Mei Is getting a huge DPS increase in Overwatch 2

Overwatch 2 is going to bring a ton of changes to just about every character in the game. Blizzard is using the release of the highly anticipated sequel as a chance to try out new things. Amongst these announced changes is that Mei will be receiving a big DPS buff in Overwatch 2.

Currently, Mei’s primary attack is an Endothermic Blast that freezes enemies over time. This freeze effect is being removed in an attempt to reduce the amount of crowd control in Overwatch 2. However, to compensate Blizzard is increasing the attack’s base damage from 55 to 90 damage per second. That is a huge buff that means it will only take 2.2 seconds to kill a regular 200 health hero.

The new Mei

Mei has always been a controversial hero due to her large quantity of crowd control. Crowd control refers to abilities that stun, freeze or block other players from moving or using abilities. To make Overwatch 2 less frustrating this aspect of Mei is being removed and replaced with superior damage output.

Despite this change Mei will still maintain some crowd control with her attack. Instead of freezing enemies the Endothermic Blaster will now only slow them down. It’s a nice middle ground where Mei doesn’t lose her identity without feeling unfair to play against.

Of course, Mei isn’t the only reworked character that Blizzard has shown off recently. Both Sombra and Bastion received reworks to better fit in with Overwatch 2’s vision. In the sequel Sombra’s hacks don’t last as long but she can deal extra damage to hacked targets. Also, she’ll be able to hack targets whilst invisible.

As for Bastion, our robot friend can now move around in turret form. This extra mobility makes him more self-sustaining. Furthermore, he has a new ultimate where he can fire off three artillery shells at any position on the map.
