You’re not the only ones complaining about Torbjorn. This weekend, Blizzards Jeff Kaplan told players that his annoying turrets will soon be getting a significant damage nerf, but only on consoles.
“In an upcoming patch, we will reduce the damage done by Torbjörn’s turret by 30% on Xbox One and PS4. PC will remain unchanged,” wrote Kaplan, chiming in on a lengthy Reddit thread complaining about the character. “ETA – Mid to late July depending on 1st party certification times.”
The idea is that console players are generally less accurate than PC players. PC players have alot more precision with their mouse and keyboard controls. Since Torjorn’s turrets are fire with pinpoint accuracy, they out skill players during console matches. This allows Torbjorn’s turrets to dominate the match.
Sounds like a great idea by Blizzard. Hopefully Torbjorn getting nerfed will help mix things ups a little bit more.
