LiNkzr for Houston Outlaws was a powerhouse player on Widowmaker this week in the Overwatch League against the Shanghai Dragons and Seoul Dynasty on Thursday. He was able to get player of the day on alongside DreamKazper from Boston Uprising with praise for his sniping skills being a huge reason why Dynasty wasn’t able to make the playoffs at the end of stage two.
While against Seoul Dynasty, he had 34 final blows with the majority at 24 being headshots as Widow. Overall he had over 22,000 damage on the hero with a whopping 20.31% critical accuracy, meaning over a fifth of the time he shot her gun he was landing a critical headshot.
In the clips above and below we can see some examples of his excellent tracking skills. He is extremely good at anticipating enemies arriving from blindspots and finishing off weaker enemies at close range with pin-point accuracy.
We also got to see some great Zarya plays when he pulled her out at the end of the Outlaws defense on King’s Row, as he takes out enemy after enemy with perfect tracking while fully charged to hold the point.
LiNkzr’s critical hit accuracy on Widowmaker is hard to match, as Fleta who is considered to be one of, if not the best Widow player in the league was able to get just over 16% on Friday’s match against Florida Mayhem. If he continues holding these impressive numbers then he might just dethrone Fleta as the most respected Widowmaker player in the league.
