With the Overwatch 2 PvP Beta having gone live, players are discovering a number of reworks that have been rolled out to some of their favorite heroes.

Mercy has always been a popular Support hero for a number of reasons. Everything from her abilities to her aesthetics has made her a frequent addition to any match. With the launch of the Overwatch 2 PvP Beta, a number of heroes have been given some overhauls and reworks.

While plenty of changes and additions will be coming to Overwatch 2, as detailed in the first set of patch notes for the beta, players are keen to find out just how their favorite heroes will be adjusted.

Mercy Overwatch 2 Rework Detailed

Some Overwatch fans might have mixed feelings over the extent of Mercy's rework. Unlike some of the other heroes, like Doomfist, Mercyisn't getting much in terms of an overhaul.

As it stands, the following changes have been made to Mercy as part of the Overwatch 2 PvP Beta patch:


  • Now increased the Support passive healing by 50%

While it's not an extensive change, increasing passive healing by 50% certainly has the potential to make some difference out on the field.

Of course, Mercy isn't the only hero who's been given a rework for Overwatch 2. The likes of Orisa, Moira, and more have received some significant changes.
