An Overwatch player hit an insane prediction shot with Zenyatta in a game on Temple of Anubis.

Despite being a support hero, Zenyatta is capable of putting out immense amounts of damage in the right hands – see Overwatch League Season One, in which it was Zenyatta maestro Bang ‘JJoNak’ Sung-hyeon of the New York Excelsior who won the MVP award for the regular season.

In particular, Zenyatta excels at assassinating some of the lower-health heroes. A well-aimed volley can eliminate many heroes almost as quickly as a Widowmaker headshot, but the projectile travel time means hitting those shots as Zenyatta is as much about predicting where the enemy will go as it is about aim.


One Zenyatta player took the element of prediction to the extreme on Anubis. Playing on the defensive side, Bigly96 was set up on the high ground ahead of the first point when he spotted a Tracer trying to dash to the flank.

The flank route should be fairly safe for Tracer, whose multiple dashes can take her from cover to cover quicker than enemies can react. Bigly96 had only one chance to shut her down before her attack even began – to anticipate both where and when she’d make her move.

With pinpoint accuracy and flawless timing, the Zenyatta launched a volley of orbs into Tracer’s path before she’d even made her move, such that when she dashed out she was met instantly with the killing blow.
