Game News Overwatch 2: Abilities, passive, ultimate… All about the Queen of Junkers
Recently revealed in a latest trailer for Overwatch 2, the Queen of Junkers presents herself as the new heroine of the game. Today, she not only reveals her story and origins but above all her weapons and abilities in great detail.
A new heroine for the next beta
Out of nowhere, an unexpected trailer for Overwatch 2 landed at the Xbox & Bethesda conference to present, among other things, a new heroine. Real name Odessa “Dez” Stone, but better known as Queen of the Junkers, she therefore joins the cast as a “tank” type character and will be playable during the game’s next closed beta phase.
Indeed, remember that a second beta phase of Overwatch 2 is scheduled for June 28 and whose registration is still possible on the official site. If the end date is not yet known, this new beta phase will therefore be an opportunity to test the capabilities of the Queen of Junkers, a preview of which is already available on paper.
With an ax and a shotgun
Defined as a tank character, the Queen of Junkers will have the heavy task of securing the surroundings and controlling her opponents in order to allow her team to advance.
Double armed, the Queen of Junkers will be able to swing her axslicing through all opponents in its path (“ Carnage “) or blow them up with a shotgun well loaded (” Scattergun “). Enough to dissuade opponents who dare to approach, from far or near.
” Jagged Blade », in its passive version, allows you to inflict damage over time for each ax hit that damages opponents. But by activating it for the first time, it allows you to throw a knife blade. Then, like Thor with his hammer, it is possible to draw the knife towards yourself by throwing the same ability a second time, and with it the opponent you stabbed by aiming well.
” Commanding Shout “, which we will tend to translate by Cry of War, resembles an area spell that increases the health of the Junker Queen by 200, as well as that of nearby allies by 100. Note that this ability also allows you to move faster up to an additional 30%.
Named ” rampage », his ultimate ability is a kind of forward chargedamaging opponents hit over time while preventing them from healing.
Finally, the Queen of the Junkers will be able Heal yourself for all damage inflicted by wounds over time thanks to his passive ability ” Adrenaline Rush “.
With such a range of abilities offering a good compromise between damage and healing, the Queen of Junkers has all the assets at her disposal to find herself in the front lines.
