surveillance 2 keeps having issue after issue with the latest issue The icy damage dealer Mei is completely unplayable due to a “critical issue” with her Wall of Ice ability. Well, Blizzard might also want to investigate the hero shooter’s newest support character, Kiriko, since apparently she can easily block headshot damage [checks notes] stare at the sky.

Kiriko is a kunai-wielding ninja healer who leaked Beginning of September. Previously locked behind surveillance 2‘s Battle Pass has Blizzard there decided to give away the kunoichi for free after quite severe criticism of the developer’s original decision. Despite being a pretty squishy hero at just 200 health points, she can dish out solid damage and has a kit that’s perfect for buffing her teammates. In other words, she’s not as passive a healer as, say, Baptiste or Mercy, but you probably don’t want her attacking the enemy front like Brigitte or Zenyatta either. However, that could change in light of an exploit discovered by Twitch streamer Flats.

A partner of over watch League’s Florida Mayhem, Flats, tweeted a video on Nov. 15 of Kiriko fending off headshot damage with her arm while looking up at the sun. Flats shot an enemy Kiriko a few times with Widowmaker, only for the bullets to just graze the ninja’s seemingly indestructible arm, allowing her to instantly heal again. Flats eventually mumbled a single shot to the head at Kiriko, but only after positioning himself at just the right angle and saying that you “have to get behind Kiriko” to “shoot the back of her head”. Who knew staring up at the sky could save you from death?

What seems to have happened here is that when Kiriko looks up, her arm gets in the way of her dome’s hitbox, affecting the damage she takes from headshots. In response to Flat’s tweet, noted one Twitter user that Mercy was able to do the same, but only if she used her ultimate ability, Resurrect, where she raises her arm in the air to revive a dead teammate.

kotaku has reached out to Blizzard and Flats for comment.

blizzard, who has a long history of abuse and harassmentworked to get surveillance 2 into a more stable and balanced state since the game launched on October 4th Patches to nerf heroes like Genji and Benking characters to remove exploits and fix other issues (as we saw with Mei, who should return to hero shooter on November 17th). During the over watch League Grand Finals, which took place earlier this month, the studio revealed the new tank hero Ramattra who will be banned behind the game’s Battle Pass. It sucks, but I think we’d better get used to it.
