Blizzard reveals Junker Queen’s capabilities ahead of Overwatch 2 Beta
In just seven days, the Overwatch 2 beta will arrive. Along with it, Junker Queen, the game’s new frontline hero, is also arriving. Although little was known about Junker Queen, Blizzard finally revealed the details – sparking excitement among Overwatch fans.
The new beta will bring down enemies close up in the shotgun-wielding hero. It is equipped with a powerful scattergun, a Jagged blade combo that can be used in many different ways and a powerful scattergun. Junker queen’s passive ability Adrenaline Rush will allow her to heal enemies from the wounds she inflicts on them.
Jagged Blade and Scattergun
Junker Queens have many exciting new abilities, including the ability to throw an axe at enemies to inflict damage from a distance. This versatile hero isn’t just about close-ups and personal. You can stop the enemy from attacking you by clicking a button.
The Jagged blade, as we have already mentioned, will not only deal damage to enemies over time but also heal the Junker queen.
Commanding shout ability
Junker Queen will also have a Commanding shout ability that will increase her health and the health of her teammates. This ability will give Junker Queen a 30% speed boost and additional health benefits.
Junker Queen’s Ultimate is now called ‘Rampage’. It will allow the new hero to charge forward and damage all enemies in the area. Rampage Ultimate does a lot of damage and will prevent enemy players from healing.
Junker Queen was officially introduced via an Overwatch Cinematic trailer. This trailer was shown at an Overwatch 2 Event. This Mad Max-inspired character will be a hit with fans and will be available starting June 28th, once Overwatch 2 Beta launches.
The second Overwatch 2 Beta will include cross-platform functionality, unlike the first. The new game will give players a taste of the possibilities, with reworked favourite characters such as Orisa and Doomfist. There will be several new maps, as well as new heroes such as Junker Queen, Sojourn and another yet-to-be-named hero.
