Dota 2 Gyrocopter Guide – Farm More Gold using Rocket Barrage

You can easily farm more gold in Dota 2 matches with Gyrocopter using Rocket Barrage. 

Farming gold is a top priority for most players in Dota 2. You can farm gold by killing enemy creeps in any of the lanes. Professional players tend to farm their gold by hitting creeps in neutral camps around the map. You can also earn more gold in games by destroying enemy heroes throughout the game to increase your kill streaks. 

Carry heroes, such as, Chaos Knight, Lifestealer, and Gyrocopter need to focus on increasing their gold per minute (GPM) to complete their core items. These items can include Butterfly, Satanic, Eye of Skadi, and other items that can be used to mitigate enemy heroes and creeps in every game. 

Take a look at how you can farm more gold using Rocket Barrage while playing Gyrocopter in Dota 2. 

Gyrocopter – Farm More Gold using Rocket Barrage

Gyrocopter is a ranged hero with destructive abilities that can be used to earn more gold in the game. The Agility hero can start the match with 640 health and 327 mana, providing plenty of resources to Gyrocopter for casting his spells in lanes. 

The ranged hero has a high projectile speed of 3000, letting Gyrocopter nuke enemy creeps in lanes with his abilities. Gyrocopter has a base Agility of 26 and gains up to 3.3 Agility per level. He has a base armor of 6.3 that helps reduce the amount of damage taken by Gyrocopter from incoming attacks while farming for gold.

Rocket Barrage is an ability that can be used by Gyrocopter to nuke enemy units. You can use Rocket Barrage to kill enemy creeps and vanquish enemy heroes in Dota 2 matches. Rocket Barrage releases up to 10 rockets per second that deal up to 24 damage to enemy units around Gyrocopter in a radius of 400.
