'Overwatch' Uprising Exploit Glitch: This bug prevents Omnics from spawning


The new Overwatch Uprising mode is tough — especially once you venture into any difficulty mode that isn't "normal." So, naturally, players are looking for strategies to come out on top. 

However, one strategy that's emerged appears to exploit a pretty hefty glitch that prevents Omnics from spawning for an entire section of the match.

Overwatch Uprising glitch prevents Omnics from spawning

According to a thread on Reddit, if a player stands near the giant, metal door the payload eventually blasts through, enemy Omnics won't spawn during the prior phase where players have to escort it there.

Here's a video of the bug in action, showing players just casually escorting the payload down an empty street, no Omnics in sight.

It doesn't appear that Blizzard has commented publicly on this exploit yet — but, like the old Mei ice wall glitch, Blizzard will likely start banning players who are found to have exploited it.

You've been warned.
