The Overwatch community are no strangers to bugged characters, but one in particular stands out on a regular basis. One member of Battle.net has taken to the official forums to go into detail of Genji and his many bugs within the game.
The post is indeed a lengthy one, as user mysticdragon collects a series of videos as evidence of the many bugs that hinder the character. The post lists nine bugs in total, which are based on the Dragon Blade Ghost swing, Deflect hit-box representation, Deflect’s incorrect registration, bugs for both Swift Strike and Wall Climbing, Last moment deflections, cancelled deflections due to ending of ultimate animation and double dragon blade activation. If you’d like to check out the videos for each, click here to go to the discussion.
As you’ll see below the original post, there is an entire list of discussions that outline issues with Genji. Whilst some may go as far as suggesting deleting the entire character, (which is a ludicrous idea, of course) many do seem to agree that Genji really needs to be focused on by Blizzard.
As we’ve reported many times recently, Roadhog has come under criticism and is in dire need of fixing, which Blizzard have been working on. Cries for fixes to the likes of Winston, Bastion and others also ring out, but Genji may well be the one that needs to the most attention. Its not just about unfair abilities, but genuine bugs that need to be fixed for the hero. Time will tell if Genji will be the next to go under the microscope, we will be sure to bring you more news if Blizzard choose to do so.
