Public Test Region patch for Overwatch nerfs Ana, and even Orisa, the newest character that was just announced last week – before even going live.

Orisa’s Fusion Driver has had its magazine size reduced from 200 to 150 while her ultimate, Supercharger, has had the cost increased by 15%. Clearly, Blizzard felt she was just a tad bit too powerful.

At the same time, Ana is finally getting the nerf bat to her face. Ana’s Biotic Rifle damage has been reduced to 60 which was previously 80. Biotic Grenade has had its damage and healing cut in half, with damage dropping from 60 to 30 and healing to 50 which was previously 100.

Here are the overall changes that included within the PTR update.
