Rollerblading healer hero Lucio is one of my favorite characters to play in Overwatch. The simple act of skating around feels great, especially when you’re riding walls like gravity’s just another rail ripe for grinding. This guy, though, he’s turned it into an art form.


Jamie Allegro sticks to walls like goddamn Spider-Man. Watch him float around Volskaya Industries for two minutes:

I have no doubt that Allegro was better than any of us at playing The Floor Is Lava in preschool.


He’s also done King’s Row:

I, too, am loving this.

This reminds me a lot of surfing in Counter-Strike. Same goal of constant momentum-based motion, and it requires a similarly deceptive amount of technique to pull off. I wonder if maps tailored to this will become A Thing in Overwatch like they are in Counter-Strike? Unless Blizzard decides to spearhead it, that would require custom map-making or mod tools. I suppose we’ll see. Overwatch has been excellent so far, and the future’s wide open.
