Bristleback counter picks: who to choose against this hero in Dota 2

Counter picks

Bristleback is a powerful hero who shows his superiority from the first minutes of the game, and reveals his potential during the battle. He has a good amount of armor and health. The character also boasts agility and speed. It is very difficult to kill him, because it is almost impossible to catch up. Bristleback deals huge damage to enemies using his unique ultimate abilities – protection from the back, quills, slowdown, causing retaliatory damage.

If at the initial stages of the game you do not put up a worthy opponent against Bristleback, then we can assume that the battle is lost. The character is aimed only at victory, confidently goes to it, no matter what.

Weaknesses of Bristleback

Like other players in Dota 2, this hero has his weaknesses. One of the most significant is the minimum amount of mana. Magical power is very important for this character. To strengthen and develop himself, he needs to use skills, and if he does not have enough mana, then Bristleback becomes almost defenseless and very vulnerable.

And the character can not stand frontal attacks. It is almost impossible to harm him by counterattacking on the sides and from the back. Bristleback successfully uses his passive ultimate abilities to protect himself and always gets out of trouble with minimal losses. Bristleback cannot resist silence and hex, therefore, if your main goal is to win the game, then we recommend choosing a hero with such abilities: Lion, Silencer, Doom, Bloodseeker, Death Prophet, Drow Ranger, Grimstroke, Puck, Riki, Skywrath Mage.
