Overwatch obviously has an extremely pretty exterior in terms of maps and character, but there are all kinds of numbers furiously chugging away in the game's backgound. Every Hero in the game has their own set of critical stats powering their assortment of abilities: Ammo clip sizes, Fire Rates, Cooldowns, Damage, Range - you name it, they all play a crucial part in the grand balancing act of the game.

Over time it's likely that Blizzard will do a little light tinkering with some of these values - much as they have done already during Overwatch's closed and open beta phases - particularly if certain Heroes come to dominate the overall roster of characters. Across all of its games, Blizzard has always demonstrated a desire to have a thriving metagame driving each title forwards, and we expect Overwatch to be no different.

So there'll likely to be changes to these figures in the future - with McCree and Widowmaker being the most recent recipients - but for now, these are the numbers currently powering each Hero as best we understand them. We'll be revisiting this article regularly in the months following launch, and will make any changes that are necessary to ensure this data actually reflects what's actually happening in the live game.

Editor's note - Update #2: We've made a few changes to our stats round-up to reflect the changes made to both Widowmaker and McCree in the last balancing patch. We're still waiting on news of how exactly D.Va will be buffed, but we'll update this article once more when we know what's what.
