Next is Mi Yeti HuntA unique, 5v1 raid brawler. The yeti steals food from the local village, and it’s up to a team of five Mei players to set traps and freeze the raging yeti – but be careful! If he stole too much meat, he would go into a rage and could easily finish off the enemy team. Deploy carefully, place your traps, and catch the Yeti!
finally, Freeze defrosting is Overwatch 2’s version of Freeze Tag, where the goal is to freeze all opponents by eliminating them while also getting your teammates back in the game by thawing them. No game is truly complete unless you make sure each of your opponents is calm to the core in this fast-paced elimination game mode.”
