A new Junkrat bug has been recently discovered in the new #Deathmatch Game Mode of "#Overwatch." While the reception about the new game mode on PTR is mostly positive, this bug triggers disappointment among fans. In the event-exclusive brawl Lucioball, fans have also reported several bugs that Blizzard is trying to address. It appears that the game has been recently riddled with pestering bugs.

Junkrat bug

On Reddit, a user by the name HotSkipAndARump shared his experience while playing the latest game mode in “Overwatch.” The Redditor noticed that, while on the Deathmatch game mode using Junkrat, the traps the hero used for his enemies get him trapped instead.

To back its claim, HotSkipAndARump posted a clip, which shows the effect of the bug. The issue, however, was experienced in the Free-For-All Deathmatch.

Some fans speculate that it might just be an isolated case and that it does not exist in the team deathmatch. Blizzard has not yet commented on the recent issue with Junkrat in Deathmatch game mode. Most likely, an upcoming update would fix this bug. You can check out the clip about Junkrat’s bug below.

Heroes play time ranking

Recently, Game Director Jeff Kaplan shared with the community the heroes’ playtime ranking of Blizzard’s first-person shooter title. The ranking is based on the time the players spent playing the heroes between August 2 and August 9. Kaplan shared both the Quick Play [VIDEO] ranking and the Competitive match heroes ranking.

In the Quick Play, Genji tops that list of the most number of play time the hero is played. He is followed by the newest hero in the game Doomfist on the second spot and Hanzo on the third spot. McCree and Soldier: 76 rank fourth and fifth in the Quick Play heroes ranking. On the other hand, the Competitive Match revealed a different ranking result. Mercy dominated the list of the heroes ranking with a wide margin. She is followed by D.Va and Lucio on the second and third spots respectively. Genji is in the fourth spot with Soldier: 76 tailing behind him at the fifth spot.

Kaplan underlined that the ranking only shows who among the heroes in the game is played by fans most often in the matches. He emphasized, however, that this does not necessarily mean that the ranking makes the hero better than others. He added that the difference in the rank could be in terms of seconds or minute.

Meanwhile, players are now waiting for the release date of the latest update in the “Overwatch” public test realm. The patch 1.14 contains the Deathmatch game mode [VIDEO], and the heroes balance changes for Orisa, Widowmaker, Junkrat, and Roadhog that fans have been aching to get their hands on. #Junkrat Trap Bug
