Overwatch PTR patch arrives following major Doomfist release reveal

New Overwatch Doomfist skins added to the PTR

The current Overwatch PTR has a lot going on.

There are some new hero changes on the PTR to test out.

There is no specific release date yet for Doomfist, but dataminers have discovered that the brawler will launch with 67 cosmetics and four more event-specific items for an unannounced Summer Games event. The PTR is only available on PC, and while the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Overwatch have since been updated, Doomfist is not yet available on console or widely on PC, but is likely to receive him within the month after Blizzard softens his edges.

One of his skills is the Rocket Punch, which functions like Reinhardt's Charge.

It appears that the development team made a decision to tone down the power of Rocket Punch.

Fans of the newly-released Doomfist will be saddened by the news that the hero's Rocket Punch has seen its total travel distance has been reduced by about 20% since he first went live.

According to Polygon, "Overwatch" players may find that Akanda Ogundimu, who is better known as the new PTR character Doomfist, has two legendary skins.

The Flashbang now slows targets significantly once they are stunned.

Lastly, Reaper's Shadow Step has been tweaked too, though compared to the other changes applied, the alterations for this ability are relatively minor with the VO and SFX getting reduced.

Another tank - Reinhardt for instance, now has a 10 percent increase in his Swing speed alongside an enhanced responsiveness on his Hammer. Secondly, Reinhardt's Charge has been tweaked so that impacting another charging hero (such as Doomfist or an enemy Reinhardt) no longer deals damage to both characters. Both heroes will still get knocked down though.

"Overwatch's" Zarya performing her ult. That being said, it looks like the tank Zarya may have snagged a substantial chunk of the tweak as her ultimate has become more risky than it actually is.

The Graviton Surge of Zarya now disables all movement abilities of affected targets, acting much like Junkrat's Trap.
