Overwatch released a small patch on Wednesday, January 27, that should save players from falling to their dooms in what should be a safe spot on Rialto.

The latest patch is nowhere near as huge as the February 26 patch, which included a ton of balance updates for the game’s heroes.

It does, however, fix several bugs, including one that was really getting into the way of players on Rialto.

The boats docked in Rialto’s second section usually provide a safe space for players to stand on top of when attacking or defending, but recently players have discovered they may not be as solid as they appear.
