Overwatch is an expansive world where anyone (or anything) can become a hero or a villain. The team over at Activision/Blizzard showed a teaser of a metal ball rolling across an alleyway. Today we see that the metal ball is actually a mech that is controlled by a HAMSTER!?

Now we already have Winston, a test subject gorilla with a Tesla Cannon, so why is anyone surprised that a hamster named Hammond could be a new hero for Overwatch? The internet never ceases to amaze me with their outrage. Take a look at some of the tweets below.

I’m still not sure where all of the outrage is coming from. Either you will play with the hero or not. I don’t think Blizzard is losing a lick of sleep over how people feel about Hammond.
