Junkrat is losing it.
Overwatch and all of its millions of players are no strangers to bugs and glitches. And what do you know, we have anther one to talk about. This time, the bug is centered on the character of Junkrat as well as his ultimate power. As reported by Reddit user Xop, this happens mostly on the Public Test Region, where if you activate Junkrat’s rip-tire while standing next to or in front of an object, the game bugs out and cuts down his Ultimate to 99 per cent.
Here’s the bug in the user’s own words (sans typos): “So I was randomly messing around with Junkrat on the PTR, and noticed that if you activate his rip-tire while standing next to and facing an object, he will say his voice line, completely cancel his rip-tire animation, and reduce his ULT to 99%. The more interesting aspect is that for 2 seconds or so he will slide across any surface, and can even float across gaps before gravity takes over again.”
It’s not really a game-breaking bug, as the user points out himself, but it certainly is a noticeable one, and one that Blizzard will hopefully address quickly. Have you come across this glitch yet? Tell us in the comments section below.
