Only a day after Overwatch’s Workshop mode left the Public Test Region, it has entered live servers as part of the Overwatch Anniversary 2019 event. But don’t worry, PTR users: any preexisting creations can easily be carried over to live servers, as long as you have a workable code for the mod. Needless to say, some absolutely nutty modifications have come out of the Workshop, and if you haven’t tried them yet, you’re in for a treat.
Taunting trolls got you down? Here’s an easy fix. This Workshop modification causes users to automatically die if they teabag repeatedly. Fire it up with an unsuspecting teabag-loving friend to see them face the sweet retribution they deserve.
Avengers fans are sure to be pleased by this one. In this unique mode, you can collect three Infinity Stones scattered around the map in order to gain a new shift ability that allows you to instantly kill every member of the enemy with a single snap. Keep in mind that only Doomfist is capable of collecting the stones in this mode.

Anyone who plays Pokémon Trainer in Super Smash Bros. will appreciate this one. The mod allows you to use two heroes’ loadouts at once, with a short cooldown period after you switch. Just imagine the combinations: D.Va and Pharah, Reaper and Wrecking Ball, McCree and Doomfist. The possibilities are endless!
Not even interested in playing Overwatch as a first-person shooter? This is the mode for you. You need to use Wrecking Ball for this mode; like a Katamari (à la Katamari Damacy), he will cause players he touches to stick to him (or in this case, teleport around to follow him) as he rolls around the map.
This one pretty much speaks for itself. If you’re a hardcore Overwatch fan but yearn for the last-one-standing tension of Fortnite or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, use this code to live out your Hunger Games dreams.
Do you enjoy the Winter Olympics? Is Frozone your favorite character from The Incredibles? If so, take this modification for a spin. The mode allows Mei to place sheets of ice on the ground in front of her and skate her way around the battlefield.
This list only scratches the surface; there are hundreds, if not thousands, of Workshop codes out there, with modes ranging from bizarre and nigh-unplayable nightmares to truly brilliant works of game modification. Try these ones out to get a sense of what is possible in the Workshop—then fire it up yourself and add your own creations to the zeitgeist.
