Overwatch’s latest patch has dramatically overhauled how support character Symmetra works, as well as added new social features that allows players to “endorse” others and seek out players of specific roles.
Symmetra’s photon projector no longer locks onto enemies, instead emitting in a straight beam, similar to Zarya’s primary weapon. Damage takes one second longer to ramp up, but its range is increased by 10 meters.
Symmetra’s secondary fire, those large orbs of energy, has also been retooled. Instead of phasing through enemies, they now explode on impact, damaging enemy teammates standing nearby.
