Twitch is celebrating the launch of new Overwatch hero Wrecking Ball with free loot boxes for Twitch Prime members.

Members of Twitch Prime will be able to redeem two exclusive Wrecking Ball loot boxes which will offer up to four items each of exclusively Wrecking Ball-related cosmetics.

In addition to the Wrecking Ball loot boxes available right now, players with Twitch Prime accounts will also be gifted a Golden loot box in both September and October.

Golden loot boxes are guaranteed to reward the player with at least one Legendary skin which they do not already own, making them very valuable to skin collectors. Legendary skins have a fairly low drop rate in regular boxes and cost either 1000 or 3000 credits to purchase, which means unlocking new Legendaries can mean a lot of waiting or a lot of money spent on regular loot boxes.

Blizzard is also putting on a free weekend for Overwatch between July 26-28, celebrating both the release of the new hero and the grand finals of the Overwatch League. Players who create an account for the free weekend will also be able to redeem the Twitch Prime loot boxes, and if they later purchase the full game any items unlocked will carry over.

In order to receive the loot boxes, Twitch Prime members will need to link their Blizzard account to their Twitch account.

Crafty Overwatch spot can give you the drop on Lijiang Tower

A new perch where Overwatch players can hang out has been discovered on Lijiang Tower’s Night Market stage, and it’s somewhere the enemy team will never think to look.

There are plenty of out the way and unexpected spots you can post up on in Overwatch, and the stages of Lijiang Tower contain a good number of them.

With plenty of roofs, walkways, nooks, and crannies, there are plenty of places to lay in wait for unsuspecting enemies, but this one discovered by Reddit user InfamousHandy on a whole other level.

Overwatch Lijang Tower Night market spot ( IDK if this spot was shown before) from Overwatch

In the area just outside the spawn room, there’s a building to the right (or left depending on which side you’re on) that’s covered in dark awnings. As you can see, with an ability like Reaper’s Shadowstep it’s actually possible to get up there and chill as long as you like.

If you can get up to this spot on the enemy side with your ult without being seen or destroyed, you have a chance to drop down and score some eliminations while the other team is still regrouping.

It’s not just Reaper who can reach it either, Echo, Pharah, and Lucio also can on their own, and any hero can as well with the help of Symmetra’s Teleporter. Just imagine what it would be like to get a Bastion up there.

The only downside is that to have any chance in a regular match of getting kills with this, you will most likely have to make your way to the enemy side of the map, which can be a challenge all on its own sometimes.

Side corridors are your friend for sneaking around on Night Market, shown here, ironically, during the day.

To increase your chances of making it across undetected, we’d suggest using the side corridors, if you lack a movement ability that lets you avoid the ground altogether, like Lucio.

With the Lunar New Year event coming right up after Winter Wonderland though, this strat might be worth keeping in your back pocket for those special Capture the Flag modes.
