Looks like Everyone’s Favorite Dwarf Is Getting Nerfed.

Overwatch’s Torbjorn has been causing controversy this week on Reddit. Members of the Overwatch community have created many threads discussing Torbjorn’s strength on the Console version of the game. The argument is that his turret locks down objectives and is too difficult to kill when you cannot communicate efficiently with your team.

The threads on Reddit caught Blizzard’s attention and Game Designer (Jeff Kaplan) gave a response.

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

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

A 30% damage reduction seems like just the right change to knock the currently overpowered Torbjorn back down to everyone elses level.
