Torbjorn is Getting a Rework Complete with a Self-Deploying, Self-Upgrading Turret
VG247 has an exclusive look at some big changes coming for one of the most defensive characters in Overwatch: Torbjorn. The goal is to make him feel like a viable choice from the get go, not just after setting up his turret, upgrading it and armoring up his companions. With that in mind, he's getting a big overhaul.
Here's what's currently in testing:
- Torbjorn is able to "throw" a turret out a short distance (about the same distance as Tracer's Pulse Bomb) and it will self-deploy and upgrade to level 2. No hammering required.
- This allows Torb to go back on offense quickly
- The team is trying to tune Molten Core to be a normal ability but it still may not make the cut
- As yet, there is no ultimate named or described
- No word when a Torb rework will come into the game
