HANAMURA HANAMURA SHOWDOWN SHOWDOWN

Earth’s most advanced heroes are bringing a crisis into the Nexus. The picturesque temples of Hanamura have become a battleground; rolling payloads clash and missiles fly from everywhere at once. Will you stand against the onslaught—or be the onslaught?

New Battleground

Hanamura

Lock horns with the opposing team as you guide your payload to the perfect position, then watch it transform into a cannon and blast away at the enemy’s core. But be wary—your opponents will be trying to do the same to you, and the payloads are on a collision course.

New Battleground

Hanamura

Features

Both teams’ payloads travel towards the enemy core. Stand near yours to push it!

When your payload reaches a destination, it’ll launch projectiles at the enemy core.

Fight near enemy payloads to halt or reverse their momentum.

New Brawls

Checkpoint: Hanamura

In this single payload tug-of-war, one team attacks, driving their payload directly into the enemy core to achieve victory, and another team defends, fighting back the attackers to delay their approach. Both sides need to be quick—the clock’s ticking.

Special Delivery

A dual-payload scrum that makes every player Tracer with the Total Recall talent and auto-exploding Pulse Bombs. Eliminating one of your opponents deals direct damage to the enemy core—using a Pulse Bomb for a killing blow deals even more!
