Continuing on their work from earlier in October, Overwatch fan and artist Xtremee_Ghost posted even more awesome Overwatch and Marvel crossover concepts to their Twitter page.

A total of seven new concepts were posted, including an awesome one of Doomfist as Black Panther that makes you wish Overwatch would start doing crossover events in-game.

There’s also Hammond reimagined as Rocket Raccoon, with his mech being transformed into Groot, which is absolutely perfect for Halloween.

The level of detail in each of these pieces is really impressive too, like the Starlord Tracer’s comic-accurate chest mechanism.

Moira definitely makes a great Hela too, as not only did Xtremee_Ghost make some awesome artwork, but they were able to match up Overwatch heroes with pretty similar Marvel characters, too.

Xtremee_Ghost has created a ton of awesome Overwatch art before, and it looks like they’ll be trying to finish all the Overwatch heroes as Marvel characters before Halloween.

These skins probably won’t be coming to Overwatch any time soon, unfortunately, but with the Winter Wonderland event coming up, there’s sure to be new skins revealed soon.

Overwatch players freak out at Baptiste’s huge new Amplification Matrix

Baptiste was the recipient of plenty of buffs in the latest Overwatch Experimental Card, including a major change to the size of his Amplification Matrix that is freaking out the game’s community.

The October 22 patch increased the width of the Haitian hero’s ultimate by a whopping four meters – up to nine from its previous five.

Now, Baptiste’s “window” as the community calls it, looks more like a garage door bigger than any shield in the game by a fair margin.

Keep in mind that the whole purpose of the Amplification Matrix is to double the damage or healing of any shot fired through it. Now, it’s extremely unlikely that teammates will ever have a reason to not shoot through the ultimate as it’s near impossible to miss.

The community has been joking about the size increase. On Reddit, LukarWarrior joked, “Baptiste, now available in IMAX,” suggesting that it’s not as big as a movie theater screen.

Others, such as educational content creator SVB noted how the ultimate is wider than the streets on King’s Row.

That said, it has plenty of uses on other maps where its entire width can be put to good use. BlazeBubble9 documented how there are so many chokes where the new window can come in handy.

Baptiste’s new Amp Matrix can come in handy on Numbani.

For instance, while defending or attacking first point on Numbani, the new ultimate can take up a whole spot on the high ground letting a whole team fire at will onto the objective doing double damage.

In another, you can see how trying to gain or prevent access to the bridge on Eichenwalde second is a breeze with the new ultimate as it perfectly fits within the choke.

Pushing into Eichenwalde just got a bit easier.

Of course, because the change is on the Experimental Mode there’s a chance it doesn’t hit the live game, but in the past many of the buffs tested there end up going through, so players should prepare regardless.

Only time will tell if this ultimate buff changes how often players decide to pick the support in their matches.
