Strength and intellect versus ferocity and tenacity. Overwatch's gorilla scientist and League of Legend's steampunk werewolf fight for the top of the genetically altered animal kingdom.
This battle takes place in the city of Zaun where Winston's duty as a hero calls him to investigate the massive slaughters reported there committed by Warwick. Can Winston stop his killstreak or be another one of the dog's chew toys?
Thanks Scythe for the sig.

Winston has a decent amount of super strength. Certainly enough to toss Warwick around with ease unless he weighs far more than he looks like he does. And his suit is pretty much bulletproof, even against Reaper's shotguns from close range. On top of that he has his rage mode, as well as his weapons and I think all of the tech attached to Warwick will basically make him a big lightning rod.
Not saying Winston will win, but he's a genius and definitely has all the tools to win.
Based on feats Warwick is far stronger. What has Winston done other than knock around Reaper, who while very formidable is merely a slightly larger than average man with a healing factor. Ana, an old woman with no superhuman physical strength, was able to beat Reaper barehanded, so that's not particularly impressive. Other than that all he's really done is crack the stone floor. Warwick tears right through Zaunite steel.
Yeah, Winston has super strength, but he's not been shown to be substantially stronger than a gorilla of his size and weight. His ability to leap dozens of feet isn't natural, he relies on his jetpack to do that.
Warwick can apparently bite through armoured Zaunite thugs with nothing more than his teeth.
"Where is the girl? I've lost track in the mayhem. Surrounded. Blades stabbing like clumsy teeth. Claws a metal blur. Jaws clamp down, and bones crack along with armor."
Now, I might be reaching a bit here, but I see no reason this armour wouldn't be able to withstand Reaper's shotguns, given the fairly significant gap between the tech levels of Zaun and the Overwatch universe. Tracer's fairly limited time travel is the result of Winston's (possibly the greatest scientific mind in the setting) chronal accelerator, which channels Tracer's time travel to let her go forwards or backwards in time a few seconds.
Ekko, a teenage hood rat in Zaun, created a portable device called the Z-Drive that lets him go several minutes back in time. He can do all of Tracer's tricks and more with his invention, including using it to enlist the aid of a parallel universe/timeline version of Ekko to bat a small device that can freeze time at his enemies.
Warwick has his own rage mode, and his base form is already physically more impressive than Winston in rage mode.
His gun is certainly his best asset in this fight, but Warwick's healing factor (which, after being horrifically maimed and killed by Singed's experiments, literally revived him from death and put him back together) along with his vastly superior agility, speed, strength, and ferocity give him the win here IMHO. Warwick punched through steel without even using his pneumatic claws or being in his rage mode, he can kill Winston pretty easily.
