HERO UPDATES[edit | edit source]

Armor

  • Beam-type damage reduction against Armor health pools increased from 20% to 30%

In an environment with less pervasive barriers, some Damage heroes have become increasingly lethal. As such, we’re now looking to reduce damage outputs accordingly. As a cascading effect, this also introduces a need to reduce healing outputs for some Support heroes, as there’s less damage being dealt overall.
