Overwatch NINTENDO

Overwatch PTR server just received its patch 1.47. The latest update adds a whole lot of stuff in the multiplayer shooter, but most importantly, a new hero called Echo has been introduced. However, the game is also now suffering from some bugs that were reported after the new update.

Since the new patch, sticky bombs visually gets stuck on Moira even when she fades away. Baptise's Immortality field disc is larger than usual in his Highlights intro. Echo’s sound effects and UI bugs were also encountered by many fans. Echo can get damaged by Duplicated Wrecking Ball Minefield even after Duplicate effect wears off. Echo’s Heroic Emote can have some pieces of her halo missing as well.

Currently, the update is only live on the PTR server, so there is a good chance that most of these bugs will be fixed when the update goes live on the main build. For a full list of all the known bugs and issues, check out the list below from Blizzard.
