Sombra's Overwatch dance gets the makeover it deserves in this brilliant concept

by Ross Deason


If you’re an Overwatch fan, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll love this awesome concept that makes Sombra’s popular dance emote better than ever before.


Sombra’s dance sees the damage hero laying down some pretty impressive shuffle moves, but members of the popular Overwatch subreddit are keen to see one major improvement after a concept was shared on January 21.

In a post titled ‘What Sombra's dance SHOULD look like’, Reddit user ‘Owlero’ showed Sombra performing her routine but cycling through her various different skins as she did so.


This gave the hero a flashing multi-colored effect that makes the dance even more techno than it was originally!

You can view Owlero’s original concept below:


The concept quickly gained traction and fans were soon suggesting ways of making the idea even better. One user, for instance, suggested that the emote should only cycle through skins that the player owns.

Another asked Owlero whether it was possible to make the skins change in a time that matched the beat of Sombra’s steps - something that Owlero was more than happy to attempt:

However, It turns out that this isn’t the first time that a Sombra skin changing concept has been seen.

Users soon started to share a Sombra remix music video by a YouTuber named Dogboggle that uses her original music and voice lines and features a few dancing scenes where she flicks between outfits while shuffling:


The Reddit thread from Owlero amassed over 11,000 upvotes in the first eight hours after being posted - it is clear that Sombra fans would love to see the new emote concept added to the game!

The Overwatch community is regularly coming up with exciting new concepts for skins, heroes and more. If one is popular enough, there is a small chance that some version of it will end up in the real game eventually.
