Wrecking Ball, Overwatch's Cute Hamster Hero, Goes Live on Public Servers Next Week

Something fluffy this way comes.

Overwatch's newest hero, Wrecking Ball, will go live to the public on PC, PS4, and Xbox One next week on July 24. This will be the first chance to play Overwatch's adorable hamster ball of destruction outside of the Overwatch PTR.

Hammond aka Wrecking Ball is Overwatch's newest hero. Hammond was also an experiment at the Lunar base alongside Winston and was gifted with a mechanical genius and sharp intellect. Hammond escaped during the uprising and crash landed in Junkertown where under the Junker Queen he piloted a large hamster ball/wrecking ball that can swing, crash, and roll across the battlefield.

Also, he's cute as a button. I don't know about you but seeing a hamster pilot a heavyily armed hamster ball is just really adorable, and even in death it's hard to see past the fact that he's a adorable hamster. Just look at his little cheeks!

For more on Hammond, check out our Overwatch guide. We also have a list of best Overwatch skins, but it hasn't been updated with Hammond's wardrobe quite yet.
