Overwatch’s Latest Update: Tweaks Heroes, adds crucial Bug Fixes and a Map, Patch Notes also Released

Overwatch

A new update for Overwatch has just landed. The update tweaks four of the game’s most iconic players and offers some crucial bug fixes as well. In addition, the new update has brought in a new map as well.

The Overwatch new update adds balances to the characters of Ana, Widowmaker, and Reinhardt as a bonus. Specifically for the character of Ana, the new update adds an increase in the level of precision to her rifle. So, while zooming, fans will not face the problems anymore.

In addition to that, Brigitte now gets knocked out, the moment Doomfist punches or Reinhardt charges. So, now Brigitte won’t be able to get any extra hits before any of these two heroes can recover. As part of the new update, both Widowmaker and Reinhardt have significant changes.

Both Ana and Widowmaker now get more control while zooming. Moreover, Reinhardt’s Earth Shatter is now fully reworked. So, now traveling up the inclines and roaming around the payloads is much easier. Also, you can now hit enemies near the wall with more precision constantly.

As mentioned earlier, the new Overwatch update has in fact fixed some crucial bugs as well. Fans will now not have any problems with weapons that shoot multiple bullets. So, D.Va’s Fusion cannons are now all pumped up with precision. Reaper’s Hellfire Shotguns are also now ready to deal much more damage to the enemies unlike before.
