In it, he completely changed the game’s interface from Valve, added the commentator’s voice and character replicas. The author turned all grenades, weapons and a bomb with a mine clearance kit into special skills of Overwatch heroes. Sight mode on sniper rifles has also become an ability. In addition, all the characters received the superpower Infrasrenia. It is used by the Fatal Widow in Overwatch to see enemies through walls.
