The over-sized hamster from the Moon has arrived on Earth, taken the Junkertown gladiatorial coliseum by storm, and has now joined the official Overwatch roster.
In a new patch that went live earlier this morning, Hammond the hamster made his way out of the PTR and into the main game. The new Tank is playable in QuickPlay and Arcade game modes, but we’ll have to wait at least a couple weeks before he hits Competitive mode, similar to the new and improved Symmetra.
Don’t anger the hamster.

Hammond is a highly mobile Tank character that will fit right in to the current Dive meta. His Ball Mode and Grappling Claw give him unparalleled mobility on the battlefield, and it will definitely be interesting to see how players use him to disrupt and zone in new and different ways.
You can download the patch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
