The most recent patch for Overwatch 2 from Blizzard makes some significant adjustments to some of the game’s heroes. Many of the game’s heroes receive buffs as a result of the update, with Tank characters particularly benefiting from the new balancing changes.

The patch also begins the One-Punch Man and Overwatch 2 partnership, which runs through April 6. Players will receive free themed prizes, such as the Legendary Mumen Rider – Soldier: 76 skin, by completing challenges through April 6. Players can also complete their hero collection with additional Legendary bundles containing Saitama – Doomfist, Terrible Tornado – Kiriko, and Genos – Genji from the in-game shop.

Overwatch 2’s latest patch makes some changes to the hero balance


  • Now while using Annihilation in Nemesis Form, Ramattra will have the bonus armor refreshed.

Wrecking ball

  • Grappling Claw has been added to indicate its maximum duration before automatically detaching. Grappling Claw now has a timeout indicator above the ability icon.
  • Minefield arming duration is extended from 1 to 1.25 seconds.


  • B.O.B. now prioritizes targets damaged by Ashe’s rifle, which may allow for more flexible Ultimate placement.


  • Lunge cooldown decreased from 5 to 4 seconds


  • Directional inputs now affect Jump Jet movement


  • The minimum health level for the immortality field increased from 10% to 25%


  • Torso hit volume width increased by 20%


  • Blizzard ultimate cast time reduced from 0.5 to 0.4 seconds


  • The shared cooldown for Particle Barrier and Projected Barrier reduced from 11 to 10 seconds


  • The cooldown for Chain Hook now begins at the end of the ability rather than at the beginning
  • Chain Hook cooldown reduced from 8 to 6 seconds


  • Terra Surge
  • Orisa’s Terra Surge ultimate can now be interrupted by Sombra’s Hack, making it less powerful

The complete patch notes are available on Blizzard’s official website. Although this most recent patch might not have included all the balancing adjustments that Overwatch 2 fans were looking for, it should help the game feel a little bit more even for both experienced players and brand-new players.
