Overwatch Upcoming PTR Update Reverts Ana, Zenyatta Changes
Biotic Grenade will be restored.
Not too long after it introduced an update on the Public Test Realm server to severely nerf Ana, Blizzard Entertainment will release a new Overwatch build that reverts some of those changes.
While Ana’s damage has still been nerfed, Biotic Grenade’s impact damage and healing will be changed back to their previous values. This was most likely done in order to ensure better survivability for Ana who lacks any real health regeneration perks or shields.
Meanwhile, Zenyatta will also see a recent change – targetting enemies through barriers with Orb of Discord – reverted back to the normal status quo. You’ll no longer be able to target a Reinhardt or even Orisa behind their barriers. However, the weapon spread on Orb of Destruction has been removed, thus allowing your shots to actually go where you aim.
Finally, a change that’s currently live for Sombra is for allies to see hacked healthpacks through walls. This allows them to optimize their healing all the better (and build Ult charge for Sombra in the process).
