A redditor has created a montage demonstrating the bugs with Overwatch hero Reinhardt.

Reinhardt is one of the most famously bugged characters in the game, a point that fans have raised consistently but has yet to be fully addressed by Blizzard.

The armored Crusader is one of the game’s original heroes and was for a long time a near permanent feature in compositions, as his sizeable shield offered the best protection for teams, particularly in the earlier days before players really figured out how to make the most of Winston or how to play around the enemy Reinhardt shield.

Despite being something of a fan favorite, unfortunately several aspects of Reinhardt’s kit have long had well-known issues. Both his charge and his Earthshatter ultimate have been plagued with hitbox problems – the former connecting when it shouldn’t, the latter failing to land when it should.

Redditor u/icekeuter put together a montage of plays, set to “Hard Knock Life”, demonstrating the unfortunate moments that can arise as a result of Reinhardt’s bugs, from full teams seeming immune to Earthshatter to enemies somehow getting “pinned” despite being behind cover.

Blizzard is currently in the process of updating several heroes to make them more viable in the modern state of the game, from recent reworks for Hanzo and Symmetra to an upcoming Torbjörn overhaul. While Reinhardt might not need changing, many fans are undoubtedly hoping that a series of fixes for his existing abilities is somewhere on Blizzard’s to-do list.

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.
