Torbjorn’s Turret is getting a damage nerf in mid to late July on Xbox One and Playstation 4. This comes from Blizzard’s Jeff Kaplan responding to a Reddit thread titled “Torbjorn is utterly ruining this game on PS4”.
Kaplan states, “In an upcoming patch, we will reduce the damage done by Torbjörn’s turret by 30% on Xbox One and PS4. PC will remain unchanged.” The patch will release “mid to late July depending on 1st party certification times.”
Torbjorn is a defensive character who wields a rivet gun and hammer. He can also build an upgradeable turret and collect parts to make shields for his team. The accuracy and power of Torbjorn’s turret are one of many balance issues fans have been concerned with since the game’s launch on May 24th. Hopefully the patch will give player’s the motive to not to use four Torbjorn’s when playing defense.
