Video games are almost naturally an illogical thing when it comes to how they depict certain things. They often go over-the-top to land the “wow” factor, even if that does cause a lot of “believability” to be lost. For a game like Overwatch, where every hero is heavily detailed, you’d think there wouldn’t be much to call out. But, in a forum post on Battle.net, some players did exactly that.
Battle.net player Blood threw out the challenge, “What are the most illogical things in Overwatch?” and players happily answered. For example, Reinhardt’s hammer was noted to be so big that it should KO most players upon a single hit. Others noted that you can hack physical abilities, but not electronic ones. Ana’s sleep darts should only work on people, and yet, they’re strong enough to not only puncture the armor on robots and mechs, but put them to sleep too.
Some stated that Hanzo’s dragon tattoos make no sense, while Reaper’s guns and ability to absorb souls definitely qualify as “illogical”. Lucio’s entire skillset, according to some, should be able to nuke the entire field, but he doesn’t.
“With how lucio works, any of his gun attacks should nuke the map and do insta kills to anything in the area.”
Winston’s gorilla punch apparently does the same amount of damage as Tracer, even though Winston is a gorilla.
And the list goes on and on, ranging from the funny to head-scratching consideration. Have you seen faults in logic with Overwatch? Let us know in the comments below!
