Tired of getting let down by team-mates in competitive Overwatch? Not keen on 1-on-1 Mystery Heroes? Then you could always take part in a new individual challenge for the Blizzard game. Speedrunning the Overwatch hero menu!
That’s right. Some players have created the challenge to drag your cursor all the way from left to right without touching any hero portraits.
As so often happens on the internet, the idea of speedrunning the Overwatch hero menu originated on Reddit. The Overwatch subreddit has brought the competition to the wider world.
And already the record has been taken down to 530 milliseconds. Which is likely to be tough to beat until the next UI update to the hero menu.
As always, there’s the rivalry between PC and console games. And in this case, the PC advantage of whipping your mouse across the screen will definitely trounce anyone trying to navigate with a joypad.
If you’re looking for a slightly tougher and more traditional Overwatch speedrunning challenge, then it’s all about completing the Tutorial as quickly as you can. The current best time is 3 minutes, 50 seconds and 930 milliseconds by a player named Midnight.
