Real Name: Mako Rutledge, Age: 48 Occupation: Enforcer (formerly), Bodyguard Base of Operations: Junkertown, Australia (formerly) Affiliation: Junkers (formerly)
Scrap Gun - Fires short-range blasts of shrapnel with a wide spread. Alternatively launches a ball of shrapnel which detonates farther away.
Take a Breather - Restores health over time to Roadhog.

Whole Hog - Pours in extra ammo into his Scrap Gun which makes shrapnel knock back enemies.
"I'm a one-man apocalypse."
Roadhog is a ruthless killer with a well-earned reputation for cruelty and wanton destruction.
After the Omnic Crisis, government officials gifted the Australian omnium and the surrounding area to the omnics that had nearly destroyed their country, hoping to establish a long-term peace accord. This arrangement permanently displaced Mako Rutledge and a large number of the Outback's residents, a scattered collection of survivalists, solar farmers, and people who just wanted to be left alone.
Furious over the loss of their homes, Mako and others turned to violent rebellion. They formed the Australian Liberation Front and struck against the omnium and its robot population to take back the lands that had been stolen. Events continued to escalate until the rebels sabotaged the omnium's fusion core, resulting in an explosion that destroyed the facility, irradiated the region, and littered the Outback with twisted metal and wreckage for kilometers around.
Mako watched as his home became an apocalyptic wasteland, and he was forever changed.
Adapting to his environment, he donned a mask and took to the broken highways of the Outback on his ramshackle chopper. Little by little, his humanity was forgotten. The last vestiges of Mako faded away and the ruthless killer Roadhog was born.
Real Name: Jamison Fawkes, Age: 25 Occupation: Anarchist, Thief, Demolitionist, Mercenary, Scavenger Base of Operations: Junkertown, Australia (formerly) Affiliation: Junkers (formerly)
Frag Launcher - Lobs grenades a significant distance. They bounce and blow up when they strike an enemy.
Concussion Mine - Place a mine on the ground and then activate it to cause damage to an enemy and to send them flying. Can also be used to propel Junkrat through the air.
Steel Trap - Place a trap on the ground. If an enemy walks into it, they take damage and are immobilized.
Total Mayhem - On death, drop several live grenades.
RIP-Tire - Send out a motorized tire bomb across the battlefield which can climb walls and obstacles. Can be remotely detonated or will go off on its own.
"It's a perfect day for some mayhem." Junkrat is an explosives-obsessed freak who lives to cause chaos and destruction.
The attack on the Australian omnium's fusion core forever altered the landscape of the Outback. After the detonation, the area was transformed into a harsh, irradiated wasteland, littered with debris and the twisted fragments of the ruined facility, and unlivable to most.
But there were some who survived. Calling themselves the Junkers, they scavenged the husk of the omnium and formed a lawless, cutthroat society in its shadow. Junkrat was one of them, eking out a living reclaiming metal and components from the ruins. Like many others, he was affected by the lingering radiation. This touch of madness made him ideal for handling dangerous explosives, a love which he turned into an obsession.
He came to notoriety when he discovered an extremely valuable secret in the bones of the omnium. Though few knew the nature of what he found, he was nonetheless pursued by bounty hunters, gangs, and opportunists wherever he went, until he made a deal with the Junker enforcer Roadhog, who grudgingly agreed to be his personal bodyguard in exchange for a fifty-fifty share of the spoils.
Now, with Roadhog in tow, Junkrat has left the Outback, and embarked upon an international crime spree leaving nothing but havoc and bedlam in his wake.

Kao što je i obećano, Blizzard je objavio imena dva nova heroja koji nam se pridružuju Overwatchu! Junkrat i Roadhog su danas najavljeni preko Overwatch YouTube kanala. Preko video zapisa imamo samo par osnovnih informacija o ovim herojima.
I dalje nema zvaničnih detalja o njihovim abilitima.
Twitch dodao je novu opciju koja vam omogućava da povežete svoje Battle.net nalog sa Twitch.tv nalogom. A ukoliko se odlučite na ovaj korak, Blizzard će Vas nagraditi sa Heroes of the Storm portretom, i one koji budu pratili preko svojih naloga Heroes of the Storm regionalni šampionat.
Twitch and Blizzard are teaming up to reward those who not only love to play Heroes of the Storm, but watch it, too!
Secure your portrait For a limited time, anyone who watches a Heroes of the Storm regional championship while logged into Twitch with a linked Battle.net account will receive a special “Storm Watcher” portrait in Heroes of the Storm.
Your first opportunity to secure this portrait is quickly approaching. Tune in to the Americas Championship on September 19 and 20, and you’ll be among the first to receive the new portrait. After watching the Americas or other regional championship events, the portrait will be awarded to qualifying players starting in October, when it will appear in your in-game portrait collection.
Log in to your account on Twitch.
Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen.
Click on the Connections tab.
Follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect next to Battle.net.
Do I need to keep my accounts linked to receive the portrait? In order to make sure we're able to properly grant the portrait award, please make sure you leave the accounts linked until the portrait has been awarded to your Battle.net account. We hope to offer additional promotions using this technology in the future, so we recommend leaving the account link in place if you’re interested in participating.
If I watch another region's championship and have my account linked, will I receive the reward in my home region? Yes, watching the Americas, Korea, Europe, or Taiwan championships on Twitch will grant you the in-game portrait in all regions.
If I watch the event on a mobile device will I receive the portrait? Yes, as long as you are logged in to Twitch and your accounts are linked while you watch the event, you will be eligible for the portrait reward.
Will other Blizzard games offer similar promotions? The Heroes of the Storm “Storm Watcher” portrait is the only active promotion currently available. We’re considering rolling out similar promotions for our other games, but we don’t have any additional details to share at this time.
