Overwatch bans public cheater mid-stream


Here’s your dose of sweet, sweet justice for the day.

A Korean streamer was using an aimbot in an Overwatch match while performing for the internet crowd when Blizzard’s GMs caught wise to his act and banned him but good. If you ever feel frustrated at seeing blatant cheaters in the game, watching this happen is chicken soup for the gamer soul.

For everyone else — who would never, ever cheat, we trust you — Blizzard has a treat coming in a few days: a new animated short starring Bastion. “In this episode, we follow the forgotten battle automaton as it unexpectedly reactivates after laying dormant in the wilderness for over a decade. Fascinated by its unfamiliar surroundings, the curious omnic begins to investigate, but quickly discovers its core combat programming may have a different directive…”

As you wait for that to arrive, you can watch the cheating streamer get his comeuppance. We’ve got the video evidence for you below (the banhammer hits him around the three-minute mark).
