Overwatch players seem to be onboard for a Brigitte buff idea for Overwatch 2.

Brigitte has gone through buffs and nerfs since her debut and some fans want her back to her former self. Every time a developer tries to balance the character out it creates an outcry by Brigitte mains.

Developers have tried to balance Brigitte but she's a complicated hero to tune. Some believe her original build was her best. "I miss her, but I understand why they've nerfed her so much. I feel like if she didn't have shield bash, you could have bulky brig again. But what would you even replace it with? Shield bash just seems like the iconic part of her kit," Reddit user Jelang19 comments.

Some fans want her abilities and skills to have less cool down, more health, and armor abilities back to how they matched Torbjorn's skills, "It's cause Bliz wanted to remove all the extra armor providing stuff. They reworked Torb to remove his armor packs too." With Overwatch 2 in development, fans hope Blizzard will bring buffs to Brigitte in the near future once the sequel is released.
