Overwatch Fans Want Wrecking Ball To Just Be Called Hammond

Hammond is one of the better hamster names in history, miles ahead of Squeaks, Furball, or whatever else children name their pets. Despite this, the Overwatch team insists on officially calling the game’s newest hero “Wrecking Ball,” a name that sounds more befitting of a GI Joe action figure or a good (fight me) but played-out Miley Cyrus song. Players are not pleased about this.

The story is too old to be commented.

I also just call him Hammond instead of Wrecking Ball. Rolls off the tongue easier.

Wrecking ball is an awful name

It sounds like his Ultimate

Winston is called by his name why is Hammond different

When he lands on earth the Junkers named him (he can't speak, and they don't know who he is).

So whilst it doesn't really suite him, I get why and it actually makes more sense.

I know the lore but it’s still a stupid argument for if

It’s like calling DVa “Meka”

The only person (that we know) that knows Hammonds real name is Winston.

And they haven't reunited.

He’s adorable you don’t want something that cute to be called something like Wrecking Ball l, Hammond is better.

This just in.... then just call him Hammond, no one is stopping you.

If everybody calls him Hammond, then what’s the use of Wrecking Ball?

I just call him Hammond as well, but being labeled as Wrecking Ball isn't anything huge.
