Overwatch Next Hero Is A Hamster With A Wrecking Ball Mech

The latest 28th hero of Overwatch is Hammond, also known as Wrecking Ball, a genius hamster who pilots a well-modified mech. Wrecking Ball is currently accessible in PTR.

Wrecking Ball is a tank hero, capable of bowling through the front line of the opposition and causing mayhem in the back line. His primary weapon is quad cannons which consist of two sets of twin machine guns. For defense, his Adaptive Shield generates more health based on the number of enemies nearby.

The Roll ability allows Wrecking Ball to withdraw the mech’s robotic limbs, transforming it into a ball with increased movement speed. No obstacle can stand in Wrecking Ball’s way when he uses Grappling Claw, a short-range ability that grips the environment, letting him swing across terrain gaps or around corners to smash enemies. Grappling Claw also allows Wrecking Ball to reach top speed and ram into foes, dealing destructive damage and knocking them back. While airborne, the mech’s Piledriver ability causes Wrecking Ball to slam down from the air and knock his enemies off their feet.

When Wrecking Ball is at his strongest, he can use Minefield which flings mines onto the ground that deal a considerable amount of damage to enemies unfortunate enough to trigger them.
