Overwatch 2 – Junker Queen, Brigitte, Zarya, and Moira Buffed in New Patch

Junker Queen receives additional healing from Wounds, Brigitte's Barrier Shield HP increases, and Zarya gets reduced Energy degeneration.

Posted By | On 06th, Jan. 2023

Overwatch 2

A new patch is now available for Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch 2, adding the limited-time mode Battle for Olympus and some changes to hero balance. The first is Junker Queen, whose Adrenaline Rush passive will now heal for the remaining Wound damage if any enemy dies while wounded.

It’s pretty significant and should provide some additional tankiness. Carnage, the axe melee attack, also receives a reduced cooldown of two seconds for every enemy hit. Jagged Blades thrown impact damage has been reduced to 50 but now adds a 30 damage Wound that stacks with Quick Melee Wounds.

Zarya’s energy degeneration is reduced from 2.2 to two per second. After gaining energy, the delay before degeneration begins has increased to two seconds. For Supports, Brigitte’s Barrier Shield HP has increased from 250 to 300, while Moira’s Biotic Orb now restores a small amount of Biotic Energy when dealing damage.

For more details on all the bug fixes, check out the patch notes below.
