Eagle-eyed Overwatch players are often spotting undetected bugs in the game, especially where heroes abilities are concerned. In this particular instance, as posted by Reddit user Lamantho, Junkrat’s Ultracharge ability mysteriously disappears if PC players press the Q key whilst jumping. You can check this out in the GIF posted below:
There seems to be a number of animation issues that are present in Overwatch, and not all of them are necessarily based on Junkrat. For example, user slimchuggs detailed a situation in which jumping onto a payload led to an animation faux pas so to speak, leading to some understandable confusion:
“I tried to suit up after dva bomb, was jumping onto payload from a ledge and when I landed the animation hadn’t finished but my charge was gone n I was still baby dva. Then the kill feed read as the enemy dva killed my suit w her bomb but she had used it about 15 seconds before I did.”
There also seems to be respawning issues that are plaguing the popular Blizzard shooter, one of which has been outlined by fraghawk:
“when I respawned my camera was following our soldier. I was confused as I could still use my abilities and do voice lines and stuff. Well soldier walked around the map and my mech was stuck in a corner and the camera glitched. I had to walk off the map and die to reset it.”
With watchful Overwatch players able to spot and post issues such as these online, hopefully Blizzard will notice them and take the bugs onboard and look into fixing them as soon as possible. If you are yet to experience Overwatch, then the game is now available on PC, Xbox One and PS4, with this year’s Halloween event currently underway.
