Since his rework Torbjörn has seen a major increase in pickrate, some players are happy for more chances to play Overwatch’s Swedish engineer, but a new animation shows many players do not relish the fact they have to face off against good ol’ Torb.

Torbjörn’s rework gave him new abilities, an automatically upgrading turret, and a new ultimate that coats the floor in molten metal.

His new turret makes him a more viable option of offense and defense, but there are plenty of players who would prefer to not have to deal with him at all.

The animation is another from the talented dopatwo, who’s made a ton of Overwatch cartoons in the past, and begins with Torbjörn literally being summoned from a demonic portal.

Genji falls victim to Torbjörn’s new-and-improved turret before the Swede begins to unload on the unfortunate opposing team.

Not even a McCree pulling out Deadeye can salvage anything, and Torb takes care of him with a bit of molten slag.

There are a lot of players who would like to see Torbjörn gone, but it’s clear he’s here to stay, so players will just have to try and deal with him, just like in this hilarious animation.


Insane Overwatch Junkertown spot lets Widowmaker shoot through walls

Overwatch players looking to take the high ground on Junkertown second should beware of a sneaky wall where Widowmaker players can shoot through to score headshots.

Widowmaker thrives when she can dominate at a range and use her one-shot one-kill snipes to her advantage. The very threat of potentially having your head taken off from a mile away forces players to act differently.

Junkertown is one of the maps where the hero gets the most value with its long sightlines leading to all sorts of pick-off potential. And, as it turns out, some walls on its second point can be shot through if timed right.

As Twitch streamer Kragiee showed, while playing as Torbjorn, he attempted to duel a Widow at range and called it out to his team.

Widowmaker’s ability to one shot heroes is a massive threat.

After his turret was destroyed, the player started using the hammer’s melee and ended up getting shot right through the wall, confusing his chat.

“WHAT?” many viewers wrote, trying to make sense of what they had just witnessed.

Once the dust had settled and the match ended, the streamer reviewed what just happened using the replay viewer.

Amusingly, Kragiee’s hammer and claw seemed to have clipped through the wall, causing the Widow player to see exactly where he was.

However, while the hammer and claw may have clipped through, it didn’t explain why or how the Widow was able to score a headshot onto the Torb.

As some users pointed out in the chat, there seems to be a small gap where the character fired her shot that allowed the bullet to go through the wall and connect onto the Swedish builder hero.

It’s also possible that Torbjorn’s head clipped through just enough so that he was vulnerable despite technically being on the other side.

Regardless, it’s something that both all players should be aware of in the event they find themselves in a duel on the second point and need any advantage they can get.
