To help advertise the arrival of Overwatch on the Nintendo Switch handheld games console, Blizzard Entertainment have sponsored inventor and YouTube star Colin Furze to build a real-life working version of Junkrat’s RIP-tire. Check out the video below to learn more about the build process and see it in action smashing through a few panes of glass.
The real-life version of Junkrat’s RIP-tire weapon has been built using a chainsaw as a base together with a variety of custom components fabricated in Furze’s workshop. “I’ve Made a Real working RIP-TIRE, yes Junkrats back mounted weapon from Overwatch. Made from a chainsaw and some Furze magic, its good but I think we can go bigger on power and destruction so stay tuned for more.”
Although the remote controlled version of Junkrat’s RIP-tire is pretty awesome, Furze is hoping to make it even more devastating and will be posting a follow-up video in the coming weeks. To check out this and previous creations by Furze jump over to his YouTube channel which has over 8.5 million subscribers.
