Winston Player Murdered By Teammate
Overwatch is a team game. Matches are won and lost almost entirely on the pieces of a given team working in unison toward the same goal. That’s what makes betrayal in Overwatch so painful: it is a betrayal so complete and inexplicable.
In this clip from u/TheGuabe, posted to the Overwatch subreddit Friday, Winston experiences just such a betrayal.
In the video, TheGuabe leaps onto the capture point in Nepal and, with no one else to contest, begins to flip the point. An enemy McCree fires three shots that connect with TheGuabe, but they simply put down their bubble to block the remaining shots. That bubble also keeps them safe from the McCree’s Deadeye, which they activated a moment before.
TheGuabe turns to the now-helpless McCree and shoots him a hello, waiting for the ability to end. Then, out of nowhere, TheGuabe’s teammate Wrecking Ball careens around the corner and launches the McCree into the air. Before TheGuabe can react, the McCree lands right inside the bubble for a free Deadeye kill.
