Overwatch 2 takes a closer look at Junker Queen’s suite of abilities


Now that the new tank character Junker Queen is confirmed as part of the Overwatch 2 roster, players are likely going to be curious about how she works and just what her abilities are. In that case, there’s a new dev blog to look over that does precisely that.

The post provides a closer look at Junker Queen’s tanking style, which primarily revolves around the passive healing she receives from hitting foes with DoT wounds. Naturally, applying wounds is a large part of her ability set, with melee weapons and an ultimate ability that focus on applying DoTs. She also wields a pump action shotgun for good measure, can throw a knife and recall it to tug enemies forward, and can issue a shout that buffs the health of herself and nearby allies.

Overwatch 2 isn’t expected until October 4th (at least the PvP portion), but those who want a taste of what sauce the Junker Queen’s stirring now have a detailed blog and a video.

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial gaming company owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. In 2021, the company was sued by California for fostering a work environment rife with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline. Multiple state and federal agencies are investigating the company as employees strike and call for Bobby Kotick’s resignation. As of 2022, the company is being acquired by no less than Microsoft.
