Symmetra has always been an interesting hero in Overwatch, and soon she’ll be getting a huge overhaul. Symmetra will be moving from the ‘support’ category to the ‘defense’ one, as it will fit her abilities more fluidly. Check out the details here!
Timothy Ford, the lead software engineer for Overwatch recently conducted an interview with InvenGlobal giving details on how this change will happen.
“We are discussing the change right now, and although we can’t tell you the details of each change, we would still like to let you know it will be a fairly dramatic change. One thing we can tell you is that Symmetra will turn from a support hero to a defense hero after the remake. Our aim is to make the usage of Symmetra even more flexible from it.”
Many players have always been a little furious with Symmetra over the fact she can’t actually heal teammates, but instead only provided a small shield generator. Since the healing hasn’t been an aspect in her character development, it’s no surprise that she’ll be moved over to defense where she belongs.
We’ll keep you informed on any new Overwatch news as they develop.
