Overwatch’s new hero IS Hammond but he’s not what people expected… he’s a HAMSTER IN A BALL
- Blizzard revealed the 28th Overwatch hero is a Hamster in a weaponized ball
- Many fans correctly guessed that the hero would be Winston’s friend, Hammond
- However, many assumed that Hammond would also be a monkey like Winston
Blizzard have been teasing the latest Overwatch hero all week with fans running wild with different theories. Many rightly guessed that the next hero would be Hammond but he isn’t quite what we expected.
It turns out, Winston’s creature friend from outer space isn’t actually a monkey but rather he’s a hamster who drives around a heavily weaponized, robotic ball… we’re not making this up.
Previous hints on the reworked Lunar Colony map suggested that Hammond attached his ball to Winston’s ship and followed him to Earth but nobody expected that would be a hamster.

Nobody, that is, apart from Reddit user stmaurer who correctly predicted Hammond after picking up on small hints such as nibble marks in his room on Lunar Colony and the obvious moving around in a ball.
We don’t yet know how Hammond will play but it appears he will move around in the ball with four mechanical legs but has the ability to roll around at high speeds. We assume he’ll also be able to do that in-game and will most likely have some sort of knockback or stun effect.

He could also be a DPS hero or an off-tank like D.Va with two large guns either side of the ball. We already have D.Va who moves around in a robotic creation but we probably won’t be able to play as Hammond out of the ball – as much as we’d love to.
We also don’t know how storywise, Hammond got his paws on such powerful weaponry but he does link to the mysterious poster on Junkertown which suggest he regularly competes in the Queen’s gladiator battles.
It won’t be long before Hammond is playable on the PTR but for now we can only theorize and wonder. He’s a freaking hamster so anything is possible at this point.
