On Numbani in Overwatch, a glitch has been found that allows defenders to infinitely stall the initial capture point while using the hacker-damage specialist Sombra.

In a title such as Overwatch, where perhaps even the most minute differences can end up being the game-decider, it's important to discover and seize every advantage each map has to offer. Well, it seems this exploit has taken that philosophy up to another level.

Sombra Overwatch Exploit Lets Her Stall Infinitely Inside Wall on Numbani

As posted on YouTube by Talyir on Nov. 21, it seems that even after all these years and a sequel in development, there are still many secrets to be discovered on Overwatch's OG maps.

It turns out that by taking full advantage of Sombra's Translocator, players can glitch their way into the wall of the Aetria building and sit in the point unbothered.

In the comments, most were either impressed by Talyir finding this or indifferent about it perhaps being used against them due to the Overwatch dev team's strong track record of promptly patching exploits such as this.

Some also pointed out, however, that an easy way to counter someone doing this would be to have Hanzo use his Dragonstrike ultimate on the point, being that it kills everything in its path even through walls.
