Overwatch's 28th hero is a hamster in a giant ball-shaped mech

Earlier today we revealed not only the totally out of left-field hero announcement from Blizzard regarding their hit FPS Overwatch, but also some of the most priceless reactions as well. He was constantly escaping his cell and the scientists never knew why.

KitGuru Says: I can imagine that once these unique spots have been figured out for Wrecking Ball's Grappling Claw, competitive play is going to be all the more interesting to watch as a result.

ROLL Transform into a ball and increase maximum movement speed. They take a while to arm, they're obvious, and they're loud, so you won't be able to get out a surprise deployment - but the minefield will cause massive explosions, disrupting the map for the enemy team. And if you wanna see Wrecking Ball in action, check out Seagull's Twitch stream, which will include Jeff Kaplan at 2pm PT.

"When Wrecking Ball is at his strongest, he can use Minefield flings mines onto the ground that deal a considerable amount of damage to enemies unfortunate enough to trigger them".

ADAPTIVE SHIELD Create temporary personal shields.

The Piledriver ability allows the gamster to slam down from the air and knock his enemies off their feet.

The president could not hear the protesters' shouts as he spent the day in Bedminster, New Jersey at the Trump National Golf Club. A band of drummers whipped up the fervour of a crowd carrying signs including, "Our New York is Immigrant New York".

Wrecking Ball's combination of tinkering and bruiser-style tanking should make the hero a very interesting addition to the roster.

Entering the fray, his large health pool and shield-generating capabilities give him resilience when initiating and finishing battles.

This is Wrecking Ball.

We're able to play as a hamster in a insane tank-ball, you guys.

Since the reveal, Blizzard has released several more clips, including one about his origins and a developer update, which discussed what players can expect from Wrecking Ball. But the scientists' emails said he'd escaped his cage and separately noted a odd rattling in the ventilation system, so it really looks like Blizzard planned for a hamster hero all along.
