Mobile Legends: Bang Bang - BlueStacks Tips and Tricks for Picking Counter Heroes, Items and Spells
In your journey of rank pushing, once in a while, you will always land up in a situation where your favorite hero isn’t able to sustain or hold your lane. You may also end up feeding in the entire match and get reported for that. But after all, there is nothing to blame for your skills rather you should focus on the hero.
The main reason you lost the match is all because you messed up the draft. Always remember, the drafting phase is very crucial before a match in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. During the draft, all you need to remember is to look at the enemy’s team composition and choosing a counter hero for it.
In this guide, we will take a look at how you can choose a counter for the heroes in each class in the enemy team. In this one, we will consider the meta picks of this season to set an example. So, without any further ado let’s dive into the counter pick guide.
These heroes deal an insane amount of damage right from the start till the end of the game. The most vulnerable category of heroes is Mage and Marksman. Due to the nature of high damage less durability, these heroes become easy prey to the Assassins. In addition, Assassins are also quite mobile as they have blink, dash and other CC skills which helps them flee a potentially dangerous situation.
The best Assassins as of now are Hayabusa, Gusion, Natalia and Selena and Lancelot. These mentioned heroes are a combination of magic and physical burst damage. In order to counter the best way is to use a CC hero to interrupt the skill casting of the hero or use counter items and spells to lessen the damage.

Best Items to sustain the burst damage – Wind of Nature and Winter Truncheon

The HP on the late game is annoying to deal with, right? With items, the game provides, from mid to late the health of the tanks are quite huge and that’s because they are here to peel and sustain the damage for the team. Some tanks perform quite exceptional with armours while some with HP items.
The best way to melt a tank is by using armour penetration item and heroes that deal true damage. If you are wondering what is actually true damage, basically it is a type of damage that ignores the shields, armours and eats up the base HP of a tank or hero.
Best counter heroes – Karrie, Alpha, Lunox
Best items to melt tanks – Endless Battle, Thunderbelt, Necklace of Durance, Deadly Blade
Best Spells – Vengeance, Flicker
After Assassins, this category of hero is the highest damage dealing which mainly scales up from mid to late game. These heroes are usually regarded as the carry of the team and are mainly accompanied by Tanks and Supports. Mostly, the base attributes and skillsets of these heroes help them inflict huge damage within a few items.
You must have often heard about delaying the farm of the carry by zoning them or by constantly ganking them by stealing buffs. It is all about carrying out the objectives and leading in gold, which will mostly ensure victory.

The third category that deals equal damage like Marksman and Assassin, Mage. Mages pretty much hold the mid lane and rotate around the map for possible ganks. Usually, when the team requires magic damage or a mid laner, Mage comes into play. But keep in mind, when the enemy uses a magic penetration item or anti-heal, it could be a nightmare for you to deal with them even if they are squishy.
The best picks or bans ranging from high to mid elo are Alice, Esmeralda, Chang’e, Yve, Kagura etc. And all of them are high magic burst and shield heroes. With perfect item and rotation, they can even carry the entire game.
