Below is a collection of art and tattoos inspired by the Overwatch character, Wrecking Ball.
I shall keep updating this page whenever I find new art or whenever new information releases about the character.
You can also find the story behind Wrecking Ball along with his abilities, ultimate ability and skins.
In one of the many experiments carried out at Horizon Lunar Colony, animals were given genetic therapy to assess their adaptation to extended periods of habitation on the moon.
As an unexpected side effect, several of them exhibited exceptional growth in physical size and brain function.
While most of the test subjects were gorillas or other primates, there were some exceptions, including a hamster designated Specimen 8, but whom the staff named “Hammond”.
Like the others, Hammond’s intelligence grew.
He demonstrated impressive problem solving skills and adaptability, and he became more curious about the world around him.
Much to the puzzlement and amusement of the scientists, Hammond would frequently escape into different parts of the moon base.
The staff had more trouble keeping track of Hammond than any of the other test subjects, and in at least one case, it was days before he was returned to his holding area.
Though they’d always find him and return him to his cell, they never figured out the true purpose behind his nightly escapades.
What they didn’t know was that Hammond was busy teaching himself the skills of a mechanic, which would soon come in handy.
Before the base’s fall, Hammond escaped from his cage.
The colony was eventually thrown into chaos when some of the gorillas rose up against the human scientists and took control.
Not all of the animals participated, however, and Specimen 28, taking the name “Winston”, was making a plan to escape to Earth.
Hammond sensed his opportunity, prototyped a basic build plan using toys in his room, then finalized his build onto a blueprint with sticky notes. Ignored in the uprising, he converted an empty fuel pod into a makeshift escape capsule with a claw arm and tether, and secretly hitched it to the bottom Winston’s craft as the gorilla blasted off from Launch Bay 14.
As the two entered Earth’s atmosphere, the tether broke; while Winston landed at Watchpoint: Gibraltar, Hammond landed in a different location: the wasteland of the Australian Outback, on the outskirts of Junkertown.
