Streamer hilariously explains the best way to communicate in Overwatch

Team communication is crucial for Overwatch players who want to try and move up the ranks, but Twitch streamer Jorpen thinks the game has some of the easiest comms out there.

Like any other online multiplayer game, especially team-based ones, communication with teammates in Overwatch can be the difference between winning and losing a match, as long as teammates are actually listening.

But Overwatch comms might be some of the simplest out there, at least according to Twitch streamer Jorpen.

During a match on Ilios, Jorpen explains that “DOTA comms are a shit show, but in this game you just say the name of a hero randomly as much as you want until they’re dead, then you say winnable and that’s how you do comms in this game.”

The streamer then gives an example to viewers in the next fight. He starts calling out Reinhardt, but then switches to Zarya once she gets isolated.

After that, “winnable” starts coming out and, thanks to some nice ultimate coordination by Hanzo and Zarya, Jorpen’s team does indeed win the fight.

“‘Huge,’ that’s the other adjective you have to use,” the streamer added after his team had won the fight.

For anyone that’s ever had the chance to listen to professional Overwatch team comms, Jorpen appears to be spot on in his description of callouts in Overwatch.

But as they say, if it’s not broken, why fix it? Team callouts in Overwatch might often devolve into just repeating a certain heroes name and a few adjectives, but so far it seems to have worked just fine.


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.
