Funny Hanzo Player Adds Hype Music to Their Overwatch 2 Play of the Game

A Hanzo player predicted the Play of the Game would highlight their skill at the end of an Overwatch 2 match, so they decided to play some music to hype this moment, but while the Play of the Game did feature a key Hanzo play, it didn’t exactly go as planned. Play of the Game is a specific highlight at the end of each Overwatch 2 game that is supposed to showcase to all players the most game-changing moment in a match, often showing multiple kills or a life-saving action.

Hanzo is one of the most popular heroes in Overwatch 2 Season 4, often stealing the spotlight and killing his enemies from afar. Unlike other characters from Blizzard’s FPS, Hanzo doesn’t need anyone to be efficient. He has the ability to climb up walls to take a better position to aim at his enemies, with his Sonic Arrow revealing their position even behind walls. Hanzo can kill his opponents either with classic shots or with his Storm Arrows, and his ultimate ability Dragonstrike can wipe out an entire team, especially if paired with another ultimate such as Zarya’s Graviton Surge.

A player known as Gewth on Reddit shared a funny extract from their latest Overwatch 2 match, where their teammate playing Hanzo started playing hype music in the moments leading to the introduction of the game’s Play of the Game. Hanzo used the voice chat feature of Overwatch 2 to play MDK’s Fingerdash and build up hype prior to the Play of the Game highlight, which happened to feature their own action in the game. However, despite this hype, the Play of the Game wasn’t as exciting as the music led to believe, as Hanzo failed to land most of his shots, resulting in a below-average sequence but with an epic music background.

Overwatch 2 players were amused to see the contrast between the hype music and the poor performances highlighted in the Play of the Game video. Having a teammate blast music through the voice chat is usually a painful moment for Overwatch 2 players, but building hype just before the Play of the Game reveal was a nice addition resulting in a funny moment. Some players still noted that something felt wrong about the Overwatch 2 Play of the Game system, as this highlight was not good enough to be featured at the end of the game, and if it was really the best moment from the entire match, it meant the overall quality of this face off wasn’t great.

Players regularly share their Overwatch 2 highlights on social media, either to showcase their skills to other players or to make fun of moments that didn’t exactly go as planned. A funny clip even revealed what the Overwatch 2 Play of the Game looked like in an empty match, which is as exciting as it could get.

Overwatch 2 is out on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
