Patch History[edit | edit]

Patch 1.04

Ability Orbital Strike.png X - Orbital Strike

Ultimate Orbital Strike ultimate cost changed from 6 to 7 Ult points
  • Much like Raze’s Ultimate, Brimstone’s Ult is very impactful and useful in a wide variety of situations. We feel like it was impacting rounds a little too frequently, so decided to up the cost slightly.
  • Ability Stim Beacon.png C - Stim Beacon
    Quality of Life Stim Beacon no longer Buffs enemies and no longer shows its effect radius to enemies
  • The Stim beacon is meant to be a pretty situational ability but we felt that revealing Brimstone’s location and having the potential to accidentally buff enemies was making this ability significantly weaker than we’d like.
