Overwatch Players Can’t Get Over Torbjorn’s New Ult And Its NSFW Effects (VIDEO)

Blizzard recently updated Overwatch to feature a new Ultimate Attack from Torbjörn, the friendly Santa-looking gnome who wields a lil’ hammer, and there are some….questionable new voice lines from heroes who are harmed by it.  The new take on “Molten Core” for Torb’s ultimate involves him sticking up the lava claw hand and spraying a puddle of lava onto the battlefield, making a hazard for anyone so unfortunate as to step into the lava.  Your character will be burned and die if you don’t step out of the lava fast enough, or if you have too low health reserves left.

To accentuate this damage, heroes will now cry in agony and…well you might want to headphones in to listen to this video because it can be kind of NSFW:

That’s right! Now folks won’t have to go to naughty websites to get their Overwatch smut! It’s baked right into the game for all you pervs out there.  Bravo to Blizzard for listening to their passionate fan base and incorporating this feature into the main game.

All kidding aside it doesn’t seem that Overwatch boss at Blizz, Jeff Kaplan, is aware of the very sexy nature of these pained screams.  But maybe it’s better off that they keep it this way?  You be the judge!  Check out the devs statements regarding the new and improved Torbjörn:

“Torbjörn was initially designed to be a specialized hero, intended to be a strong defensive option due to his armor-generating capabilities and ability to control areas with his turret. However, the scrap collecting and Armor Pack mechanics have proven to cause problematic gameplay issues through their feast or famine nature. In order to make the hero more flexible in a wide variety of situations, we’ve removed the scrap system, made the turret much easier to deploy, replaced the Armor Pack ability with Overload—a powerful self-buff—and transformed Molten Core into a powerful new area denial ultimate ability.”
