Image: Blizzard Entertainment

Supervision 2Blizzard Entertainment’s first beta is now live, giving players a taste of the big changes coming. These changes include a new team structure with five heroes, new heroes, a new ping system, and a lot of customization for multiple characters.

inside Overview two During the beta, players will find very different versions of Bastion, Doomfist, Orisa, and Sombra on the roster. Other heroes, such as Reinhardt, Zarya, Cassidy, and Winston, have also undergone skill changes, significantly updating their gear. There are generally fewer ways to stun enemies, and each character type has its own passive advantages: tanks have less recoil, injured characters get a speed boost, and all support characters automatically recover over time.

Here’s an overview of the hero changes Overview twobeta testing, and probably in the future.

fortress

The dreaded fort tower is undergoing some of its biggest changes Supervision 2† His self-healing abilities are gone, meaning he can no longer heal himself. He can still switch between scout mode (his mobile form) and assault mode (his tank form), but the latter is now making the fort move and cool down. Bastion also has a new alt-fire attack, the A-36 Tactical Grenade, which fires bombs that bounce off walls and explode when hitting an enemy or hitting the ground.

Bastion’s ultimate ability has also been reworked. Instead of transforming into a mobile tank with powerful artillery, Bastion switches to artillery mode and fires up to three powerful shells at the target.

Fist of Doom

Doomfist transforms from a damage dealer to a tank character, with increased health and a new energy block ability that protects him from forward attacks and boosts his rocket punch. Doomfist’s Hand Cannon, Rocket Punch, and Earthquake Slam abilities have been changed, and his Dragon Fist uppercut ability has been completely removed. Meteor Strike, Doomfist’s ultimate ability, now activates faster and slower enemies on impact.

shadow

Sombra’s editing makes her a more deadly hacker and more of a destructive salesman. While his hacking skill can now pause enemy skills for a shorter period of time, it will also reveal the location of hacked enemies to Sombra and the rest of his team. Blackened enemies also take more damage from the shadow itself.

EMP, Sombra’s ultimate ability, now deals 40% damage to enemies trapped within the pulse radius, breaking barriers such as Winston’s protective energy dome.

Centaur defense robot Orisa completely transformed Supervision 2, starting with removing his protective barrier shield and his suspension! Graviton carrying capacity. These abilities are replaced by the Energy Javelin, a new projectile that stuns and knocks back enemies, and the Javelin spins to block projectiles, knock back enemies and give Orisa a speed boost.

Replacing the previous Ultimate, the Supercharger, is a new one: Terra Surge. Orisa crouches down, destroying nearby enemies and dealing burst damage after a brief charge. It will also be enhanced by the Fortify effect during Terra Surge.

Orisa’s main fire, the enhanced fusion controller, has also changed. Now provides infinite ammo, but is thermodynamically controlled.

Reinhardt

As part of Blizzard’s plan to make tanks more capable fighters, Reinhardt now has two batches of his Flamestrike projectiles. He also has more control during the attack and can cancel it.

Winston

Winston’s Tesla Cannon now has an assisted fire mode: he can charge it up and unleash a concentrated electric ball.

Zarya

Zarya’s Personal Particle Barrier and Projection Barrier against teammates now have shared cooldowns, which means she can apply continuation bubbles to herself or to two teammates at the same time when needed.

Cassidy

Overwatch cowboy Cassidy lost his flashbang stun ability as it was more focused on damage: Mag Grenade. Close range grenades target nearby enemies, hence the name Magnetic Descriptor, and can stick to enemies, causing them to explode for extra damage.

Gone are the days of Mei freezing players with her Endothermic Blaster. His ice gun still deals damage and slows enemies, but no longer turns you into an ice sculpture. Now only Mei’s ultimate, Blizzard, will completely freeze opponents.

Brigitte

Brigitte’s Shield Bash no longer stuns enemies. It just pushes them back and deals damage.

