​A patch update for Overwatch's Public Test Region updated with multiple hero changes, including the Scatter Arrow rework for Hanzo.

Hanzo's Scatter Arrow ability was reworked into a new ability called Storm Arrows. "Hanzo can now rapidly fire up to 6 arrows that deal reduced damage but are always fired at full power," the ​description for his ability read.


The patch notes included an explanation for the change, which was the ​topic of discussion for months. "Hanzo is now much more mobile with his new Lunge ability, and with the combination of the bow projectile speed increase and the new Storm Arrows ability he can now deal his high damage more consistently than ever before."

​​Included in the patch are nerfs to Tracer, whose Pulse Bomb damage was reduced from 400 to 300, and Junkrat, whose RIP-Tire's movement speed decreased slightly.


The PTR is playable on all PC servers of Overwatch.
