Overwatch 2 Nerfs List: Patch Notes and Details

This guide shares the Overwatch 2 November 15th update patch notes, detailing all hero nerfs coming to the game.

There is no denying that Overwatch 2’s launch was plagued with a plethora of issues. And while the devs were busy rolling out patch after patch, removing Heroes like Bastion while restricting some from Ranked Play, like Torbjorn, removing game maps, dealing with DDoS attacks, and stabilizing the game servers. The devs were happy with the Hero balance and were not planning to make any changes before Season 2. But now that most of the issues are sorted out, and heroes and maps taken out of the game are finally back. The devs have decided on an early Hero balance, and we are here to talk about it with our Overwatch nerfs list guide as we discuss the patch notes and other details.

The first wave of the Overwatch 2 nerf list includes Sombra, Genji, Zarya, D.Va, and Kiriko. Well! That wasn’t unexpected as we personally found Genji, Sombra, and D. Va a little better than others. And seeing the Overwatch 2 upcoming update’s patch notes looks like even the devs took notice of that. 

That being said, here is the Overwatch 2 November 15th update patch notes detailing the upcoming nerfs to Heroes.
