The Halloween event Junkenstein's Revenge has three difficulty options to choose from - easy, medium, and hard. Aside from playing at a level that feels challenging enough to be enjoyable, is there any reward difference (EXP or other unlockables) that would encourage playing at higher difficulties?
There's no way to play beyond Hard mode.
There are achievements for beating Junkenstein's Revenge for:
- Beating medium (Junkenstein's Revenge spray)
- Beating medium without any damage to the door (The Reapening spray)
- Beating hard (Halloween Special spray)
- Beating it using every hero once. (Rise of the Zomnics spray)
Each achievement of course has its own spray tied to it as a reward for gaining the achievement./
EXP is usually doled out by time played, and since typical Junkenstein matches take 6 - 8 minutes, I get roughly 2 - 2.2k exp. I tested this across easy, medium, and hard, and found no difference in EXP gain (completed all 3 modes).
Is there also a difference in maximum score? I notice when I play on easy, there are 2 lock symbols next to the stars, but some of my friends only have 1. Does this indicate they were playing on medium?– Unionhawk ♦Oct 12, 2016 at 3:23
@Unionhawk I don't have any proof since I only played medium so far, but I suspect that available stars are locked based on difficulty. On easy mode two stars are locked (making 3 stars the highest score you can get), medium has one star locked, and hard has all stars unlocked.– Mage XyOct 12, 2016 at 13:36
Do you get (any of) these in PS4? I have beaten easy and medium and I don't believe I received any awards. Oct 14, 2016 at 1:23
