Junkrat’s deranged sense of humor persists past his death. If killed, he drops several live grenades.

Frag Launcher

HOTKEY: LEFT CLICK    or    Xbox Right Trigger

Damage: 130 direct hit;  12.5 – 80 AoE damage
Radius: .2 meter direct hit; 2 meters for splash

Projectile Speed: 25 m/s

Cannot headshot
Cannot self damage

Tips

  • Junk’s grenades explode on impact (if they hit a character) or on the third bounce
  • Utilize corners so that grenades use their first two bounces right away and explode on their next impact
  • Grenade + Concussion Mine = 250HP
    • Shoot a grenade and immediately follow up with conc mine for burst damage
  • If the enemy team doesn’t have a Zarya, always be shooting

Junkrat’s Frag Launcher lobs grenades a significant distance. They bounce to reach their destination, and blow up when they strike an enemy.

Concussion Mine

HOTKEY: LEFT SHIFT    or    Xbox Left Bumper
Trigger HOTKEY: right click    or    Xbox Left Trigger

Damage: 120
Radius: 3 meters
Ammo: 2 charges
Duration: Lasts until detonated
Projectile Speed: 17.5 m/s
Cooldown: 8 seconds

Cannot headshot
Cannot self damage
Can knockback and self-knockback

Tips

  • Throw mines above Reinhardt’s shield to boop him toward your team
  • Concussion Mine + Steel Trap = 200 HP damage
    • If you are in line of sight of an enemy and they lack a shield, don’t trap-mine. Instead you can trap-shoot and save your mines

After placing one of his homemade Concussion Mines, Junkrat can trigger it to damage enemies and send them flying… or propel himself through the air.

Steel Trap

HOTKEY: E    or    Xbox Right Bumper

Damage: 80
Health: 100 HP
Radius: 1 m radius
Crowd Control Duration: 1 sec stun; 3 sec root
Cooldown: 10 seconds

Cannot self damage

Tips

  • Never have a trap that either isn’t active or in a useless spot
  • If you throw a trap on someone that Ana sleeps, they will become trapped the instant they wake up
  • Use Junkrat’s trap spray to trick people into thinking you have a trap set somewhere
    • And don’t forget to sometimes put a spray ontop of an actual trap

Junkrat tosses out a giant, metal-toothed trap. Should an enemy wander too close to the trap, it clamps on, injuring and immobilizing them.

Rip-Tire (Ultimate)

HOTKEY: Q    or    Xbox Y
detonate HOTKEY: Left or right click    or    Xbox Left TriggerXbox Right Trigger

Damage: 60 – 600 AoE
Radius: 10 meters
Projectile Speed: 12 m/s (Tire) but Junkrat is immobilized
Cast Time: 1 second
Duration: 10 seconds

Cannot self damage
Cannot self-knockback

Tips

  • Climb walls with RIP tire
    • Don’t use the “Automatically climb walls” option. You need maximum control over your tire
  • High Noon and Tactical Visor do not lock onto Tire. If safe, use RIP Tire for a free kill
  • Bait out Zarya shields since tire lasts 10 seconds

Junkrat revs up a motorized tire bomb and sends it rolling across the battlefield, climbing over walls and obstacles. He can remotely detonate the RIP-Tire to deal serious damage to enemies caught in the blast, or just wait for it to explode on its own.
