Dota 2 - Which Heroes work well with Bristleback? ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Bristleback is often that type of Dota 2 heroes that can be regarded as a "one-man army". This probably doesn't come as a surprise because BB is one of the hardest heroes to kill in the game. Thanks to his passive ability, he can tank the entire enemy team while killing them because of his quill spam. 

However, similar to any other Dota 2 hero, there are certain combinations where BB can be a lot stronger than usual. That's why we've decided to list some of the best Dota 2 heroes that you can use alongside Bristleback. Let's dive in.


Omni can be one of the best defensive supports in the game whenever there are no counters against him. That's why it's no surprise that he works very well with Bristleback, which makes the already hard to kill hero nearly immortal. To make things worse for the enemies, both of these heroes have slows, so once they catch someone, escaping is pretty much impossible. Nevertheless, neither of them has a stun, so the target can potentially teleport.

KotL and Bristleback is a combo that's as old as Dota 2 itself. These two heroes work very well together since the days of DotA because KotL allows Bristleback to be able to cast his spells all the time, without having to think about mana, which is really important. KotL and Bristleback are strong on their own but they don't have a stun, which can be an issue during the laning stage.


Grimstroke is also a hero that's pretty good with Bristlebackl because he can use his stun and ultimate very easily, allowing BB to just run over his enemies. However, this combo is not that popular because there are other heroes that work better with Grim.
