Overwatch PTR patch sees rare Reaper, McCree buffs, as well as Roadhog changes

June 01, 2017 1 min read

After all of the excitement with the new lore-heavy level coming to Overwatch this week by way of the PTR, you might have missed a few other key changes.

McCree got a straight buff for his ultimate, Reaper no longer sports those shiny health orbs in a rare buff (he regains 20% health now when dealing damage to heroes as a baseline), and Roadhog had his head hitbox reduced and his Scrap Gun was tweaked.

Using the word rare for a Reaper change is kind of funny, as the melancholy stealth character just recently got a buff for his Wraith Form that automatically reloads your weapons after its use. But any alterations he's gotten since launch have mostly been incremental -- in fact, he's been one of the least messed with heroes in the game.

Hopefully this is a sign of things to come, as Reaper is currently one of the least used heroes in competitive play and has one of the worst winrates. McCree is slightly more popular in ranked, but has a worse winrate than Reaper in many cases.
