Blizzard has revealed a major balance change for one of the game’s Roadhog. Designer Geoff Goodman has revealed what the team has in store for the character.
The update will change how Roadhow’s hook operates. It will make it so that the hooked enemy will arrive in the position directly in front of Roadhoag, rather than being dragged in a straight line towards him.
This is to counteract players who were exploiting the hook by pulling someone in, spinning 180 and dumping them off a cliff. This will hopefully make the hook feel more consistent for both Roadhog and his enemies.
