Ultimate: Junkrat’s Rip-Tire is a sure way to get behind enemy lines and kill their healer/squishy DPS. When you’re about to use this make sure you utilize jump and obstacles (Rip-Tire can climb some walls and jump). Your Rip-Tire only has 100 health, so it is important to be sneaky with this ultimate or else the enemy will quickly disable it.
It’s a perfect day for some mayhem.
