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 – Unionhawk Jun 14 '16 at 16:06

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? – DCShannon Jun 14 '16 at 17:07
