The Overwatch 2 May 24 patch has dropped, and both Roadhog and Sigma have received nerfs. Here is everything you need to know.

Overwatch 2 has already dropped the midseason patch, but the devs have also made some changes to Roadhog’s survivability in a small patch released on May 24.

Here are all the patch notes for May 24, including the Roadhog changes and nerfs to Sigma’s Ultimate.

OW2 May 24 update brings Roadhog & Sigma changes

Roadhog’s survivability has been a prominent issue in Overwatch 2, and the devs have made changes to his Take a Breather and Whole Hog abilities to help balance him out.

Sigma in Overwatch 2
Sigma’s ult got a significant buff in the midseason patch, but that’s been reverted.

Roadhog‘s changes largely aim to make adjustments to his survivability, as he was difficult to play against before these nerfs.

Sigma, on the other hand, just gets a small change that reverts his Gravitic Flux back to where it used to be before the last major OW2 patch.
