Heroes Of The Storm Has Some Great 420 No Scope Moments

Sgt. Hammer is Heroes of the Storm’s version of the classic siege tank unit from StarCraft. Unlike the original piece of Terran artillery, Hammer can fire a giant rocket across the map. This makes for some excellent “skill shot” moments in Blizzard’s up-and-coming MOBA.

I put “skill shot” in “scare quotes” because I’m not convinced this excellent Sgt. Hammer attack captured by YouTuber DanTheSupreme (via Reddit) actually took serious skill to pull off. But I’ll be honest: if I was the one who did it, I’d probably be sounding a very different tune.

You’ve gotta admire the way Hammer’s super-rocket takes out Murky:

...and then continues onward to take out Murky’s eggs:

Murky’s eggs are the special tool that gives the frog-like Heroes character the incredibly handy ability to respawn at locations other than the main base during a game, meaning he can jump right back into battle after dying. So killing Murky and taking his eggs out with a single shot? It’s like Hammer was saying “nope” to any attempt at a comeback by lining up a perfect shot.

Kudos to YouTuber zorberema for turning this devastating moment into the 420 No Scope montage it was destined to become:

I’m calling it now: Sgt. Hammer’s giant rocket attack is gonna be the first genuine troll move once Heroes of the Storm comes out next month.

That was fantastic. Also, Murky is probably one of the most underrated heroes due to how many people suck so hard when they play with him. He is soooo good when you play with a proper team! Octo is the counter to so many “OP” heroes and comps (*cough*Illidan*cough*).
