Roadhog is Junkrat's dad, but that is just a theory. A GAME THEORY.
@Robin the Tactician, blizzard confirms it in that early video of them going on a crime spree together, I'm like 18% certain they say it.
@Robin the Tactician, thanks for watching!
@I Broke Benjamin, they aren't related. At least not to our current knowledge. The origins trailer only mentions them being two idiots. And many people think that roadhog is also Australian, but he's from New Zeland, not saying u do but just putting it out there regardless.
"Roadhog is junkrats dad" theory aside, this would actually fit into the overwatch lore pretty well
Im pretty sure the core only exploded a couple of years before present day. Found one thing that said like 5 years. That puts junkrat around 20 when it explodes
@Pope Temporal, actually it exploded during the omic crisis which occured around 20-30 years ago (time varies for various characters bios) which would put him around that age.
@APurpleDragon, it's definitely after the omnic crisis. The outback was given to the omnics after the crisis, and the people who lived there didn't like that. So they formed the ALF and led attacks against the omnics, eventually blowing up the core. The wiki doesn't say how long it took to do that though.
This explains alot, like why 'Stralia's wildlife is so deadly. 🐍
