  1. Personally I like them both. Maybe the new one is a bit too bland while the old one is a bit over the top but both look good imo

  2. Honestly I like how obnoxiously shiny the current golden weapons are. I like that they stand out, the new Bob looks like plastic.

  3. Looks like a bronze in game. Doesn’t have that trump tower golden toilet look like it does in ow1

  4. All the golden weapons look terrible now. its quite upsetting. I want my tacky gun back. I was proud.

    What does the new gold look like on Route 66? It’s reflective of it’s environment, so putting it in a white void vs an enviro with lots of reds and oranges isn’t really giving it a fair shot.

    It’s way too dull now, even in OW1 I could barely see it on most of Zenyatta’s skins, now we may as well have not bought it

  7. Wait this is how now? Come on I won’t waste competitive till they give that golden guns a more shine. this sucks 😔

  8. All the colors seem off and way too bright but blend in a really dull way. Also the player icons are dog shit. Teammates ultimate charge also feels like it’s lost in a bland wall of white text. I’d rather have tiny player icons on the screen with an ult meter next to them. That score card can go.

    My guess: this is likely all WIP (not final visuals) – they may be updating a bunch of the golden weapon maps and/or shader because a lot of them just have the gold material blanket applied (eg. a bunch of Bastion’s weapons) instead of correctly broken up with alternating materials like you can see on Bob there. On the blanket-applied ones, It’s even overriding the emmissive/glow maps with the gold color on a bunch of them so they’re just being plopped on top of everything for the moment.

    I would imagine the color we’re seeing is also just so it’s easier to tell at a glance if everything is being mapped correctly as the reflections/metallics in the full-gold look might hide errors.

    Remember folks, regardless of how “finished” a game might otherwise look in a Beta phase, game dev is still VERY much a work-in-progress right up to (and often even after) release.
