Character Nerfs and Buffs


Wraith

  • a hitbox adjustment to help balance the character even further.

Respawn:

“The fact remains that her win rate continues to be at the very top as it has since day one,” Respawn wrote. “With Season 7 hitbox adjustments to Pathfinder, we were able to control his power without nerfing his kit. We hope to do the same with Wraith.”

  • Amped Cover’s health from 1 health point to 45.

  • 15s cooldown timer will now start when the Gravity Lift disappears


Octane

  • Hitting the jump pad from a standing position will launch players along a high arc (the speed and trajectory of the old super-jump).

  • From a crouched position, players will launch along a low arc, meaning they’ll fly lower but farther in the horizontal direction.

  • “All gas now dissipates as soon as Caustic’s team is eliminated.”

  • Sonar abilities no longer stop Caustic’s highlight vision.
