Overwatch 2.34 Patch Notes for PS4, Xbox One and PC

Overwatch update 2.34 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC is now available for download. According to the official Overwatch 2.34 patch notes, the new update comes with changes for Doomfist, Mei, and Sombra. In addition, the new Overwatch version 2.34 also includes various bug fixes and game improvements.

According to the game developers, increasing Mei’s slow duration helps her freeze targets that are particularly elusive such as Genji or Lúcio. Lowering her alternate fire ammo cost allows her to more safely use it without costing her the ability to freeze enemies. Check out more details below.
