This question already has an answer here:

I found a symbol on the left side of my screen in Overwatch. It looks like a lightning bolt with an arrow around it. Here is my sketch of it as I was unable to take a screenshot in time.lightningboltwitharrow

Can anyone tell me what this means?

This icon pulses when your client hasn't heard from the server for a period longer than your interpolation delay. If this icon is consistently pulsing, it may indicate a connection problem, and can cause erratic behavior in game.
