It’s been a few weeks since Monitor 2 has been officially released, and players are still encountering bugs, including a bug where players can see Snow Fox Lucio through walls. This is the latest in a growing list of issues involving the game’s heroes, the latest being Sombra being invulnerable to enemy fire.
Since its launch earlier this month, gamers have had mixed feelings about Overwatch 2. Early reviewers of the game noted that it was just as fun as the first. Surveillance and players enjoyed the new characters, but they felt some of what made the game special before was missing. Additionally, some said they weren’t big fans of the Seasonal Battle Pass. And to make matters worse, players encountered several game-breaking bugs and other issues.
The Snow Fox Lucio bug was reported by Reddit user FidgetSpinnetMan, who noticed he could see the enemy Lucio through the wall. The photo in the post showed white smoke billowing against the wall. The Snow Fox skin gives Lucio an icy visual, including a fog effect coming out of his weapon. Other players confirmed in the comments that they encountered this bug firsthand.
Snow Fox Lucio was introduced in Surveillance in 2018 as part of the Winter Wonderland event. Although the skin is not purchasable in Monitor 2, players still use it because it could be carried over from the first game if it had been unlocked first. Nonetheless, the Redditor warned others not to use the skin in the meantime to avoid revealing their positions. As of this writing, Activision Blizzard has not resolved or fixed said bug.
Anyone who plays Lucio in Surveillance knows his team can benefit from his ability to run up walls, which helps him flank his opponents. This makes the Snow Fox bug naturally frustrating when trying to hide while healing teammates or before pushing the enemy team. If not resolved quickly, it could make it even worse Monitor 2ongoing issue of players not choosing support roles in their games. With the new 5v5 format, it’s important to have a solid support hero in Monitor 2.
Ironically, this isn’t the first time a Winter Wonderland skin has also given players an unfair advantage. Last year, it was pointed out that the tip of Ice Wraith Genji’s sword was perfectly aligned with the reticle, which could help with aiming. It’s still unclear if Activision Blizzard will completely remove the Snow Fox Lucio skin, but hopefully they’ll offer a fix for the Brazilian hero, along with his other in-game issues, to restore balance. Monitor 2.
Monitor 2 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
