Hero Updates

Talents

  • Level 4
    • Boom Pow [W]
      • Cooldown reduction increased from 9 to 10 seconds.
  • Level 7
    • Sticky Wicket [E]
      • Silence duration reduced from 2.5 to 2 seconds.
  • Level 10
    • RIP-Tire [R1]
      • Maximum damage reduced from 775 to 720.
      • Minimum damage reduced from 475 to 445.

Developer Comment: Junkrat has been performing very well since his rework. His W build is still not up to par compared to its competitors, but we believe it's very close, so we're slightly nerfing Sticky Wicket while also buffing BOOM POW since it's his lynchpin talent to make the W build come online. We're also nerfing the damage of RIP-Tire, as it is outperforming compared to Rocket Ride, as well as influencing team fights a little much, especially when upgraded at Level 20. We like the powerful, game-breaking feeling that Extra Oomph provides at Level 20 (the dream is that all talents at this stage of the game can feel just as epic), so we're going to hold off on nerfing it until we see how this change pans out.

Hero Updates

Stats

  • Basic Attack damage increased from 110 to 116

Abilities

  • Concussion Mine (W)
    • Now shows its area of effect to enemies upon being launched
    • Range increased from 10 to 10.5​

Developer Comment: While we like the awesome plays that Junkrat can make by throwing enemies into his team with Concussion Mine, the ability is fairly hard to see coming for opponents for how powerful it is. To help this, we are showing enemies its area of effect the moment that Junkrat throws the mine so that they have a better chance to reposition themselves before being blown up. To compensate Junkrat, we are slightly increasing its range and giving him more Basic Attack damage, which should help both his waveclear and teamfight capabilities.
