Dota Underlords strategies: сборка Охотников и Воинов ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

The graphics will help us explain one of the most popular Dota Underlords strategies: Hunter-Warriors. We also have a similar guide explaining various Knight builds.

What this build has: 

  • Hunters deal sustained damage throughout the fight.
  • Warriors provide a frontline with decent Crowd Control.
  • Scaled pocket provides magic resistance.
  • Heartless pocket softens up the enemy units.

Let's take a closer look at all of this.


The Hunters synergy gives all the members of this alliance a chance to deal additional attacks, which amplifies the overall damage and makes units charge mana faster. You can counter resilient boards, based on Knights and Warriors. 

  • Level 1 (3 heroes) — Hunters have a 20% chance of quickly performing 2 attacks.
  • Level 2 (6 heroes) — Hunters have a 35% chance of quickly performing 2 attacks.

Hunter Alliance heroes:

  • Beastmaster
  • Drow Ranger — also Heartless
  • Medusa — also Scaled
  • Sniper
  • Tidehunter — also Scaled
  • Windranger
  • Mirana 

In this composition, you want to always include the Scaled pair — Tidehunter and Medusa. Aside from the Scaled bonus, both characters are extremely strong. Medusa will be your main damage dealer, while Tidehunter will provide AoE stun. Unfortunately, these are also expensive and rare units.


Warriors alliance provide — additional Armor. 

  • Level 1 (3 heroes) — All Warriors gain +10 Armor.
  • Level 2 (6 heroes) — All Warriors gain +15 Armor.
  • Level 3 (9 heroes) — All Warriors gain +25 Armor.

Warrior heroes:

  • Axe
  • Doom
  • Juggernaut
  • Kunkka
  • Lycan
  • Slardar
  • Tiny
  • Troll Warlord
  • Tusk
  • Pudge — also Heartless

Take another look at the graphics.

These are the heroes you want to combine:

  • Drow Ranger (Hunter and Heartless)
  • Medusa (Hunter and Scaled)
  • Tidehunter (Hunter and Scaled)
  • Mirana (Hunter)
  • Sniper  (Hunter)
  • Windranger (Hunter)
  • Kunkka (Warrior)
  • Pudge (Warrior and Heartless)
  • Doom (Warrior)
