Going based off of her turret damage going from 40 to 30 damage per second a few seasons ago. It feels like her damage numbers have lowered a lot more than expected. Anyone else notice this? When I see a Sym’s stats in game the damage seems comparable to Meis which is usually pretty low as well in comparison to other DPS heroes.
Pretty sure it’s 25 damage for turrets. And yes her output is generally lower now.
Oh Wow then yeah no wonder. I’m curious to see if they do anything to her Primary Fire down the line seeing her Alternate Fire is her only reliable source of damage rn.
Not really her charged beam melts you
It’s incredibly risky, trying to build up charge with it in most situations. Most other DPS heroes can kill you faster than the time it takes to build up charge with it.
Unless you got an enemy tank whose obvious or a barrier out of place you’re not gonna get to lv3 with her Primary Fire, especially at higher elo.
Depends. Flank Sym is better, a defensive Sym will see probably feel the damage nerf.
I’ve always preferred a more aggro playstyle with her.
TP turret bombing in the enemy backlines definitely doesn’t feel as effective now imo.
According to overbuff Sym is placed 11th out of 17 DPS when it comes to damage. And the ones below her have either
- high burst damage (Hanzo, Widowmaker)
- high survivability (Genji, Tracer, Sombra, Mei)
Symmetra has none.
Yeah look the devs hate her.
When I play her I unironically have people complain about turrets still because they’ve adapted to the low damage in a weird way - they just ignore them for a longer period of time now and die to them (the same players the complained about turrets pre-nerf).
