Overwatch Experimental Patch Notes for the month of June bring attention to a few of our beloved heroes getting adjustments on the latest update.

In general, a handful of heroes have been patched with a 20% reduction rate of damage. The developers intended for players to optimize their hitscan range, depending on where their targets get hit within distance.

The group of heroes affected by the experimental patch notes include:

Bastion, Configuration: Recon

  • Weapon spread reduced from 1.5 to 1.2

D.Va, Call Mech

  • Damage area reduced from 3 to 2.5 meters
  • No longer builds ultimate charge while using Self Destruct until after her mech detonates

Soldier: 76, Heavy Pulse Rifle

  • Damage falloff is disabled while Tactical Visor is active

Widowmaker, Widow's Kiss

  • Damage falloff range increased from 60-85 to 70-100 meters

These heroes' main patch notes are focused on the damages they produce on the battlefield, with minor adjustments. Players will have to take into account their damage per second will be affected by how far the opponents are standing. The further they are the weaker the damage will be. Other experimental hero updates include a hitscan damage that scales to 30% at maximum falloff range, down from 50% for these heroes: 

  • Ashe
  • Baptiste
  • McCree
  • Wrecking Ball

These experimental patch notes allow players to try out the current update before going onto live matches for the community. For more information, check out Overwatch's experimental patch notes.
