In this ONE Esports guide, we will dive deeper into his abilities, strategies, and the best build to maximize her potential.

Chip’s skills in Mobile Legends

Passive – Snack Time!

Chip starts eating potato chips when out of combat, regenerating HP after finishing a whole bag (requires five bites). After eating a bag of chips, Chip cannot eat again for five seconds.

  • This passive ability proves invaluable in reducing the need for frequent returns to base. When his health is low, players can retreat to a secure position and allow Snack Time’s gradual healing to take effect.
  • While not as swift as regenerating health at the base, this approach offers several advantages. You’ll have more time to gank lanes and invade the enemy jungle.

Skill 1 – Crash Course

Chip rams his hovercraft into the ground, dealing area-of-effect damage and applying Chip’s Mark.

  • Crash Course amplifies the reach of his basic attacks, allowing him to strike foes from a greater distance.
  • Utilize Crash Course to maximize the shield generated based on the number of heroes impacted. Targeting multiple enemies simultaneously enhances his durability significantly. Striking all five opponents yields a substantial shield boost.
  • The ability to mark multiple enemies simultaneously makes it an invaluable tool for initiating team fights. Consequently, Crash Course benefits greatly from prioritizing tanky item builds to withstand sustained engagements.

Skill 2 – Overtime

Chip rushes forward, gaining extra movement speed, enhancing the next basic attack to knock back enemies.

  • This skill requires time to reach maximum speed and can only be sustained for a limited duration. Therefore, it’s crucial to activate the skill judiciously by considering the distance required to execute successful ganks.
  • A highly effective strategy with this skill involves flanking enemies in the lane and pushing them back toward your tower. Follow up with Crash Course, then a basic attack to stun the target, allowing the tower to inflict significant damage.
  • Additionally, this skill proves invaluable for escaping enemies due to its movement speed boost.

Ultimate – Shortcut

Chip drops the main portal on an enemy hero and creates connecting portals near allied heroes and behind the allied base, allowing allies and enemy heroes to teleport to and from the portals.

  • Enemies can destroy the portal, so avoid placing it when there are two or more damage dealers around who can dismantle it.
  • The main and connecting portals remain active for 10 seconds, providing ample time for you and your teammates to enter, secure victory in the team fight, and return to their starting positions.
  • Allies within an eight-unit radius of Chip do not benefit from the portal effect.
  • Allies receive notifications whenever a portal is created, eliminating the need for you to manually inform them via chat whenever you activate the skill.

Special skill – Why Walk?

Chip has four beacons on the map which he can teleport to and from.

  • This skill enables seamless teleportation to four beacons around the map, but it comes with a considerably long cooldown.
  • To make the most of it, communicate with your teammates on your destination to ensure that visiting other lanes yields fruitful results, ideally resulting in one or two kills.
