Not only is Hayabusa a very fun character to play in the game, he is also very annoying when played well.
Since he was introduced in Mobile Legends several years back, Hayabusa’s character has gone through several rounds of revamps.
In this guide, we will be covering different ways on how players can counter Hayabusa’s presence in the game.
About Hayabusa and his abilities
Not only does Hayabusa have many abilities that allow him to deal high amounts of damage, he is also able to escape from combat very easily — making him a challenging opponent to play against.
In most games, Hayabusa’s role is to scout around, constantly disrupt enemy attacks (poking them and running away), and to pick off lone/weaker heroes (especially those attempting to escape).
While Hayabusa is a fairly easy hero to play, he is hard to master — it takes a lot of practice to become an effective Hayabusa player.
How Hayabusa is Played
This is mainly due to his play style and the fact that he is fairly weak HP-wise.
In fact, if Hayabusa is caught off-guard, he could be taken down very quickly.
The rest of his time will be spent farming and rotating between jungle creeps.
Hayabusa players rely heavily on their ultimate spell, and will attempt to roam around the map after they hit level 4.
How to Counter Hayabusa
The key to countering Hayabusa is to reduce the amount of damage he is able to deal to you.
This can generally be done in 4 ways:
- Having a level advantage over him (he should either be same or lower level than you). These can be done by disrupting his jungling activity early in the game, or to try and out-farm him (usually harder at higher levels).
- Having more defensive gear.
- Always sticking together in a team (so Hayabusa’s ultimate won’t deal as much damage).
- Hunting + killing him early in the game (usually fairly hard, but Hayabusa players can easily be taken down if they engage poorly in team fights).
Hayabusa also has many weaknesses:

Hayabusa players can also be easily taken down when they are on the run (escaping after combat) — coming from the opposite direction will usually leave Hayabusa players with very few escape alternatives.

The key is to be patient, stay safe, and stick together as a team.
In time, over-eager Hayabusa players will try to ambush the team, and that is your chance to take him down.
