On all platforms he’s available for everyone, we’ve put together a guide to help you get acclimated to his various moves and abilities. Here’s everything you need to know.
Who is Wrecking Ball?
Wrecking Ball, also known as Hammond, is a fictional 14-years-old playable character in the 2016 video game Overwatch. He is an intelligent hamster who controls a quadrupedal robot mecha. The character was introduced in late June 2018 as the title’s 28th hero and made available for all players in late July 2018.
Hammond the hamster held in captivity at the Horizon Lunar Colony in the Overwatch universe. Animals were held and administered various types of gene therapy. While scientists studied how they adapted to staying on the moon for long periods of time. The colony housed mainly monkeys, gorillas, and primates. But it was also home to smaller creatures like Hammond.
Hammond grew smarter with each passing day, while in captivity often escape his habitat to explore the moon base and pick up skills as a mechanic. Overwatch mainstay Winston hatched a plan to escape to Earth, and Hammond wanted in , after the gorilla uprising that took out the colony’s team of scientists.
Using his knowledge he created his own small capsule and attached it to Winston’s escape pod. Diving to Earth, Hammond found himself in Australia.
The brilliant hamster modified his unrivaled escape pod into a fighting mech. He hit up the Scrapyard’s battle arena while in Australia. While rising up the ranks under the name Wrecking Ball using the winnings he collects.
What kind of hero is Wrecking Ball?
Wrecking Ball is a tank hero with some fascinating play mechanics.
Hammond obviously can’t jump out and take on enemies.As he’s dependent on his outer shell. Wrecking Ball’s mech shell makes him difficult to kill, and a powerful disruptor. He’s also entirely dependent on waiting for cool-downs to expire.
His Ultimate ability is sluggish to charge and it can take forever to charge through the primary fire alone. You’ll need to actively charge his Ultimate while saving heftier abilities for souped-up heroes and tanks that seek to counter Wrecking Ball.
What abilities does Wrecking Ball have?
Wrecking Ball features a wealth of tank-centric abilities:
This weapon act as a Wrecking Ball’s primary firing mode. He has a decent number of bullets to kill enemies with it.
The Grappling Claw does damage by busting through enemy crowds at high speeds. If it going at high-speed it provides knock-back. When at full speed (white-hot), it’s good for at least 50 points of damage to any unfortunate enemy caught in its wake. Otherwise, you can use it to swing across the map and get to where you’re going much faster.
The Adaptive Shield is Wrecking Ball’s lifeline. It is an integral part of keeping you in the game. It becomes even stronger when deployed while near the enemy team. It can only be used outside of Hammond’s Roll form. It can also give you a chance to make a tactical withdrawal if needed.
This attack is the best one. Enemies can dodge if they see it coming. The other team is in for a world of hurt if you land it. Make sure you use Adaptive Shield right after engaging Piledriver, as well, so you aren’t killed after executing your attack.
