The most recent Overwatch 2 beta patch reveals significant changes to Mercy, Baptiste, and Sojourn ...

The Overwatch 2 beta will now be available, bringing Mercy, Baptiste, and Sojourn together.

Mercys Super Jump is now a part of the game with this update, giving players the ability to cancel Guardian Angel by using the crouch key and launch her high into the air. It has been a technique used by Mercy players for a while, but it is now available.

This is an initial implementation of a new technology designed to allow Mercy players more options in their use of Guardian Angel. Some Mercy players were already able to do similar boosts by using a somewhat complicated technique known as Super jump. While the original technique is still there and remains intact.

Baptistes'' Regenerative Burst ability has been changed for 50 instant and then 50 over time, instead of 100 over time. The instant-heal portion will be doubled on targets that are 50 percent health or lower.

The primary fire rate for Sojourns Railgun has been increased from 13 to 15 shots per second, and the maximum ammo has been increased from 40 to 45.

Sojourn has been a little weak since her first appearance on the roster. Although this change does not seem significant, she increases her alternate fire charge rate and ultimate gain, as well as purely increasing her primary fires raw DPS. Whenever a weapons rate of fire changes, it also alters how quickly the weapon will drain its magazine and run out of ammo. Were increasing her ammo count to compensate for this.
