The latest Overwatch Public Test Region patch added long-awaited fixes for Reinhardt's ultimate, Earthshatter.
PTR includes hero changes for Brigitte and Reinhardt.— Overbuff (@Overbuff) August 22, 2018
* Brigitte now gets knocked down when using Shield Bash on charging targets like Rein and Doomfist.
* Earthshatter will always travel inclines and around the payload (plus a few other changes)
Reinhardt's ultimate, Earthshatter, will now hit enemies consistently near walls. It will also always travel up inclines and around the payload. "
Earthshatter had many bugs that would prevent it from working as intended. Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan promised changes for Reinhardt would come early April, but significant fixes for Earthshatter were only added in Wednesday's patch.
Brigitte's Shield Bash was nerfed in the patch, too. Players entering the PTR can also experience a new control map, Busan, and try out Mystery Deathmatch.
