xQc gets saved by his teammate in the funniest way possible

Getting saved by a teammate during an Overwatch match was enough to make streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel crack up multiple times.

While attacking the final point on Rialto, xQc uses Primal Rage before getting slept in the same room as a McCree, who decides it would be the perfect time to use High Noon.

Just before he’s about to put xQc out of his misery though, one of the streamer’s teammates hops in as Hanzo and puts an arrow right through his head.

It was so funny to xQc, that he wasn’t able to talk for the rest of the clip, just laugh and try to breathe.

Later on during stream, he decided to revisit the moment, which was already clipped, and it seemed just as funny to him as the first time it happened.

The enemy McCree had no idea the Hanzo was gunning for him, and even if he did, he’s have to cancel his ultimate to have any chance of saving himself.

xQc recently moved back to Canada after competing with Team Canada in the Overwatch World Cup Finals at Blizzcon, where the team got third place.

Overwatch players freak out at Baptiste’s huge new Amplification Matrix

Baptiste was the recipient of plenty of buffs in the latest Overwatch Experimental Card, including a major change to the size of his Amplification Matrix that is freaking out the game’s community.

The October 22 patch increased the width of the Haitian hero’s ultimate by a whopping four meters – up to nine from its previous five.

Now, Baptiste’s “window” as the community calls it, looks more like a garage door bigger than any shield in the game by a fair margin.

Keep in mind that the whole purpose of the Amplification Matrix is to double the damage or healing of any shot fired through it. Now, it’s extremely unlikely that teammates will ever have a reason to not shoot through the ultimate as it’s near impossible to miss.

The community has been joking about the size increase. On Reddit, LukarWarrior joked, “Baptiste, now available in IMAX,” suggesting that it’s not as big as a movie theater screen.

Others, such as educational content creator SVB noted how the ultimate is wider than the streets on King’s Row.

That said, it has plenty of uses on other maps where its entire width can be put to good use. BlazeBubble9 documented how there are so many chokes where the new window can come in handy.

Baptiste’s new Amp Matrix can come in handy on Numbani.

For instance, while defending or attacking first point on Numbani, the new ultimate can take up a whole spot on the high ground letting a whole team fire at will onto the objective doing double damage.

In another, you can see how trying to gain or prevent access to the bridge on Eichenwalde second is a breeze with the new ultimate as it perfectly fits within the choke.

Of course, because the change is on the Experimental Mode there’s a chance it doesn’t hit the live game, but in the past many of the buffs tested there end up going through, so players should prepare regardless.

Only time will tell if this ultimate buff changes how often players decide to pick the support in their matches.
