Benedetta is one of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang‘s newer heroes, and one that many say is one of the hardest to deal with. Her passive, Elapsed Daytime, allows her to charge in a specified direction with each basic attack.
Her skills are varied, but most of it involves dashing around the battlefield. This is the reason why she is the preferred pick by many players in Mythic – she is very mobile and her abilities pack a lot of punch.
How strong is Benedetta?
Benedetta is not only seen in ranked games but is also a staple pick in competitive play.
In the recently concluded MPL PH, she was the most picked hero in the region with 110 appearances. She also had a stellar 60.91% win rate, making her an ideal pick in a very fast-paced meta.
So how do we counter the Shadow Ranger from wreaking havoc in our ranked games? Here are three heroes that might make your life easier.
Wanwan is essentially the marksman version of Benedetta. She can dash with each basic attack and has the ability that can cancel crowd controls.
With that said, what makes Wanwan a hard matchup is that she has the ability to dodge all of Benedetta’s basic attack and abilities with just her basic attacks alone.
A good Wanwan player is also able to time her Crossbow of Tang so that she only activates it after Benedetta has casted Alecto: Final Blow.
Ling is as equally as annoying as the Shadow Ranger. He can quickly go in and out of a team fight with Finch Poise and can even dodge all of Benedetta’s abilities with the Tempest of Blades-Defiant Sword combo.
It might not be that much of a lopsided affair, but a good Ling player will be able to outmaneuver almost anyone in the game, including Benedetta.
Last but not the least, the hero that every mobile hero hates with a passion – Minsitthar. It will only take one skill, King’s Calling, to disable all of Benedetta’s basic attack and dash abilities.
The Shadow Ranger might have the upper hand in the early game and in 1v1 situations, but Minsitthar will slowly get the lead once both heroes finished their core items.
Once Benedetta gets caught with the ultimate, it’s over and she will either be forced to use her Alecto: Final Blow to get out of the King’s Calling area of effect or try to shamefully walk away without the passive effects of Elapsed Daytime.
