After watching a lot of his gameplay, these shouldn't be too bad.

Guess Destiny 2 and Dying Light have to wait until these are done.

Yeah just watched a video of his ult, 3 killing blows shouldn't be a problem.

I'm glad they made the achievements reasonable for Sigma and not something dumb like get 4+ killing blows or catch 6 in your ult. These seem actually doable smile

I played like a maniac for a year or so, but Overwatch bored me to death. Hope they make a new game mode which will ressurect the game, otherwise I don't plan on coming back.
TRUEACHIEVEMENTS! Please add notifications about a reply, because I NEVER got my replies, so I probably missed like 100.

As much as I hate a lot of the achievements in this game, I should be able to get these done.

The one based on his Ultimate should be easy if you’re communicating, one game I played just now the player should’ve got it cause I tossed a Junkrat mine into the enemies as they came down. Boom.

Sigma seems fun, being able to deploy, cancel then redeploy the shield with no cooldown is petty strong, you can boss a Pharah around with it in highly amusing fashion.

The second cheevo might be harder, 350 is a fair amount of damage to absorb given how long that ability runs for.

It might be a bit more annoying now to go for character-specific achievements since they've added the role queue. As if two players choose before you a character from a specific role; tank, healer, etc, then your locked out from the roles that's been filled. :/

Yeah. In QP once the roles are locked in, only the two tanks can trade Sigma. Everyone else has to wait until next game to lock in tanks. Apparently Blizzard is saying that it’s a bug that players aren’t able to trade roles in QP, though, so that could be fixed soon.

Even on day one, everyone playing is just so accustomed to not firing into a shield block move. In the games I played, soon as you put up the kinetic grasp, everyone just backs off like Genjis sword block. I thought I might get it when a reaper landed right beside into his Ult & I blocked the whole thing, but that wasn't enough. I feel there is maybe a handful of ults that would work like BOB, Roadhog, powered up orisa, Pharah.

Nor was the game telling me I got a quadruple kill when I hit the ult good enough to pop the cheevo.

I quite like Sigma so far. His shield isn't too OP as long as you know who his counters are. Blocking someones Ult from a distance with it is also highly amusing.

Reapers Ult does 510 total damage so I don't think he deals enough individual damage for it to count.

As you say though, Roadhog, Pharah & Ashe seem the obvious choices because the damage is constant and concentrated, but Hanzo, Junkrat and D.va could also work if you are close enough as they do MASSIVE damage if you are at ground zero when they Ult.

Pretty much all of the absorb/deal damage achievements are ridiculous in practice though.

The quickplay role lock is defo a bug, my brother asked them directly on Twitter and they confirmed. Hope that's fixed by tonight, it killed Quickplay for me yesterday.

Role lock isn’t meant to be in quick play until September 1st, but it is intended that it will be there.

I’m not so sure it makes the character specific ones harder though, you’re only competing with one other player to pick the character you want instead of five.

I got the absorb one against a Roadhog using his ult directly at me. I only think projectile type stuff like bullets will be absorbed, so something like Dva's ult won't.

Sigma's ult I've got close with two squishy's though his ult takes a while to charge so yeah, bit annoying (getting horrible flashbacks of trying to do Doomfist's with his small, predictable circle *shudder*).
