Overwatch Nerfs Junkrat

The latest update of Overwatch nerfed  some characters abilities, including Mercy, which we talked about yesterday.

But Mercy isn’t the only character getting a nerf, as Junkrat is nerfed as well. Check out the patch notes that outline the entire update:

Junkrat

  • Concussion Mine
    • Now will deal less damage to targets farther away from the explosion’s center

Developer Comments: Junkrat has been enjoying the flexibility his double-charge Concussion Mine provides, but it has become a bit too easy to throw out huge bursts of damage in a large area. With this change he can still dish out similar damage but he must now be more accurate with his tosses.

Mercy

  • Valkyrie
    • No longer makes Resurrect instant
    • No longer grants a bonus Resurrect charge
    • The speed bonus Guardian Angel receives when activating Valkyrie has been decreased by 50%
    • Duration reduced from 20 seconds to 15 seconds

Developer Comments: Mercy’s recent Resurrect changes have helped in allowing enemies to have more counter play in dealing with her, but she was able to use Resurrect through Valkyrie enough to largely mitigate the impact of the previous changes. Additionally, we’re toning back the amount of mobility Valkyrie provides through Guardian Angel and reducing its duration to overall reduce the power of this ability.

BUG FIXES:

Heroes

  • Fixed a bug that prevented D.Va’s face and hair textures from loading when her Black Cat skin was equipped
