New Tracer bug discovered

Overwatch 2 developer Blizzard Entertainment has acknowledged a bug that made Tracer an overpowered hero in the popular team-based first-person shooter.

Tracer, a character with the ability to blink in and out of battle and travel back in time to negate incoming damage, had her pulse pistols’ spread unintentionally reduced making the short-ranged weapon effective for long range.

“We uncovered a bug that was setting Tracer’s maximum weapon spread smaller than intended,” Blizzard Entertainment said in Overwatch 2’s latest patch note, stressing that they will have the bug corrected by reducing the spread by 15 percent.

“We’ll be monitoring the results of this one closely, as fixing it may have a significant impact on her overall effectiveness.”

The Tracer bug immediately landed the British-born hero as one of the most played damage characters among the top 500 players of Overwatch 2, but that would likely change as the game heads towards a new season with a bug fix.

Besides the Tracer bug fix, Blizzard Entertainment also addressed matchmaking concerns.

With the game previously hounded by mismatches in both casual and ranked games, the developer promised a better gaming experience moving forward.

“Added new matchmaker functionality that should create matches with a narrower range of player skills. The initial tuning of the system at the start of the season will not be aggressive, but we will be making continual tuning changes throughout the season,” Blizzard Entertainment said.

“The matchmaker now prioritizes placing similar groups with wide skill ranges into the same match, which means solo players will see a lower chance of being placed in those matches.”

“Fixed an issue where the matchmaker sometimes initialized new players’ competitive MMRs to a value that did not reflect their skill. Players will continue to adjust to their accurate MMR as they continue to play.”
