The Junkenstein Arcade mode in Overwatch is a seasonal event available only during the Halloween Terror weeks. It usually comes with two modes – Junkenstein’s Revenge and Junkenstein Endless, each with four difficulties – Normal, Hard, Expert and Legendary. The harder the game mode, the higher the score you get per second of survival.
The revenge mode has a maximum score as it has a maximum number of waves and the game ends at wave 12. The Endless mode, however, has unlimited number of bonus waves after wave 12. You have to try to hold the castle and survive as long as possible to get the highest possible score. If you want to challenge the highest score possible, play the Junkenstein Endless mode.
Symmetra is still an absolute beast in the current meta due to her overpowered left-click’s Photon Projector. She has been so OP that Blizzard decided to nerf her Projector’s damage and width back in Sept 2019, but that doesn’t stop her from continuing dominating the game. She is still very much viable as a DPS even after the nerf. She is definitely still the best pick in maps such as Hanamura.
In this guide, we will show you some of the best spots for placing Sym’s sentry turret and teleporter both as a defender or an attacker.

McCree, to be frank, requires good aiming and tracking skills to be effective. Tracking skill is important for all other DPS heroes but not as impactful as McCree’s. Unlike other easier DPS heroes like Reaper, as a McCree, you will need absolute accuracy to actually hit the target.
