We will present a full-color X-ray view of the radio nebula W50 which harbors the remarkable Galactic microquasar SS 433 provided by SRG/eROSITA. This system is a unique showcase of the impact that sources with hyper Eddington accretion rates might have on their environments, featuring jets, shocks, particle acceleration to Very High Energies and more. An unprecedentedly sensitive and complete X-ray data allow us to identify a number of intricate details highlighting various aspects of the rich multi-component interaction. In future, the presented data will serve as a baseline for combining multiwavelength observations and building a complete physical picture of this "extreme ISM laboratory".
