Ana, Widowmaker & Junkrat Updates On PTR -

The Overwatch PC-only Public Test Realm has been updated with the next patch preparing to be released into the game. Players will be able to test the balance changes to a trio of Overwatch characters: Ana, Widowmaker and Junkrat. In addition, UI updates and a variety of general changes are also included in the patch.


  • Widow's Kiss
    • Scoping-in animation time has been reduced from 0.5 to 0.3 seconds

Developer Comments: This change will help Widowmaker acquire new targets more quickly and speed up her reaction time in fast-paced situations.


  • RIP-Tire
    • Ability now activates more quickly

Developer Comments: Junkrat can be an extremely effective hero in the right hands, but RIP-Tire often felt underpowered when compared to his counterparts.

Read the full PTR update notes on the Overwatch site.
