Vansquad is a 32 year old with a regular day job in South Korea, but during his free time he strikes fear in the hearts of Overwatch pros.
In a post on the Competitive Overwatch subreddit today, Redditor Limelatte shared Vansquad’s well-earned infamy with the rest of the world, compiling a list of videos of that show off Vansquad’s deadly aim with McCree and Widowmaker against South Korea’s top Overwatch pros. His ability to land headshots with McCree and Widowmaker is unparalleled.
This video shows Vansquad scaring two pro players in competitive matches:
The pros — former Lunatic-Hai player Lee Tae Jun and RunAway player Kim “Haksal” Hyo Jong — understandably freak out when they see Vansquad peaking around corners to rain down headshot after headshot on them and their teammates. When they spot Vansquad playing as Widowmaker on Hollywood early on in the video, the whole team comes together to shut him down.
In another video compilation that Limelatte shared, Vansquad proves his skills in 1v1 combat against a handful of the best Overwatch players in South Korea.
The crazy thing about Vansquad, who is pretty well-known in the South Korean Overwatch scene at this point, is that he got this good in his free time. Limelatte said Vansquad has been approached by pro teams but has declined their offers. He doesn’t even stream.
According to Limelatte, Vansquad just wants to live a normal life. A normal life of working during the day and then blowing off steam by decimating the best Overwatch players in the world.