Overwatch 2: All the hero reworks so far

Image: Blizzard Entertainment
Overwatch 2’s first beta is now live, giving players a taste of substantial changes coming to Blizzard Entertainment’s hero shooter. Those changes include a new five-hero team structure, a new hero, a new ping system, and substantial reworks to multiple characters.
In the Overwatch 2 beta, players will find very different versions of Bastion, Doomfist, Orisa, and Sombra on the roster. Other heroes, like Reinhardt, Zarya, Cassidy, and Winston, have also received ability changes that update their kit in key ways. In general, there are fewer ways to stun enemies, and each role type has its own passive perks: tanks receive less knockback, damage characters get a speed boost, and all support characters automatically heal themselves over time.
Here’s a breakdown of the hero changes in Overwatch 2’s beta test — and presumably going forward.
Bastion

The terrifying turret Bastion is seeing some of the biggest changes in Overwatch 2. His Self-Repair ability is gone, meaning he can no longer heal himself. He can still switch between Recon mode, his mobile form, and Assault mode, his tank form, but the latter now lets Bastion move and is on a cooldown. Bastion also has a new alt-fire attack, the A-36 Tactical Grenade, which fires a bomb that bounces off walls and explodes when it impacts enemies or hits the ground.
Bastion’s Ultimate ability has also been redesigned. Rather than transforming into a mobile tank with a powerful cannon, Bastion instead goes into Artillery mode, firing up to three powerful artillery shells that rain down on targets.
Doomfist

Doomfist moves from a damage role to a tank role, with a boost in health and a new Power Block ability, which protects him from the front and can empower his Rocket Punch. Doomfist’s Hand Cannon, Rocket Punch, and Seismic Slam abilities have been tweaked, and his shoryuken-style Uppercut ability has been removed completely. Meteor Strike, Doomfist’s Ultimate, will now activate faster and slow enemies upon impact.
Sombra

Sombra’s rework makes her a deadlier hacker and more of a damage dealer. While her Hack ability now disrupts enemy abilities for a shorter period of time, it also exposes a hacked enemy’s location to Sombra and the rest of her team. Hacked enemies also take more damage from Sombra herself.
EMP, Sombra’s Ultimate, now deals 40% damage to enemies caught in the pulse’s radius, in addition to disrupting barriers, like Winston’s protective energy dome.
Orisa

The centuaurlike defense robot Orisa is radically changing in Overwatch 2, starting with the removal of her Protective Barrier shield and her Halt! graviton charge ability. Replacing those abilities are Energy Javelin, a new projectile that stuns and knocks back enemies, and Javelin Spin, which blocks projectiles, pushes back enemies, and gives Orisa a speed boost.
Replacing her previous Ultimate, Supercharger, is a new one: Terra Surge. Orisa will hunker down, sweep in nearby enemies, and unleash a surge of damage after a brief charge. She’ll be boosted by the effects of Fortify as well during Terra Surge.
Orisa’s primary fire, Augmented Fusion Driver, is also changing. It now offers infinite ammo, but is governed by a heat mechanic.
Reinhardt
As part of Blizzard’s plan to make tanks more capable brawlers, Reinhardt now has two charges of his Fire Strike projectile. He also has more control during his Charge attack, and can cancel out of it.
Winston

Image: Blizzard Entertainment
Winston’s Tesla Cannon now has a secondary fire mode: He can charge it up and release a ball of focused electricity.
Zarya
Zarya’s personal Particle Barrier and teammate-targeted Projected Barrier are now on a shared cooldown, meaning she could apply back-to-back bubbles for herself or simultaneously for two teammates, if necessary.
Cassidy
Overwatch cowboy Cassidy loses his Flashbang stun ability for something more damage-focused: Magnetic Grenade. That short-range grenade will home in on nearby enemies — hence the magnetic descriptor — and can stick to enemies, dealing additional damage on explosion.
Mei

Mei’s days of freezing players with her Endothermic Blaster are over. Her ice gun still deals damage and slows enemies, but will no longer turn you into an ice sculpture. Only Mei’s Ultimate, Blizzard, will completely freeze opponents now.
Brigitte
Brigitte’s Shield Bash no longer stuns enemies, either. It will simply knock them back, dealing damage.
