Zenyattas hitbox is unnatural and too big...?

Competitive Discussion
Highly Rated
Oey,
does anyone aside from me think that Zens hitbox needs a overwork especially since he is still in kinda a rally bad spot and rarely played?

His hitbox just extends too far outside of his body and further than any other hero I have seen.
I mean why extend it outside his body this much? His body is already a kinda big round shape with smooth movemnt animations. Which is perfect to aim at. His body (not even hitbox) is even bigger than Zaryas with hitbox.
Same with his heads hitbox which gets hit from further away than an extra head to the sides...
With hanzo you can shoot his arm and you land a headshot. No joke I literally saw arrows stuck in his elbow counting as headshot wtf.
I agree, he is plenty powerful enough, he just needs a hitbox fix.

LOL - I feel your pain.

Srsly, zen is fine where he is with dmg/debuf/healing etc. Its just his hitbox is crazy big.

I seldom play Zenyatta - but I agree with you. Doesn't seem fair to have an already easy target with an enlarged hitbox larger than Zarya.
Zens base abilities as well as damage and everything is fine just his hitbox is insane.
Which makes it so hard to play him and his survivability against everything is basically 0 since everything just hits him.
That moment you realize that lucio has a speed boost and an aoe heal, boop and a hitbox the size of a mouse. While a low healing zen is a giant billboard.. feels bad man..

sounds like a classic example of blizzard balancing
Yes it would be nice to have it a bit smaller, nothing huge, just not this ridiculously big
Yes please, then maybe i'll stop getting angry teammates wanting a lucio or mercy instead of Zen. Zen is the new Hanzo in terms of off meta picks.
Most of the time when Roadhog hooks someone and I pass by in the back as Zen, it always lands on me

That vid describes it perfectly. Just everything hits you.
As a Zen main I feel this and agree hit box is too big. Tired of Roadhog hooking me while not even aiming at me :(
Here's another one with Rein. ;-;

jeff pls halp ;-;
I could not agree more. As a Zen player, random things kill me when they were not even close to me. Much like the twitch clips. It needs a slight reduction, his kit is fine...but that hit box needs some work.
I agree!!!

As a hanzo main!!!

Zen n Zarya stand together.
I am aiming at zarya's head, not Zen.

Why ZEN always die not Zarya???

Reinhardt's firestrike hitbox is actually pretty fat its self, contributing to the problem.
Smaller hit box and slight movement speed increase and he'll be in a good spot.
