In Overwatch's Halloween-themed "Junkenstein's Revenge" mode, boss characters get stylish entrances that are one part Play Of The Game and one part Too Many Cooks. Naturally, players have found a way to screw with them.

This post originally ran on October 14, 2016. It's been updated with new photobombs from the 2017 version of Junkenstein's Revenge.

When the camera zooms in, the action doesn't stop. Overwatch players have taken to timing their emotes just right, resulting in some phenomenal photobombs.

2017 Photobombs

After a year of new heroes, skins, and emotes, Overwatch photobombing technology has advanced to a degree that simple-minded Hallowannabes from 2016 never could've predicted. Check out this year's crop.

Here's Soldaku with a foot from off-screen that would make Monty Python proud:

And finally, FailingToDodge figured out that you can just sleep dart everybody the second they appear, resulting in some magnificent anti-climaxes:

Have you taken up the time-honored art of photobombing? Let's see your best.


    Yep, I've been doing it as well. Getting the timing is really tricky, not as hard as getting the right position though. But I did discover that right as they're being announced, their position has an invisible wall around them. Good way to line up.
    Also try and avoid being targeted by Bombadiers, they will always knock you out of position.

    Also, Hanzo is capable of jumping up to the balcony area where Junkenstein is, so you can get some photobombs there as well.
