Blizzard Entertainment has rolled out a new patch for Monitor 2 Tuesday will end Roadhog’s ability to kill opponents in one hit, thanks to substantial nerfs to his Chain Hook and Scatter Pistol. This is good news for players tired of being about to receive (i.e. die) from a successful Roadhog hook, but it’s also not the only change Blizzard has. planned for the tank.
The new tweaks to Roadhog’s chain hook and scattergun are “just the first steps toward a bigger overhaul.” Blizzard said on Twitter. “Expect more changes to Roadhog’s kit soon.” For now, here are the changes in detail:
- Impact damage reduced from 30 to 5
- Enemy final position distance from Roadhog after being shot increased from 3m to 4m
- Damage per pellet reduced from 6.6 to 6
- Cooldown reduced from 0.85 to 0.8 seconds
- Reload time reduced from 2 to 1.75 seconds
- Maximum ammo increased from 5 to 6
The Overwatch developers said the change to Roadhog, which has been on the roster since launch, “aims[s] to reduce the frustration of dying with a single hit immediately after being hooked and pulled. The combo’s effect is now “more dependent on specific hero matches and how the hooked target is able to react”, and more squishy characters like Moira, Tracer, and Lucio will have a better chance of responding or getting stuck. escape safely with change.
Other changes in Tuesday’s update for Surveillance 2 include a nerf to Orisa’s Fortify ability, whose health bonus is reduced from 125 to 75, and Kiriko’s Healing Ofuda, which Blizzard says has too high of an average healing yield. hope, Blizzard said in the game’s latest patch notesis that Kiriko players will deal more damage, using her kunai, alongside her healing.
Blizzard is also tweaking Sojourn’s railgun, with energy gain now based on hitting an enemy player with their primary fire, not damaging an enemy player with their primary fire. Blizzard says the tweak will “help smooth out Sojourn’s Railgun average charge time, as it won’t benefit as much from critical damage or damage boost abilities. Hitting armored targets or other sources of damage reduction will result in faster energy gains than before.
Monitor 2The new patch is available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X versions of the game.
