Junker Queen is the deadliest character in Overwatch 2’s battle for Olympus mode

Junker Queen is finally good at something.

Junker Queen dominates Overwatch 2’s new Battle for Olympus mode, easily racking up the most kills. This is according to Blizzard’s player data, which suggests that many of us took advantage of a recent oversight that completely overpowered her, allowing her to spam her ax non-stop in certain situations.

The stats, which rank each match for Olympus Hero based on how many kills they have accumulated so far, show that Junker Queen is in the lead by more than one million points. At the time of publication, players using the tank had accumulated 7,682,166 kills. This is much more than Pharah, who is in second place just ahead of Roadhog.

Seeing the Junker Queen in first place is quite ironic given the story behind the Battle for Olympus mode. The queen takes on the role of Zeus and allows other mythological figures to fight for ownership of Olympus, but only if they can best her in battle. Unless these stats change drastically by the end of the season, it’s likely that she’ll keep the keys to the Gods’ home for herself.

While Pharah is in second place, she’s still pretty far behind. We can also say with some degree of certainty that Reinhardt is out of the game, with less than half of Junker Queen’s kills. The rest of the gang, Roadhog, Lucio, Ramatra and Widowmaker, definitely have some catching up to do if they want to take on the Queen.

But as mentioned before, Junker Queen’s high ranking may have more to do with an oversight that has since been patched up. When the last update dropped, it was found that the cooldown on her ax could be completely bypassed as long as you hit certain parts of the maps, such as walls (thanks, PC player). This meant you could spam it non-stop, making quick work of shields and tanks. This has since been addressed by the developers, but not before players could rack up hundreds of kills.

Players can definitely use the helping hand as well. As we covered earlier today, the challenges added with the Battle for Olympus mode are ridiculously gritty. It’s so bad that players have to help each other and get killed so that others can complete the challenges. And now with no ax exploitation to play with, the community is really going to have to come together if we want to blast through these targets before the next update.
