Outside of Uprising changes, the patch also fixes some amusing visuals bugs, such as in the case of Soldier: 76’s cape clipping through his body when using the push-up emote.

This update was released only on PC, but these changes will be included in a bigger patch for PS4, and Xbox One, due for release later.
