It is always an exciting time when Blizzard adds a new character to Overwatch. With each new character brings the chance of a whole new meta change, as well as certain characters becoming stronger while others become less viable. With the release of Baptiste, this will certainly be no different. Baptiste was revealed just a few weeks ago and has been available on Overwatch’s PTR since his reveal. While there are many challenges in bringing Baptiste into the current meta, there is no doubt he will be a game changer. Baptiste will exit PTR officially on March 19th and join the fight on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
