Incredible multiplayer game with heroes Overwatch 2 suitable for chaotic, rotating matches where the momentum can fluctuate from one team to another in the blink of an eye, as shown by one-player Lucio’s shootout with opposing Roadhog. On paper, most players might think that Roadhog is handily winning a fight as a tank against a support hero in Lúcio, since the tank absorbs more damage and hits harder than the healer. However, this Lucio player knew how to use the character’s abilities and the map he was on to wrest a small victory from the jaws of defeat at the hands of the opposing tank.
Blizzard released Overwatch 2multiplayer mode in October 2022, bringing with it several notable changes to the competitive multiplayer team-based hero shooter from the original. Overwatch. Some of the changes included a reduction in team size from six to five, the introduction of a new base game mode in Push, and the removal of the first game’s loot boxes in favor of a Seasonal Battle Pass model. The sequel also brought a number of changes to the hero roster, with some heroes undergoing a complete overhaul, such as Doomfist being changed from a DPS hero to a tank.
However, the two heroes that didn’t jump classes were the aforementioned Lucio and Roadhog, whose back and forth moves during the Colosseo Push match were posted on Reddit for players to see. The clip was posted by NotEvenCreative on Overwatch a subreddit demonstrating how Lucio was able to get a small win against Roadhog after being nearly knocked off the map by said tank. Creative’s Lucio can climb the wall to the edge of the map without Roadhog noticing before the latter is knocked off the map in response thanks to Lucio’s sonic wave.
According to some players, the Creative video could serve as an almost perfect embodiment of Overwatch 2 and why the series remains popular despite the release of a sequel about six years after the first game’s release. The game follows many of the typical trends that players can find in most hero or class based shooters where it is important to have a balanced team composition and potential responses to whatever the opposing team has. However, Blizzard has given most heroes enough flexibility that, under the right circumstances, a seemingly weaker hero like Lucio can still win a one-on-one fight against a stronger hero.
This is hardly the first clip to emphasize this idea, especially after all the reworking and balancing done to match Overwatch 2release. In a similar clip, the player manages to win the match as Mercy, who is considered by many to be one of the weakest healers in terms of dealing and taking damage. The cutscene shows how, under the right circumstances, with the right order and combination of abilities, a weaker hero like Mercy can be just as effective as the best DPS heroes in the game.
