October 24th, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. by Sebastian Glanzer – giving birth to children and sexually molesting women: that is the motto of some matches in a game mode in Overwatch 2. The custom modes of the Blizzard shooter make this possible.
In addition to the 5v5 Arcade Mode, Blizzard developers are also giving Overwatch 2 players the freedom to create their own games with custom rules in Custom Mode. The custom games lead to fun creations like Genji Ball, where Genjis throw bullets like dodgeball, or simple modes where kills can only be made by punching.
However, among the custom games are some very strange matches that Blizzard should ban or at least regulate – such as the Sexual Harassment Simulator. The name sounds bad enough, but what else players do in this mode is even more repulsive than expected.
Overwatchs Sexual Harassment Simulator
“Make friends, live a normal life and give birth to a child” says the game description of the mode, which appears again and again in Overwatch 2’s costume mode. The “goal” of the game is to create many female characters, while other male characters stun them with, for example, heroes like Cassidy, and then teabag – i.e. crouch up and down on the female hero’s body. The title of the sexual harassment simulator reveals what this is supposed to imply…
In fact, having children is part of it. Female characters pose on the floor while another character emote brings out an item and celebrates the birth of the child in a role-playing moment. It is obvious that something else should be implied after the teabagging. Twitter users like Lynn_McGoo are warning parents against letting their kids play these costume games. In some countries, Overwatch is 12+.
The mother writes that her son discovered the game mode, but he immediately realized that it was something bad and left the game. Her tweet was then followed by Twitch-Streamer Limmy retweeted. He added screenshots from “Sexual Harassment Simulator”. One of the screenshots showed the game in the Popular section of the custom game browser, another showed 13 active lobbies with 125 players. Using the “report” button, these lobbies can be reported to Blizzard, which should result in their closure.

McDonald’s and Blizzard are working together. An epic hero skin is now waiting in the McMenu. Unfortunately, that doesn’t apply in Germany 🙁
The Overwatch community seems to be particularly interested in roleplaying with female characters, as was shown again after the launch of Overwatch 2 on relevant adult sites. In a game that is partially from 12 years, something like that should have no place. What do you think?
