Undocumented Changes[edit | edit source]
- Added a charge tower to the firing range.
- Revenant and Pathfinder now take slightly less damage from Caustic's gas (proven to be a bug).
- Reactive skins now evolve when the player kills DUMMIE in the Firing Range.
- Increased health cost for Octane’s Stim from 10 to 12.
- The “Get 12 assists” daily challenge has been changed to both kills and assists, while remaining at 12, if you are to get it on a certain day.
Designer Notes[edit | edit source]
- The intent of these changes is to create openings where enemies can breach Wattson's positions. It is still possible for Wattson players to hold a position with a trophy indefinitely, but that should come at the cost of using Ultimate Accelerants.
- Increasing Wraith’s tactical cooldown has proven to be ineffective at curbing her exceedingly high win rate and kill rate. These changes are meant to disincentivize Wraith players from using Phase Walk as a “get out of jail free” card, and move it into more of a repositioning and scouting ability.
