Overwatch 2 continues to issue issue after issue with the latest issue Makes icy damage-dealing Mei completely unplayable Due to a “critical issue” with the Ice Wall ability. Well, Blizzard might also want to look into the hero shooter’s newest support character, Kiriko, as he can apparently only block headshot damage. [checks notes] looking at the sky.

Kiriko is a ninja healer who uses kunai. leaked At the beginning of September. Previously locked in the back Overwatch 2The battle pass Blizzard has had since chose to give kunoichi for free after some pretty loud criticism of the developer’s initial decision. Although he’s a pretty squishy hero with only 200 health points, he can do solid damage and has a kit that’s perfectly suited for buffing his teammates. In other words, it’s not as passive a healer as Baptiste or Mercy, but you probably don’t want it to attack enemy fronts like Brigitte or Zenyatta. That may change, however, given an exploit discovered by Twitch streamer Flats.

a partner more observations League’s Florida Mayhem, Flats tweeted a video on November 15 of Kiriko looking at the sun, blocking headshot damage with her arm. The Circles fired several times at an opposing Kiriko with Widowmaker, but the bullets barely grazed the ninja’s seemingly indestructible arm, allowing him to recover immediately. Flats eventually killed Kiriko with a single headshot, but only after positioning himself at just the right angle and saying you had to get behind him “to hit the back of Kiriko’s head”. Who knew looking at the sky would save you from death?

What seems to happen here is that when he looks up, the dome of Kiriko’s arm gets in front of his hitbox, affecting his damage from headshots.
