The Overwatch Experimental Patch notes have been released, and there are updates for multiple different characters. Orisa, Reaper, Winston, and Wrecking Ball are all featured in this patch and have had their abilities altered in some form.

For Orisa, her defensive abilities have been buffed. When fortify is activated, it will help to prevent large bursts of incoming damage. The patch made the fortify skill more reliable for the player when it is used.

Reaper, on the other hand, had his attacking range increased. His shotguns deal a lot of damage, but they are only useful when in close proximity to your target. The patch allows him to have more range with his shotguns, thus allowing him to shoot further. However, the range shots will deal less damage than close shots.

After the patch, Winston has become a bit better defensively. His Health has been redistributed so that it is currently 150/350 instead of its old 100/400.

Lastly, Wrecking Ball was the last character a part of this patch. His knockback power was deemed too strong, so that has been reduced by 25%. The patch also lowers how far opponents will go back.

This patch seems to be like a minor one but it does fixes a few problems that players found within the game. The small power and ability tweaks will go a long way in making the game mroe fair and fun.
