The new Medusa skin is so loud it actively punishes you for using it. Not only can you not hear enemy footsteps you also can’t hide either. The enemy team can hear the snakes/hair on the Medusa skin & pinpoint your location from them. pic.twitter.com/S1P6CxO7Qp

“Medusa’s new skin is so loud that actively punishes you for using it. Not only can’t you hear the footsteps of the enemy, but you can’t hide either. The enemy team can hear the Medusa skin’s snakes/hairs and pinpoint your location.”
Despite Kephrii claiming that Widowmaker’s skin is a clear “pay to lose”, other players do not agree with your opinion. They go so far as to affirm that the games are very dynamic and have all kinds of sounds, so the hissing of snakes remains in the background or third planethat is to say, you can’t even hear.
