Bug Fixes[edit | edit source]

General
  • [PC Only] Fixed a bug that prevented Overtime music from playing on Escort and Assault/Escort maps, if the payload was nearing the final checkpoint
  • [PC Only] Fixed a bug where display settings weren’t always saved after restarting the client
  • [PC Only] Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the in-game UI to display incorrectly at 4k resolutions
  • [PC Only] Fixed a bug where sometimes the wrong player level would appear in the Social menu
Maps
  • [PC Only] Fixed an issue with collision not blocking line of sight on certain areas of Nepal
Heroes
  • [PC Only] Fixed a bug that caused Mercy’s Caduceus Staff beam to disconnect from its target if the player a) quickly switched between healing and damage beams by holding down both mouse buttons and/or b) was facing away from the target at the time of the switch
  • [PC Only] Fixed even more bugs that allowed Reaper to Shadow Step to unintended locations on certain maps
  • [PC Only] Fixed a bug that caused Winston’s melee attack during Primal Rage to inconsistently hit targets in range
  • [PC Only] Fixed a bug that sometimes caused Zarya’s alternate fire to scale incorrectly with her damage boost modifier
Competitive Play
  • [PC Only] Fixed a bug that caused the “Top 500” icon to incorrectly display for certain players in various places throughout the game UI
  • Fixed an issue where if you left and rejoined an in-progress Competitive Play match, the game would still track the match as a loss in your placement match history and when determining the amount of Skill Rating you receive for completing a match even if your team won
    • Note: You must be present for the conclusion of the match to be eligible for the win. If you leave a match and do not rejoin again before it’s over, it will count as a loss both in placement match history and when calculating your Skill Rating adjustment.
  • Fixed an issue where you would still receive a Competitive Play “leave” penalty even if you rejoined a match and completed it
    • Note: If you leave a single Competitive Play match more than 3 times, you will receive a Competitive Play “leave” penalty even if you complete the match.
