Overwatch Update – March 21, 2017

After weeks of waiting the long-awaited March update is finally here! The most notable addition of this update is Orisa, Overwatch’s newest hero. Orisa is a tank with a strong set of defensive abilities that set her up as a nice anchor tank. There are plenty of other changes alongside Orisa, too. The most recent batch of changes to the PTR are finally live on the base game, including:

  • Winston‘s barrier shield cooldown now starts upon using his barrier rather than once his barrier deactivates
  • Ana‘s Biotic Rifle damage has been reduced from 80 to 60
  • Junkrat’s projectiles no longer deal damage to him

This patch also has other various hero and gamemode tweaks that you can read about on Blizzard’s official website. The other club officers and I are excited to see how Orisa and these other updates affect the meta and hope you’ll get to try them out with us soon.

Good luck on the battlefield,

Bijan
