Overwatch 2 you keep running into problem after problem with the latest problem the icy damage dealer leaves Mei completely unplayable Due to a “critical issue” with the Ice Wall ability. Well, Blizzard might also want to look into Kiriko, the hero shooter’s newest support character, as she might just be able to block headshots. [checks notes] looking at the sky.

Kiriko is a kunai-wielding ninja who heals leaked in early September. It used to be locked from the back Overwatch 2‘s battle pass, Blizzard has since chose to give the kunoichi away for free after some pretty vociferous criticism of the developer’s initial decision. Despite being a fairly lean hero with only 200 health, he can deal serious damage to some extent and has the perfect set to buff his teammates. In other words, she’s not a passive healer like, say, Baptiste or Mercy, but you probably don’t want her filling the enemy front like Brigitte or Zenyatta. However, that may change given the exploit discovered by Twitch streamer Flats.

partner Overwatch The league’s Florida Mayhem, Flats tweeted a video on November 15 of Kiriko looking up at the sun and blocking a header with his arm. Flats fired several shots at the opponent Kiriko with Widowmaker, the bullets only to graze the ninja’s seemingly unbreakable arm, allowing him to instantly recover. Flats eventually muttered a kick to Kiriko’s head, but only after positioning himself at the right angle did Kiriko say, “You have to go behind to shoot the back of the head.” Who knew that looking at the sky could save you from death?

Apparently, when he looks up, Kiriko’s arm interferes with the dome’s hitbox and affects the damage he takes from headbutts. In response to Flat’s tweet, one Twitter user noted Mercy was able to do the same, but only when she used her ultimate ability, Resurrect, which saw her raise her arm in the air to revive her dead teammate.

Kotaku has reached out to Blizzard and Flats for comment.

Blizzard, having a history of abuse and harassmentworked to get Overwatch 2 To a more stable and balanced state since the game started on October 4th. It includes Patches to nerf heroes like Genji and bending characters to eliminate exploits and solve other problems (as we saw with Mei, who the hero must return to the shooter where November 17). During Overwatch The studio announced the league grand finals that took place earlier this month Ramattra, a new tank hero to be unlocked behind the battle passage of the game. It’s bad, but I guess we’d better get used to it.
