​Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan said Overwatch Patch 1.30 will include buffs for Mercy, Roadhog, Symmetra, and Reaper, in a developer update released Monday.

​​Kaplan didn't go into much detail about what the changes would be, but he did mention that Mercy will strictly be getting a buff to Valkyrie.


"Mercy will be getting a buff specifically to Valkyrie that we're experimenting with that should be pretty awesome for her and a welcomed change," Kaplan said.


Roadhog ​will have many changes to his hook properties and shotgun consistency. Roadhog has been consistently plagued with bugs surrounding his hook, and inconsistency with his shotgun. A fix for both of those problems would bring him into relevance in the current ​Overwatch meta. The changes to Mercy will likely not be very extreme because Blizzard is very conscious of how little power she needs to receive to become overpowered.
