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.

      Here come the patch notes for today's update, featuring the already announced Anniversary event, but also bringing the biggest update to Overwatch in a long time to live servers - the Workshop has arrived! You can check out a detailed walkthrough for the new tool here.
      Baptiste and Hammond also receive some fixes to how their abilities interact with moving platforms and there's a whole lot of bug fixes as usual.

      New Seasonal Event: Overwatch Anniversary 2019
      Celebrate Overwatch’s third anniversary with brand new items, including Legendary and Epic skins like Riot Police Brigitte, Academy D.Va, Carbon Fiber Doomfist, Honeydew Mei, Orbital Pharah, Gargoyle Winston, and many more! Did you miss any Overwatch festivities over the previous years? Don’t worry—you’ll be able to unlock items from past events using credits (or by opening Loot Boxes!) Relive the thrill of previous seasonal brawls in the Arcade, with a brawl of the day rotating throughout the Anniversary celebration. Thank you so much for playing Overwatch with us over the past three years! Your continued support and enthusiasm help drive us to keep creating. We look forward to celebrating with you in-game!
      Workshop
      We’re excited to share a new in-game feature called the Workshop! The Workshop greatly expands the game customization features available in the Game Browser by providing a simplified game scripting system. Enhance the Overwatch game modes you know and love with new game rules, new victory conditions, adjustments to the hero movement and abilities, and much more. Once you’ve designed an awesome new game mode, create a code to share it with your friends or the whole community*! To get started using the Workshop, see our Workshop blog post. We’re excited to see what you come up with! (* Codes created in China cannot be shared with the rest of the world. Codes created outside of China can’t be used by players in China.) Note that Workshop is a complex feature that we’re still iterating on, so we may need to adjust or turn it off as we work to improve it. Please post any questions or issues in the Workshop forum.

      KNOWN ISSUES
      Overwatch Anniversary
      Some event rewards (Skins, Icons, etc.) aren’t translated into Japanese. We’re working on finishing up these translations. We’ll add these translations in an upcoming release. Workshop
      The in-game link to the Workshop Forum will currently send you to the English, Chinese, or Korean forum, depending on your region. This will be fixed in an upcoming release. Workshop isn’t completely translated into Japanese. We’re working on finishing up the translations. We’ll add these translations in an upcoming release.
