Hammond Finds a way in the New Overwatch Update

Jul 24, 2018

Wrecking Ball is now live on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in the New Overwatch update!

Hot off the heels of victory at the Junkertown Scrapyard, Wrecking Ball is rolling in as the newest member of Overwatch! Coming in as the seventh Tank hero on the Overwatch roster, Wrecking Ball is armed with resourceful tinkering skills and a massive mech. He is equipped with tools of both destruction and strategy, including automatic-firing Quad Cannons to take down foes from a distance, a Minefield for setting traps or lighting up a pre-existing battle, and an adaptive shield generator to provide more protection from nearby enemies. Wrecking Ball also brings a whole new type of mobility to the Tank roster, being able to turn into a ball, use his Grappling Claw to propel himself and damage enemies with high-speed collisions, and deliver a devastating Piledrive to enemies unfortunate enough to find themselves under our hero!

Sounds scary. If you watch the Pro’s use Hammond in the PTR, you’d know this little hamster is a sheer forced to be reckoned with.  Crazy, unorthodox tactics will be used that’s for sure.  However, there are some big updates to other characters to counter this beast. Including my main, Sombra.  You can view all of the Patch Notes Here.  Most notable to me is Sombra’s indefinite Stealth.  Been ‘maining’ her since the beginning and I feel it will really disrupt the cadence I’ve used since her birth.
