Another Overwatch update is on its way to players on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. Overwatch update 18.104.22.168 is very small, aiming to provide bug fixes for just a couple of issues. On top of that, the developers have also included a new tweak that should allow players to earn Achievements more easily. Keep reading about these changes with the Overwatch patch notes featured below.
Overwatch patch notes | Update 22.214.171.124
The Overwatch update version 126.96.36.199 released today, March 24, 2020, and is mainly centered around bug fixes. This is a tiny update, especially when compared to patch version 188.8.131.52, which released earlier this month. There are no balance adjustments or substantial changes this time around. Instead, this update simply addresses two minor bugs.
The first bug involves pathing issues: The enemy AI previously had a problem following paths in Archives missions. This should no longer be a problem. The second bug simply turns down the volume of Slicer’s pre-attack sound in Uprising. Apparently players found its sudden spike in volume to be distracting. Either way, it should much more subdued now.
On top of the following bug fixes, the Overwatch team has also made a change to Achievements or Trophies: All Achievements listed in the game’s Career Profile page can now be earned through Quick Play Classic. It’s a small change, but it should help players track down in-game goals much more quickly — or simply help pad out their Gamerscores with less effort.
If you’re hungry for official details, here are the full Overwatch patch notes for update 184.108.40.206 as provided by the developers at Blizzard.
- Achievements listed on the Career Profile page can now be earned in Quick Play Classic
- Fixed several AI pathing issues in the Archives missions
- Reduced volume of Slicer’s pre-attack sound in Uprising as they were previously a bit too prominent
