Overwatch 2 Lobbies Cooperate To Farm "Ridiculous" Battle For Olympus Challenges
Overwatch 2 undoubtedly has its problems. Sometimes, Heroes are so unbalanced or broken that they need to be removed from the game to get fixed; at other times the in-game rewards trickle in too slowly to get that skin you really want. All of this is compounded by the game's challenges being overtly hard to pull off. These challenges are sometimes so tough that they're impossible to complete even when imbued with godly powers.
The power of Zeus, Athena, or Ares is also not enough to complete some of the challenges. The challenges introduced in Overwatch 2's latest event, Battle for Olympus, are so hard to achieve, that players have started working together to farm them. In an event that is unprecedented in Greek mythology, the gods – or godlike Heroes in this case – have started cooperating in some lobbies in order to make sure everyone can farm some of the challenges.
As can be seen in a Reddit video shared by HuggyOnline, Lucio is mowing down an entire enemy team that's just lining up for him. "Everyone agreed to farm the ridiculous challenges of Olympus," says the post. From the looks of it, the lobby was trying to achieve some sort of multi-kill challenge or an absurdly high kill count.
The comments section, while impressed, appeared to know all too well that Blizzard wouldn't want players cheesing their way past these ridiculous challenges. The highest upvoted comment said, "I can see farm groups happening and Blizzard disabling it somehow."
However, other comments shared alternative methods to help with farming. "Remember self-kills (like jumping off the map) take one off your score. So everyone can farm for the entire 10 minutes if you all work together and hop off the map when [you] need to," said one comment.
Some even reminisced about selfless players they came across in previous events, who helped with completing challenges. "For the Winter Wonderland event’s “Thaw 15 allies in Freezethaw Elimination” challenge, a random Pharah joined my team and just kept blowing herself up so we could thaw her. I still think about that person’s generosity," said another comment.
