Perhaps the Best Way to Play Overwatch's Doomfist Is Using a Home-Made Gauntlet
Recently, Overwatch announced the new hero Doomfist, his strong mechanical arm left a very deep impression to the players. So how can we really master this cool new hero? Perhaps use your own doomfist gauntlet to operate this game character. A reddit user named ATwerkinYoshi, shared his Doomfist demo video. And, surprisingly, he actually made a doomfist gauntlet, from the video can be seen, his different moves are corresponding to the characters in the game skills. “Throw a punch, punch in game. Uppercut, uppercut in game! Flail around and you might do some weird combo” he said in the reddit, “Motion controls still needs fine-tuning, but since Doomfist is in PTR, and I have time to perfect it. For a day work, I think it turned out great!”
Actually ,his Doomfist Gauntlet is a modified boxing glove，as shown in the figure, The white wire activates the primary fire, green wire activates the ULT, and the yellow wire activates jump. His fingers on the inside of the gloves can access the wires. The Wii-mote handled all motion controls and he had a nunchuck for aiming. And it only took around 4 or so hours to get the motion controls to function correctly. That was pretty impressed. Although the glove looks simple, but can be seen from the video, the way to experience the new heroes definitely a fun and possibly even effective way to play the game, some reddit user comments him: “Now all you need is a VR headset, and an unaware older lady.”
It’s not the first time ATwerkinYoshi made such a weird controller; he even played Dark Souls 3 with a Rock Band drum controller before. Of course this glove is much cooler, but it may not suit for every player, because after a few hours of playing ,he said his arms were dead .And forget to mention, he use to do MMA.
Now let’s check out the whole video：
