A new patch has been taken live in Overwatch that brings the updates from last week’s Experimental card update into the live game.
The patch is basically a carbon copy of what was introduced in the April 1 Experimental mode patch, with a nice buff for Ashe players, nerfs for Reinhardt, Mei, and more updates.
Apparently, developers decided that a week was long enough for the changes to marinate in the quasi-PTR mode and brought them to the main game with a patch on April 6.
Ashe sees the magazine size of her Viper Rifle increased from 12 to 15 rounds, along with the maximum spread of unscoped shots going from four to six.
Players will also find it quicker to shoot unscoped after looking through the sights with the patch, and the ability to reload much quicker following a focused shot.
Pharah’s also getting a pretty significant buff, which is actually a revert of a previous nerf developers handed to her.
The direct impact damage from her rockets has been reduced from 55 to 40, but, the explosion, or AOE damage, is increased from 65 to 80 – letting players rely less on precise aiming.
