Overwatch Hammond Glitch caused the hamster in a giant mechanical ball of doom to be temporarily disabled Wednesday in competitive play.


Xbox Overwatch players began reporting issues surrounding Wrecking Ball, or Hammond as he's otherwise known, and his ultimate, which caused games to crash. Blizzard responded to the issue Wednesday by sending the hero packing for a while as the developers try to solve the problem.


Here's everything you need to know about the issue that caused Wrecking Ball to be disabled.

"Wrecking Ball has been temporarily disabled while we investigate an issue causing disconnects from matches. We will provide additional updates as they become available," Blizzard said in a tweet from its customer support account.


The bug at hand occurred when a Wrecking Ball player would use his Minefield ultimate at the same time another player on their team would use any ultimate.


Keep in mind this issue is contained to Xbox, but it's unknown whether or not it's occurred on PlayStation 4 or PC.
