When it comes to S-tier tanks, Jawhead has been a priority at the recent M2 World Championship and the ONE Esports MPL Invitational because he is able to cause a lot of disruption on the battlefield.
In this Mobile Legends: Bang Bang meta where disruption is an effective playstyle, having tanks like Jawhead is very useful. The task of the tank, especially, is to disturb the enemy jungle. Jawhead’s second skill Ejector can delay your opponent in finishing off his buff as he can easily reset the buff with his throw.
So what is the best way to respond after your opponent chooses Jawhead? These three heroes who are considered to be very useful:
Even though she’s one of the assassins that’s rarely picked, Karina could potentially cause a lot of trouble for Jawhead. Karina’s passive, Combo Hit, allows her to deal extra true damage on every third attack, equivalent to 13 percent of the enemy’s lost HP.
This means that the lower the enemy’s HP, the most damage Karina can do. Even a tank like Jawhead can be shredded thanks to her true damage application.
Valir is a mage who has a combination of high early game damage with excellent crowd control. He can be a bother to the enemy line up and cause some serious trouble.
While Valir’s burst damage isn’t as painful as other mages, he’s still a great support, especially when Jawhead is on the enemy team. His second skill, Searing Torrent, can knock enemies back. This keeps tanks like Jawhead at an arm’s length, preventing them from coming close for initiation. Moreover, his passive, Ashing, allows him to stun opponents, further reducing the aggressiveness of Jawhead.
Tigreal is a tank who is used to straight up counter Jawhead due to his crowd control effects.
Jawhead likes to stick to a single target when he initiates. Tigreal’s second skill, Sacred Hammer, allows him to charge into Jawhead and knock him up twice at the maximum.
Utilizing his ultimate, Implosion, Tigreal pulls surrounding enemies to himself, forcing them to stick to him, and stuns them for a short duration. As such, Jawhead won’t be able to move, and is again prevented from finding a pick off the backline.
