    Junkrat - Ranged Assassin - Overwatch Hero



    Background

    The attack on the Australian omnium's fusion core forever altered the landscape of the Outback. After the detonation, the area was transformed into a harsh, irradiated wasteland, littered with debris and the twisted fragments of the ruined facility, and unlivable to most.

    But there were some who survived. Calling themselves the Junkers, they scavenged the husk of the omnium and formed a lawless, cutthroat society in its shadow. Junkrat was one of them, eking out a living reclaiming metal and components from the ruins. Like many others, he was affected by the lingering radiation. This touch of madness made him ideal for handling dangerous explosives, a love which he turned into an obsession.

    Specialist doesn't actually mean anything. He could have the exact same kit and be either one of them. We'll have to wait and see, but I don't really see them messing him up.

    Specialist doesn't mean "Primary PvE focused" it's a loose term to describe unconventional Heroes. Like, can Sgt. Hammer be considered an Assassin? Yes? Well she does her Assassin job... in a little different fashion than Valla. Murky also can be considered an Assassin, albeit in a roundabout way.

    Assassin and Specialist intersect each other a lot so it doesn't matter (usually) what a Hero is labeled as. Junkrat can be an Assassin, and Specialist in the same kit.

    who the fuk cares

    Looks like he'll be bringing the Halloween content with him, which is pretty sweet, since Halloween has the best skins and Junkrat was the OW hero I most looked forward to!

    I wonder how his AA will work, might be similar to Urgot's, a very short CD skillshot (his would probbaly be in an area) instead of a normal AA, that's how Urgot used to work atleast.

    Most specialists actually DO excel at sieging, though. It may not be the ONLY thing they do, but it is something they are very, very, good at. Sure, Hammer can easily put out assassin levels of damage if you ignore her in a teamfight...but she's also ridiculously good at taking down structures if ignored. Same with Zagara, Sylvanas, Nazeebo, Probius, Murky, Xul... Then of course you got the specialists that are pretty much solely focused on sieging, like Azmodan and Gazlowe. And if any of those are pushing a lane during an objective, you basically have to send someone to deal with them or risk losing towers and forts...whereas if you got an assassin like Tychus, Alarak, Valeera, Chromie, Tracer, the classic Jim Laynor etc, doing that, you ignore their push, take the objective 5-4 then go after the lone split person when when you've won the battle.

    Pretty much the only specialist that doesn't excel at sieging is Medivh, and he only got called that cause they didn't want him classified as a support and risking getting QM teams with him on one side and Morales or Malf on the other.

    Plenty of Assassin's can also be considered siege Specialists. Like Valla, Illidan. And with Illidan he's not really ignoring the team fight when he can Hunt in.

    Illidan(and Valla) will still have trouble vs keeps as their attack slow messes up his CD reduction and sustain. Azmodan can spawn minions then laser it from out of range. Zagara can continually drop roaches and hydralisks on it to drain ammo as well as fire banelings from out of range. Hammer flat outranges them completely. Xul creates his own minions simply by killing theirs, as well as being able to hit a ton of stuff at once with Cursed Strikes. Really not comparable.

    Some Assassins, and, hell, even some warriors can also be pretty good at taking down buildings when ignored. Zul'jin, for instance, can absolutely demolish a building if left unchecked, faster then pretty much every hero except for Azmodan. Artanis/Muradin, when speced, can also deliver a significant amount of damage to buildings if left unchecked.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    This should never happen unless you are just bad.

    Illidan is sieging beast thanks to his pretty fast wave clear, ability to drain ammo with Evasion and very good sustain and efficiency.

    On top of that he is a pseudo-global Hero.

    Small nitpick but while it doesn't matter for game design, it does matter for quests. I could really use a few extra Specialists to play when I get the related quest, while I'm drowning in Assassins.
    GC: Good news, everyone! We lowered the cooldown of Shield Wall to 5 sec and balanced assuming you hit it every 5 sec.

    Tanks: Um.... Thanks? Could you maybe just make it a passive at that point?

    GC: But hitting buttons is fun!
