Overwatch favourite getting nerfed

Posted on June 29, 2016

There is no doubt that the dwarf known as Torbjörn with his incredibly effective turret is one of the more popular, if not overused, characters you can play as in Overwatch.

The multiplayer shooter from Blizzard features any game modes where defense is super important, and as the auto-aim turret is able to fire with complete accuracy, it can make it difficult for players trying to counter it.

Game director Jeff Kaplan said in a Reddit thread titled “Torbjorn is utterly ruining the game on PS4″ that a patch next month will reduce the character’s effectiveness substantially. According to an interview with Kotaku, he states that “In an upcoming patch, we will reduce the damage done by Torbjorn’s turret by 30% on Xbox One and PS4. PC will remain unchanged,”

The update is set to come out in mid-late July, with competitive mode still set to come out sometime in the coming days.
