Hero UpdatesEdit

GeneralEdit

  • Channeled and transformation ultimate abilities now restore ammunition after completion for some heroes
    • Channeled abilities affected: Junkrat’s RIP-Tire, Pharah’s Barrage, Roadhog’s Whole Hog, and Zenyatta’s Transcendence
    • Transformation abilities affected: Genji’s Dragonblade, Winston’s Primal Rage

Developer Comments: The change removes the need to immediately reload after a long duration ultimate.

AnaEdit

  • Nano Boost
    • Now also instantly heals the target for 300 health

Developer Comments: This change should give Ana the flexibility to use her ultimate in a wider variety of situations.

BrigitteEdit

  • Shield Bash
    • Cooldown increased from 6 to 7 seconds
  • Repair Pack
    • An option to control Brigitte’s Repair Pack targeting sensitivity has been added under Options > Controls > Brigitte

Developer Comments: Slightly increasing the cooldown will give Brigitte’s opponents more opportunity to play around her Shield Bash ability.

DoomfistEdit

  • Rocket Punch
  • No longer impacts Symmetra’s teleporter
  • Now destroys Symmetra’s sentry turrets without stopping his movement

Developer Comments: These changes are just quality of life improvements for how Doomfist interacts with Symmetra’s placeables.

HanzoEdit

  • Lunge
    • Cooldown increased from 4 to 5 seconds

Developer Comments: Hanzo’s Lunge ability allows him to be very evasive, the increased cooldown should make him slightly easier to catch.

MoiraEdit

  • Biotic Grasp
    • Passive energy regeneration rate increased from 2 per second to 2.4 per second

Developer Comments: This gives Moira a bit more healing to work with in situations with no enemy targets available.

LúcioEdit

  • Crossfade
    • Aura radius increase from 10 to 12 meters
  • Sound Barrier
    • Temporary shields granted increased from 500 to 750

Developer Comments: Increasing the amount of shield health gained from Lucio’s Sound Barrier should make it more effective against incoming burst damage. The increased aura radius will help keep more allies within his heal and speed range.

MercyEdit

  • Caduceus Staff
    • Healing beam reduced from 60 healing per second to 50 healing per second

Developer Comments: Mercy’s previous healing output made her nearly impossible to replace in any team composition. Even after these changes she will still be able to deliver more healing over the course of a match than any other support hero. This change should allow for other healers to be a more viable pick.

SombraEdit

  • General
    • Reduced the size of Sombra’s head hit volume

Developer Comments: This is mostly a bug fix, as her head hit volume was abnormally large, especially from behind. Previously if you fired at her from behind near her upper spine, you could land a head shot. Now her head volume is much more accurate.

SymmetraEdit

ReinhardtEdit

  • Barrier Field
    • Decorative insignia no longer protrudes from the shield’s surface

Developer Comments: By smoothing out Reinhardt Barrier Field, he will be able to consistently block enemy abilities and projectiles (e.g. Junkrat’s grenades).

WidowmakerEdit

Developer Comments: The increased cooldown will slightly reduce the frequency that Widowmaker can reposition herself.

ZaryaEdit

  • Energy
    • Drain rate reduced from 2 per second to 1.6 per second
  • Graviton Surge
    • Radius reduced from 8 to 6 meters

Developer Comments: With the reduced Energy drain rate, Zarya should be at higher energy on average resulting in more overall damage and quicker ultimate charge times. We’ve also decreased the wide area of Graviton Surge, so players are more able to aid allies without being pulled in as well.

Bug FixesEdit

Competitive PlayEdit

  • Fixed a bug that could cause players to lose an endorsement level if they exited before a match completes, but after the return timer for a leaving player has expired

HeroesEdit

  • D.Va
    • Fixed a bug that caused D.Va’s gun to disappear if Roadhog used Chain Hook on her while she used an emote
  • Junkrat
    • Fixed a bug that allowed Junkrat’s ammo to be replenished if RIP-Tire failed to cast
  • Sombra
    • Fixed a bug that caused Sombra’s visual effects to display darker than intended
  • Zarya
    • Fixed a bug that caused Zarya’s Graviton Surge visual effects to extend beyond the ability’s radius

Hero GalleryEdit

  • Fixed a bug that prevented rotating hero models while viewed in the Hero Gallery when equipped with Overwatch League skins
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the Communication Wheel from functioning when equipping a spray, voice line, or emote from a Loot Box
