More Overwatch 2 Map Exploits Are Ruining Hybrid Mode

More Overwatch 2 Map Exploits Are Ruining Hybrid Mode

Well, after a beta launch day that had everyone prowling around like Theresa May in a field of wheat, it appears that Overwatch 2 isn't all sunshine and rainbows. In fact, the game is in dire need of some serious TLC before it's rolled out to the public.

After dropping 99% of its viewership on Twitch in just three days, the Overwatch 2 beta has proven some of the fans' worse fears that the grass isn't always greener on the other side, and as the professional players take to the title in the franchised OWL, the sequel's beta is throwing up some major problems with the Hybrid mode.

Overwatch 2 Beta Plagued With exploits

Teams have already been forced to replay maps after using an exploit dubbed as "illegal" - you could have a game without such exploits, but we guess that's what happens when you make unfeasible promises to a multi-million dollar franchised league and its investors - and more exploits are coming in by the day.

Even Felix "xQc" Lengyel is finding exploits that break the game, and now, a seriously overpowered move is allowing teams to take full control of the Hollywood Hybrid map from the get-go. 

 

Reddit users have found that you can kill opposing players out of the spawn on Hollywood within three seconds of the match starting, given you've got a keen shot, thanks to a glitch on the map.

Thankfully, the user who has brought this issue to light hasn't shown the method behind the madness, so that it isn't abused by a wealth of players. Still, the problem persists nonetheless and is absolutely breaking the game mode.

When it comes to Overwatch 2's Hybrid mode, the defenders are allowed to free-roam elements of the map while the attackers are marooned to a spawn area - giving the defensive team time to set up around objectives. However, this exploit now means that the defenders can get offensive and effectively spawn-trap teams without a fair fight.

Even with a Mercy on your team, the option to revive a fallen player to this glitch is impossible, due to the timing, which will occur before the chance for her ability to become available - meaning there really is no comeback to this bug.

The Overwatch League will likely pop this down in the rulebook to prevent players from taking advantage of the glitch in a professional manner, however, if you're operating the game in a casual manner, you might want to keep away from this angle or you'll have your game ruined in seconds.
