In these game modes, your team must fight waves of zombie omnics and enemies such as Reaper, Roadhog, Symmetra, Junkrat, and Mercy.
Junkenstein Vengeful Ghost
Vengeful Ghost requires your team to defeat Junkenstein's forces while avoiding Sigma. If Sigma gets too close to a player, then he chips away at the player's health total.
Junkenstein Frenzied Stampede
In Frenzied Stampede, the zombie omnics move faster than normal. Defeat them before they get close to the castle door.
Junkenstein Three They Were
Instead of four players in total, the Three They Were game mode involves three players only. However, these players deal more damage.
Junkenstein Shocking Surprise
In Shocking Surprise, some enemies spawn Junkrat's Shock-Tires upon death. Eliminate these before they reach you and your teammates.
Junkenstein Mystery Swap
Mystery Swap periodically randomizes heroes. For example, if you start the game with one hero, then the game automatically switches your hero throughout the game.
Junkenstein Volatile Zomnics
Volatile Zomnics features enemies that explode near players. Therefore, keep your distance while taking these down.
