Hero Updates

Bug Fixes

General

  • Fixed a bug that prevented subtitles from displaying when spectating while waiting to respawn
  • Fixed a bug that caused charging heroes (Reinhardt, Doomfist, Brigitte) to inconsistently knock each other down when colliding
  • Fixed a bug so that some abilities (Hanzo’s Dragon Strike and Roadhog’s Chain Hook) will appear smoother when time is slowed down (end of round or custom game)
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Presets UI in Custom Game to be displayed in the wrong order
  • Fixed a bug so that placement previews (Reaper’s Shadow Step, Mei’s Ice Wall) should now be much smoother
  • Fixed a bug so that placement previews will now hold their position after clicking, until they’ve been confirmed by the server
  • Fixed a bug where orientation toggles for placement previews could flicker at higher latencies (Mei’s Ice Wall, Baptiste’s Amplification Matrix, Symmetra’s Photon Barrier)

Maps

Route 66

  • Fixed a bug that allowed attackers to leave the spawn room before the round starts

Heroes

Ashe

  • Fixed a bug that caused her gun to clip into the camera slightly when jumping while shooting down sights

Doomfist

  • Fixed an issue that enables Doomfist to get through doorways while using Rocket Punch and clipping the corner
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Rocket Punch from consistently destroying Sombra’s Translocator and not being stopped by it, similar to Symmetra’s turrets
  • Fixed an issue so that targets hit by Rocket Punch will now go directly backwards, instead of maintaining any lateral momentum they had
  • Fixed an issue so that targets that are immune to stun but not immune to knockback (Zarya’s Particle Barrier, Zenyatta during Transcendence) are no longer able to affect knockback trajectory
  • Fixed a bug that caused Doomfist to move more slowly for the duration of Meteor Strike when using it while crouched
  • Fixed a bug that caused Doomfist to move backwards slightly slower during Meteor Strike

D.Va

  • Fixed a bug that prevented Defense Matrix from pointing down when D.Va was aiming downward while moving

Lúcio

  • Fixed an issue that caused false positives with Lúcio’s animation landing prediction when wall riding

Orisa

  • Fixed a bug that caused some VFX to stop playing upon successive viewings of Orisa’s “Oh!” highlight intro in Hero Gallery

Reinhardt

  • Fixed a bug that caused charge knockback to be applied multiple times

Wrecking Ball

  • Fixed a bug that caused Wrecking Ball to get stuck in his slam animation if he landed on very flat, slippery surfaces
  • Fixed a bug that caused Wrecking Ball to be temporarily stuck when using Piledriver on slippery surfaces
  • Fixed a bug that caused Wrecking Ball to gain an incorrect amount of shields when using Adaptive Shield

Zarya

  • Fixed a bug that caused Zarya’s weapon and arm to animate oddly during her emotes when viewed in third person

Zenyatta

  • Fixed a bug that caused a delay in Zenyatta’s first person quick melee animation when interrupting his primary fire
