Game director Jeff Kaplan has confirmed that Törbjorn’s turrets are getting nerfed.


The announcement was made in a reddit thread discussing Törbjorn’s knack for spoiling the fun in Overwatch with his auto-aim turrets on console.

“[The problem with] turret is the 100% accuracy,” pointed out one reddit user. “On PC, it’s not as big an issue because everyone is more accurate due to mouse controls.”

Kaplan entered the thread, and assured players that the issue was being dealt with, saying, “In an upcoming patch, we will reduce the damage done by Torbjörn’s turret by 30% on Xbox One and PS4. PC will remain unchanged.”

There’s no confirmed date on the patch as of yet, but we do know that it’s expected “mid to late July.”
