Funny Overwatch 2 Clip Shows Genius Way To Counter Cassidy’s Ultimate as Soldier 76

For players tired of being hit by Cassidy’s High Noon, a Soldier 76 player finds a perfect way to dodge this Ultimate ability in Overwatch 2.

With the first beta for Overwatch 2 live now, players are having a lot of fun testing out the major hero reworks and determining new approaches to the game’s team fights. However, some Overwatch 2 players are also finding fun interactions between the heroes, and one should prove especially entertaining to Cassidy and Soldier 76 fans.

The moment in question is an Ultimate counter, which anyone that has played Overwatch will know is incredibly important. However, it is not as effective as Genji’s ability to deflect Bastion’s Artillery Strike back at him, as Soldier 76 is not damaging or killing the enemy Cassidy. Instead, they are simply dodging the outlaw’s Deadeye ability, but they are doing so in a hilarious way. For those interested, a specific Soldier 76 emote needs to be used at the right time to successfully escape.


The callout for Deadeye is as iconic as it gets, as Cassidy shouting “it’s High Noon” has been an Overwatch meme since the original game first launched. As such, players often know to get into cover as soon as they hear this dialogue, though Reddit user FatCosmos had a different approach. As soon as the enemy Cassidy’s Deadeye was activated, the Redditor activated Soldier 76’s pushups emote. Funnily enough, dropping down to the ground saved their life, as they were just out of Cassidy’s reach.

When Deadeye is activated, Cassidy needs a few seconds to lock onto enemies – with the time needed for this lock-on changing depending on the health of his foes. With the lock-on requiring Cassidy to maintain a clear shot on an enemy, breaking that line of sight will allow a player to dodge the Ultimate and live to fight another day. Clearly, FatCosmos was very aware of their surroundings, as they knew that going probe on the hill behind the Route 66 gas station would be enough for them to survive.

Seeing the Soldier 76 player doing some carefree pushups while the Sojourn and Ana that were right behind him are killed is hilarious. After surviving Cassidy’s deadliest move, the Soldier 76 was free to get back into the fight. With their team’s Mercy also surviving and successfully pulling off a resurrection, FatCosmos has a good chance to win the battle due to their cleverness. Obviously, this counter requires some very specific placement and good timing to pull off, but it makes for a very funny moment that many gamers on Reddit appreciated.

Though plenty are focusing on how good Orisa is in Overwatch 2 or how much more fun Doomfist is to play, it is nice to see some fun beta moments happening with the other heroes. With the first phase of the beta set to last a few more weeks, many more memorable clips will likely appear online.

Overwatch 2 is currently in development.
