Overwatch Players Find Clever Flanks with New Hero Wrecking Ball

Blizzard recently started teasing the new Overwatch hero, who many believed to be Hammond.

Blizzard unveiled Wrecking Ball, the next Overwatch hero who will join the massively popular multiplayer shooter's roster of colorful characters as the sixth tank. Secondly, Wrecking Ball is now live on Overwatch PTR, so you can already give him a spin. Combined with the mech's built in Grappling Claw, which will enable him to grip onto the environment in a similar manner to how Widowmaker can quickly grapple to any available ledge, there is little doubt that Hammond is going to be the fastest and most maneuverable Tank in Overwatch. The hamster, like the others, showed exceptional growth in intelligence.

If you somehow missed the reveal and subsequent PTR release last night, Hammond is a super-intelligent hamster who pilots a mech. As the two entered earth's atmosphere, Hammond broke off and landed in a different location: "the wasteland of the Australian Outback". Hammond took the opportunity to secretly get on board Winston's craft in an attached capsule and broke off to land in a different location. With his quick wits, the small mechanic modified his escape pod into a rolling mech which earned him the nickname "Wrecking Ball", during his career as a battle arena mech fighter. Wrecking Ball is now available for testing on the PTR. Gathering his winnings, Hammond was able to upgrade his mech enough to survive the risky trek out of the Junker-controlled Outback. Then, there's Roll, where Wrecking Ball turns into, well, a ball, increasing maximum movement speed and causing a lot of mayhem. No team is too much for Wrecking Ball to engage against with his Adaptive Shield, which generates more health based on the number of enemies nearby. Once Hammond's Ultimate ability is charged up, you can deploy a giant minefield that covers an area that is roughly the same size as your average capture point. Hammond is designed as a tank character according to Kaplan.
