above to build EMP.

Farming EMP is an important part of winning as Sombra.

For attacking Sombras, this could be a real gem and something you may want to utilize.

Of course, it’s always possible that Blizzard patches this out of the game and prevents you from hiding the Translocator here, but until that happens, it’s a viable strategy.

If you’re looking to get around the Watch Dogs Legion map as John Wick, the Hitman operative is certainly going to be one you should unlock pronto. Here, we’ll show you how to do it in Ubisoft’s new hacking title. 

The game launched on October 29 and right off the bat players couldn’t believe how accurately the city of London looked. Whether it was the big red double-decker buses riding around, Buckingham Palace, or Stormzy ‘wanted’ posters – the community seem taken back by what they’re seeing so far.

Well, that’s not all they have to scream and shout about. One of the game’s operatives is called Hitman and has many of the character traits to that of John Wick, a character added to Fortnite in the past with an identical likeness.

While we don’t quite have that in Watch Dogs 3, we do have something just as exciting. Let’s take a look at how to unlock Hitman.

How to get John Wick Hitman operative in Watch Dogs Legion

The Hitman character comes with an insane pistol and assault rifle combination (Desert Eagle and G36), on the weapons front, but also a lot of vintage John Wick-style takedowns that people will enjoy.

It also auto reloads during combat rolls and has extra faction damage, which sets this operative right at the very top of the game in terms of standings. To get him, follow these simple steps:

  1. Load into Watch Dogs Legion. 
  2. Head over to Night Elms on the map.
  3. Take on the Neutralize VIP mission.
  4. Use your cargo drone to destroy an enemy drone, photograph evidence.
  5. Take control of your spider gadget and hack a computer to get a key card.
  6. Take down the Albion Contractor at the end of the mission, and take over Night Elms.

Here’s Night Elms, which you have to take over to get Hitman.

Once this mission is complete you will see the celebratory screen above, and will have unlocked the professional Hitman operative – ready to be played with.

So, there we have it! That’s how you can get the Watch Dogs Legion John Wick-esque character. For more guides and Watch Dogs 3 news, stick with us at Dexerto, as this guide should have made things a whole lot easier for you.
