Repair Pack

  • Armor over-heal reduced from 75 armor to 50 armor
  • HPS decreased from 60 to 55

Developer Comment: On top of the high utility Brigitte brings to her team, she also dishes out a ton of healing and armor. We’re reducing some of this healing and armor to help keep her in line with the other healers.


  • Photon Projector (Secondary Fire)
  • Damage increased from 120 to 140

Developer Comment: Increasing Photon Projectors max damage allows Symmetra to play more effectively at a safer range when necessary.


Widow’s Kiss

  • Full charge time for scoped shots increased from 0.75 sec to 0.9 sec

Developer Comment: Widowmaker has become stronger over time following changes to other heroes, such as power reductions to barriers. This change is intended to slow down her shots, reducing her overall DPS.

Wrecking Ball


  • Affected players’ loss of air control reduced from 1 second to 0.5 seconds

Developer Comment: This change allows Wrecking Ball’s enemies to regain control of their movement more quickly to try and avoid attacks, making Piledriver combos a bit less deadly.

Console-Only Changes


Biotic Rifle

  • Allied projectile size increased from 0.3 to 0.4


Sentry Turret

  • Turret DPS reduced from 34 to 30
