Blizzard Entertainmentunveiled the 28th hero coming to its popular online shooter “Overwatch” on Thursday — a giant, adorable hamster in a rolling battle mech called Wrecking Ball (because why the hell not?) — and he’s now available on the game’s public test realm.

Hammond, also known as “Specimen 8,” was genetically modified during his time on Horizon Lunar Colony and, like Winston, was granted increased size and intelligence as a result, Blizzard said. He secretly attached his escape pod to the back of Winston’s ship during a rebellion on the base and has been hanging out in the Australian Outback ever since.

He doesn’t speak any human languages, Blizzard said. Because, you know, hamster. But, his battle mech automatically translates his voice in an appropriately menacing tone.

Wrecking Ball is a tank character and can switch between a bipedal combat mode and a roll mode. He can also climb and swing onto surfaces using his grappling claw and perform a piledriver on enemies. His primary weapons are quad cannons and his ultimate deploys damage-dealing proximity mines around him.

Here’s the full breakdown of his abilities:

Quad Cannons: Wrecking Ball fires machine guns

Adaptive Shield: Grants Wrecking Ball a number of temporary shields based on the number of enemies nearby

Roll: Wrecking Ball transforms into a sphere with increased speed

Grappling Claw: While in Roll mode, Wrecking Ball can launch a short grappling hook to attach to surfaces, swing around, clear gaps, and move upwards. Using this ability allows Wrecking Ball to gain momentum, dealing damage and knocking back enemies upon impact

Piledriver: Wrecking Ball slams down from the air, pulling enemies towards the center of impact and dealing damage

Minefield (Ultimate): Wrecking Ball litters the ground around him with damage-dealing proximity mines.
