A new patch is now live on Windows PC. Read below to learn more about the latest changes.

To share your feedback, please post in the General Discussion forum.

Please note that many of these changes will be rolled into a larger patch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a later date.



HERO BALANCE CHANGES​

McCree
Peacekeeper
Alternate Fire
Recovery time (i.e. the amount of time before McCree starts reloading) decreased from 0.75 seconds to 0.3 seconds
Bullet damage decreased from 70 to 45​


Developer Comments: McCree was performing too well against all targets, making him feel like a must-pick in many situations. By reducing the damage of his alternate fire, McCree is now significantly weaker against tanks like Roadhog and Reinhardt, but still maintains his lethality against smaller targets like Tracer and Genji.

Widowmaker
Widows Kiss
Alternate Fire (Scoped Shot)
Base damage decreased from 15 to 12
Note: Scoped shot damage multiplier remains unchanged​
Headshot damage multiplier increased from 2x to 2.5x
Players must now wait for the unscoping animation to completely finish before scoping​
Infra-Sight
Ultimate cost increased by 10%​

Developer Comments: In the right hands, Widowmaker can often feel unstoppableeven when just landing body shots instead of critical heads shots. The changes to her alternate fire weaken body shot damage while leaving her headshot damage unchanged. Additionally, we felt her Ultimate ability, Infra-Sight, was coming up a little too frequently, especially considering its impact on the game.



BUG FIXES​

General
Improved stability of the High Bandwidth option in Custom Games

Heroes
Fixed a bug that allowed Mercy to gain Ultimate charge whenever damage boosting an ally who was attacking a barrier or Ice Wall
Fixed a bug that allowed Reaper to Shadow Step to unintended locations on a certain maps

Maps
Fixed an issue with collision on certain areas of Dorado not blocking line of sight

Great changes. I had a feeling FtH damage would get nerfed to 40-45. This is a much needed nerf as McCree shredded through tanks like it was no tomorrow. 45 damage is still great as it can take out targets that hes intended to take out like Tracer, Genji, and pretty much the rest of squishes. He still can take a tank like Winston on with flash, Foh, roll, then FoH again but he can no longer kill a Roadhog with this combo.

yeah did we get any DVA changes?

Not quite. Blizzard said they would nerf McCree first before changing D.Va. We still don't know what they gonna change. Things that have been looked at was her damage dropoff range, the speed reduction when shooting, and her cooldowns.
