Overwatch players all float on alright in these great low gravity moments

The latest Overwatch patch has players feeling very light on their feet. Yes, low gravity has arrived in the regular game. There are two ways to experience this mode. First, you can duck through the airlocks on the new Horizon Lunar Colony map in any game mode and bounce around on the moon. Second, the Arcade has added a game mode for regular 6v6 matches in low gravity. 

Overwatch’s players are smart and hilarious people, so naturally they’ve found some memorable moments in goofing around in low gravity. Here are some choice examples.
