Overwatch 2.45 Update Patch Notes

Share

Overwatch’s next big update 2.45 is now live! This new patch brings tons of changes and new features so let’s dive in!

New features:

Looking For Group (LFG)

The Looking For Group option is the biggest elephant in this room, this new feature allows players to find and create groups with the idea of choosing your teams roles.  This is a spectacular feature and I think it’s wonderful! I’ve been able to find really nice people so far and we actually use team work together, crazy right?

Endorsements:

The next feature is the Endorsement system, which allows you to endorse other players for, in summary, good behavior. You can endorse players for 3 things: Shotcalling, being a Good Teammate, or displaying good sportsmanship. Players who have a high endorsement ranking will randomly receive awards from Blizzard for being a well mannered player.

Character changes:
