Dota 2 Muerta Guide – Make Foes Retreat with Dead Shot

You can play as the new hero Muerta to make your foes retreat back to their base using Dead Shot in Dota 2. 

People are rallying up online to defeat their opponents in Dota 2 to gain victory over their competitors. Esports teams from every corner of the world are coming together to fight professional gamers to earn rewards. The Lima Major has just reached its finale and the world cheered on as Gaimin Gladiators walked away with earnings of up to $200,000 by placing first in the South American tournament.  

Dota 2 has kept the momentum from the Lima Major going by introducing a brand new hero to the roster with the 7.32 E update. The recently released patch for the strategy game has opened its doors to Muerta, a gunslinger who shoots enemy heroes from a distance using pistols that make her foes pay during battles. 

The latest 7.32 E update has also provided a fun and exciting mini-game for its active community of gamers. The Dead Reckoning mini-game can be played out in each match by assisting or killing specific heroes from the enemy team. You can gain 1 point for each assist and 2 points for any kills that you can perform against the assigned enemy hero. These points can be used to unlock the Dead Reckoning Chest and Dead Reckoning Keys for amazing rewards. 

Take a look at how you can use Dead Shot to make foes retreat from team fights while playing Muerta in the massively multiplayer game. 

Muerta – Make Foes Retreat with Dead Shot

Muerta makes her enemies retreat to their base in the mid lane using Dead Shot

Muerta is an Intelligence hero in Dota 2. The newly introduced hero can nuke enemy heroes in lanes to prevent them from farming gold. People can use her skills to distract enemy heroes and silence her opponents by letting Muerta cast multiple spells in lanes to fight her foes. 

The ranged hero has 580 health and 363 mana at the start of the game. You can hit enemy units from a distance of 575 with Muerta’s ranged attacks. Muerta has a base Intelligence of 24 and gains up to 3.3 Intelligence per level. The carry hero can farm more gold in a lane by using Dead Shot to deal damage to multiple
enemy units

Dead Shot is a magical spell that can be cast by Muerta to shoot a bullet that can bounce off of nearby trees and enemy heroes. Any enemy units that Dead Shot comes into contact with are dealt up to 300 damage and have their movement speed slowed by 100% for 0.5 seconds. Muerta can make a Dead Shot ricochet off of enemy heroes to inflict Fear on them, making them retreat to their base for up to 2 seconds. Dead Shot has a cooldown of 10 seconds and consumes 160 mana to be used per cast. 

Muerta can cast several instances of Dead Shot during team fights to make enemy heroes lose their ability to focus on your allies while attacking them. Dead Shot can instill Fear on her foes between her attacks to disperse the enemy team throughout the game. It can be fun to watch Meurta launch a Dead Shot that can ricochet from trees to perform stunning combos with her teammates in Dota 2. 

The Intelligence hero has a high projectile speed of 3000, letting Muerta hurl Dead Shots with increased accuracy to drain the health of her opponents. You can play Muerta to slow down carry heroes on their hunt to save allies from dying. The extended cast range of Dead Shot allows Muerta to take incredible kills without being detected by her enemies. You can also gain an additional charge for Dead Shot at level 20.

Muerta can head mid to level up faster during the game. It can take a few games before you get a chance to choose Muerta in Dota 2 as the demand for the Intelligence hero is growing by the minute in online matches. Playing Muerta in the mid lane will let you max out Dead Shot before the first 10 minutes of the game, granting Muerta a significant amount of damage against enemy heroes around the map. You can deal up to 400 damage to destroy enemy heroes using Dead Shot by unlocking the upgrade for Muerta at level 10. 

The carry hero can cast The Calling during battles to summon up to 4 revenants to silence enemy heroes. Any enemy unit that passes through these revenants created by Muerta using The Calling will be silenced for up to 3.5 seconds, preventing them from using magical spells against Muerta and her allies. The Calling can also be used to slow the movement speed of enemy heroes by 30% and reduce their attack speed by 60.

Revenants summoned by the Intelligence hero by casting The Calling can last for up to 10 seconds. You can summon an additional 2 revenants by using The Calling after reaching level 20 with Muerta. The Calling has a cooldown of 30 seconds and consumes 225 mana to be used in the game. 

The ranged hero can attack a second target by leveling up Gunslinger for Muerta. The passive ability, Gunslinger, grants a 50% chance to hit an additional enemy unit with each physical attack shot by Muerta. These attacks can also pierce spell immunity. You can increase the chance of triggering Gunslinger by 20% at level 25 through the Talent Tree while playing Muerta.

You can become immune to all physical attacks that are targeted at Muerta for up to 8 seconds by casting her ulti, Pierce The Veil, during team fights.

Pierce The Veil has a cooldown of 45 seconds and requires 350 mana per cast.
