Wrecking Ball is live with today’s Overwatch patch
After a mysterious teaser campaign and a stint on the PTR, Wrecking Ball (AKA Hammond) is now available to play in Overwatch. He is not available in Competitive Play to give players some time to adapt to the new meta, but players are free to give him a whirl in Quick Play or the Arcade.
His sizzle reel is also one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen in my life. I’m serious, you guys, we absolutely cannot trust Wrecking Ball. He will destroy us all and laugh in his little hamster voice while he does it.
Now that Wrecking Ball is live and off the PTR, all of his Overwatch League skins are available, so you can deck him out in the colors of your favorite team.
Wrecking Ball is the game’s 28th hero, and the second tank hero to be added to the game after launch, following Orisa.
