OVERWATCH fans aren't happy with the rate in which loot boxes are dishing out the goods, but there's better news on the horizon.
Overwatch developer Blizzard has given fans an update regarding loot boxes in the PS4, Xbox One and PC shooter.
Some Overwatch players believe that drop rates for the year of the Rooster event were lower than normal.
One person said that they'd received no skins for the event, which prompted a slew of responses in agreement.
However, Blizzard has told fans that this is not the case, confirming that drop rates were consistent among all events.
"The drop rates for Summer Games, Halloween Terror, Winter Wonderland and Year of the Rooster are all the same," game director Jeff Kaplan revealed.
The news comes after more clues surfaced for the release of Doomfist.
In the Numbani map, fans discovered 136 new models, as well as a 3D model in which the glass around Doomfist's case is smashed.
This suggests that Doomfist is inbound, or at least that Blizzard is getting ready to build the hype for the next major Overwatch character.
And since this discover, it was discovered that an additional slot has been readied in the character select screen.
Furthermore, Doomfist's music can now be heard playing on the menu screen.
Overwatch developer Blizzard recently announced plans to make changes to a couple of fan-favourite characters.
Fans of Winston and Roadhog will be interested to hear that both characters have been rebalanced.
Winston's huge head made him susceptible to critical hits, while Roadhog fans might be disappointed with the news that his hook is a bit less powerful.
Blizzard added the surprise changes to the latest Overwatch PTR update, which means Xbox One and PS4 players can expect the patch soon.
"The Roadhog changes overall reduce the power of his hook a bit, but his gun is now more effective when not using the hook," Blizzard explained.
"Winston's head hit volume was just abnormally big, making him take more damage than he otherwise should. This change brings it more in line with other heroes."
Here's the Overwatch PTR character changes in full...
- Spread decreased by 20%
- Targets are now pulled to a location 3.5 meters away, up from 2 meters.
- Cooldown increased from 6 to 8
- Critical hit volume reduced by 15%
