Overwatch 2’s ninth season is almost over, and when the tenth begins on April 16, the hero shooter is getting just a few vital adjustments.All of its heroes will not be locked behind the battle go and the sport will get a brand new store devoted to Mythic Skins solely. However Overwatch 2 can also be getting a brand new Harm hero in Enterprise, a scrappy, drill-based, non-binary character who can dig themself underground and are available again up for air proper on an goal. Whereas we’ve solely seen concept footage of the character in motion, the Overwatch group is already embracing them and arising with inside jokes about them which can be spreading by means of the fandom like wildfire. Earlier than Enterprise has even escorted a payload or helped push a barricade, they’ve been deemed a rock eater.

The joke began innocently sufficient. Some fans noted Enterprise’s chipped tooth of their idea artwork and thus made the logical conclusion that they will need to have damaged it on one thing. On condition that their total equipment and design are based mostly on digging and drilling, gamers landed on the foolish concept that they will need to have been consuming rocks. As soon as the suggestion was made, Overwatch followers started working riffing on the concept in glorious artwork and jokes.

Whereas Enterprise is probably going too near launch for the Blizzard group to implement the joke into pre-match banter, Overwatch 2 builders previous and current have endorsed this collective headcanon.

Enterprise’s place within the overarching Overwatch world is unclear at this level, however sport director Aaron Keller has stated the group plans to launch extra on their lore sooner or later in a manner that’s “fairly totally different to issues that [Blizzard has] achieved earlier than.” Regardless of the Overwatch story seems like transferring ahead, it is going to have quite a lot of heavy lifting to do now that Blizzard has reportedly canceled its deliberate story missions.
