Don’t expect any new content in Overwatch update This is a small patch aimed at working out a few kinks with a handful of the game’s heroes. Most of the bug fixes center around Echo, the newest addition to the roster, but there are also notable fixes for Junkrat, D.Va, and Tracer.

You’ll be pleased to hear that the bug causing Echo to drop the flag in CTF has been fixed. There are also two fixes for Echo’s Duplicate, including one that resulted in her use of Winston’s voice after completing Primal Rage. It was a little funny, but most of the time it just felt odd.

The other fixes in update are relatively minor. The bug with Junkrat’s weapon accuracy statistic has been fixed, as has the bug where D.Va and her mech spawned facing the wrong direction. Finally, the bug where Tracer blinks to the wrong location on Hollywood has been fixed.
