You cannot escape Junkrat's trap using Wraith Form as stated here, in fact, it's a very powerful counter to Reaper's abilities.

Oh, that's a nice catch. Thanks, I'm updating it now to say that passing over the trap in Wraith Form doesn't trigger it.

Does shooting your shotguns at someone long range build up your ulti.

 

For example if you have nothing better to do is it worth peppering a team for the lucky hits / hs to build up ulti charge  Or is it better to totally give up on that and have a go at finding somewhere sneaky to hide?

Yes it is. Especially vs. things like Winston/Roadhog, who have MASSIVE hitboxes.

Listed as reapers cons is that he moves slowly. This is a common misconception he moves at the same rate as all other characters with exceptions of genji, tracer or boosted Lucio. He can actually out step many characters because his speed increases in wraith form.

Reaper is considered a slow moving hero, the little bit of speed increase in wraith form still puts him in the category slow. Besides tracer genji and lucio theres actually quite a few heroes which are considered to move fast. think about D.va, winston, Sombra, mercy, soldier:76, and even Reinhardt, junkrat and widowmaker up to an extent.

Moving quickly is not only about running speed but more about the time it's gonna take a hero to get to the other side of the map. Just try doing a race between mcCree and Hanzo for example. Hanzo is going to win that simply because he can wall climb and take shortcuts. McCree does have his roll but that is not really a good tool for mobility.

Reaper does score with his teleport though.

generally when your wraith form and teleport are both on cooldown and you are being chased by the enemy team, they will catch up to you since your mobility is 0 at that point. makingyou a slow moving hero.

It is indeed! It's a big task, but I'm hoping I can bring my experience to the guides and the new format should work much better. Quite a few of them are already complete, we are just working on finishing the setup of the new format on the site. Shouldn't be long (I hope!)

While that is true, reaper can't ESCAPE the junkrat trap by using wraith form. As in, if he got caught in it, he can't get out, although wraith form lasts longer than the trap, so you can render it useless. Also there is a reaper buff in the PTR that removes soul globes and adds health steal,

I'll be adding these points when I get round to rewriting Reaper's guide :)

This guide shows the old passive for Reaper. The Reaping no longer spawns health globes, instead it heals on damage.

      The events keep on rolling in, as we still have the Ana Bastet challenge going on until the 21st, and now Blizzard have already announced the next big one. The Lunar New Year is returning with the Year of the Pig and Solider:76 is pretty happy about it.
      So, new emotes, highlight intros for Solider at least, and a whole lot more cosmetics are coming next week, keeping things moving along and fresh.
      We also have a new video commissioned by Blizzard themselves by dillongoo, featuring a very fluffy Ana and Solider:

      There's a pretty staggering amount of OW Funko Pop figures out there (55!), from the basic models to more specific skins and designs, and that doesn't even cover all heroes! Game Informer has put together a list of all the different editions you can buy, some at exclusive retailers and pointed out that we still don't have a Bastion one!
      You can head on over there if you want to check out everything that's available, and here's a few of my picks for the best ones as well:

      Here come the announced PTR notes, focusing mainly on some armor changes, going from 5 to 3 maximum damage blocked (remaining at a cap of half of the original damage). We also have another Brigitte nerf, capping the duration of Rally to 30 seconds, a nef to D.Va's Defensive Matrix and a big buff to Reaper's self-healing.
      PTR Noes, January 8 (source)
      HERO UPDATES
      General
      Damage reduction from armor reduced from -5 to -3 Developer Comments: Before this change armor reduced all incoming damage by up to 5, maxing at half of the normal amount. This change reduces the damage reduction to 3, while still capping at half. This change will be mostly noticeable on heroes that fire quickly or in a burst of shots (such as shotguns), and which do more than 6 damage per shot. For example, Soldier: 76’s Heavy Pulse Rifle will now do 16 damage per shot to armor, up from 14, an increase of 15%. Armor was a bit too strong overall, especially when being healed quickly and often. This change will help more heroes fight against higher armored enemies.
      Brigitte
      Rally Now has a maximum duration of 30 seconds Developer Comments: Sometimes Rally could cause a snowballing effect where it was too difficult to deal with the increased health of Brigitte’s allies before she built up another one. This change puts a cap on how long her Rally effect can last to make it a bit more manageable in those situations.
      D.Va
      Defense Matrix Cooldown increased from 1 second to 2 seconds Developer Comments: This change allows D.Va’s enemies to try to play around her Defense Matrix by increasing its downtime between uses.
      Reaper
      The Reaping Life steal increased from 30% to 50% of damage dealt Developer Comments: Reaper’s passive is one of the main tools he has which allow him to play aggressively when near his enemies. This change allows him to keep the pressure up as long as he can stay near his enemies enough to keep dealing damage. This change is particularly effective versus tanks, as they tend to do less damage than damage heroes, and also take more damage from his Hellfire Shotguns due to their larger hit volumes.
