Is there any way to tell when the enemy team has wallhacks on, either in the form of Widowmaker's Recon Sensor, or Hanzo's Sonar?

I'm mostly curious if there are any other ways to tell when an enemy Widowmaker has her ult active besides the voice line "No one can hide from my sight", perhaps visually?

  • if you die immediately as you walk around a corner, thats a pretty good sign, as for Hanzo, see this gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/266782/…

    @Dragonrage I mean, it'd be a good idea to know if they have hacks on without dying rather than dying so you can tell your team "Crap, they have wallhacks on"

    I dont think the term wallhacks really fits this though. wallhacks are actual hacks, not an ability that grants vision.

    that is highly misleading and confusing, as its not a hack. it should be called infrared sight or something.

    @Dragonrage Just as Mcree's ult is called Dead Eye, yet many players refer to it as "High Noon"

As mentioned in the comments, Hanzo's wallhack is answered in this question. As for Widowmaker, it is possible to hear her say "Personne n'échappe à mon regard", which is French for "No one can hide from my sight", but it's very quiet compared to other ultimates like Barrage, Tactical Visor, or Rip-Tire.

    I disagree, its loud enough, if you are playing with headphones on you will hear her activate her visor. Also she says it in English in my games. May 25, 2016 at 21:52

    I don't think you can disagree it's more quiet than pretty much every other ultimate in the game. May 25, 2016 at 21:53
  • Is there any way to tell if she has wallhacks on even after she's said the voice line? Usually it's someone in my squad who hears her saying the voice line then letting everyone else know that she's got hacks on, but sometimes we've all been downed and unaware that she's activated hacks

  • Not until you get shot right after rounding a corner, I'm afraid. May 25, 2016 at 22:02
  • Overwatch rebalances sounds on the fly depending on whats going on. It prioritizes the sounds based on whats currently threatening you. If not much is going on then a Widowmaker might sound fairly loud, but if there's a Genji right on top of you then it'll quiet the Widowmaker and make the Genji louder May 26, 2016 at 14:00
