Bugs in Overwatch 2 are like a Hydra — you narrow off one head, and two extra seem. After login points, issues with account merges, backlash against the game’s new SMS Protect feature, and taking down the servers twice for emergency fixes, Blizzard needed to disable two heroes as bugs had been leaving them horrifically (albeit hilariously) damaged.

Bastion and Torbjörn are the heroes affected, impacting their final and common talents. Torbjörn has the lesser of the 2 bugs, leading to him being pulled from the aggressive queue however nonetheless obtainable in Quick Play. The bug is an easy glitch that enables gamers to increase the period of their Overload capacity in the event that they’re fast with the button press. All that outcomes is a sooner, harder-to-kill Torbjörn, which, given his relative lack of use within the six years Overwatch has been round, doesn’t imply a lot. (Apologies to The Verge’s resident Torbjörn Respecter, Richard Lawler.)
Bastion, nonetheless, has the way more severe bug affecting his final. Typically, triggering Bastion’s Artillery Configuration final helps you to name in just a few orbital strikes which are devastating for grouped-up foes. But with the bug, effectively… now you may carpet bomb. See beneath.

Bastion’s been utterly faraway from the sport because of this. You can’t even see the glitch for your self within the follow vary, which is a bummer as a result of these hapless follow vary robots completely have it coming. No phrase but on when both can be absolutely restored, however within the meantime, not less than followers can kind of log in to play the sport. For now.
