JunkRat Overwatch Guide




Movement:
JunkRat has a relatively low walk speed, his movement is vastly improved by his concussion mines however. JunkRat should always utilize these Concussion mines in order to get to objectives faster. Simply place a concussion mine and then stand at the edge of the side you want to travel towards e.g. if you want to travel forwards stand slightly infront of the concussion mine and then blow it up, and you will fly forward.

Abilities:
JunkRat's concussion mine can be used for mobility but it can also be used for knocking back enemies. When in tight spaces it is very useful to throw a concussion mine, the player will hurl backwards delaying their attacks for a few seconds, giving you time to spam them with your main attack. Your main attack your grenades are very very powerful when used correctly, JunkRat is very versatile and can be used as a sniper firing from a distance, firing over walls and Run n' Gun. JunkRat works amazingly in tight small rooms, due to his grenades exploding everywhere. When fired over a wall you have a high chance of hitting random enemies and killing them, possibly even getting multi-kills so It is always useful to remain hidden and fire at random. However do not rely on firing at random, and switch your play-style between Sniping, Firing at Random and Run N' Game throughout each match. Junkrat also has a spike trap / bear trap this trap can be place on the ground and when an enemy walks on the trap they will be temporarily incapacitated and unable to move so you will have time to spam them with grenades. JunkRats ultimate is a giant tire that explodes upon impact it lasts 10 secs and can be destroyed by enemies very easily, so always remember to jump with the tire, and dodge enemy fire. JunkRats ultimate however when correctly used can do 200+ damage to the enemies and easily deliver multiple kills. It is very very powerful, but somewhat hard to use. Concussion Mine and Spike trap can both be used similar to how a Claymore is used in Call of Duty via "Strategic Camping" this isn't sitting in a room waiting for enemies but rather, getting noticed by an enemy and then leading them towards that room where the traps are. I do not advise camping with JunkRat or any class as it is useless in Overwatch.

Weaknesses:
Due to JunkRats Grenade launcher, he is unable to hit Pharah when she is flying unless you have very good accuracy however, when Pharah is on the ground she is alot easier to hit.
