Oversized v1.04

This game mode is played 5v5 with the regular arcade rule set but has an additional resource system called Energy and a different class system. This game mode also features shrinking and growing mechanics that are central to some of the classes. In addition all heroes have been reworked to fit their new class roles. Have fun exploring what they do and their crazy abilities!

Please send me a comment if you tried out the mode and let me know what you think :-)

Make team Giant moar OP.

Below is a detailed description for nerds.

The classes

The heroes are divided between 5 different classes. Giant, Anti Giant, Hunter, Shrinker and Support. Each team can have at most one giant, but may pick and choose freely among the other classes. The game mode is designed to provide incentive to create a team composition that includes one of each class but there are no restrictions other than the limit on Giants. Another noteworthy change is that the number of barriers in the game has been reduced and that only Giants may use barrier skills. Sources of healing has also been reduced and is mainly provided by Support heroes but some Shrinker heroes may also have access to limited off-healing.


  • Energy is a resource all players can gather, but each class have different mechanics for doing so.
  • Energy is used for growth. Growth costs 1 energy per 1% size. Giants may grow up to 4 times normal size (400% size) if their energy allows it, while other classes, if shrunk, may use their energy to grow back to their original size.
  • Shrunken players regenerate 1% size per second at the cost of one energy automatically.
  • During active growth the growing player is rooted.
  • Non-giants may press interact to toggle donating or conserving energy.
  • Non-giants can donate energy to giants as long as they are not shrunken. Donating occurs when in close proximity to the giant.
  • Support players that donate energy also donate energy to nearby shrunk allies (that does not have enough energy to grow themselves back).
  • 25% of accumulated energy is lost when you die. If you die in a shrunken state the energy cost to grow back will be paid when spawning. Insufficient energy does not prevent spawning with 100% size.


Each team can have at most one Giant. This class plays like an overpowered and agressive tank. The objective is for each player to gather energy and donate it to their team's Giant. Doing so the Giant can use the energy to power up and become even bigger and more lethal. Giants starts at 125% size and can grow up to 400% size for a limited duration using energy.
Maximum energy is 400.

Stat increases per 100% additional size (e.g. @ 200% size, movement speed is 120%)

  • Movement speed: 20%
  • Jump speed: 30%
  • Damage reduction: 10%
  • Health: 50%
  • Damage dealt: 10%

Once a Giant has grown oversized it may trample enemies that are less than half their size by walking close to them. The damage dealt is based on the size difference. If the size difference is greater than 4 the trampled will be knocked down.

Anti Giants

Deployed to keep the enemy giants in check. They possess multiple abilities that pose a great threat to giants and know how to attack their weak points. They are on the other hand weaker versus all other classes.

  • Ignores the intrinsic giant damage reduction, but deals reduced damage to non-giants.
  • Gains energy by dealing damage. Damage against giants award more energy.
  • Have offensive and/or defensive abilities that only triggers when interacting with giants.
  • Maximum energy is 100.


The hunter is all about bringing the damage and securing kills. A successful hunter will bring in a lot of energy to their team by going after their marked targets as they gain bonus energy and have more efficient attacks against them. As a giant never can be chosen as the marked target a hunter is incentivised to prioritize their mark over shooting giants.

  • A random non-giant enemy is selected as the marked target (a.k.a. Mark).
  • Attacks against the marked target is enhanced based on the unique flavour of the hero.
  • Hunters get 15 energy from killing blows (5 energy from elimination credit).
  • Dealing the killing blow on the marked target award 40 energy (10 bonus energy on elimination credit).
  • Maximum energy is 100.

Hunter duels

  • A duel between opposing hunters will ensue when they have each other as targets. Winning the duel will award full energy and 25% ultimate charge. The losing hunter will lose all energy and 25% ultimate charge. A hunter duel will always happen when a hunter that is marked by another hunter kills his target.


The Shrinkers have abilities that weaken the enemy team by shrinking their non-giant players or draining/leeching their energy (effectively reducing the speed at which they gather energy to their team's giant). Shrinking a player will force it to choose between fighting in a smaller state with reduced power or find an opportunity to burn its hard earned energy to grow back to size. If a shrunken player is killed the cost of growing back will be withdrawn before respawning, which means no energy will be saved if the player choose not to grow back. Insufficient energy will not prevent respawning at full size.

  • Gains energy from shrinking players.
  • Gains energy from eliminating shrunk players.
  • Maximum energy is 125.

Critical Trample
A player that has been shrunk to 25% size or less may be trampled by any full sized enemy hero and receive critical damage. The damage is based on player size.


The backbone of the team. Supports through healing and/or buffing team members. Are often in one way or the other able to grow shrunken members back to size.

  • Provides healing and buffs.
  • Can donate energy to shrunk players.
  • Gains energy from healing.
  • Has quicker and more cost effective regrowth.
  • Maximum energy is 150.

Class Hero
Giant Roadhog
AntiGiant Cassidy or Soldier:76
Hunter Zenyatta or Mei
Shrinker Ana or Sombra
Support Lucio or Torbjörn

It is recommended to choose a hero of the class that you are replacing so that all classes are represented but it is not strictly necessary.

Players | 1 - 10
Heroes: D.va, Orisa, Reinhardt, Roadhog, Sigma, and 26 more...
