Natan, the Spacetime Walker, has two qualities that make him unique from other heroes in his class.
His Basic Attacks fly like a boomerang, and his ultimate, which shares a resemblance to Claude’s Battle Mirror Image skill, allows him to ramp up his damage and move instantly from point A to point B.

Natan’s skills in Mobile Legends
Passive – Theory Of Everything
Natan gains a stack of Entanglement each time he or his Reverse-Clone hits an enemy with their skills. Each stack lasts a few seconds and grants extra Attack Speed and Movement Speed.
His basic attack projectiles will return to him after reaching the maximum range, dealing extra magic damage to enemies along the way (inherits a portion of attack effects).
- Read Theory of Everything carefully, for Natan only receives bonus Attack Speed and Movement Speed if he hits an enemy hero, monster, or minions with his skills. This doesn’t count for Basic Attacks.
First skill – Superposition
Natan shoots a dense mass of energy in the target direction, dealing Magic Damage to enemies in its path.
- It’s possible to hit the maximum stacks of Theory Of Everything by recasting Natan’s first skill, Superposition, which is his bread and butter. But to get there, you’re limited by the cooldown of Superposition.
- On average, most team fights will not last that long for Theory of Everything to max out, so focus on dishing out as much damage as possible by weaving your Basic Attacks in between Superposition.
- A linear skill, use Superposition to clear waves effectively.
- And since it is a linear AoE skill, try to hit as many enemies as possible with it during team fights.
Second skill – Interference!
Natan launches a gravitational attractor in the target direction, dealing Magic Damage to enemies in its path and knocking them back.
The attractor detonates upon reaching maximum range, dealing Magic Damage to nearby enemies and knocking them back.
- An immobile marksman hero who doesn’t possess any skill to dash away from enemies, Interference! is your only lifesaver.
- Interference! knocks enemies back, and has two main functions. One, for escape, and two, for crowd-controlling enemy heroes whom you’re chasing after.
- Even though Interference! pushes them away from you, the Movement Speed from your Theory Of Everything passive helps you catch up to knocked-back enemies to finish them off.
Ultimate – Entropy?
Natan summons a Reverse-Clone at a target location six units away that lasts for several seconds, inherits a percentage of his attack attributes (and a portion of his attack effects), and copies his moves and attacks in reverse.
Use Again: Natan switches place with the Reverse-Clone.
Each cast reduces other skills’ remaining cooldowns. The Reverse-Clone will disappear if Natan is too far away, while the cooldown of this skill will be reduced by the remaining duration.
- Think of Reverse-Clone as the Reverse Flash of the DC superhero universe.
- Even though Entropy? summons a marksman clone that’s mechanically similar to Claude’s Battle Mirror Image, the difference is that Entropy? does everything in reverse, and is not locked in a fixed position like Dexter.
- If you cast Entropy? near you, as you move down a lane towards enemies for a kill, your Reverse-Clone will move backward and gets further and further away from Natan. Once you’re out of range, it disappears, and your damage drops significantly.
- The most ideal situation would be to position Entropy? on the other side of the enemies, with the fight taking place right in between Natan and his Reverse-Clone. This won’t happen all the time, however, and it also puts the vulnerable marksman at high risk.
- Entropy’s second function allows Natan to dash toward the Reverse-Clone, which is super helpful if you want to dodge skill shots, or reposition in a fight.
- The Reverse-Clone gives vision, so you can place Entropy? in bushes to check for incoming enemies.
A comprehensive guide on how to play Natan in Mobile Legends
Recommended battle spell
Marksman Natan does not possess any skill that allows him to dash away from enemy heroes, so Flicker is a must.
Even if you manage to cast Interference! successfully, enemy heroes with multiple dashes (and there are many in Mobile Legends), like Paquito and Benedetta can still catch up. This is why Flicker is most valuable for this immobile marksman.
Alternatively, if you want to dish out more damage, select Inspire. It increases your attack speed and provides lifesteal for several seconds.
Natan benefits greatly from the Mage emblem, which grants significant magic power, cooldown reduction, and magic penetration.
Conversely, the Assassin emblem is a great alternative, for it provides substantial adaptive penetration, adaptive attack, and movement speed.

|Physical or magic? Here’s the best build for Natan, MLBB’s most underrated marksman
In the first tier, choose Swift for additional attack speed. In the second tier, select Bargain Hunter to reduce equipment cost. However, if you prefer to play defensively, opt for Tenacity instead.
For your core talent, pick Weakness Finder, which enables you to slow your target’s movement and attack speed.
Natan best build
To maximize Natan’s damage output, prioritize Feather of Heaven for the attack speed bonus before building magic damage items such as Starlium Scythe, Genius Wand, Divine Glaive, and Holy Crystal.
If you find yourself dying frequently in team fights, it’s recommended to replace Starlium Scythe with Immortality or Winter Truncheon.
On the other hand, if you and your team are in a comfortable position, you can consider building Blood Wings for the massive magic damage boost.
- Arcane Boots
- Feather of Heaven
- Genius Wand
- Holy Crystal
- Starlium Scythe
- Divine Glaive
Easy combos to learn
Rated as a high-difficulty marksman, there are no fixed combos for Natan. Instead, you should aim to weave his basic attacks in between skills.
Casting his second skill, Interference! before Superposition guarantees that his first skill hits.
Everything else depends on the marksman player. For a start, up your first skill then head to the Gold Lane during the laning phase.
Besides positioning, the next most important thing is knowing how to position his Reverse-Clone when Entropy? is cast, which takes experience and time to master.
