This new season ofOverwatch 2 brings balance changes to bring some heroes back to a similar level as other characters.
Measurements and player feedback indicate that Sojourn currently dominates the higher competitive ranks, and poses too much of a challenge against characters that don’t have the same perks. To address this, we’ll be focusing on his Railgun damage, and encouraging players to use Sojourn’s high mobility to close the distance for more devastating secondary shots.
Doomfist is getting some significant changes to help him better occupy the front lines for his team, while maintaining the playstyle that is this hero’s identity. Also expect some tweaks to Ana, Bastion, Junker Queen, Kiriko, Ange, and Symmetra when the update releases on December 6.
The season 2 will start on December 6 next.
