Overwatch players have noticed a bug after the latest update to the game preventing Ana players from walking over the slept bodies of the enemy team.

The bug initially prohibited the Ana player from teabagging the slept enemy, an infamous taunt since Ana has been released. Blizzard revealed that it has plans to fix the bug in the near future.

Blizzard told Kotaku that this is not a nerf and simply an unintended interaction that will be fixed in the next two weeks.

“Ana’s slept targets retaining their hitbox was simply a bug,” a Blizzard spokesperson said in an email. “The bug has been fixed for the upcoming OWL matches and will be fixed in the live game in the next two weeks.”

Teabagging is the act of crouching repeatedly over the body of the opponent in an attempt to taunt them. The bug doesn’t only prohibit players from teabagging the opponent but also the slept body can block players from entering a certain space.

At first glance players assumed that Blizzard intentionally made the change in an attempt to end another mean of toxic behavior, the community was torn in two sides one welcoming the change as it prohibits an act of unsportsmanlike behavior, while the other side considered it a tactical way of getting into the mind of the enemy player and throwing them off their game, hence increasing their chances of winning the game.

At the end of the day teabagging is not leaving Overwatch for the time being, and the bug should be fixed by Blizzard in two weeks.
