Overwatch Halloween Terror 2021 Junkenstein's Revenge: Everything you need to know

Junkenstein’s Revenge has four difficulty modes: Normal, Hard, Expert, and Legendary.

In Junkenstein’s Revenge, players can choose from the following roster of characters to face the Zomnics. Keep in mind that there can only be one per team:

  • Ana
  • Ashe
  • Hanzo
  • McCree 
  • Soldier: 76 
  • Tracer 
  • Genji
  • Torbjörn 
  • Brigitte
  • Widowmaker
  • Zenyatta
  • Baptiste

The ultimate objective of Junkenstein’s Revenge is to survive all of the waves, chock-full of all kinds of Zomnics and bosses to take on. The game will end if the horde breaks down the castle doors or kills all of the players at once. When players die, they will take 12 seconds to respawn, so make sure they all stay alive.

Amidst all of the enemy types players can find in the game, Zombardiers can be the most difficult to handle. Take care of them first and foremost to manage the crowds better. 

There is an optional Endless mode and several other mission variants if players are looking for something more challenging:

  • Vengeful Ghost - A spirit constantly follows the players and damages them.
  • Frenzied Stampede - Zomnics move much faster.
  • Volatile Zomnics - Zomnics can explode.
  • Three They Were - Only three players can play, but they do extra damage.
  • Mystery Swap - Players randomly change heroes.
  • Shocking Surprise - Enemies can spawn Shock Tires upon death.

Junkenstein’s Revenge is now available for players to take on during Halloween Terror 2021, which runs from Oct. 12 to Nov. 2.
