The main way we see Overwatch characters interact involves a lot of shooting and punching, but have you ever wondered what might happen if they met up in a different context? Say, if, instead of fighting a war over Omnics, they were roomies arguing over whose turn it was to do the dishes?

Well, one Reddit user by the name of Heltinne simulated just that, creating the members of Overwatch’s villain group Talon — that’s Widowmaker, Sombra, Doomfist and Reaper — in Sims 4. So, while you wait for Blizzard to finally announce an official release date for Doomfist within Overwatch itself, maybe imagining his antics in a household alongside the other members of Talon will be enough to hold you over.

Be warned: For some reason, the Sim-ified version of Doomfist can’t seem to keep his clothes on.
