Wrecking Ball is a tank character who will be familiar to Overwatch players as Hammond, aka "Specimen 8". And so, is able to command and fit comfortably inside a large wrecking ball of a tank. This shield makes him incredibly hard to kill when he bulldozes into the fray and, once he starts to get low on health, also provides him the endurance to escape.

Here's a look at Wrecking Ball's abilities and their descriptions... Wrecking Ball's Piledriver and Roll abilities make him a great hero to attack the back line, as well as disrupt the front lines of any enemy team. Adorable, but not to be underestimated, Wrecking Ball has an ultimate move called "Minefield", which is exactly as it sounds. "He doesn't speak any human languages, but his mech automatically translates his voice in a fittingly menacing tone", according to Blizzard.

Hammond was the name given to one of the test subjects at the Horizon Lunar colony, who escaped his cage ahead of the colony's collapse.

Wrecking Ball is now being tested in the PTR. However, Hammond's escape pod detached on their way to Earth, and since landing in Junkertown has spent his time exploring our planet. He upgraded that pod into a unsafe, sturdy mech. Blizzard offhandedly mentioned Hammond in documents promoting the Lunar Colony map that came out a year ago.

Overwatch teased its next hero on its Twitter account today with a short video.

Blizzard seems to have unveiled a brand new champion for Overwatch and it's, well... it's a robot hamster ball.

Of course, the hamster wouldn't be the first animal character in Overwatch, but this is by far the strangest one so far. With his vast intellect, Hammond has built an armor-plated hamster ball complete with four assault cannons, a grappling hook, proximity mines, and a temporary shield. "Overwatch" and confirmed the hero as well as it's name as Wrecking Ball (Hammond).
