The accidental nerf was quickly noted by the developers and they are working on a fix.
“Aiming to get Wattson fence fixes out in a patch next week. That one sucks, we know” said Ryan K. Rigney on Twitter, Director of Communications at Respawn Entertainment.
So far it is unknown when exactly the patch will go live. Wattson changes were clearly pushed back, as Respawn focused on nerfing the Bocek Bow and Spitfire in the game's latest update, which went out yesterday.

The latest season of Apex Legends has been a huge success for the game with record numbers of players playing, helped in no small part by its recent arrival on Steam.
EA have big plans for the title with a new Apex Legends: Mobile game expected later this year.
