An Overwatch 2 leak claiming to show off skills for an emerging hero, The Junker Queen, may contain the first look at the highly anticipated character.
The Junker Queen has been a fan favorite Overwatch character since she was first introduced to the Junker Town map. While fans haven’t seen her in action yet, she’s already designed tons of fan art and concepts around her.
With the Overwatch 2 beta in full swing and fans eager to release another hero after Sojourn, fans have turned their attention to an older leak from before the beta came out detailing the upcoming hero’s capabilities.
Funnily enough, it turns out that when adjusting the hue on the leaked images, players were able to distinguish her design, giving them more credibility.
Leaked Overwatch 2 Images May Have Revealed The Junker Queen
As Dexerto first reported on April 5, former Overwatch League coach Félix “Féfé” Munch showed images sent to him showing the upcoming hero’s abilities.
After the Overwatch 2 beta was released, players noticed that hero skill icons now align with their character model in the hero selection screen.
Redditor ‘Stuck-In-Orbit’ pointed out that by adjusting the hue in the original leaked images, it’s possible to distinguish the Junker Queen model with blue hair, red eyes and lips.
“By changing the shades on the leak’s capability icon and lining them up, we can really distinguish the Junker Queen model,” the user wrote. “We can see her forehead + punky spikes + hairline below the ult icon, her eyes below the battle cry icon, and her grinning mouth (with a scar just above it) below the carnage.”
This is consistent with what we know about the hero’s appearance from sprays, original story videos, and in-game items.
While this new discovery doesn’t reveal too much new information, it does add some important legitimacy to the previous leak and seems to indicate that The Junker Queen is quite far in development.
New tank and support heroes are on their way in future Overwatch 2 betas, and it seems increasingly likely that The Junker Queen will arrive very soon.
The only question is: will she be a support or a tank? We may not have long to find out.
