OW2 Patch Notes September 19

Overwatch 2 presents an immersive, futuristic, team-based action experience, set in an ultimate 5v5 battleground war. Players can engage in intense battles worldwide, embodying various unique characters, from time-jumping freedom fighters to beat-dropping battlefield DJs, among a roster of over 30 distinct heroes.

Beginning with the inaugural season, Overwatch 2 introduced a wealth of new content. Recently, a new hero with the powerful kit, Ilari, was unveiled. Now, Blizzard has unveiled the Overwatch 2 Patch Notes for September 19, outlining forthcoming enhancements and fresh content. This encompasses the highly anticipated Anniversary event, the return of the 2CP mode, an update on Hero Mastery, and much more.

A focal point of the Overwatch 2 Patch Notes for September 19 revolves around the Overwatch Anniversary event in 2023. Blizzard has disclosed that this event will span three weeks, each week featuring the reintroduction of a beloved game mode. Included are modes like Winter Wonderland, Battle for Olympus, Assault, Catch-a-Mari, Starwatch: Galactic Rescue, Summer Games, and Mischief & Magic.

Notably, the somewhat controversial 2CP mode from the original Overwatch makes a temporary return in Overwatch 2's refined 5v5 format. Players will have the chance to accumulate up to 3,000 OW credits, redeemable in the Anniversary shop, which boasts premium skins, including the highly sought-after Space Raider Cassidy and Hermes Lucio. Additionally, the Hero Mastery adjustments slated for the OW2 September 19 Patch pave the way for more competitive global leaderboards, with bonus scores calculated to the nearest tenth of a second.

OW2 Patch September 19 - GENERAL UPDATES


  • Completing a hero mastery course in the gold bonus tier will now grant bonus score based on how fast you completed the course. This bonus score is granted based on the time differential down to the nearest tenth of a second between your time and gold bonus tier. This new bonus time can be viewed in the finish line bonus tooltip on the course summary screen. This change affects all Hero Mastery courses played going forward and should allow the global leaderboards for each course to be more competitive.

OW2 Patch September 19 - BUG FIXES

  • Fixed in a previous update - Resolved an issue that caused jump pads to stop functioning after a round transition.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in Sombra’s EMP failing to apply to some targets.

Overwatch 2 Season 6 Roadmap

OW2 Mid-Season 6 Patch - GENERAL UPDATES


  • Owned entities (such as Torbj√∂rn's Turret, Symmetra's Teleporter, or Illari's Healing Pylon) now have a lower priority as ping targets than enemy heroes.

OW2 Mid-Season 6 Patch - HERO UPDATES



Developer Comment: This change rewards throwing accuracy with the Jagged Blade without directly affecting Junker Queen's self-healing.

Jagged Blade

Impact damage increased from 50 to 65.


Developer Comment: The Fortify cooldown has been adjusted so that the effective uptime remains the same. However, Orisa is no longer incentivized to cancel the ability early to begin the cooldown immediately, which makes the interval between uses consistent and more susceptible to counterplay.


  • Cooldown begins when the ability is activated instead of when it ends.
  • Cooldown increased from 12 to 16.5 seconds.
  • The overhealth bonus decreased from 125 to 100.

Developer Comment: Zarya often spends both barrier charges on herself as it is usually more consistent for building energy. The change to the Projected Barrier incentivizes using the barrier for her allies more often.

Projected Barrier

  • Health increased from 200 to 225.
  • Cooldown decreased from 10 to 8 seconds.
  • Size increased by 15%.



Developer Comment: Ashe has the longest total reload time of all heroes to balance out the advantage of being able to shoot after a partial reload. However, we are shortening it slightly to make the full reload from empty less punishing.

The Viper

  • Reload time decreased from .25 to .2 seconds.


Developer Comment: The A-36 Tactical Grenade is now more reliable after having its projectile size increased recently, so it doesn't need to be quite as damaging. The change to Configuration Artillery is a bug fix from what was intended for the ultimate, and we’ll monitor to see how this impacts Bastion’s performance.

A-36 Tactical Grenade

  • Impact damage decreased from 30 to 15.

Configuration: Artillery

  • Can no longer deal critical hits.


Developer Comment: Mei is still underperforming after her last set of changes, so we are increasing the effectiveness of primary fire and improving the quality of life in Deep Chill.

Endothermic Blaster

  • Damage increased from 65 to 70 per second.
  • Duration before slow falls off between primary fire hits increased from 0.5 to 0.6 seconds.

Deep Chill

  • Bonus damage can now also be triggered with Mei's quick melee.


Support Passive

  • Duration until support passive activates increased from 1.5 to 2 seconds.

Developer Comment: Support heroes have received individual improvements to their survivability and are quite strong overall, so we're reducing the impact of the role-wide passive.


Developer Comment: Regenerative Burst’s overall healing output has been too effective after gaining the bonus instant heal for low-health allies, so we are reducing its total healing slightly.

Regenerative Burst

  • Instant healing decreased from 50 to 40.
  • Heal over time decreased from 50 over 5 seconds to 40 over 4 seconds.

Developer Comment: The Protection Suzu no longer knocks back enemy heroes, so the projectile doesn't need to impact them either. This quality-of-life change prevents accidental activations when thrown into groups with both enemies and allies.

Protection Suzu

  • Now passes through enemy heroes.

OW2 Mid-Season 6 Patch - BUG FIXES


  • Fixed an issue with the Daybreak challenge being reset to 0 and not receiving progress after completing games.
  • The Save-a-Mari challenge now specifies the difficulty requirements for completion.
  • Resolved an issue where the Progression Level badge wasn't promoted. Players who have already reached levels where the badge should now be promoted to the correct badge.
  • Fixed a bug with the Option 'Relative Aim Sensitivity' not accepting a value of 0%.
  • Fixed an instance where equipped Competitive Titles would reset after a relog.
  • Fixed a bug with Matches Played showing as abandoned for matches played on another platform.
  • Fixed gaps and other environmental issues in Mischief and Magic.
  • Fixed navigation issues that could occur with a controller in Winston's Lab.
  • Fixed the missing sound effects for Training Bots respawning.
  • Fixed a bug on controller/gamepads that prevented some characters from flying diagonally.
  • Resolved a bug with the Overtime bar not burning all the way down in Competitive, making it difficult to tell when the round is over.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented players from immediately equipping Golden weapons after purchase.

  • Fixed an interaction with Genji's Deflect and Illari's Healing Pylon. Deflecting the pylon should now correctly heal Genji's allies.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the Stay Dead voice line from being equipped.
  • Resolved an interaction that allowed Illari to see underneath the map if they were swept by an Ana Sleep Dart while using Captive Sun.
  • Fixed an interaction with Illari's Pylon indicator being disabled if it was Hacked by Sombra.
  • Fixed an interaction with Symmetra's Teleporter that allowed Illari to place a Pylon in mid-air.
  • Fixed several instances that resulted in the Pylon being destroyed instantly after deploying.

Junker Queen

  • Fixed a bug where Junker Queen recalling Jagged Blade in the same frame as it stuck in an object (by holding Secondary Fire and aiming at an object the same distance away as the Knife's recall range) would cause a pingable knife to be stuck in the world.


  • Fixed a bug that made it difficult to Swift Step to allies in rooms with low ceilings.


  • Fixed a bug allowing friendly EMPs to destroy your Petal Platform.


  • Resolved a bug that prevented the damage increase from Zenyatta's Discord from being correctly applied while Ramattra was Blocking.
