A new Overwatch patch has gone live on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch, along with a series of bug fixes – including some big ones for Genji and Tracer.

The two damage heroes have felt a little different as of late with Tracer being unable to Blink properly while in certain rooms. Meanwhile, Genji was buffed due to a bug that allowed the cyborg ninja to inflict double damage with his Swift Strike Dash attack.

As Dexerto previously reported, the Tracer bug plagued Overwatch streamer ‘Kragiee’ during a match on Junkertown where he was unable to Blink forward while in a small room on first point.

Blizzard did acknowledge the bug’s existence and placed it on the official forum’s “Known Issues” list. Now, Tracer players should be able to Blink around like normal and be a menace in the enemy backline.

The next major bug fix comes for Genji’s Dash, which many in the community discovered could deal double damage if timed right.

This bug was a major deal as it drastically changed up the amount of follow-up Genji players would need in order to finish a target off – or better yet – use it to their advantage to get even more Dash resets.

With Genji back to normal, it will be interesting to see how the hero performs and if the bug had an inadvertent effect on the character’s win rate.

Additionally, a bug that prevented skill ratings from displaying properly in the career profile has also been fixed, so players annoyed by not seeing their SRs for past seasons can finally do so again.

Genshin Impact is home to loads of colorful characters, but you’ll need to spend a lot of Primogems if you wish to increase your chances of obtaining the game’s elusive five-star units. Fortunately, there is an easy way to grab a lot of Primogems without breaking the bank. 

MiHoYo’s free-to-play title, Genshin Impact allows players to explore every inch of its vast open-world completely free of charge. In fact, you can get through the entirety of the game’s current content without spending a penny. However, if you wish to increase your roster of characters and gain access to some incredibly powerful weapons, then you’ll need to score yourself a lot of Primogems.

These twinkling gems are used to purchase the game’s Acquaint Fates and Intertwined Fates, which are then used to Perform Wishes (Gacha). Primogems are also used to refill the game’s energy/stamina system (Original Resin), making them vital to both acquiring new characters and farming the game’s deadly dungeons. While you’ll naturally get this in-game currency as you progress through the game, there is an even easier way to add more Primogems to your account.
