Overwatch 2 Season 11 Early Patch Notes


  • Cassidy

Cassidy is receiving an upgrade to his magnetic grenade which changes it to function like his old flashbang and slow targets. No more homing in on targets around strange corners. Furthermore, the devs stated they would be making several QoL upgrades to Cassidy to make playing him a lot more intuitive.

  • Reaper

Reaper will mostly be seeing a major update to his Shadow Step, but the changes they have planned are apparently technically challenging. Furthermore, they’re adding some power to his kit so he can be relevant in non-tank-buster roles as well. Reaper mains are in for an exciting new update.

  • Symmetra

The last hero we have some official information on is Symmetra, who will be receiving some increased power to her primary fire so she can remain a relevant threat as a DPS character.


Season 11 brings with it a brand new Push map called Runapasi and it’s set in the Peruvian Andes where Illari is supposed to be from. The team at Blizzard said that “This map features tight streets and nods to the local culture, including the Inti Warrior Historical Museum and Monument,” and that the map will be available in both Quick Play and Competitive when Season 11 gets underway this week.

The Colosseo map received a major change as the glass barriers near the TS-1 Push bot’s starting point have been removed. The map also gets some other updates such as more space being added near the first checkpoint on each side of the map, making environmental kills much harder. A new health pack has been added and a new ramp leading to the balcony was also added. Lastly, we now have more cover near the final checkpoint.


Here’s a quick summary of all the events to look forward to

  • Pink Mercy Skin: The Pink Mercy Skin will be released in a bundle on June 25th alongside the Rose Gold Mercy skin. This package comes with title cards and unique player icons as well. The proceeds for these bundles go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
