Overwatch Update 3.06 Explained

This update came with a few character tweaks most lying in the tank roles with one exception. Orisa got a buff to the Fortify skill which now prevents the hero from taking critical headshot damage while the skill is active. Winston's health/armor ratio is redistributed now to 350/150 from its original 100/400, this change will give him a greater resilience against shotguns, beams, and weapons with a high fire rate. Rumble received a 25% debuff to the knockback on his grappling claw bringing it more in line with other heroes' capabilities. Rounding out the list is Reaper who received a buff to his range but at the cost of his max shot damage.

A few small bugs got taken out with this new patch. Previously, if players would skip the kill camera their hero models would ragdoll through the terrain. Along with that, there was an issue with the map collapsing too early in the Bounty Hunter game mode and Tracer characters had the ability to escape Junkertown. Though some gamers may not have noticed they no longer have to worry because these bugs have now been fixed.

Overwatch Patch 3.06 is now live across all platforms. Players can start up their games and test out these new character changes for themselves.
