Overwatch has been only for only a few short weeks and it’s already a smashing success on all platforms. The game feels fresh and can be jumped into and learned with relative ease. It’s always been clear that Overwatch has some generosity to its aiming, especially with projectile weapon’s like Zenyatta’s orbs or Hanzo’s arrows, but a new video by Youtuber Force Gaming dives deep into the game’s hitboxes, and comes back with some interesting results.

Welcome to N4G where any clown with a keyboard and an internet connection can pretend to be a game journalist.

please don't insult actual clowns by comparing them to 'gaming journalists'

i think the problem is lag and tickrates, the hitboxes are big but not big enough to get killed around a corner

DiscoKid1797d ago

Right. It's the tick rate. Lol

Did you watch the video?
Clearly shows players being shot from around a corner...

Its true unfortunately, Hanzo arrow hitboxes are really wide and can headshot you when you're clearly behind a wall, there's quite a few videos showing this. I love this game to death but there's a few things that they need to tweak and fix.

Overwatch netcode is TRASH. Noted Battlefield community guy & Youtuber "BattleNonSense" that help transform BF4 netcode, has shown a Youtube video test showing how bad it is.
