Junkrat is an explosives and demolitions expert with a variety of useful abilities. Placing a trap and mine in the same spot can create an effective stun and kill point which can be monitored while using the grenade launcher to damage other enemies. As soon as a foe springs the trap, a quick detonation of the mine can finish them off.

Junkrat Abilities

Total Mayhem​
Junkrat's deranged sense of humor persists past his death. If he is killed, he drops several live grenades which will kill anyone nearby.

Frag Launcher
This ability to launch grenades that will bounce off walls to reach their destination, and blow up when they strike the opponent. Normally it can only bounce up to 3 and then it will explode so you better use them against Bastion while they are in Sentry Mode.

Concussion Mine
Use the homemade Concussion Mines that can trigger to damage enemies and send them flying or propel himself through the air for a higher jump.

Steel Trap
With this ability, you can toss out a giant, metal-toothed trap. Should an enemy wander too close to the trap, it clamps on, injuring and immobilizing them. It works great with the Concussion Mine as they can trigger them while the Steel Trap is activated.

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.
