Overwatch PTR Patch Notes – June 23, 2020

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 PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in a future patch, the PTR is PC-only and only reflects changes coming specifically to that platform.


Feature Update: Career Profile Improvements

The Career Profile page has been redesigned to provide a better, more streamlined experience when viewing player profiles. Aside from the brand new look, we’ve also added some new quality-of-life features:

  • Game mode play time has been added to the overview section, so you can see exactly how much time you’ve spent in modes like Competitive Play or any of the community’s creative Workshop modes
  • Statistics are displayed in a tabular format, separated by “Average/10 min”, “Best”, “Total”, providing a cleaner, more readable view
  • Your in-game achievements are grouped by category, and can be filtered by what you’ve earned and have yet to unlock
  • Your Player Icons are now grouped by category and can be filtered by hero and whether you own them


  • Capture the Flag in-game achievements have been moved to the Maps category
  • Added additional playback languages for Echo’s Duplicate ability video



Concussion Mine

  • Trigger delay reduced from 0.156 to 0.1 seconds


  • Time to take control of Junkrat post detonation has been reduced from 1.5 to 0.9 seconds



  • Fixed a bug where the Heavy Jump Land sound would not play under specific circumstances
  • Fixed a bug with the Role Select screen not appearing on various main menu screens for non-group leaders
  • Fixed a bug with spectator functionality in FFA not working properly in 1P and 3P
  • Fixed a bug with FFA matches showing Defeat for all players
  • Fixed a bug with the announcer voice line in Deathmatch incorrectly stating the number of kills remaining



  • Fixed a bug where the Viper can clip through the camera if Ashe is jumping and firing while aiming down her sights


  • Fixed a bug where D.Va’s Micro Missiles were not being affected by damage boost abilities


  • Fixed a bug with Deflect where projectiles could still cause damage when deflected under specific circumstances

Wrecking Ball

  • Fixed a bug where Wrecking Ball could use Grappling Claw without transitioning into ball form
  • Fixed a bug with Minefield where some mines could become stuck inside terrain on Temple of Anubis


  • Fixed a bug where Echo’s primary fire sound was too loud when using the “No Ammunition Requirement” setting

Wait why? :sob: :sob:
It’s such a fun glitch tho…

Edit: if this comment gets over 100 likes, can we revert this change please :slight_smile:


Are profiles public? Or do the people I looked at have theirs open, which were all random people, and all of theirs were visible. :thinking:

Profiles are still private.

I wish they would make it so everyones was public on default… it feels like such a wasted update when majority I look at are always private lol.


Oooh, I see. Then disregard my post. Must just be those I looked at then.

Icons finally sorted thank you


I wish there was an option to just hide competitive stats from public. I’d open my profile back up if I could hide just my comp stats.


this please

I don’t mind people seeing what top heroes I have played but I don’t want them digging back to my season 10 comp stats and judging me because of that.


Why not take the delay away entirely? Is it physics bs or game play mechanics that prevent that from being possible?

Exactly. Let us hide / show individual seasons / modes.

Now i’ll be happy :slight_smile:

So if it didn’t work in first person or 3rd person? Where did it work properly?

I can’t seem to find SR on anyones profiles? I have placed in the PTR competitive before…but I cant seem to find my SR anywhere in my profile. Is this done on purpose?

Please don’t patch the Wrecking Ball grappling claw bug! It isn’t game breaking or gives Hammond any sort of advantage, and the combo of key binds in order to achieve the bug isn’t practical in-game, so it’s just a funny little tech in the game that does no harm.


Here are a few screenshots of how it looks like.


Bug: the drop down menu for selecting past seasons does not have “all competitive seasons”.

I think the default as private is because of the GDPR, when those options came into play in the same week

On the second screenshot, below ALL HEROES is Pachimari ??

You mind if you add new hero icons for the new characters who have never got one. Brigitte, Baptiste, Wrecking Ball, Ashe, Sigma, Echo. Thanks :slight_smile:
