Many Overwatch players have had the opportunity to master their roles since the game began over six years ago. Reinhardt, for example, is a tank that can be especially deadly when correctly used. One Overwatch player recently shared a video of a perfectly used Earthshatter.
Top-notch Reinhardt plays come in two forms: Earthshatters and Pins. While Fire Strike is a decent way to build Ult charge, and Reinhardts hammer swings do a decent amount of damage, only these two abilities are the real game changers.
ArkhamGeyser and his colleagues combined these two deadly abilities perfectly while playing on Temple of Anubis. While defending the first point, the Reinhardt notices the enemy team line up in the large health pack room. After a few hammers swings, they quickly use Earthshatter, with the enemy Rein failing to block it. From there, ArkhamGeyser proceeds to wipe out the enemy team.
Ashe was killed as a result of the damage suffered by the Shatter itself, while ArkhamGeyser landed a game changing pin on the enemy Rein. Both healers, Baptiste and Zenyatta, were killed with the same swing, completing the two characters before they can regroup and displaying their expertise with Reinhardt's kit.
Since then, this post has been highly praised on Reddit, with over 1,500 upvotes, while others commented on how the opposing team reacted to the play with her Nanoboost. Though the Reinhardt and Ana's actions are remarkable, the Ana would not have picked up all six kills.
Clips like this should only become more common for new players who want to master Reinhardt, especially since the free-to-play model in Overwatch 2 is expected to broaden the player base.
Overwatch is now available on PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
