Overwatch 2 Player Discovers Unexpected Train Interaction on Busan Map

An Overwatch 2 player has discovered an unusual interaction with the train on the Busan map after years of playing the game. The Busan map, originally introduced in 2018, has been brought back in Overwatch 2, and this new clip reveals a surprising and potentially beneficial use of its train.

Before the release of Overwatch 2, the original game featured 32 maps with various objectives such as Assault, Escort, and Hybrid. It also had 31 heroes, and the sequel has been steadily expanding this roster, with the latest addition being Venture. When Overwatch 2 launched, some classic maps were initially absent, but Blizzard has been reintroducing them, like Hanamura, which became Hanaoka in April. Among these updated maps is Busan, which includes an unusual train interaction that may be advantageous for some players.

Reddit user TheRealOWFreqE recently shared a clip showcasing their experience on the Overwatch 2 Busan map. The video starts from the perspective of Zarya, who uses her bubble ability on an erratically moving Lucio as they approach the capture point. It then switches to Lucio's point of view, showing him healing allies and battling enemies on the point. As Lucio avoids an enemy Moira's Ultimate ability, he jumps backward and makes contact with a passing train at just the right moment. This interaction causes Lucio to wall-ride the train, propelling him towards the enemy team at the same speed as the train.

How Did Lucio Achieve His Speedy Maneuvers?

Lucio can wall-run by holding the jump button while approaching walls, allowing him to run along the train wall with precise timing as it speeds past the capture point. This results in the Overwatch 2 Support hero moving rapidly in both directions. Although Busan may not always appear in the standard map rotation, it is available in Custom game modes and has been upgraded for Overwatch 2. TheRealOWFreqE, who has played Overwatch for eight years, had never seen a maneuver like this before. While it was a flashy move, it is unclear whether it confused the enemy team or led to a victory for Lucio's squad.

Without the train's timely pass, Lucio might have simply jumped off the map to his death. It remains unclear why Lucio was propelled in two directions, but it seems related to the train's momentum. As Blizzard continues to update Overwatch 2, this unique Lucio interaction with the train might be refined in a future patch.
