Blizzard Offers a “Fair Warning” to Those Exploiting the Lucioball Character Bug

Lucioball, Overwatch, Blizzard

Cheaters? Stop it.

To celebrate the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Blizzard released a brand new, albeit temporary game mode to Overwatch last week, known as Lucioball.

Alas, it’s been less than a week and already players have found and capitalized upon a pretty game-breaking glitch, in which they can select any character in the hero roster and use their weapons to take out the opposing team, who are utterly vulnerable playing as Lucio devoid of any of his offensive abilities.


Blizzard has officially responded to the problem on the Overwatch Forums, and they promise to be working on a solution.

In a response to a comment on one of the forum’s threads, Overwatch’s Game Director Jeff Kaplan had this to say:

“Apologies for this bug. We’ve attempted to fix it numerous times and have had unrelated issues preventing the fix. We hope to have a fix this week. In the meantime, we are in discussions with our Customer Support group to start taking action against those deliberately using the bug to play heroes other than Lucio. Please do not exploit this bug. Fair warning.”

That fair warning should be taken seriously by any committed Overwatch player, as Blizzard are not averse to outright banning any cheaters or hackers from the game without mercy (pun intended).
