An Overwatch jump pad bug has been found for Reaper. The bug allows Reaper to launch into the air far away from the jump pad. The video was posted on Reddit by "bibanez03" and shows them teleport while jumping into the air.

The video shows Reaper use Shadow Step while stepping onto the jump pad. This makes Reaper jump into the air after teleporting. This might be useful since there is a period of time after teleporting that Reaper is vulnerable to attack and because his voiceline when teleporting is very loud, but being farther away will make it quieter. Even if the distance is vertical.

This Reaper trick also works on other maps with jump pads like Oasis. While it probably isn't a great way to kill flying enemies like a Pharah, it is still a neat trick to keep in mind just in case death blossom might be dropping out of the sky near you.

Comments of Reddit pointed out that a similar trick can be achieved using Symmetra's teleporter. By teleporting while using the jump pad, the heroes continue to jump. This could be useful if possible to do as a team on a map like Oasis.
