“It’s a perfect day for some mayhem.”
Junkrat is an explosives-obsessed freak who lives to cause chaos and destruction.
The attack on the Australian omnium’s fusion core forever altered the landscape of the Outback. After the detonation, the area was transformed into a harsh, irradiated wasteland, littered with debris and the twisted fragments of the ruined facility, and unlivable to most.
But there some who survived. Calling themselves the Junkers, they scavenged the husk of the omnium and formed a lawless, cutthroat society in its shadow. Junkrat was one of them, eking out a living reclaiming metal and components from the ruins. Like many others, he was affected by the lingering radiation. This touch of madness made him ideal for handling dangerous explosives, a love which he turned into an obsession.
He came to notoriety when he discovered an extremely valuable secret in the bones of the omnium. Though few knew the nature of what he found, he was nonetheless pursued by bounty hunters, gangs, and opportunists wherever he went, until he made a deal with the Junker enforcer Roadhog, who grudgingly agreed to be his personal bodyguard in exchange for a fifty-fifty share of the spoils.
Now, with Roadhog in tow, Junkrat has left the Outback, and embarked upon an international crime spree leaving nothing but havoc and bedlam in his wake.
Junkrats love for explosive shows in his Frag Launcher. These mini bouncy balls of death are launched a good distance and continue bouncing tell they find their mark. Then to Junkrats joy they explode!
Never finished tinkering with his projects Junkrats has found some interesting uses for his Concussion mine. He can toss one down and remotely detonate them with a chuckle sending enemies flying sky high. Not happy just watching the explosion Junkrat can actually ride the explosion to new heights of insanity.
The best laid schemes always have traps to deter pursuit. One of Junkrats favorites is the steel trap. This vice will clamp on with its toothy grin, causing excruciating pain and immobilizing any hopeless mark.
Who doesn’t want to go out with a bang? Well Junkrat means this literally. If he falls he isn’t going to be taken alive. With his own personal take on the dead man switch, multiple grenades are released if he ever loses consciousness.
The RIP-Tire is a genius invention. It is a remote controlled motorized explosive tire. This is the ultimate in al-terrain explosives. It will climb right over barriers. This devious device is know to appear at the most inopportune times. If only Junkrat could only use his genius for good… Nope can’t think of any use that is not maniacal for an explosive tire.
