The general bug fixes address the audio system of the game, particularly for several gamers whose audios were cut off during matches. Also, the Horizon Lunar Colony menu screen’s vacuum of space sound effects was fixed.

The hero bug fixes dealt with Pharah's voice line. The update also fixed Orisa's ultimate that will charge while the character’s Supercharger is deployed. However, the “Overwatch” 2.15 update hasn't been able to address the Earthshatter bug that makes gamers fail to hit targets while playing as Reinhardt. But, game director Jeff Kaplan stated that a fix for the bug will be available soon.

Meanwhile, Blizzard Entertainment is also working on the game’s punishment system. Several players in multiplayer conquests have encountered co-players who are disrespectful towards other gamers. The updated punishment system was revealed in the Blizzard forums.
