Twitch streamer Felix ‘Overwatch when his Reinhardt shield started acting strangely during a round on Blizzard World.

xQc used to play in the Overwatch League for the Dallas Fuel before parting ways with the team roughly a year ago. Since then, he’s stuck to streaming and while he doesn’t play Overwatch 24/7 anymore, he still finds time to head back to the game every so often.

During a stream on March 31, Felix battled a stream sniper before hopping into ranked play and running into a weird Reinhardt bug on Blizzard World.

Blizzard EntertainmentThe bug appeared during a match on Blizzard World.

Keep those shields up no matter what

As xQc and his team pushed the payload towards the end of the second stage, they ran into the other team and the fight began.

Everything went as expected at first, but when xQc’s Reinhardt shield ran out, noticed something strange had happened.

Instead of being activated by xQc, his shield seems to do whatever it wants, even with xQc swinging the hammer away.

“What the fuck, what the, what’s happening?” the streamer asked no one in particular before laughing at the glitch.

From the clip it’s clear the shield is activated and blocking damage, even though Felix wasn’t using the ability.

How serious is the bug?

The glitch seemed to be a one-time thing since it didn’t show up again at all for xQc during the remainder of his stream and the match on Blizzard World, which his team was able to win.

There’s been no widespread complaints or reports about a new bug with Reinhardt’s shield, so this could be just a weird one-time occurrence.

It certainly doesn’t seem to be a major issue facing players, so it will be interesting to see if Blizzard does anything about it at all.

Cosplay

Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

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.
