Junkrat tosses out a giant, metal-toothed trap. Should an enemy wander too close to the trap, it clamps on, injuring and immobilizing them.
Default Key: (PC E, PS R1, XB RB)

Details Edit

  • Junkrat throws a trap that will immobilize the first enemy that walks within 1 meter for 3 seconds. While trapped, enemies can look around and fire their primary weapon, but cannot use movement abilities. Only one trap may be active at a time.
  • Steel Traps will appear to enemies to be slightly submerged in the ground, making them harder to see. However, enemies can destroy it manually if it has not yet trapped anyone. Junkrat will be notified if either outcome occurs.

Trivia Edit

  • The Steel Trap is not legally permitted for the hunting of any animal on Earth.[1]
