Tell Us What Ridiculous Overwatch Controllers To Make

Overwatch's Dva

Sometimes, a keyboard doesn't cut it. Sometimes, a sterile console controller doesn't really capture the true undertones of a video game character. For example, I bet a screaming blender controller would better put me in touch with Overwatch's Genji. For McCree, maybe a couple Snap Dragons and a water gun.

Readers, we need your help. Tell us what stupid, weird Overwatch controllers to engineer.

Last year, streamer Rudeism came up with some crazy Overwatch controllers. Using a Makey-Makey, he manoeuvred Dva with flight sticks. He rigged up a Nerf Bow to control Hanzo and, in an inspired feat of fandom, manoeuvred Winston solely with a dozen bananas. Following his stead were others who, inspired by his whimsical approach to Overwatch, came up with their own ridiculous controllers.

We, too, are inspired, and Rudeism has given us his blessing to run with it. We're planning on making a few of our own ridiculous Overwatch controllers with Makey Makeys we now own. In the comments, tell us what original, stupid Overwatch controllers you want to see. Get crazy. (Warning: We don't have room to control Roadhog with a fishing pole.)


    Control Genji by mashing your face into the keyboard and throwing your mouse repeatedly against a wall. This is how every single one of my teammates that picks Genji plays already.

    Sombra: 2 teleporter pads. You play at one and then when you teleport in-game, the first one powers down and the second (in a different room?, or you literally turn around 180 degrees?) powers up and you have to play at that pad.

    One of those Tony Hawks Ride skateboards with TWO Powergloves for Lucio.

    Lean in a direction to move, thrusting right hand shoots his gun, left hand up for jump and hold it up for wall ride.
    Index fingers on either hand switch modes between healing and speed. Middle finger taunts (heh) and raise your hands in the air like you just don't care to break it down.
