Bugs and glitches are common events in every video games. Though most of them are minor, they could still affect one player's overall performance. Blizzard Entertainment's popular first-person shooter game Overwatch is not new to this kind of scenario as tons of bugs and glitches were already seen before. Recently, it seems like there's another bug that was found in the game. It is directly pointed to the cryofreezing character Mei, causing her to become almost unplayable.
According to Game Rant, the said bug raised its ugly head following the patch, which features the brand new Uprising event along with the tons of new game additions. Based on the evidence shown by Overwatch players, it appears that the bug lowers the rate at which Mei's primary fire slows down the opposing players.
Furthermore, the freezing blast that turns opposing players to blocks of ice is no longer fairly quick. That means the glitch caused Mei to take more time to freeze her enemies. As a result, agile characters such as Lucio could easily escape from being frozen solid.
Included on this new glitch is the effect on Mei's ultimate ability called Blizzard. Blizzard aims to freeze her enemies across a large radius. However, the appearance of the bug makes the ability unable to freeze the enemies. It is noted that the glitch allows opponents to waltz right through it unharmed and unfrozen.
Apparently, this is not the first case discovered after the arrival of the Uprising patch. The report said that multiple game modes and features went down as soon as the update went live. There are also technical issues about the game servers as well, which is disappointing for any online multiplayer game. Thankfully, Blizzard has quickly responded to these issues.
As for the latest glitch on Mei, game's principal designer Geoff Goodman recently confirmed the existence of the glitch and the team already identified the nature of the bug. Goodman said that they will be launching a fix for the glitch as soon as possible.
