These hero updates have been made in regards to max health adjustments to help tune the heroes' powers accordingly. Up until now the changes to health were done in increments of 50 HP, now they will be done in 25 HP increments. The community will see how these changes in health, ammo, and cadence, will change the game.

Here are the Hero Updates for this patch:

Baptiste:

Biotic Launcher:

Primary Fire

  • Recovery time reduced from 0.45 to 0.38 seconds
  • Damage reduced from 25 to 24

The team at Blizzard says they are working on adjusting Baptiste's Biotic Launcher's firing cadence so that it will make it quicker to deal with damage and land more useful healing grenades.

Secondary Fire

  • Recovery increased from 0.8 to 0.9 seconds
  • Healing increased from 50 to 60

Brigitte:

  • Base health increased from 150 to 175

McCree:

  • Base health increased from 200 to 225

Peacekeeper

General

  • Reload time reduced from 1.5 to 1.2 seconds

Mei:

Cryo-Freeze

  • Now restores 15 ammo per second

Ice Wall

  • Cooldown lowered from 13 to 12 seconds

The Blizzard team says that they have made Mei's primary ammo more expensive and it was noticeable that she spent more time out of ammo, especially when she is unable to reload in Cryo-Freeze. To help this, they have made her able to regain some ammo during Cryo-Freeze.

Symmetra:

  • Base shields increased from 100 to 125

Widowmaker:

  • Base health reduced from 200 to 175
