  • Junkrat and Roadhog changes are coming to the Overwatch PTR

Along with adding Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, certain heroes of Blizzard's Overwatch have received buffs in the latest PTR update. Roadhog's partner in crime, Junkrat, is also scheduled to get a few improvements, too.

"RIP-Tire's damage has always been very good, but it was often hard to steer the tire into position before it was destroyed". To perhaps buff Orisa's playtime, Blizzard has increased her projectile speed and barrier size while also changing the barrier's shape. In this change, though, Take a Breather can now be used while moving, and damage taken while healing has been reduced by 50%.

Last but not least, Widowmaker's Grappling hook cooldown has been reduced from 12 seconds to 8, and her Venom Mine has also seen some changes, as affected targets are now visible through walls (only to Widowmaker herself though). Junkrat and Orisa are receiving encouraging feedback from fans in the comments of the PTR patch notes and in the Overwatch Reddit. Offensively, the robot's Fusion Driver weapon sees an increase to its weapon speed by 20 percent.

To talk about Junkrat first, in the PTR changes he can now hold two mines, and his Riptire now moves at 30% faster speed, which is, according to the developer comments, in order to "add some much-needed flexibility and versatility to his kit, particularly when using the mines for mobility". RIP-Tire's damage has always been very good, but it was often hard to steer the tire into position before it was destroyed. "Increasing its speed will allow players to effectively detonate the tire more often and decrease the amount of time that Junkrat is vulnerable while controlling it".

"These changes help Roadhog be much more aggressive when looking for hook targets or blocking for his team". The combination of these effects significantly increases Roadhog's sustainability and survivability. Although she's not the most popular tank choice as of right now, it seems like she's in a good place, as there seems to be no immediate need to buff her. Venom Mine is meant to be an early warning system, uncovering enemies that are attempting to flank her or her team. Her barrier size has been increased to better protect her team, and the new shape makes the shield more effective when it's used on slopes or on top of objects (such as a payload).
