Overwatch 2 Hanzo Bow Recoil Bug Nerfs Character in Season 2

A disorientation Overwatch 2 Hanzo Bow Recoil Bug made Archer very difficult to play after Season 2 update. Now, after Hanzo takes a charged arrow shot, his elbow and hand suddenly move up, covering the center target reticle for a short time. Well, there’s a chance this nerf was intentional (in which case it would be a feature), but the reaction to the change has been so negative that many fans are assuming it’s a bug. This additional recoil is also not mentioned in the Season 2 patch notes.

A user on Overwatch’s official Reddit posted a quick 8-second video of the issue (see above). The left shows the sudden recoil of the Hanzo Bow due to the Season 2 patch, compared to before on the right. Players responding in the comments hope this is just a bug, but even if it isn’t, the movement is quite distracting as it gets in the way of the crosshair.

Additionally, numerous users (like here and here) have taken to the official Overwatch 2 forums to report the issue. One player reports that this jerky animation mainly occurs after charging a Sonic Arrow, although it can also happen with Storm Arrows. The overwhelming response could lead to Blizzard considering temporarily removing Hanzo from the game or rolling out a hotfix to address the issue.
