Junkrat?

Junkrat nerf?
Does he need one?
He seems a little too powerful.
Please don’t attack me junkrat mains.
Junkrat is annoying, not OP.
After all is a defense hero, that class is supposed to be anti-fun.

I’m coming for you, just wate
Not a junkrat main. Your problem is you need to play better
Junkrat is pretty easy to counter. Just don't get close. If u gonna go close you will get blown up and thats your fault. From a distance you have more than enough time to dodge his balls.
You'd think, with the frequency that console players complain about Junkrat, they'd be asking for console specific changes.

But I've seen like maybe 1 post about that this whole month, and he didn't even write it that well.
No. Junkrat doesn't need a nerf. Especially since almost all of his abilities are countered.

Trap - Can be destroyed
Mines - Can be destroyed
Tire - Can be destroyed

The only thing he has that can't be destroyed is his primary fire, and even those are easily dodged. The only thing that I could agree to getting nerfed is his ult charge rate.

They're also not supposed to be mobile.
Absolutely, his ult charges way too fast for how reliable it is

Bastion fits that description, except unless he's in the pirateship comp then he's being antifun to himself.

They have splash damage ,you know, and not a little splash damage, a whole lot of splash damage.
Slighty overtuned, yes.

You could make an argument, that'd help.

Says who? Why does 'defense' mean 'stationary'? Can you say the same for tanks? Or supports?

It's just a characteristic of defence heroes generally. If Junkrat is falling randomly from the sky and insta-gibbing you, he's no longer playing like a defence hero. Let me know of any exceptions you find.

Actually, if Junkrat is falling from the sky, its an easy target for Mccree, S76, Widow and Hanzo. Most of the time if hes mid way mine jumping, he is a susceptible target to be taken down by ranged heroes.
He's fine - he doesn't need a nerf - even a little

Suggesting he may betrays ignorance
Noobs have been crying about Demoman for over 10 years.. and now Junkrat.

Just stop standing there when red balls are hitting you in the face.
His Ult needs a nerf. It charges way too fast.
The rest of his kit is fine.

weird because he has the highest non niche win rate for dps which puts him in the firing line, more than likely his instant kills on 200 hp heroes really put him in the firing line and the ulti charge rate really really puts him in the firing line

pretty easy for a 300+ hour pick play pharah main to not notice him. maybe hit the ground once in a while
