Mauga is the focus of a patch — again — as developers continue to balance the powerful tank hero.

There has been controversy surrounding the Samoan tank ever since he was released earlier this month. He was seen as a bit OP when he first dropped, with players concerned ahead of his competitive arrival due to the amount of damage he does while being quite aggressive.

He was nerfed a week in, with developers lowering his weapon damage and tweaking his ultimate. But apparently it wasn’t enough.

Overwatch 2 patch notes — December 19, 2023

Mauga is the main focus of the Overwatch 2 patch notes. Here are the changes to the powerful tank.

Mauga

  • Mauga is now available in Competitive Play for players who unlocked him
  • Base health decreased from 350 to 250
  • Base armor increased from 150 to 250

Incendiary and Volatile Chainguns

  • Number of shots with the Incendiary Chaingun to ignite enemies reverted from 15 to 10
  • Spread decreased from 1.1 to 1 when only one Chaingun is active

Berserker

  • Overhealth conversion rate increased from 50% to 60%

With Mauga now available in competitive matches, developers are hoping to make the tank less oppressive and keep the roster balanced.
