Sombra emote bug helps her avoid damage from Reaper’s Death Blossom

Or, maybe it’s a feature?

Blizzard Entertainment

Overwatch’s newest emotes are already a few weeks old, but it seems like there might be some bugs that need to be worked out. As brought up by Reddit user andygmb in a post on the Overwatch subreddit, Sombra doesn’t take damage from Reaper’s Death Blossom while using her Marionette emote.

Whether this bug happens every time, or just on occasion is still unknown, but it’s rare that a bug with a cosmetic lines up so perfectly with the cosmetic itself. In her emote, Sombra moves around a marionette of Reaper before laughing and tossing it away. While it’s possible that this emote affects other abilities in the game, the ultimate of the character she’s holding a puppet of is almost too good to be just a bug.

Either way, it’s unlikely that this interaction will stay in the game for long, and this post will be updated as soon as Blizzard makes a change.
