A new patch for the Overwatch PTR dropped on October 23 and it contains an update for Mei, Baptiste, and Sigma along with bug fixes and someWorkshop updates.

The latest PTR update isn't massive, but it does contain a lot of updates for the Workshop along with changes that might be helpful to Mei mains.

Hero updates are also included for Sigma and Baptiste, along with a number of bug fixes for various heroes.

The PTR patch comes in the middle of the Halloween Terror event.

The hero update apply to Mei's Ice Wall, Sigma's Gravitic Flux and Baptiste's Immortality Field, which willall now more heavily prefer edges over placing as far away as possible.

This should make it easier to place the abilities in the most effective spot - especially when it comes to Ice Wall.

Ice Wall should be a bit easier to place accurately after the latest patch.

Bug fixes include a hilarious-sounding glitch thatcaused Anas legs to twitch when her Halloween TerrorPharaoh skin is equipped.

They also fixed a bug thatcaused Roadhog'sChain Hook tosometimes incorrectly connect with Symmetras Teleporter, Ashes Dynamite, and Junkrats Steel Trap and Concussion Mine.

Hog should have less problems hooking things he didn't mean to.
