New patch for today (oct 29)



Biotic Launcher

  • (Primary Fire) Recovery time reduced from 0.45 to 0.38 seconds
  • (Primary Fire) Damage reduced from 25 to 24
  • (Secondary Fire) Recovery increased from 0.8 to 0.9 seconds
  • (Secondary Fire) Healing increased from 50 to 60

Developer Comments: We’re making some adjustments to Baptiste’s Biotic Launcher firing cadence that will make dealing damage quicker and landing a healing grenade more impactful.



  • Base health increased from 150 to 175



  • Base health increased from 200 to 225


  • (General) Reload time reduced from 1.5 to 1.2 seconds



  • Now restores 15 ammo per second

Ice Wall

  • Cooldown lowered from 13 to 12 seconds

Developer Comments: Since we previously made Mei’s primary fire relatively more expensive, she spends more time out of ammo and this was particularly noticeable when unable to reload while in Cryo-Freeze. To help smooth out this gameplay she now regains some ammo during Cryo-Freeze.



  • Base shields increased from 100 to 125



  • Base health reduced from 200 to 175

Developer Comments: We’re making some max health adjustments in 25 HP increments to allow for more fine tuning of heroes’ power. Until now this was done in 50 HP increments to help simplify the understanding how many hits an enemy hero could withstand.

Well my job as Brig just got easier lol

Bap and Mei have me excited though, my biggest reason to not pick up Mei was specifically because she didn’t reload in Cryo. Bap just deserved to be buffed, and I can’t wait to play him more


itll go live next week when junkenstein and comp season ends

itll go live today…

Wait. Did the baptiste ult buff not go through? That was the best part. It actually made it useful.

Yeah, kind of disappointing, to be honest.

Brig was allowed to leave spawn. Too OP.

I just read the official note, apparently the Baptiste ult change is coming later. They said they want to change the art a little. Probably next week


Did the Symmetra change feel like it made a difference? I really want to play her.

Baptiste FFA meta inbound

It’s coming later after an art polish pass.

My guess is they’ll change the visuals for it again.

Yeah it’s all pretty reasonable I’d say. The faster reload thing for McCree was the only thing I could think of that was simple enough anyway without directly increasing his fire rate or damage or anything like that.
