Overwatch 2 DPS Heroes receives a speed boost on launch

Ahead of the launch of Overwatch 2 next month, Blizzard has released a preview of the changes players can expect. One of the big changes from previous betas is a new passive ability for each hero class, with DPS role-playing characters getting a speed boost.

In betas, DPS heroes have retained 30% of their ultimate power when replaced with another character, and this buff will also apply to Tank and Support heroes. To give DPS characters a more clearly defined role, Blizzard explained in a blog post that these heroes will benefit from passive movement and increased reload speed after taking out an opponent.
