An Overwatch 2 player has spotted an in-game character from Warhammer 40k: Darktide who bears a striking resemblance to one of Overwatch’s most beloved heroes, Hanzo.

As Overwatch 2 enters its first full year since going live in October 2022, the game is now in full swing. With Season 2 kicking off in February 2023 and the new Battle for Olympus event going live in just a few days, the Overwatch community is definitely on the rise.

However, it seems that even Warhammer 40k: Darktide players are inundated with Overwatch content. A Reddit user posted an image of Warhammer 40k: Darktide with the caption “Today I met Hanzo in Warhammer 40k: Darktide.”

The image features a figure that looks shockingly close to Overwatch’s Hanzo, albeit a bit bulkier than the hero. However, the two look incredibly similar, with clothes, hairstyle, and accessories matching across the board.

Many commented on the thread, joking that the Warhammer image was a “leaked Hanzo tank rework” for Overwatch 2. Others then encouraged the idea of ​​a tank Hanzo by writing how they would “play tanks Hanzo”.

Another added that – due to the more muscular appearance of Warhammer’s Hanzo look-a-like, the character simply “picks up teammates and now shoots them at the enemy”.

It is very common in video games for franchises to pay homage to other iconic games. These tributes take the form of things like in-game items, characters, and quotes that eagle-eyed fans love to see and post online. Little Easter eggs for the gaming community.
