With the recent reworks to heroes in Overwatch 2, you might find your playstyle changing depending on how drastic the changes were. A few heroes have received major reworks, making them a bit more complicated to use.
If you’ve used any of the heroes we’ve included in this list, then now’s the time to study its changes.
Top Tips for Every Hero Rework in Overwatch 2
Without further ado, here’s a breakdown of the major rewords in Overwatch 2 heroes and how you can adapt to these changes:
First off is Bastion who has received some of the major changes in the game. For one, his ultimate ability no longer transforms him into a mobile tank but will transform him into a powerful cannon instead. This way, Bastion will go into Artillery mode so he can fire three powerful shells on a wide area.
Additionally, his Self-Repair ability has been removed, so he no longer has the ability to heal himself. Lastly, he has received a new alt-fire attack where he fires a bomb that will ricochet off walls and will only explode if it hits an enemy or the ground.
Sombra’s rework made her more of a DPS role now, prominent in her Hack ability which now also reveals the location of a hacked enemy to Sombra and her team. This means that it will be a lot easier for the entire team to gank on that enemy. Additionally, Sombra now deals more damage to her hacked enemies.
Lastly, her ultimate will now deal 40% damage to enemies inside the pulse’s radius. It can still disrupt barriers, but it has become a mix of both utility and damage.
Cassidy no longer has the Flashbang stun ability. Instead, he now has the Magnetic Grenade which will home in on enemies and even stick to them, dealing damage upon exploding.
Doomfist now plays the role of a tank, receiving a major boost in his health alongside a new Power Block ability. His abilities were also tweaked, and his Uppercut ability has been removed. To compensate for this, his ultimate will now activate faster and can even slow down enemies caught in the area of impact.
Orisa has received some major reworks to her kit. For one, she no longer has the Protective Barrier shield which is now replaced with the Energy Javelin which is a projectile that can knock back enemies and stun them. Meanwhile, here Halt! Ability is also replaced with the Javelin Spin which will give Orisa a speed boost upon blocking projectiles.
Moreover, her ultimate has been replaced with a new one called Terra Surge in which she will sweep nearby enemies and after a brief charge, release a massive surge of damage. Lastly, she now uses Augmented Fusion Driver as her primary fire which has infinite ammo but will overheat if used too much.
Mei’s rework is a nerf – and a major one at that! Specifically, her ice gun will no longer freeze enemies but can still deal decent damage and slow them down. Her only means of freezing enemies will be her ultimate.
Hogwarts Legacy: How Good Is The Character Creation?
Celebrity is as celebrity does.
Hogwarts Legacy is just around the corner, and if you’re one of those people who always expected an owl to crash into your bedroom to give you a letter of invitation to the school of Witchcraft and Wizardry then congratulations, you’re still a child at heart. One of the many things that muggle-borns are keeping a close eye on is the character creation as this always has been a huge selling point for gamers who wish to see themselves in the game their playing. No argument needed there as it simply adds to the immersion. We’ll see just how good the character creation is by giving it a good wangle!
How Good Is The Character Creation In Hogwarts Legacy?
As the game is still said to be a “work in progress” not everything is set in stone just yet. There’s plenty of options to go through however so let’s see if you can either look like a Korean pop idol of some sort or a child that looks like a melting candle.
So the first thing you will notice once you go to the character creation screen is the plethora of Presets offered to you. This is a good start for players who just want to dive right in and explore the second-floor girls’ lavatory.
Once you have chosen your base look you will be taken to the Facewear section where you can choose your facial structure from a set of fifteen portraits. Some players may prefer having sliders when it comes to specific parts of their custom character’s face as they really have every intention to see a carbon copy of themselves in-game.
When you’re satisfied with the shape that you chose you can also go and specify a skin color and some glasses for your character. Hogwarts is known to have a rather diverse community of students so go be yourself and choose which suits you the best!
Moving on to Hairstyles you have two customization choices, your hair color, and the actual style of well, your hair! There can only be so many options for hair in any game as it’s quite difficult to build this from scratch compared to sculpting the bridge of your nose or adjusting the height of your temple.
Hair can be quite a delicate part of customization, especially when not all options are available to you. Nevertheless, you still have enough choices here to either look like Anton Chigur or The Daywalker. Props to you if you got any of that!
Next is the Complexion tab, you have the option to give yourself a slight blush if or some freckles and moles if you have any. We weren’t kidding earlier either when we said that you can look like you aged prematurely. That’s what the scars and markings are for! At the end of the day it’s all about getting your features down to a T!
On the following tab we have Eyebrows. Most options that we went through gave us the impression that everyone back in the 19th century had time to shave, and that’s a good thing! You can tell a lot from a person’s eyebrows after all. Just don’t get caught looking!
After choosing the shape that fits your fancy you can go and apply any color to it, most likely you will choose the same color you chose for your hair but hey, it’s your choice that matters here so go crazy! The same goes for your eyes as well.
For the final touch, you have four more options. You have two choices for your character’s voice which should’ve had more in our opinion. You can also change the pitch of that voice to resemble yours. Lastly you have your difficulty selection which is pretty straightforward, you also have your character name and which dormitory you want to be sent to.
The character creation in our opinion is good enough where it stands. It’s not great but it’s definitely not bad either. Having the option to choose a preset or create your own character completely from scratch (sliders and all) is a recent concept that players have been searching for a lot lately and it’s much appreciated that Avalanche Software gave that to us.
While others are happy with the choices they’ve been given, we can still see some possible complaints that will go after the Facewear section as limiting your features to only fifteen options is a very daring move given that there’s a chance that a player out there might not get the look they’re after.
It all just goes back to the sliders since this gives the player a more precise selection when it comes to making adjustments to their looks, plus there weren’t too many options for body-type either. It’s not a long list of shortcomings but you will have to take these into consideration if you’re the kind of gamer who spends more than an hour in the customization screen. We’re still looking forward to the game however so don’t let any of that bring you down. Thank you, and see you in the world of magic!
