Overwatch’s Junkertown Map Takes Us To Junkrat And Roadhog’s Roots




A new Overwatch Escort map has been announced, and it might provide more insights into two of its characters. People are going to be heading to Australia’s Junkertown. This old omnium is home to the Queen and her Junkers, a group of scavengers. It’s also where Junkrat and Roadhog used to live. Well, until the Queen kicked them out.


Blizzard has released two videos to prepare people for Junkertown. One offers a look at the map with its Queen providing narration. The second is a bit more whimsical and stars Junkrat and Roadhog. In that trailer, the two wonder what got them evicted from their home and trying to find a way back in. (Stealing the Queen’s cash, blowing up one of her homes, and a bar beatdown are suggested as possible causes for their removal.)
