A New Hamster Joins Overwatch? Wrecking Ball (Hammond) Revealed

  • New Overwatch hero 28 is… a hamster?!

Fans speculated that the first-person shooter's 28th hero could be Hammond, a monkey companion to the genetically-engineered gorilla Winston. It's not a troll, and Blizzard has an origin story video to prove it.

Many have suggested that this could be a prank, but we sincerely hope that this is not the case. The last hero added was Brigitte, a support class character that followed Moira, Doomfist, and Orisa as new additions to the game. At any rate, he worked on his mech over time and became a "force to be reckoned with", henceforth known as Wrecking Ball.

Now that Overwatch's hero 28 has been revealed, the community can pivot from theorizing about who the new fighter would be to analyzing their relevance to the future metagame.

"Wrecking Ball brings a plethora of unique traits to the roster of tanks available in Overwatch", Blizzard continued.

U.S. crude added 17 cents to US$70.70, having surged 3.6 per cent overnight, while Brent climbed 18 cents to US$76.49 a barrel. Chinese equities have now fallen 20 percent from a peak in January and are 45 percent lower than a high seen in 2015.

The furry hero's name is likely Hammond, as that is the only other being marked as "missing" in Lucheng Interstellar's (the organization responsible for creating intelligent creatures like Winston) databases. As the mech comes to a stop and starts firing at everything in sight, a hamster pops out and is clapping with glee, no doubt enjoying the destruction he's just caused.

Hammond's mech is similar to what we have seen on the Wrecking Ball champion from the fighter pits of Junkertown, hence we may assess a connection there.

"In one of the many experiments carried out at Horizon Lunar Colony, animals were given genetic therapy to assess their adaptation to extended periods of habitation on the moon". Hammond's mech can also shift into what Overwatch game director, Jeff Kaplan, describes as "Ball Mode", allowing him to roll around the battlefield quickly. Evidence suggested that Hammond lived in a cage (unlike Winston, who slept in a bed), ate carrots, travelled in a ball, and could move through the ventilation.
