It has been more than a year since #Blizzard Entertainment's team-based shooter launched for all major platforms. The game itself has reached milestones of its own with the number of registered players recently reaching 30 million. Meanwhile, a player has reportedly become the first one to reach level 4,000 in “#Overwatch." His achievement means that he ranked up his account to level 100 around 40 times. The developer has not yet confirmed the authenticity of the user’s claim but it’s only a matter of time before they make it official.

Reaching level 4000 and more

The report was apparently taken from an “Overwatch” sub-Reddit, where the player known as Treeboydave starred in a new thread.

The user apparently showed proof in the form of a Twitch account, his tracker profile for the FPS, and a screenshot of the level 4,000 portrait border. Based on the available data, it appears that the player dedicated an estimated 3,500 hours, which is roughly 146 days of 24-hour gaming.

Despite his lofty achievement, Treeboydave claims that his milestone was not intentional. He pointed out that his actual plan is to eventually register a playtime of around 150 hours for each of the available heroes in “Overwatch." Furthermore, the player pointed out that the ongoing mission is most likely just a month away.

Level cap undefined

Fans of the hero-based shooter have wondered about the highest level players can reach. It was reported that a user reached level 1,000 within the first year of its release.

Just a few months after, another gamer surpassed level 1,800, and, given the latest numbers, it seems that the developer has opted not to set a limit for the game. Gamers hope that the studio confirms [VIDEO] those numbers and officially recognizes Treeboydave for his dedication.

More to expect from the developer

Currently, “Overwatch” is hosting the #Halloween Terror 2017 event, which brings back all of last year’s legendary skins at a reduced price, along with some new ones for a few other heroes. Other than the seasonal celebration, Blizzard Entertainment is expected to have something more in store for Blizzcon 2017 [VIDEO] this November. Jeff Kaplan noted that the next hero was already in a playable state, which left fans to speculate that the new character might be revealed during the show. Tickets are unfortunately sold out, but gamers can expect that a livestream will be available for those that can’t attend the event in person.
