Junkrat's Total Mayhem passive ability makes him immune to explosive damage from his own grenades. I was curious how this would work with Genji's deflect ability.

As a Junkrat, it would be hilarious if I could defeat a Genji by getting him to blow himself up while deflecting my grenades. I'd assume it's possible since the damage immunity is part of Junkrat's passive, but I haven't been able to test this myself.

Can Genji damage himself while reflecting Junkrat's grenades if he's close enough or does Junkrat's perk prevent it?

Total Mayhem perk

    doubt it. No damage from explosive comes from Junkrat Passive, not his Grenade. Commented Jun 7, 2017 at 4:38

    @TanyavonDegurechaff That's what I'm assuming as well, but I can't be certain.

    Genji deflect works by erasing deflected bullet then generate new bullet. so it's like Genji shooting grenade. & Genji doesn't have Total Mayhem passive Commented Jun 7, 2017 at 5:07
  • The only problem would be is that the junkrat has to get close enough to blow himself up

  • "Does Junkrat's perk mean that Genji can damage himself..." so your question is worded wrong. Should say "Can Genji damage himself...." or "Does Junkrat's perk prevent Genji from damaging himself...."

Yes, Genji will take damage if the bomb explodes close enough to Genji and can kill himself. Since Genji doesnt have Junkrat's passive "Total Mayhem".

    Have you tested this yourself, or are you assuming based on the in-game ability?

    So YES instead of "nope" - if the rest of your statement proves true

  • It appears like genji does hurt himself from reflected total mayhem grenades
