This Baptiste Trick In Overwatch Is A Must-Learn
This trick gives the hero the much-needed mobility in the game. Blizzard

This simple Baptiste trick in Overwatch is all about timing his charged-up jump. But in order for it to be successful, you have to do the latter while the hero’s Immortality Field drone is deployed in the air. As long as it is done right, the support character can easily land on top of the drone and jump again to reach a much greater distance.

The footage of the move can be seen on Reddit and is courtesy of user delettebrigitte. “It's not at all practical but could be cool for sniper spots/memes,” the poster said

The video further shows a Doomfist player presumed to be the aforementioned user observing how Baptiste throws the drone on the Illios map right before he charges up a jump. From there, he surprisingly makes a move by landing straight on the drone.

It cannot be denied that this is one of the coolest moves out there. Fans and players alike will definitely try to do it on their own. However, you cannot deny the fact that it has its own drawbacks. For starters, Baptiste’s Immortality Field drone in Overwatch is only capable of granting immortality to his allies below it, not above it. And while the hero can just stand on the drone, his teammates are unlikely to obtain any benefit from the skill. As a result, they will find themselves vulnerable to attacks courtesy of Hanzos and Widowmakers, among others.

But hey, there is also another massive flaw in this trick, and most Overwatch players on Reddit pointed it out as well. Apparently, the tech can only work in free for all. This means the trick will not really work in actual matches. In the comments, a user expressed his idea on why some objects tend to behave differently from others when it comes to free for all matches.

“I think it has something to do with there being no teams in FFA. Deployables on the enemy team are solid and can't be walked through while you can pass through deployables from your team. I'm guessing FFA is treating them like they are from the enemy team,” SchrodingersJew commented.
