Someone discovered an adorable Hammond Easter egg in Overwatch

Overwatch’s Wrecking Ball will sing to you when an in-game Easter egg is triggered.

The hamster hero Wrecking Ball is perhaps the most adorable part of Overwatch, despite the fact that Blizzard clearly made the wrong call on his name. Now it turns out Hammond has a special little Easter egg all to himself that raises the cute factor even higher. (Thanks to the folks on Reddit who spotted it.)

To trigger the Easter egg, you’ll need to play as Wrecking Ball in the Dorado map. There are a series of bells overlooking a courtyard which can be run using weapons, each one carrying its own tone.

The trick is to ring the bells and create the Overwatch theme song – or to be more specific, the segment that plays after each Play of the Game. If the order is just right, Hammond will sing along with it. Someone help, I am dead.

TIL if you play the OW theme on Dorado’s bells, Hammond will sing along. from r/Overwatch

It doesn’t seem like any other Overwatch heroes sing along so far, but I’m kind of hoping Blizzard will add these retroactively. I can absolutely picture Tracer whistling along, or Reaper quietly humming in the hopes no one will hear.
