Heroes changes in Overwatch 2 - 15th December patch

Overwatch’s latest tank Ramattra got some buffs to his Nemesis form and had the long cooldown on his Void Barrier reduced. Doomfist got nerfed this patch after getting buffed at the start of Season 2. His Rocket Punch cooldown has been increased slightly while his passive’s health gained has gone down. Orisa’s ultimate Terra Surge got a buff which lets it go through shields while her damage falloff range was increased.

Even after some nerfs to Soujourn's long range damage in the last patch, fans were still unhappy. Blizzard decided to nerf her again and now her Railgun’s Primary fire spread has been increased and her Power Slide cooldown has been increased as well. Tracer was also nerfed with Pulse Pistol’s damage going down.

Ana’s primary fire effectiveness was increased along with the duration of her Biotic Grenade. Kiriko saw yet another nerf to her Suzu with a duration decrease.

Roadhog is yet to receive a nerf but a developer commented that Roadhog's one shot potential shall be removed and he shall receive a light rework in the January 2023 update. Brigitte is slated for a rework as well.
