Blizzard outlines changes for infamous Overwatch hero Bastion


It's time; Blizzard is addressing Overwatch hero Bastion. Is there another character as infamous?

Broadly speaking, the changes being tested may make Bastion less of a hide-and-team-kill assassin, and more of mobile, sturdier and consistent turret.

The possible changes include removing headshots while in turret/sentry mode and increasing bullet spread, theoretically reducing his devastating damage at range. This would be balanced with unspecified increased survivability.

Healing/repairing on the move is another change being tested, although this would be resource-meter limited, as with D. Va's shield. Bastion's machine gun magazine capacity may be increased in walkabout mode too.

Here are the changes in Overwatch lead designer Geoff Goodman's words, (spotted by Metabomb):
