Valkyrie Descent, her ultimate ability, grants her an immense shield and extra physical attack. Additionally, her basic attacks become ranged and deal splash damage.

Still, she can be punished by heroes who excel in head-to-head battles. If you find yourself up against her, pick one of these strong counters to defeat her.

Three counters to Freya in Mobile Legends


Wanwan is an agile marksman who can easily evade Freya’s attacks through her Tiger Pace passive. She can also remove her crowd control abilities using Needles in Flowers.

When she initiates on you with Leap of Faith, quickly trigger Needles in Flowers then throw Swallow’s Path to stun her and expose her weak points. Hit her weaknesses with basic attacks to activate Crossbow of Tang.

She might have the advantage in the early game, but having two core items such as Corrosion Scythe and Demon Hunter Sword should tip the scales in your favor. Also, buy Dominance Ice to weaken her shield and attack speed.


Esmeralda is dreaded by heroes who possess shield gain effects, including Freya. She can steal the shield of nearby enemies, while the damage she deals ignores all shield effects.

When you’re dueling against her, always cast the Frostmoon Shield-Stardust Dance combo and use basic attacks in between. You can use Falling Starmoon to initiate or chase her down if she attempts to escape.
