okay but he was a kid in that photo with ana, so? He was a teenager when he joined?
I can’t believe I actually have to write this
Like I get it the “Reyes adopts Mccree” headcanons are fun but!! they aren’t!! real!!
SO if you go on playOverwatch you get this for mccree’s bio
“McCree had already made a name for himself as a member of the notorious Deadlock Gang, which trafficked in illicit weapons and military hardware throughout the American Southwest, when he and his associates were busted in an Overwatch sting operation. With his expert marksmanship and resourcefulness, he was given the choice between rotting in a maximum-security lockup and joining Blackwatch, Overwatch’s covert ops division. He chose the latter.Although he was initially cynical, he came to believe that he could make amends for his past sins by righting the injustices of the world. McCree appreciated the flexibility afforded to the clandestine Blackwatch, unhindered by bureaucracy and red tape.”
now I know it doesn’t tell his age, but there are some very important parts that people are missing??
“…which trafficked in illicit weapons and military hardware throughout the American Southwest “
specifically that. Ya’ll treat Deadlock as some little biker gang, but it was a weapons trafficking group. it was a TERRORIST GROUP. it was organized, and dangerous. it blew up a train for pete’s sake have ya’ll never been to the route 66 map??
Mccree was a young man, sure. but a terrorist organization wouldn’t have a fifteen year old as their star. Mccree was a man that killed a shit ton of innocent people and stole a LOT of weapons from overwatch personally.
“.. he was given the choice between rotting in a maximum-security lockup and joining Blackwatch, Overwatch’s covert ops division. “
this is self explanatory, a child that was raised by a gang wouldn’t be sent to a maximum security prison. they also wouldn’t be offered a place in a covert operations organization. against the law, friends.
McCree was a BAD MAN running with a WEAPONS TRAFFICKING GROUP THAT LIKELY WORKED ALONGSIDE TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS TO SELL ILLEGAL MILITARY WEAPONRY. he was a BAD ADULT MAN who was trying to make up for the wrong in his BAD ADULT PAST.
like I headcanon him to be around 20-25 when he joins blackwatch. Remember he joined AFTER it was formed. he likely wasn’t around for nearly as long as the founding members?
anyways mcreyes isn’t pedophilia can we move on now or. or am I just gonna keep getting anons I mean.
