Overwatch 2 Junker Queen Guide – Playstyle

Overwatch 2 Junker Queen Guide will not teach you how to adjust to any situation on the battlefield but how should this hero be played.  Junker Queen is a tank that plays on the front lane. She is a very aggressive type of tank that want to chase enemies until they die.

Unfortunately, it's not always a good decision because a lot depends on your teammates, especially on supports. If u are getting enough heal you will be unstoppable but if your healer won't be able to out–heal enemy damage dealers you will die immediately due to a lack of any shields or escape mechanisms.

She is a very immobile hero so she can't really be played into every match up but if the enemy plays, for example, Roadhog or Zarya who don't have any mobility it will just work. Playing Junker Queen as a defense tank won't lead you to anything.

She doesn't have a shield that will protect your team and she has a shotgun that obviously is the best at close range so as long as enemies wait and deal damage from afar you will be useless.

Is Junker Queen In the Meta?

Junker Queen was introduced in Overwatch 2 but she isn't very popular.  As I play the game that she was barely visible in any ranked game I played. 

Junker Queen doesn't seem to be a very strong hero and that's definitely true. Her only movement ability is Commanding Shout which also provides her survivability so she can't really use it to chase enemies that survived and try to hide from our team.

She doesn't really have many health points so she can't take much on the face, so what is the tank doing if not tanking? She just doesn't have a kit that fits in meta nowadays that is very dynamic and everyone deals a lot of damage.
