One stealthy maneuver by a Shanghai Dragons player may have clinched victory for the team over the Philadelphia Fusion.
Kim “Fleta” Byung-sun wowed fans and his fellow players by performing a move that some have dubbed the “Invisible Pulse Bomb” during a preseason match against the Philadelphia Fusion. The match occurred on Tuesday, Sept. 21, and served as a window for players to see just what could happen when over $3 million hangs in the balance between the two.
Here’s out recap of the latest play in the Overwatch League.
OWL Dragons’ DPS Fleta Wows Fans with Tracer Invisible Pulse Bomb
The two had made it to the second point on Volskaya Industries.
At a one point during the match, Fleta set his sights on the Fusion’s Kyung-bo “Alarm” Kim, who was perched just out of reach as Ana. Alarm managed to poke the Dragons just enough to keep them from taking the point—which didn’t sit well with Fleta.
As he approached the point, he positioned himself just behind a crate so he could remain out of sight. Then, he blinked twice to Alarm’s position and dropped his ultimate—Tracer’s Pulse Bomb—while simultaneously activating her rewind ability to return to his position behind the crate.
This move was pulled off so swiftly that it appeared as though he had never been there in the first place. Much to the chagrin of the Fusion, Alarm found himself on the receiving end of a mysterious “invisible” ultimate which left the team at a severe disadvantage at the worst time. The Dragons were able to make the push shortly afterward.
Tracer is known to have a near invisible skill ceiling, allowing skilled players to pull off impressive feats like this at the drop of a hat. No doubt we’ll be seeing plenty of moves like this in the future.
