The damage hero passive has also been tweaked, as the movement speed buff was removed, but the reload speed buff increased to 35%.
  • The update also brings the new tank hero Ramattra to the game, the new Shambali Monastery map, and some improvements to the control game mode and competitive play.

Overwatch 2’s Season 2 update is now live and available to all players on all platforms. The update offers a significant amount of new content for fans of Blizzard’s popular hero shooter to enjoy, including the new tank hero Ramattra, the brand new escort map Shambali Monastery, and a fresh Season 2 Battle Pass with 80 layers of cosmetics to unlock.

On top of these additions, Season 2 also brings a number of hero changes, bug fixes, and more to the game to improve game balance and stability. The biggest of these are the buffs that Doomfist, one of the worst performing tanks in Overwatch 2, received. Doomfist’s overall lethality and survivability have increased significantly, making him more of a threat than he was before.

The update also includes some major nerfs to Sojourn, Overwatch 2’s new damage hero who has dominated higher ranks since the game’s launch in October. The Railgun’s maximum effective range and critical hit multiplier have both been reduced to make her feel less oppressive overall, but even with these changes she should still be a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.
