First Time Overwatch Player Snags 5K With Bastion
Redditor TechedBalloon00 posted a video of their friend using Bastion for their first-ever time playing the game. Bastion is one of the many playable characters in the game, the animal-loving robot equipped with a machine gun and the ability to transform into a turret is not really picked that much anymore. Despite TechedBalloon00’s warnings about the character the friend went through with the choice.
In the clip Tech’s friend seems to be aimlessly walking around the map until they come up upon an ongoing battle. The friend then converts to Bastion's sentry gun mode and begins firing rounds at enemies.
The enemies are so focused on one of the teammates' shields that they pay no mind to the swarm of bullets flying at them from their left flank. TechedBalloon00’s friend sits there shooting for about 10-12 seconds, but by the time opposing players started shooting at them, it was too late. While using Bastion Tech’s friend rattles off a 5 player kill streak in their very first game.
Maybe after this clip, we might see a resurgence in Bastion gameplay from other Overwatch players.
