Overwatch 2 players have encountered a bug that transforms Bastion’s ultimate mortar style into a full Call of Duty killstreak and it’s nearly impossible to escape.
There are a ton of gameplay changes when comparing Overwatch 2 to its predecessor, but for Bastion mains, none of them are as significant as the change in its ultimate ability.
Instead of the wandering grenade launcher of yesteryear, he now unleashes terror from above by raining bombs on the opposition. While this update only makes the moving turret drop a few explosives, there is a bug that allows the attack to take on a whole new level of lethality.
Overwatch 2 bug turns Bastion’s ult into an inescapable bombing raid
Multiple clips of this issue have appeared on the internet, but this one from former pro player Brandon “Seagull” Larned totally sums up how hard it is to get away from the incoming air raid.
Despite making his way through an impressive section of the map, he still gets entangled in the dreaded red circles that indicate where the next bomb will land.
The first hit lands on the payload, but the hits don’t stop until they reach Larned’s Zenyatta, who has already retreated as far as possible.
In the clip, the ex-Dallas Fuel member yells “he’s doing it again!” as he tries to get away, which should give everyone a good idea of how scary this move can be.
These kinds of bugs typically don’t last long and Blizzard will probably have it patched out of the game in the near future, but for now anyone looking to climb the competitive ladder should be wary of Bastions loading up on the other side inside.
