The February 21 patch notes for Overwatch 2 are less extensive than the Season 3 update. However, some significant changes remain to be aware of, including two repairs for Symmetra and a modification to Legacy Credits. On February 7, Overwatch 2 Season 3 debuted, bringing many changes to the game. Most significant changes, including a new terrain and a revamped Mercy, were made at the start of the new era.
This time, the developers were able to focus more on the details and make little changes to raise the general standard of living. The two Symmetra updates, which restored the reality-bending defensive legend to her proper speed and potency, are the most notable.
This was accomplished by upgrading the Photon Barrier’s sluggish cast time and enabling her to set up fresh Sentry Turrets if the environment destroyed the existing ones. Before the upgrades between Season 3 and currently, both functions were functioning differently than planned. The second standout is a change in the color of Legacy Credits, the secondary in-game money, which will now be silver rather than gold inside the battle pass. The remaining patch notes for the February 7 release are as follows:
