Playing As:[edit | edit source]

  • Lonestar isn't very fast, but has a lot of vertical mobility. Use the additional jump provided by Rocket Boots to confuse enemies and evade their attacks.
  • The Rubber Sleeve upgrade allows Lonestar to attack turrets and enemies from a much safer distance, as long as the turret is currently firing at something else.
  • Lonestar's Incendiary Bomb upgrade has a fire effect that is visible on enemies even when they are stealthed. This is useful against invisibility.
  • You can trap enemies between your bull and terrain or one of your turrets for massive damage. Techno Viking Helmet makes this tactic even deadlier.
  • Bull is very useful for clearing lanes of enemy traps such as Yuri's Mines.
  • Bull can be used as a scouting tool. If you suspect a hide area has an enemy or trap awaiting, send the bull in first so it grants vision to you and your team.
  • Even an unupgraded Bull can be effective at keeping enemies at bay, trapping them against a turret or even doing some early game pushing. This can be particularly useful against enemies that are dangerous up close, such as Leon, Clunk or Skølldir.

Playing With:[edit | edit source]

  • Distracting the enemy team may aid Lonestar in splitpushing turrets in different lanes. Be sure to send him a defend command if you suspect the enemy team is going after him or to call him if you need his help fending off the enemy attackers, though.
  • If Lonestar manages to push enemies into your team with bull, try and follow that up for a kill.
  • When teaming up with Lonestar, aid him in his bull + dynamite push to make it even more effective.

Playing Against:[edit | edit source]

  • Lonestar can jump again mid-air (twice with his boots). Try to keep track of his jumps to attack him once he comes down.
  • Slowing effects reduce both movement speed and jump height. Use them to severely cripple Lonestar's mobility.
  • Rubber Sleeve will make dynamites bounce as high as Lonestar's position the moment he throws them. Use this to predict its pattern and avoid them more easily.
  • Lonestar's Dynamite explode on contact. Be careful when approaching him at melee range, as you may suddenly take more damage than you'd expect.
  • Lonestar's only means of pushing his enemies away is his bull. It's easier to attack him when it is on cooldown.
  • Always keep an eye on the minimap, as Lonestar excels at pushing. If he goes to another lane to kill droids, you might want to follow him to repel the push or chase him off.
