Overwatch PTR Patch Notes – August 26, 2021

A new Overwatch patch is in development and now available for testing. To share your feedback or report any issues, please post in the PTR Feedback or PTR Bug Report forums.

Please note that the below patch notes only include changes currently available for testing on the PTR. While many of these changes may also be available on Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch in a future patch, the PTR is PC-only and only reflects changes coming specifically to that platform.



  • Our newest Free-For-All Map is Malevento, a peaceful Italian hilltop town with a cursed past!
  • Battle along the cliff’s edge for dominance of the majestic Duomo di Malevento. Circle your opponents beneath the mournful stone eyes of Caterina Pastore, a Renaissance painter with a tragic past, or plot the downfall of your enemies in the mysterious safe house.
  • Will you find victory in these twisting streets, or will the curse of Malevento claim you too?

Think this is the most appropriate gif all things considered.

Hell, It's about time.

I am running a Malvento Deathmatch skirmish in the PTR Custom Game Lobby with no timer or ending (well 5000 kills to win). Great for practice.


NERF ZARYA! In the matter of dramatically reducing ammo capacity. The shield isnt the problem. Its the fact she can just stand there 5 v 1 and whipe the whole team in seconds from the start of the match. Reduce damage or ammo capacity drastically. Or make her a glass cannon. She cant withdtand 4 nukes and hit hard.
