If you want to master playing Badang in Mobile Legends, here’s a complete ONE Esports guide that covers recommended emblems, battle spell, best builds, and skill combinations.

Badang’s skills in Mobile Legends

Passive – Chivalry Fist

After every four basic attacks, Badang’s next basic attack deals extra physical damage to enemies hit and knocks them back. Enemies that are knocked into obstacles will be stunned.

First Wind generated by his skills can also trigger this effect.

  • Chivalry Fist can trigger basic attack effects and benefits from physical lifesteal items, so it’s highly recommended that you buy Demon Hunter Sword and Corrosion Scythe.
  • Golden Staff can’t trigger the skill’s effects twice, but still provides him with a lot of attack speed to proc it as much as possible.
  • This can be activated by Fist Wind and Fist Crack. You can stack this with basic attacks first before using the skills.
  • With its knockback and stun effects, you can interrupt certain skills and blink or charge abilities.

First skill – Fist Wind

Badang unleashes a gust of Fist Wind in the target direction, dealing physical damage to enemies hit, slowing them, and knocking them back.

  • The Fist Wind explodes upon hitting an obstacle, dealing damage to nearby enemies. However, this only explodes once even if passing through multiple obstacles.
  • This can trigger attack effects and grants him one stack of Chivalry Fist, whether he hits an enemy or not. So, don’t hesitate to use this often.
  • He stores up to two charges of this skill, and restores a charge every several seconds.
  • As this is his farming and poking tool, prioritize maxing out this skill first.

Second skill – Fist Break

Badang dashes in the target direction, dealing physical damage to enemies in his path while gaining a shield that lasts for a few seconds.

He stops immediately upon hitting an enemy hero, slightly knocking them back while creating an obstacle that lasts for several seconds behind them. Enemies hit by the obstacle receive damage.

  • Using this skill again will remove the obstacle.
  • Its cooldown remains the same even if he creates a wall.
  • He will only create an obstacle if he encounters heroes on his way. As such, he will pass through Guinevere‘s illusion, Sun‘s Dopplegangers, and Hanzo‘s original body when Kinjutsu Pinnacle is active.
  • You can use this to dash over walls, making it a great tool for escaping as well.

Ultimate – Fist Crack

Badang throws a flurry of punches in the target direction, dealing physical damage to enemies hit multiple times. The Fist Wind generated by the punches will explode upon hitting an obstacle, dealing damage to nearby enemies.

He is immune to control effects for the duration.

  • Similar to Chivalry Fist and Fist Wind, Fist Crack can trigger attack effects.
  • This skill can only be cancelled or interrupted by suppression, which Kaja, Franco, and Barats possess in their ultimates. Make sure to use this once the enemies have spent their suppress abilities.
  • Using Flicker will not cancel this skill. You can use it to reposition and hit your intended target.

Easy combos to learn

In the laning phase, use Fist Wind to pressure your opponent and farm the minion waves. Try to trap your enemy with Fist Break and hit him with basic attacks to proc Chivalry Fist.

When you reach level four and get Fist Crack, you can unleash the combo. However, you may need two core items to guarantee a kill when the enemy has full HP.

Hide in the bush first and wait for the target to come close. Use Fist Break to hold him in place then cast Fist Crack. Finish him off with Fist Wind or basic attacks.

You can also use Flicker to cut the gap before executing the skill combo. When selecting targets, always go for squishy enemies, such as mages, assassins, or marksmen.
