Bastion will become a more well-rounded character who no longer has to plant its feet in the ground.

When Overwatch first launched last May, and even earlier during beta periods, players took to forums in droves to complain about the character Bastion.

Its turret ability, self-healing, and range made it one of the most popular characters, capable of taking out nearly every opponent in just a second or two.

Since then, however, it has become significantly less useful due to other characters improvements, but an update could be in the works to make the usually friendly robot more viable again.

Writing on the official Overwatch forums, designer Geoff Goodman revealed that several changes for Bastion are most likely going to be included in the next public test realm update — this PC-only environment sees tweaks and changes tested before they re pushed live to the rest of players.

Perhaps the most notable change will come to Bastion s sentry mode, which transforms it into an immobile turret capable of decimating anyone who steps in front of its line of fire.
