xQc gets perfect revenge on aggressive Overwatch teabagger

While popular Twitch streamer and former Overwatch pro Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel might be known for his epic, on-stream rages, but an April 5 broadcast had his gameplay skills in full display.

xQc was in the midst of a game of Overwatch when he was taken out by a Reinhardt player cheekily named ‘6rexit,’ who saw fit to teabag his opponent before moving on.

Lengyel had an incredulous reaction to the insult, reeling back in his chair before jumping back into the game – choosing to come back as Reinhardt, no less.

BlizzardOne Reinhardt player decided that teabagging xQc was a good idea – prompting the streamer to make a hilariously epic comeback.

xQc’s brilliant comeback

xQc eliminated four players in quick succession after hopping back into the fray, including ‘6rexit,’ going on to post a hilarious message in the game’s chat as a good-humored warning.

“Don’t ever, ever touch my body again,” xQc typed, screaming, “That’s why you don’t do that!”

A surprise Reinhardt glitch?

Lengyel’s epic comeback follows his discovery of a major bug with Reinhardt nearly a week prior, where the character’s shield went AWOL during a ranked match.

Even though xQc hadn’t activated the ability, Reinhardt’s shield was up and blocking damage, despite the player swinging his hammer to and fro.

“What the fuck, what the – what’s happening?” the streamer asked, laughing at the glitch.

The bug doesn’t seem to be too serious, as xQc didn’t experience the issue again during his broadcast; no other players reported the glitch, either, rendering the mishap a possible one-time bug.

Not a fan of Blizzard’s April Fools joke

That isn’t the only Reinhardt oddity xQc has dealt with in recent days, either – the streamer likewise lost his cool with Blizzard’s 2019 April Fools day prank, which automatically capitalized Reinhardt player’s in-game messages (with several exclamation points) in the spirit of the character.

BlizzardBlizzard’s Reinhardt-themed April Fool’s day prank didn’t go over well with xQc, who couldn’t find the humor in being unable to communicate properly.

Despite the joke’s good-natured intention, xQc didn’t find it funny, noting that it was difficult to accurately communicate in the middle of a game.

“WHY DOES THIS APRIL THING MAKE ME UNABLE TO TYPE PROPERLY!!! CATCHPHRASE!!!!!” xQc wrote in the chat. “DUDE, I’M ACTUALLY DONE!!! PRECISION GERMAN ENGINEERING!!!!!”

xQc was a former professional player for the Dallas Fuel, before leaving the team in March of 2018.

Since then, he’s become a full-time streamer, resulting in some hilarious moments – such as his epic comeback against a fellow Reinhardt player.

Best Overwatch tricks to dominate any hero as Tracer

Tracer has been one of the best Overwatch heroes for quite some time with a tremendously high skill ceiling. However, in 2020, the character has some new tools up her sleeve that players should really take advantage of, especially with Overwatch 2 in development.

In a new video by educational YouTuber Nathan ‘KarQ’ Chan, Overwatch League pro and Tracer specialist Dante ‘Danteh’ Cruz shared his best tips to battle each of the game’s heroes.

As a general tip, he advises that players learn map geometry to better navigate your way around to confirm frags. Remember, an earlier patch in 2020 made it so Tracer can Blink upwards onto ledges allowing for some vertical mobility.

Knowing where these spots are and traversing sneakily will reward your gameplay and make you a huge threat to any enemy backline.

Understanding Hog’s primary and secondary fire is key.

Moving onto individual matchups, one of the most interesting tips that Danteh has for facing a D.Va is to Recall a bit earlier when she uses Self-Destruct. While most guides suggest to do so right away, he advises to do so earlier so you have even more time to secure a kill onto her in Baby form.

Against Roadhog, aside from staying away from his Hook, understanding how his primary and secondary fire operates will pay dividends. If you can play around both distances, you’ll have a much easier time to farm Ultimate charge off of him.

If the enemy has a Sigma, it’s best to open up the engagement with Pulse Bomb so he doesn’t have time to use Kinetic Grasp and eat it. After that, you should be free to melee him to death or use primary fire to secure the kill.

When dealing with an Ashe or Widowmaker, this is where the map geometry really comes into play. Use your map knowledge to get near those hitscan heroes and go in for the kill, especially if they’re already scoped in.

Doomfist can be a massive pain for a lot of heroes, but not for Tracer. Because he’s so cooldown reliant, you can easily get away from his abilities. If you’re able to focus him every chance you get, he won’t be able to do much.

Thanks to Tracer’s range buff, she can easily stay out of range from McCree’s Flash Bang while pressuring him. Use this to your advantage to negate his best tool in the 1v1.

Don’t be afraid to just stick Baptiste.

For Pharah, she can be a bit tricky to deal with, but keep in mind that she is often run alongside a Mercy pocket, which means the other enemy support may not have peel if you can focus on them. Make us of this and pressure the enemy backline to render the Pharah pick useless.

Against Baptiste, a lot of players like to wait until he’s already used Immortality Field before going for a Pulse Bomb. However, Danteh doesn’t agree. If you can stick Baptiste, even if he gets lamp out, it will be destroyed by the Bomb and leave him with a mere 40 HP. Don’t be afraid to just go for it.

Tracer can be a very rewarding character to play when you know what you’re doing. Keep these tips in mind next time you Blink into battle and watch your SR rise as you climb the Overwatch ladder.
