This Overwatch player got hilariously betrayed by their own teammate

Sometimes, teammates save the day in Overwatch, but a lot of the time it almost seems like your teammates are a bigger obstacle to winning than the enemy team, which is exactly what happened in this clip posted to Reddit.

The clip was posted by user Outta_Ammo and shows them playing as Soldier 76 while attacking on Watchpoint Gibraltar.

As Outta_Ammo positions themselves to use Tactical Visor, the Mei on their team decides to put up an Ice Wall and send Soldier straight to his doom.

As the wall goes up and takes Soldier with it, the enemy D.Va sends a self-destructing mech onto the platform now perfectly equal with Soldier.

After detonating, the mech absolutely destroys poor Soldier and his lifeless body ragdolls hilariously off the platform.

We don’t get to see the in-game conversation between Outta_Ammo and his teammate, but hopefully it stayed respectful and constructive, for the Mei’s sake.

So remember Meins, next time you put up that Ice Wall to protect yourself, make sure you’re not unintentionally putting any teammates in the line of fire.

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
