The Apex Legends PVPX master was one of the world’s most talented Junkrat players in the original Overwatch and now he’s taking on OW2 and showing people how to stop Pharah perfectly.
The launch of Overwatch 2 has drawn many veteran players into the arena to test out how the new title compares to its predecessor. PVPX was one of those players, and it didn’t take long for him to get comfortable again.
In a clip posted to his TikTok, the BR pro set up an intelligence clinic, showing exactly how easy it can be to take down Pharah with a few placed shots from everyone’s favorite Grenadier.
PVPX shows how to perfectly counter Pharah with Junkrat in Overwatch 2
The short video kicks off with PVPX already posted outside the enemy spawn, ready to punish the unsuspecting opposing team and keep them trapped deep within their own territory.
As the players manage to escape, Master Junkrat and his team manage to take them out with well-placed spam from his grenade launcher.
Unfortunately for the enemy jetpack carrier, she gets caught three times in less than 45 seconds as Junkrat simply takes over the entire hall.
Sure, it takes a lot of skill to land shots as clean as the ones in the video, but if you have what it takes to land them, the strategy of jumping through the air with a concussion mine then to use the second throw right in Pharah’s face is a surefire way to get the job done.
Overwatch 2’s balance changes propelled Junk to the top tier of DPS characters. Learning small tricks that will help you tame the Chaotic Explosive Hobbyist could come in handy if the meta stays the same until December, as Blizzard previously suggested.
