Overwatch Experimental Hero Updates

The next experiment begins! There will be the 2-2-2 Role Queue ruleset so that you can get a feel for how these balance changes might affect the live game.

Experimental Genji

Nerfing the burst that Genji had. So the new numbers in his ability are:



  • Damage decreased from 30 to 28

Secondary Fire

  • Recovery increased from 0.65 to 0.75

Experimental Moira

Buffing Moira significantly to give her the possibility to get more unexpected and more supportive to other players. Read her upgraded abilities to get the point.

Biotic Grasp

  • Attach angle reduced by 37%

Biotic Orb

Damage Orb

  • Damage radius reduced from 4 meters to 3 meters
  • Projectile slow amount after a target is found increased from -72.5% to -80%
  • Damage-per-second now scales based on how close the target(s) are to the Biotic Orb
    • Between 0 – 1 meter: It will deal 150 damage per second
    • Between 1 meter – 3 meters: Scales linearly down from 150 to 25 damage per second
    • Note: The normal damage orb on live is always 50 damage per second
  • The total potential damage the Biotic Orb can deal is unchanged: 200 damage total


  • Now phases out all allies within 6 meters (and self) for 1 second after exiting Fade
    • Phasing makes a hero immune to all damage and effects. It will work exactly like Reaper’s Wraith Form or Moira’s own Fade effect in this regard

Moira was one of the popular support champions and now she may be even better. So if you are one of those who love Moira check her out in Overwatch Experimental.
