1st clue (Solved)
Second frame was found at 2:11
Was deciphered by XOR'ing the value with 23,
the supposed hero number for sombra
Led to the qoute "She who has the information,
has the power..."
2nd clue (Solved)
Original frame found:
Recovered QR code
QR code reads: "¿Estuvo eso facilito? Ahora que
tengo su atención, déjenme se las pongo más
difícil." which is "Was that easy? Well, now that I
have your attention, allow me to make things
much more difficult."
3a clue (Unsolved)
Picture of the code:
This was split roughly to the following:
This was decoded from Base64 into a OpenSSL
encrypted string. The string remains unsolved,
but passwords can be attempted at
Some people suspect that this step was bypassed
by Blizzard as we were unable to solve it, but this
3b clue (Semi-solved)
Also found in the Summer Games video was a
series of directions. These directions were
superimposed only on the video released by the
PlayOverwatch channel and are not present
Combined they look the following:
These directions were initially suspected to be
used for the 3a clue but nothing has come of
that so far.
4th clue (Solved)
After being stuck on the Tracer code for some
time Blizzard released a new hint by discreetly
adding a new picture to the galleries section of
the PlayOverwatch site.
The datamoshed image:
By comparing it the original image from the
site, the following message was found in the
difference between the images: "Por que
estan mirando al cielo? La respuesta no esta
sobre sus cabezas, esta detras de ustedes. A
veces, necesitan analizar sus logros previos."
5th clue (Solved)
The clue led to analyzing the achievements
section on the site. This revealed a new "?"
achievement, which had a comment attached to
it in the source code.
The site with source code:
The comment read:
"Vientos, nada mal. No obstante, me aburro.
Intentemos algo nuevo en la misma dirección.
5552E494 78T3 4VM9 OPL6 IS8208O913KRlrx"
Which translated is:
"Damn, not bad. However, I'm getting bored.
Let's try something new in the same direction.
5552E494 78T3 4VM9 OPL6 IS8208O913KRlrx"
6th clue (Solved)
The code at the end of the translation in the 5th
clue was run through a Vigenére Cipher. For the
password the character names were taken in the
order they were included in the compass.
The result is the following:
5552E494 78B3 4CE9 ACF6 EF8208F913CFjpg
Which translates to the following URL:
That URL leads to a datamoshed image of
7th clue (Solved)
By taking the datamoshed image from clue 6,
an ascii skull was obtained, togherter with the
phrase "Parece que te gustan estos jueguitos...
por que no jugamos uno de verdad?", which
translated means "It seems you like these little
games... Why don't we play a real one?"
The skull had nothing to proceed on and it was
presumed a dead-end until the next clue was
8th clue (Solved)
When decoded this results in a similiar ASCII
This skull was then compared to the already existing one and the following string was found by finding the difference:
This was recognised as being shifted with a Caesar Cipher, with the key being 23. After shifting it back the following was the result:
Which when spaces are added results in the following spanish sentence:
Les prometi un juego...creo que ustedes los Detectives de Juegos lo llamarían un trailhead? BLZGDUSA-AMBAS-CALAVERAS.HTML
9th clue (Solved)
By taking the data at the end of the 8th clue
message and transforming it into a Blizzard
media URL the following link was achieved:
This link leads to a medical record which was
presumably obtained by Sombra. The record
is a small MP4 that shows a moving
heartbeat and, near the end, a small skull on
A picture of the record:
The record is most likely from when Ana was
hospitalized after being shot by Widowmaker
The heartbeat to the right with the small lines
was decoded by taking each line to be a letter
from the alphabet, which resulted in the string
"momentincrime", a previous blizzard website.
10th clue (Solved)
The tip to go to "A moment in crime" meant
that the website was visited. On the website a
new message was found:
...Protocolo Sombra v1.3 iniciado...
...Infiltrando la respuesta automática del email
This lead to sending a mail to a previous email
address used by Blizzard for A moment in the
The following mail was received back:
This was found to be encrypted using a Bifid
cipher, which was deciphered as above:
The deciphered text looks like leetspeak, though
there are some oddities in the "dialect" chosen
for the leetspeak.
Some people suspect that this might actually be
a further clue or a key for something.
11a clue (Unsolved)
It was discovered that the forum post found in
the 8th clue had a "posted x time ago" that was
counting down instead of up. When that
countdown reached 0 seconds ago, the post
disappeared and the A moment in crime
website changed into the following, with the
percentage being at 2%:
In the sourcecode for this site, the following
comment was found:
Bien hecho, ya tienen mi clave. Hackear este
programa de televisión no tuvo chiste.
Espérense a lo que sigue.
This was, roughly, translated into the following:
Well done, you have my password. Hacking this
television program was meaningless, wait for
what is coming.
This translation is discussed due to use of slang
So far nothing has come from the site, apart
from the percentage increasing very, very
slowly, currently halted at 5%
During the evening (european time), the site
was updated again, with the percentage
slowly progressing through some decimals of
5%. A new message was also added to the
Parece que se están calentando un poco las
cosas... tendré que pasar desapercibida
mientras esto se finaliza.
Which translates to:
It seems that things are are warming up a
little... gotta go unnoticed while it completes.
The percentage was increased by what
seemed to be the very small amount at a time
Additional HTML was also added, though it seems of no significance:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
It does not have any effect on the website and only defines that the
website is text based and is using UTF-8 encoding for text.
The percentage seems to be increasing in
semi-regular intervals of 0.0038 or 0.0037, with
0.0038 being a lot more common. Some are
trying to convert this to binary or morse
The increase had a short break, lasting for 5
hours, after which it jumped the amount it is
estimated that it should have jumped in those 5
hours. No official reason was given.
12th clue (Unsolved)
BEWARE - This clue is potentially unsolvable
and not actually a clue - BEWARE
As part of the animation that displays the
base64 string in clue 8, an image is flashed by
The new image is presumed datamoshed in
some way, but neither of the images sent to
Blizzard are used as the base, and as such it has
been impossible so far to decipher it.
The image was searched for the following
embedded file types with no luck:
- Zip, RAR, 7z
- PNG, JPG
11b clue (Potentially unsolved)
Message sent _to_ Blizzard
A datamoshed reaper image was sent to
Blizzard. After some work LazyGamer obtained
the original image after the mosh.
This image was moshed from this image:
When the difference is inspected the following
spanish message (written by the community) is
found by looking at different data in the new
Bueno Sombra, jugemos un juegito y depaso
nos das algo con que jugar
