There’s a new hero coming to Overwatch soon who’s name is Sigma. Like every other hero that’s been revealed in the past, there’s usually some part of the character that the community latches onto. Sometimes it’s a part of their kit of abilities and other times it’s a certain aspect of their design like the fact that Wrecking Ball is just an adorable hamster in a mech suit. When it comes to Sigma, people have honed in on the fact that his feet are just out their for the world to see despite the rest of him being covered in an armored suit.
If you haven’t seen the new hero at all, you can catch up on Sigma’s reveal here as well as through the video above that has Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan introducing Hero 31. Sigma’s only shown from the waist up in that video and on the game’s site where his page is now up for everyone to see, though some of the images floating around of Sigma show that he fights with no shoes on and only a part of his suit wrapping around his foot. The abrupt lack of footwear contrasting with the rest of his armor has certainly caught the Overwatch community off guard.

Stand up and look at the ground. What do you see? You see your own feet. Yet in Overwatch you look down and you don't even see your own feet. It makes no sense at all.— this game sucks (@bigdick917) July 23, 2019
I put all this work into getting a hero with his feet out and I can't even look down
The cool thing about Overwatch being a first-person game is you can play Sigma and not see his feet but everyone else has to see his feet so you instantly have an advantage against the enemy team.— Kenneth Shepard (@shepardcdr) July 23, 2019
