Listen up you wretched scum. I see your struggles. Trying to survive in the wasteland. It's time to face the facts. The end of the world's come and gone. Your past lives are a dream. It's time you woke up. They thought they could take our land and give it to the machines? They were wrong. We won the war. And now we reap the spoils. We built a new world from the ashes. So step into the Scrapyard. No rules. No mercy. Only the strong survive. This is your queen. Welcome to the apocalypse. Welcome to Junkertown.

The Queen of Junkertown (often simply called "the Queen")[1] is the cutthroat leader of the Junkers. She is based in Junkertown.[2] All the Junkers have to be careful from getting on her bad side.[1] She has a group of enforcers that she sends round to the people of Junkertown when they don't pay their taxes, among other tasks.[3]

Story[edit | edit source]

The Queen was originally a fighter in the Scrapyard. A charismatic and skilled fighter, she eventually became the town's ruler.[1]

One of the town's Junkers named Junkrat blabbed on and on about a 'treasure' he had found in the ruins of the Australian omnium. She came to suspect that his claims might have some truth in them, and she sent some of her enforcers to wring the truth out of him. Unfortunately, the enforcers were incapacitated by another Junker named Roadhog, who became Junkrat's partner in crime.[3] The two went on to cause the Queen a string of problems, including stealing her gold and blowing up her summer shack. The pair were exiled as a result[4] and she gave orders for them to not be re-admitted to Junkertown, and if they were seen again, to shoot them on sight.[5] After a worldwide heist spree, they returned to Junkertown to assassinate her but were stopped at the town gates.[4]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Similar to HAL-Fred Glitchbot on the Hollywood map, the Queen has in-game voice lines on certain triggers throughout Junkertown.
