Trivia for McCree[]

I don't know if there's been discussion for a Trivia section with these pages but I think it's a fun bit of trivia that Jesse McCree stole his name from a Blizzard employee Alphalance (talk) 19:04, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

It would need a source.--Hawki (talk) 22:43, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

No counters for McCree?[]

Seriously, is he that good? Zarya can counter most of his moves with a simple barrier.

  • From what I gather, Zarya is the most effective, as she can abuse his usual combo to get a massive charge and then reduce him to cinders. McCree is mostly effective at short range, as his Flashbang has about 5m reach and Fan has a huge spread, on top of that he has minimal mobility, so really, anything that can outrange and outmaneuver him should work. Pharah or Widow come to mind. --Krupam (talk)--

Fan the Hammer's new damage.[]

Fan the Hammer's new damage is 22.5 ~ 45 per bullet (135 ~ 270 total)

Calculated and tested.

Damage was 35 ~ 70 before patch.


35 is 50% of 70

so now

22.5 is 50% of 45

45 x 6 = 270

22.5 x 6 = 135



Each bullet damages slightly less than 25 and it took 9 shots to kill a 200 hp enemy.

If the calculations are correct then 9 bullets does 202.5 damage.

Deadlock Affiliation[]

McCree also has affiliation with the deadlock gang as their former leader — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

There isn't really anything indicating that he was the leader. He was at least 17 years old when he was recruited into Overwatch, so it's unlikely that he would have held such a position at that young age. - TheModster (talk) 20:45, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Syntax Error on Page[]


It seems that there is a syntax error at line 162, where

[[File:ReyesMcCreeMoiraGenji.jpg|thumb|McCree, Reyes, and [[Genji]] meet with [[Moira O'Deorain]]

should be

[[File:ReyesMcCreeMoiraGenji.jpg|thumb|McCree, Reyes, and [[Genji]] meet with [[Moira O'Deorain]]]]

However, as the page is protected, I can't change it.

This has been fixed. Thanks for pointing it out! --Alianin (talk) 15:29, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
