Dota 2 patch 7.32d notes: New update finally nerfs Sniper

The Dota 2 patch 7.32d notes have arrived, with the MOBA's latest update finally nerfing the somewhat OP Sniper, as well as buffing the Queen of Pain

Dota 2 patch 7.32d notes: New update finally nerfs Sniper: A gnome-like character wearing green goggles with pointed ears and a white bears stands holding a blunderbuss gun

The Dota 2 patch 7.32d notes have arrived, and they’re accompanied by a slew of changes to the MOBA‘s roster of heroes and villains. The most prominent of these are the changes to sharpshooting first blood king, Sniper, who is finally taking a much-needed bonk from the nerf hammer.

Sniper isn’t the only one to go under the knife however. There’s a whole slew of different character changes, with significant buffs to Queen of Pain and Medusa.

Sniper’s reign of terror ends in Dota

Alas, oh Sniper mains, your dominance may be at an end. The mana cost for Shrapnel has increased from 50 to 75, meaning you can’t fire them out as easily as before, and its radius has also decreased to 400 from 450.

Shrapnel is a powerful tool during the early laning phase, as it’s easily paired with the likes of Headshot and Take Aim. Hopefully these nerfs will knock the pesky little sharpshooter down a few pegs, but we’ll have to wait and see.
