Overwatch’s Torbjörn is getting a nerf in the next update

Overwatch has a reasonably well balanced line up of characters with the exception of a couple, one of those being Torbjörn.

His turret is devastating and if you come up against a team running more than one of those dwarfish engineers you are going to have a bad time.

Game Director Jeff Kaplan has confirmed that they are aware of this issue and will be addressing it in an upcoming update:

“In an upcoming patch, we will reduce the damage done by Torbjörn’s turret by 30% on Xbox One and PS4. PC will remain unchanged.

ETA – Mid to late July depending on 1st party certification times.”

I always found Bastion to be a bigger pain in the butt than Torbjörn however at least you can get around Bastion easily enough, Torbjörn not so much.

As further details regarding this patch are revealed we will be sure to update you.
