I play Mcree and Widow quite a bit and believe these changes are for the better, especially mcree. Widow will be even worse in the hands of scrubs who can't aim, but a little more balanced in the hands of someone a bit more experienced. We'll see if this change hits mcree enough and if not wouldn't be unhappy or surprised to see a further nerf.

This part of the nerf is awful, takes control away from the player... the rest is fine though.

Headshot damage remains at 300.

Honestly think the widow change is spot on happy they didn't alter the charge rate that shit woulda made me pull out my hair. Can no longer one hit anybody with a fully charged body shot which is what it should have been from the start.

Question is why no Dva buff ?
