Terrifying Moira glitch will haunt Overwatch fans’ dreams

A new glitch for Moira that affects her emotes might just be one of the creepiest Overwatch bugs in the history of the game.

Players have plenty of reason to be afraid of Moira, her Damage Orb can knock you out if she’s on the enemy side, and if she’s on your team, you have to hope she focuses on healing and not getting that gold damage medal.

Overwatch has received a number of updates in the last week, but one of them apparently contained a bug that can give players nightmares.

Moira is capable of inducing fear in any veteran Overwatch player.

Reddit user Owlero posted a video of the supposed glitch to Reddit, and it does seem like Moira forgot how to move the muscles on her face.

As the emote starts up, her face doesn’t change at all like it’s supposed to, instead she just has the same neutral face she always has. If you’ve wondered what a good Overwatch creepypasta would look like, look no further than this monstrosity.

No matter how disturbing it is, the glitch is a relatively minor one since it only seems to affect the emote and Moira’s face.

Even though it is creepy, the glitch seems fairly simple, so Blizzard should be able to fix it or patch it out, if they manage to get to it.

The glitch shouldn’t be too hard to fix for devs.

Overwatch is in the middle of some major upgrades at the time of writing, including the new Hero Pool feature and more hero-specific patches, so hopefully Moira’s glitch gets fixed with the next major update.

How to use OP Torb turret placement in Overwatch Junkenstein’s Revenge

Junkenstein’s Revenge is one of the best ways to earn loot boxes during Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event, and there are a few spots for Torbjorn’s turret you should probably know about.

Halloween in Overwatch means plenty of new skins to unlock, including the Ragdoll Echo skin, which is now available until the event ends on November 3.

The only way to unlock the DPS hero’s new skin though is to win 9 games in any mode. If you stick to quick play and competitive this could easily take one or even two whole days, but if you simply grind them out in Junkenstein’s Revenge, the wins will only take a couple of hours instead.

Even though the seasonal PvE survival mode goes quicker than regular matches, you can definitely still lose if you don’t have the right team comp. This means that at all difficulty levels, Torbjorn is still a must-pick for his turret and it’s constant damage output.

You won’t get far in the harder difficulties of Junkenstein’s without Torb.

As for where to put this powerful, Zomnic-slaying device, there are several options that all work quite well, and are all fairly easy to pull off too – like on top of the overturned cart right down the middle lane. It has a commanding line of sight for the middle and left staircase spawns, and even covers part of the pond on the right side.

The best part of this spot might be the fact that it’s too close for Zombardiers to immediately target it, and it will hold boss aggro for as long as it’s around.

Next, placing the turret on the railing right on top of the left-hand stairs also gives it a great shot at all three spawns instead of just two, and gives you the ability to run up there and repair it when needed.

Finally, if you’re looking for something extra flashy to really impress your teammates, there’s even a way to get the turret up to the wooden platform just above the door where Widow and Ashe usually hang out.

Like in the clip above, head up the stairs to the right and go on to the platform they lead to (the place we all used to place the turret). Then head to the ledge closest to the door and aim at the ridge on the tower above the platform, straight up from the bush on the right side.

Another option is to jump from the edge and throw it at the apex of Torb’s leap if you have trouble getting it there while standing still. Toss it up, and your little guy is all set to rain down death on the army of undead charging the gates, and hopefully unlock that Echo skin a little bit quicker.
