Geoff commented on the forum:

We do have one shield bash change we are playtesting right now, which is likely to hit the next PTR: Shield Bash no longer going through barriers.

This means it is a lot more tricky to land a clutch stun on an enemy Reinhardt, for example, but you can still use the ability to close distance and land melee hits to trigger Inspire.

Yes, cause we all know if she needed anything just like Doomfist for characters considered bad by the top players is ANOTHER nerf to make her f***ing more useless and used less.

I think they are going to end up with an identity crisis soon. If she cant shield bash through barriers, then she shouldn't be front line, which is kind of where her healing belongs. They want her to be a peel healer I think, but she wastes so much of her healing potential when she is away from the front line.

Also, this change might make Winston a bit stronger, though I doubt in a counter perspective.

I never did think it made any sense why Rein would get stunned just from Brig bashing his shield. Who would’ve guessed Brigitte would turn into the most hated character
