Blizzard has been hard at work reworking Symmetra's abilities, and her latest iteration is live on the Overwatch Public Test Realm. Players are now capable of throwing Sentry Turrets, creating a massive Photon Barrier, and the Teleporter is now no longer an ultimate ability. One Overwatch fan created a hysterical skin for the Photon Barrier.
In the clip, they create their Photon Barrier, and it unravels into a massive portrait of Blizzard's iconic Jeff Kaplan, staring wistfully at the player as the Barrier deploys. The mountains behind Kaplan's face give him a massive beard and mustache combination, and he ends up looking like an old time Civil War general.
Symmetra's new Photon Barrier is designed to stretch across the entire map, being incredibly useful for closing off a chokepoint. Although the barriers in game don't come with any skins of pictures, Blizzard should at least make an exception for Jeff Kaplan. He's the face of the Overwatch Team, and players would love to feature him in their matches.
