Overwatch 2 patch finally fixes Symmetra glitch that nerfed hero so badly she was almost useless


So far, Overwatch 2 season three has been a little rocky, with countless hero and ability bugs surfacing and impacting matches left, right, and center.

Fortunately, the Blizzard developers have been releasing patches to fix issues. The latest patch arrived late on Tuesday, Feb. 21, focusing on several bugs that plagued the scene, including the permanent blank rankings glitch and Symmetras ability issues.

Symmetras ability bug has been wreaking havoc in matches, with environmental elements like sliding doors or a payload could destroying her turrets, leaving them inaccessible until she had died and respawned.

Her turrets usually have a 10-second cool down after use, but once they were destroyed by the nasty glitch, they wouldnt return.

Here are all the fixes in Overwatch 2s Feb. 21 patch.
