How to counter Doomfist

On Reddit, user Lemon Tile revealed an interesting way to counter the hero’s ability. The Redditor used McCree and pulled off an ultimate while activating the #sitting emote. While his character is lazing around, from behind, Doomfist attack with a Rocket Punch. The powerful assault [VIDEO], however, just fly above his head.

Several gamers view the strategy of using an emote with McCree as an outstanding way to avoid the havoc of the latest game hero. However, if you are the one attacking McCree, it is kind of a bit frustrating that your opponents simply sat down to avoid the attack. What really happens is that when he plops down for a sit, his hitbox is shriveled. This way, he appears to be smaller and becomes hard to target.
