Hammond is another character from #Overwatch. He's a genetically engineered hamster, and as a result has a superior intelligence. Hammond taught himself to be a mechanic, and used his own little hamster toys and his hamster wheel to build a sort of mecha escape pod. He hitched the pod to his friend Winston's escape vehicle, but as they entered Earth's atmosphere, the rope broke and they landed in two separate locations. If you're a fan of car shows you may be wondering: was Hammond named after Richard Hammond (called "The Hamster" by his fans), one of the stars of The Grand Tour? Well, Overwatch insists on calling Hammond (the rodent) "Wrecking Ball," and Richard Hammond has had his share of wrecks.
