Snapfire quickly became one of the most popular heroes after it was released in the Outlanders Update. Now, a few months later in patch 7.24 Snapfire is the most picked support hero, which is expected, considering his skill set. This hero deals tons of damage has a reliable escape mechanism and most importantly - he is super tanky, especially for a hero his size. As a result, more and more people are picking Snapfire on a daily basis, which is why it's important to see a couple of ways in which you can try to nullify the impact of this hero.
Don't stack up
One of Snapfire's strongest weapon is her ultimate. Whether you like it not, it is capable of doing some serious damage, especially if she hits you a couple of times with it. However, this is easier said than done, especially if you're cautious and you know what you're doing. As long as you're not stacking for no reason, dodging it shouldn't really be a problem.
Always try to kill her first
Similar to any other support hero, one of the best ways of dealing with Snapfire is if you kill the hero first. Nevertheless, this can be a pretty hard thing to do because the hero tends to be very tanky, especially once she gets a couple of items. However, if you somehow manage to do it, your team-fight will be a lot easier because there will be no one to interfere with its stuns, slows, and tons of damage.
Dodge the stun at all cost
Last, but definitely not least, you have to try and dodge the stun at all costs, especially when things are starting to get scary. This is not that hard to do because there is an animation associated with the use of the skill and then the target that leaps forward. If you manage to dodge that, you will be able to neglect a lot of the incoming damage, so definitely try to do it.
