Either Blizzard Is Trolling or the Next Overwatch Hero Is a Gerbil

New Overwatch hero 28 is… a hamster Overwatch – well that was unexpected

We now know that Hammond (aka Wrecking Ball) is indeed the new Hero 28 as expected, but he's not the chimp or woman we initially thought.

Hammond is a mischief-making tank hero who fires machine guns out of his mech, which can roll into a "wrecking ball".

Wrecking Ball's combination of tinkering and bruiser-style tanking should make the hero a very interesting addition to the roster.

Create temporary personal shields. His ultimate ability is called Minefield, which deploys a plethora of explosives that detonate when enemies are within proximity. No team is too much for Wrecking Ball to engage against with his Adaptive Shield, which generates more health based on the number of enemies nearby.

PILEDRIVER Slam into the ground below to damage and launch enemies upward. Instead of Fusion Cannons, Wrecking Ball's primary weapon of choice are Quad Cannons. Of course, Hammond doesn't speak any human languages, but a minor AI in how Wrecking Ball helps him communicate in a "fittingly menacing tone". In Overwatch lore, Hammond is the missing specimen off the Horizon Lunar Colony.

Wrecking Ball's Grappling Claw ability is what truly diversifies him from the crowd. During the rebellion on Horizon, he secretly attached his escape pod to the back of Winston's ship, hitching a ride to planet Earth to save himself from imminent destruction. He upgraded that pod into a risky, sturdy mech. Blizzard even recently updated the Lunar Space Colony map to include Hammond's room.

Overwatch teased its next hero on its Twitter account today with a short video. But the scientists' emails said he'd escaped his cage and separately noted a unusual rattling in the ventilation system, so it really looks like Blizzard planned for a hamster hero all along.

Until last night, fans were unsure of whether Hammond and the hamster character were one and the same.
