The latest Overwatch Public Test Region update now includes a new icon in the kill feed that will note when an enemy is killed with a melee attack. 

Players logging into the Overwatch PTR might notice a new icon appearing in the kill feed. Prior to this update, if an enemy was killed by a quick melee attack, there would be no special icon to indicate it. Enemies who are now killed by a quick melee attack will have an icon of a fist shown in the kill feed next to their name.


The update is minor, but a number of changes went live over the course of 2018 that improved the player experience at the price of less lore. 


Fans are anticipating a new update, now that the Winter Wonderland event is over and the  Lunar New Year event is on the horizon.
