Introduction to Hanzo by our Heroes of the Storm Professionals

Hanzo is a Hero that our Heroes of the Storm boosting team has predicted would join the Nexus. :) He’s a ranged assasin from the Overwatch franchise. Extremely fun to play with multiple builds potential for various maps. He resembles League of Legends’ Ashe a lot, especially when it comes to his second heroic ability.

His Q is a skillshot arrow that charges up but you can walk while charging and aiming. His W is a Scatter Arrow, a powerful bunch of bouncing arrows great for tight spots. His E is a an arrow that reveals the area for a certain amount of time.

Tips & Tricks

1. You can only jump over terrain with passive if you’re close to the wall.

2. Try not spamming Scatter Arrow randomly, rather hold the key to see where it will bounce (in case of quick cast usage) before shooting.

3. Scatter Arrow is also a great tool to check brushes if there’s a wall to bounce off.

4. In fights, try to position yourself near walls so you can easily escape if necessary.

4. Make sure to learn how to Stutter Step to effectively deal constant damage as Hanzo.

5. If you hit a hero with your revealing E arrow, it sticks to them until it expires, meaning they carry it with them and you see where they move.

6. Scatter Arrow is great for revealing stealthed heroes. A great combo would be Scatter Arrow to reveal them, doing some damage to them and then if they escape, try landing your E revealing arrow to track them further.

7. On Dragon Shire, you could play the Storm Bow build to get extra range and delay the Dragon objective in the middle.

8. On Battlefield of Eternity, you could play Scatter Arrow build so you can burst down the boss quickly.

9. If playing Dragonstrike as heroic ability, first wait for some kind of crowd control from your team before launching it, or communicate with your team and announce you will use it soon so they prepare crowd control such as E.T.C’s heroic.

10. If playing Dragon’s Arrow as heroic, practice calculating the projected path of the heroes’ movement compared to the arrows’ speed so you can hit them on long range, as in, aiming the arrow at the spot they will BE ON when the arrow lands, not where the hero is currently at.
