Hammond the Hamster is in a wrecking ball, and almost criminally cute.
Overwatch‘s newest hero has been revealed, and it might not be what you may have expected. Joining the fight will be Hammond, who is… a hamster. A hamster in a wrecking ball. And yes, that is every bit as cute as you might imagine it would be.
According to Blizzard, Hammond is a tank, which means he’s great for taking punishment as he pushes against the enemy’s frontline. His wrecking ball comes with great offensive power, while his Adaptive Shield gives him just that much more durability on the field. He has a grappling claw to be able to get back to his team should he ever need to, too. He actually has a plethora of abilities- you should watch the trailer below to see the adorable furball in action.
Currently, he is playable in the Overwatch Public Test Region. That said, everyone should be able to play him as he is released to the public in the coming weeks.
