New Skins

Overwatch 2 has now released worldwide, and Blizzard's latest entry into the series has improved in all aspects compared to it's original release.

With Overwatch's new season looming, players are making that one last push for their highest rank this season.

However, with the new season, one hero is getting vastly revamped and we've all got our eyes peeled on Brigitte!

When Is Brigitte Getting Reworked In Overwatch 2?

With the currently competitive season slowly winding down, players are trying to achieve their highest rank yet, as this will weep the most rewards when the season turns the tide.

For those that don't remember, Brigitte once broke Overwatch, and is thus the reason why role queue is within the game.

However, after heavy nerfs she's one of the more lackluster healers in the game for the time being. But, the new changes, as outlined below are going to bring her back into meta.



  • Brigitte now gains 100 restorable armor health pool for the duration of Rally
  • Brigitte no longer gradually builds temporary health like her nearby allies
  • Rally now upgrades her Barrier Shield, increasing both its size and health
  • Barrier health increased from 300 to 750 during the ultimate
  • During Rally, Shield Bash now impacts multiple enemies and briefly stuns them
  • Bonus movement speed reduced from 30 to 15%

Repair Pack

  • Range reduced from 30 to 25 meters

Developer Comments: Rally lost some of its power with the change from granting allies additional armor to temporary health, and overall took a relatively long time to build up its defensive benefits. This rework is intended to keep it as a defensive ultimate ability but with a more immediate impact due to gaining an increased armor health pool upfront and the enhanced barrier, which can be utilized to block for teammates while their temporary health builds or interrupt enemies with the stun.
