Overwatch February 6 PTR patch nerfs Wrecking Ball, Brigitte, and Widowmaker, buffs Symmetra

You’ll be thrilled to hear that Symmetra’s secondary fire is now even more powerful.

Days after releasing Overwatch Patch 1.45 Blizzard has decided that four of the game’s heroes need a little bit of a tweak to keep things balanced: Wrecking Ball, Brigitte, and Widowmaker were all nerfed, while Symmetra received a buff.

The buff to Symmetra is quite significant, as outside of head-shot projectiles, her Photon Projector ability now does the most damage of any ability in the game. Full patch notes available below.
