Reinhardt flanks are among the riskiest in Overwatch. Every second a team spends without their main tank to protect them is a second in which their entire offense could fall apart. That didn't deter this Reinhardt player, who employed an underused Eichenwalde flank to pick up a snazzy team wipe.

In the clip, posted to the Overwatch subreddit Friday by u/shleepybear, shleepybear and his team finish up capping Eichenwalde's first point and start advancing toward its second. Shleepybear, with their Earthshatter, fully charged, decides to ditch their team and duck into a side passageway.

As the payload advances, shleepybear charges through the passageway that runs under the main path. They come out directly behind the entire enemy team, which has pushed up to challenge the payload.

Spotting their moment, shleepybear slams their Earthshatter down, hitting five of the six enemy players and allowing their team an easy clean up and a flawless victory. They even manage to pin the Genji that escaped the Shatter, making for a clean wipe.
