Hanzo is an Assassin character with a specialty in Explosion. His gameplay is different from the other characters, considering that his ult can make him very vulnerable and, therefore, needs to be used very carefully.

Hanzo is one of the characters who can shape-shift and gain new abilities. However, unlike the others, the Blood Demon works as an extension of Hanzo, making the character not the easiest to use.

Check below the essentials for you to play Hanzo well.

(Passiva) Ame no Habakiri

When nearby units are eliminated, the Blood Demon absorbs their souls into its body to be used as energy. Gains 2 Demon Blood if they are non-hero units and 10 if they are a hero.

Ninjutsu: Demon Feast (Explosion)

Temporarily unlocks after 5 basic attacks. Hanzo uses Ame no Habakiri to devour an enemy unit and digest it over a period of time. By doing so, Hanzo gains 10 Demon Blood. Can only be used against creeps and minions. If the attack speed is fast enough, each attack by Hanzo can unlock 2 stacks.

Ninjutsu: Reaper (AoE)

Cooldown: 7.5

Hanzo opens the soul portal and deals 140 (+60% Total Physical Attack) physical damage immediately.

Tips on how to play with Hanzo


  • Only get into fights if you are in demon form and always keep your body hidden.
  • Whenever using the ult, check the minimap frequently. If your body is in danger, use the ult again to regain control.
  • Invade the enemy jungle as much as possible. The fact that Hanzo can pass through walls is a big advantage at this point.
  • During fights, always focus on enemies that do the most damage.
