Overwatch Workshop Scientist Gives Widowmaker Spider Legs
Overwatch Workshop creator and streamer Therister engineered a horrifying new version of Widowmaker, giving her four massive, dynamic spider limbs.
Therister posted their creation to YouTube and the Overwatch subreddit Sunday, where it quickly picked up momentum. The video shows Widowmaker stuck in a permanent jump with four long, bent legs sprouting from her torso. These legs make contact with the ground at pink points of light.
The Widowmaker can walk around using these new legs in an impressively off-putting fashion. The legs react to changes in the height of the ground around them, adjusting to meet inclines and even allowing Widowmaker to climb walls.
"[Full] disclaimer this was not actually my idea," Therister wrote in the YouTube description, "someone requested my help with this so here it be."
The YouTube video currently has close to 11,000 views, and the Reddit post stands at 27,000 net upvotes. Players can try out the mod using the Workshop code 5D4FX.
