Blizzard has released a new server update for Overwatch. You don’t have to download a patch!
The Overwatch Server Update from September 10th makes some adjustments to the hero again. Below we show you all the changes.
Overwatch Server Update Changelog
- Shotgun patterns no longer apply random rotation. This will affect the following heroes:
We’re making weapons that utilize shotgun patterns more reliable by removing the random rotation applied to each shot. Individual pellets within the shot will still have a tiny amount of variance to their firing angle for the sake of the shotgun weapon feel, but this change will provide significantly more control over aiming these weapons.
When combined with the changes to shotgun patterns, we’re looking to keep Roadhog’s Chain Hook combo reliable, but not overly powerful against heroes with higher health pools.
- Projectile damage reduced from 7 to 6 (150 total per shot)
This change to Torbjörn’s secondary fire is aimed at giving it a stronger role at close range. We’re hoping this change allows each shot to feel more impactful, since it has a larger burst. To keep this change in line, we’ve also reduced the damage-per-second.
- Recovery increased from 0.6 to 0.8 seconds
- Damage increased from 10.5 to 12.5 per projectile (125 total per shot)
