Mei’s Yeti Hunter is a special game mode for Overwatch’s Winter Wonderland event and this clip shows what might be the worst hiding place in the entire minigame.

Yeti Hunter has a team of five Meis attempt to take down a Yeti Winston, who is trying to gather meat to power up across the map.

Once the Yeti gets enough meat, he becomes an unstoppable killing machine that the hunters have to run away and hide from, and apparently the Yeti’s cave is not a good spot to be.

In the gif, posted to the Overwatch subreddit by user SqueeblesOW, the Yeti finds the final meat to power up with then notices the group of Meis attempting to go unnoticed in the cave.

The First Mei gets betrayed by her team and walled out of the cave at first, but it doesn’t matter, because soon the wall comes down and the Yeti player is able to finish off the round right there.

It’s good to group up as hunters because it’s much easier and faster to freeze and eliminate the Yeti, but when he gets angry, it’s probably a good bet to split up and hide anywhere other than his cave.

Overwatch’s Winter Wonderland event also includes another Mei-focused brawl “Snowball Offensive” that’s available until the event ends on January 2.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
