Base damage decreases from 15 to 12 (damage multiplier doesn't change)

So what are the exact old and new numbers after this update ?

I assume that the "Headshot damage multiplier increase from x2 to x2.5" will cancel the above, when performing a headshot?

    I'm pretty sure this means bodyshots will max at 120 from 150

The changes reduce Widowmaker's bodyshot damage, while not changing her headshots.

Fully charged sniper shots deal 10x base damage. Her body shots now deal a maximum of 120 damage (previously 150). This means that she will no longer kill Zenyatta and Tracer from full health in a single body shot.

The 2.5 headshot multiplier means her headshots will deal a maximum of 300 damage- the same amount as they did before.

  • I assume that made it so some of the heros she could previously kill in one body shot she now can't. Which ones? Zenyatta, I think?
