Medusa is one of the hardest carries in Dota 2, which is why she often tends to win most late-game scenarios. So, the best thing that you can do in this situation is to prevent this from happening and try and end the game before it reaches this state. However, if this is obvious that it's not going to work, you have to think of other ways of dealing with this beast.
Having said that, here are a few tips that you can use whenever you have to go late game against this incredibly-annoying Dota 2 hero.
Try to get items that can make Dusa's life hard
We all know how powerful can the hero get and even reach a state where she is incredibly hard to kill. That's why the first important thing is to get the necessary items. Unfortunately, there are many items in Dota 2 that are capable of making her life hard, but there is one that often tends to be underestimated - Diffusal Blade. This item is capable of burning mana on each attack, which can be extremely useful against heroes like Dusa, who rely on the mana in order to survive.
Other good items against this hero are Necronomicon (the same mana burn reason), and a Scythe of Vyse.
Try to avoid going in a 5v5 fight against Dusa's Team
The next thing that you need to be aware of is not engaging into deadly fights against Dusa's squad. She is one of the hard carries that works best when she is with her team. So, going in a 5v5 clash against her and her team is probably not the best idea, especially when she has a lot of items. In order to avoid this, you have to try and either pick-off at least a few heroes before that or lure her away from the team.
Dodge the ultimate
Last, but most definitely not least, you have to do everything in your power to avoid fighting whenever she uses her ultimate. Of course, this is easier said than done, so just always know that whenever she pops it, you have to run.
