How do people here feel about attack Junkrat?

Viable/Bad/Throw pick?

I love him on Attack. I don’t get a ton of kills, but I get lots of assists and play keep away/harass tanks, and hunt down supports and rain hell. He’s also super good for Hail Mary/tide turning rip tires.

Sorry I’m not sure what you’re talking about.

All I’m saying is that yeah, I do get eliminations, but not as much as I would on defense, and that I like using him for crowd control and harassing.

I just see everyone always talking about “the meta” and “throw picks” and all this stuff, so I’m curious what the community thinks about it. It usually works for me, but I’d use something else if there is another hero I could use in the same fashion.

I’m just can’t really do DPS and offense, so I try to make Tanks/Support/DEF characters work for me on Attack

If you're not doing that much, then just switch. Personally I hate seeing attack Junkrat except on very few 2cp maps. That dps pick could go to someone else, or if it's a third dps pick, it could go to the other tank or support pick.

Yeah, no. Jake going Spamrat in the Overwatch League was so effective that some teams resorted to trying to counter it with a Spamrat of their own. Even London (the winners of Stage 1) did that.

If even pro players often have a hard time countering something as simple as spamming chokepoints and corridors with grenades/mines, then please, tell me how you expect the average player to do it.
