Best Hanzo Build: Mobile Legends

Hanzo is one of the most threatening heroes in Mobile Legends; he has the ability to execute kills from a safe distance. Play this hero right, and you will be the deadliest on your team. On the other hand, playing it wrong can make you the most vulnerable on the battlefield.

This article will teach you how to play Hanzo effectively so that you can execute your role as an assassin.


  • Can kill from a safe distance
  • Deals deadly blows
  • Can farm and level up fast


  • Seriously squishy
  • Relies heavily on demon blood


  • Ame no Habakiri – This passive skill will let you collect demon blood, which dictates how long you can use Hanzo’s ultimate.
  • Ninjutsu: Demon Feast – This is the first skill you need to level up and max. Not to mention that this will also let you level up and farm faster. On normal form, demon feast lets you consume minions and convert them into demon blood. The amount depends on how powerful the minion is. Use this skill to your advantage by taking the buff that is given by minions (Serpent of Fiend) in the enemy’s territory.
  • Ninjutsu: Soul Reap – Hanzo’s range skill that can deal damage over time. Good for harassing enemies during the early game. The skill can farm some demon blood and cause slow effect.
  • Kinjutsu: Pinnacle Ninja – This will buff your Hanzo by summoning a demon with increases attack speed and movement speed. The demon can also pass any obstacle, which gives you a lot of conveniences when you’re trying to kill your opponent. Activating this will provide Hanzo some demon blood (depending on level), so there’s no need to make your reserves full. If the demon is killed, it will stun Hanzo and will briefly be shown in the enemy's mini-map.

When Ultimate Is Activated

  • Ninjutsu: Demon Thorn – Hanzo’s deadliest skill deals good damage plus a percent of the target’s max HP. It can also knock an enemy airborne and provide demon blood. The requirement of Demon Thorn is that you need to execute five basic attacks first in order to use it.
  • Ninjutsu: Devastator – Hanzo’s gap closer that repeatedly damages enemies, which also triggers a basic attack for Demon Thorn.

Item Build

Since Hanzo relies heavily on the limited time of his ultimate, the items in this build will focus on increasing Hanzo’s already good movement speed. More movement speed means you can maximize the time when you’re in demon form.

  • Corrosion Scythe – The bonuses from this item are perfect for Hanzo (damage, attack speed, movement speed, and slow enemies), especially as the first item.
  • Magic Shoes – You need every cooldown that you can get since Hanzo relies heavily on his skills.
  • Endless Battle – An all-around offensive item with burst damage and life-steal capability.
  • Windtalker – Greatly improves your roaming and pushing capability.
  • Blade of Despair – Your ultimate damage-dealing item that works well with Hanzo’s skills.
  • Berserker's Fury – Makes your critical attacks better.


  • Raptor Machete – Use this item if you prefer to focus on jungling.
  • Blade of Heptaseas – This is a choice for those who want good burst damage.


  • Physical with Open Fire - The easiest emblem to level up is also an effective emblem option for Hanzo.
  • Assassin with High and Dry – Choose this emblem once you unlock High and Dry. It makes Hanzo a better assassin.

Battle Spell

Sprint – This battle spell can remove the slow penalty from Hanzo in case his demon dies. It’s also good for escaping or chasing.

How to Play

Learn Ninjutsu: Demon Feast at the beginning of the game. Before going to your lane, consume one of the elite minions (either the Serpent or Fiend). It's better if you can consume one on enemy territory. You can level up faster than your enemy by switching from lane to jungle territory every time Ninjutsu: Demon Feast is available. You can start hunting squishy enemy heroes once your ultimate is available.

Positioning should be the priority when using your ultimate. Position your hero in a safe location, like near the tower or inside the bush. Make sure it’s far away from enemies.

During ultimate, start with Ninjutsu: Devastator as a gap closer. Attack continuously, then cast Ninjutsu: Demon Thorn whenever it’s available.
