Illustration for article titled Three Anas Can Get An iOverwatch/i Player Kicked From A Match

Overwatch’s new sniper mom hero Ana, it turns out, has secret trolling capacities.


Ana’s “Sleep Dart,” which makes enemies unconscious for a few seconds, can actually render a player inactive and kicked from the game. If you collect three Anas around an enemy and keep that enemy constantly asleep, that player will get removed from a match. You’ll need three, since two Anas can’t maintain a perma-sleep considering the dart’s cooldown time.

A video of this was posted today on Reddit. Three friends and I confirmed the mechanic in a custom game.

This perma-sleep hack is hard to pull off in Quick Play, since enemies will be going after the trolling Anas. Additionally, it’s impossible in Competitive Mode—there’s a one hero limit. It doesn’t seem like there needs to be any sort of change made to Overwatch, but it is pretty funny to watch.
