Do you like using Lapu-Lapu in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang? If your answer is yes, then this guide is for you!

As the Great Chief, Lapu-Lapu needs to be equipped with the proper items so he can unleash his full might in battle. Fortunately, this guide provides item build ideas for you to use so you can lead him to victory.

Item Build Ideas for Lapu-Lapu

Without further ado, here are three item builds that synergize well with Lapu-Lapu’s oppressive aura. You can follow them precisely or even tweak them a little bit. Do whatever it takes to be a legend!

  1. Tenacious Chief
  2. Savage King
  3. Jungle Menace

1. Tenacious Chief

For a warrior who’s as strong as he is durable, the Tenacious Chief build renders Lapu-Lapu virtually indestructible in battle.

What This Build Does

This build bestows overwhelming survivability upon Lapu-Lapu in the form of HP boosts, shield effects, a magic resistance increase, and spell vampirism. Aside from those elements, this build doesn’t really skimp in terms of offensive power.

Broadly, there’s a nice blend of offense and defense for Lapu-Lapu if you ever decide to don the Tenacious Chief build. Unlike glass cannon builds, this build may allow Lapu-Lapu to persist in battle for as long as possible. The longer he survives with the least amount of deaths, the more chances he can carry the whole team towards victory.

Item Stats and Bonuses

1. Bloodlust Axe

  • +70 Physical Attack
  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • +20% Spell Vampirism (Unique)

2. Magic Shoes

  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • +40 Movement Speed (Unique)

3. Blade of the 7 Seas

  • +75 Physical Attack
  • +300 HP
  • Unique Passive (Steamroll): Reduces the defense of enemies by 25 points for 3 seconds when hitting them with damaging skills.

4. Rose Gold Meteor

  • +60 Physical Attack
  • +30 Magic Resistance
  • +5% Lifesteal
  • Unique Passive (Lifeline): Grants a shield that can absorb 510–1350 damage (increases with level) for 3 seconds when the hero’s HP drops below 30%. This effect has a cooldown of 40 seconds.

5. Malefic Roar

  • +60 Physical Attack
  • +40 Physical Penetration
  • Unique Passive (Armor Buster): Causes basic attacks to ignore 20% of the defensive armor of turrets.

6. Immortality

  • +800 HP

2. Savage King

Physical attack, cooldown reduction, attack speed, and spell vampirism—you get all of these with the Savage King build! But of course, the primary goal of this build is to cause Lapu-Lapu to become as offensively minded as possible.

What This Build Does

This build offers quite a huge chunk of physical attack. As a matter of fact, 5 of the core items present here raises Lapu-Lapu’s overall damaging prowess for both his basic attack and skills. Also, the addition of the Berserker's Fury increases his attack potential even more. With the increase in critical chance and critical damage, Lapu-Lapu’s attacks become even more deadly.

As far as overpowering physical potential goes, the Savage King build is the best option for Lapu-Lapu. With this build, every attack that comes from Lapu-Lapu is guaranteed to be more damaging than the last.

Item Stats and Bonuses

1. Bloodlust Axe

  • +70 Physical Attack
  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • +20% Spell Vampirism (Unique)

2. Magic Shoes

  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • +40 Movement Speed (Unique)

3. Endless Battle

4. Berserker’s Fury

  • +65 Physical Attack
  • +25% Critical Chance
  • +40% Critical Damage (Unique)
  • Unique Passive (Doom): Increases the hero’s Physical Attack by 5% for 2 seconds after landing a critical hit.

  • Unique Passive (Despair): Raises the hero’s physical attack damage by 30% for 2 seconds after attacking enemies that have less than 50% HP.

3. Jungle Menace

If jungling is inevitably part of your gameplay, then the Jungle Menace build might be the best option for you!

What This Build Does

This build has a high damage output and a high cooldown reduction for Lapu-Lapu’s skills. Also, this build allows Lapu-Lapu to jungle more efficiently so that he can farm a lot of experience and gold early in the game.

The thing about this build is that it is totally fixated on physical power and jungling. That may be good for the early and middle stages of the game, but it's not that effective towards the late game. This build is, in fact, quite close to a typical glass cannon build. As such, you have to jungle effectively and try to ensure that you get the upper hand as early as possible.

About the Raptor Machete

Taking everything into account, you should remember that by using the Jungle Menace build, you need to do things precisely and try to end the game as fast as possible. You have the Raptor Machete to ease your jungling capabilities so use that to your advantage. After you complete the items listed here, you can swap the Raptor Machete for another damaging item if you want more power, or a defensive item like Immortality if you think the game will last longer. The decision is totally up to you, so be flexible and try to carry your team towards victory as soon as you possibly can!

Item Stats and Bonuses

1. Raptor Machete

  • +30 Physical Attack
  • +15 Physical Penetration
  • +30% Damage to Monsters (Unique)
  • Unique Passive (Greed): Gains 30% extra experience when jungling. Also, regains 4% of total HP and 10% of total Mana after killing a jungle monster.
  • Unique Passive (Gorge): Increases Physical Attack by 4 points every time a jungle monster is killed. This effect can stack up to 10 times. Also, the “Retribution” battle spell becomes applicable to enemy heroes by having the effect of reducing their Movement Speed by 70%, which gradually decays within 3 seconds. Using “Retribution” also deals a small amount of true damage against enemy heroes.

2. Magic Shoes

  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • +40 Movement Speed (Unique)

3. Bloodlust Axe

  • +70 Physical Attack
  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • +20% Spell Vampirism (Unique)

4. Hunter Strike

  • +100 Physical Attack
  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • Unique Passive (Hunt): Attacks an enemy 5 times in a row and increases the hero’s Movement Speed by 30% for 2 seconds. This effect has a cooldown of 15 seconds.

5. Malefic Roar

  • +60 Physical Attack
  • +40 Physical Penetration
  • Unique Passive (Armor Buster): Causes basic attacks to ignore 20% of the defensive armor of turrets.

6. Blade of Despair
