As mentioned above, this patch will introduce some Chamber buffs and slight gameplay changes, so let's take a look at that.

Chamber receives buffs and new Esports Store launches

Chamber will receive two massive buffs in Patch 8.03, that can potentially bring him back to his former glory.

The Headhunter price will decrease from 150 to 100 credits, while the Tour De Force firing rate will increase from 0.7 seconds to 0.9 seconds. These changes will help Chamber easily lock down bombsites by himself on the defensive side, and make his ultimate even stronger.
