Bad against...[edit]

Arc Warden icon.png
Arc Warden
Meepo icon.png
  • Because Bounty Hunter doesn't have good mobility apart from Shadow Walk icon.png Shadow Walk, he will be caught by Earthbind icon.png Earthbind from Meepo. If he doesn't build Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar, Poof icon.png Poof will kill him. Even if he survives damage from Poof icon.png Poof. Geostrike icon.png Geostrike will not let him escape twice because his HP is less than the clones of Meepo.
Slardar icon.png
Spirit Breaker icon.png
Spirit Breaker
  • Spirit Breaker's Charge of Darkness icon.png Charge of Darkness temporarily provides vision on his target, primarily renders Bounty Hunter's Shadow Walk icon.png Shadow Walk useless during charge.
Visage icon.png
Zeus icon.png
Rubick icon.png
  • Although Rubick is squishy hero and vulnerable for track-kill, he will be most likely able to steal Track icon.png Track and use it several times himself.


  • Tinker minimap icon.png Tinker who always hides after sending his March of the Machines. Makes track impossible because there is no vision of him. Also his low HP may be tasty prey of Tinker until he buys Black King Bar.
  • Bristleback minimap icon.png Bristleback's Viscous Nasal Goo icon.png Viscous Nasal Goo can catch Bounty Hunter. Warpath icon.png Warpath and Quill Spray icon.png Quill Spray can defeat him in short times due to his small HP pool when compared to Bristleback's.
  • Slark minimap icon.png Slark has higher mobility than BH. If Slark has True Sight and BH doesn't have Black King Bar. Pounce will shut him down completely. One more reason, Dark Pact removes Track.
  • Night Stalker minimap icon.png Night Stalker's Silence at night prevents Shadow Walk and his Void will make Phase Boots useless. If Balanar has True Sight, he can shutdown BH's sneak kill.
  • Heroes that are naturally hard to gank, ranging from beefy tanks like Abaddon and Wraith King to heroes with quick escape mechanisms like Anti-Mage and Storm Spirit are also undesirable targets for a lone, roaming Bounty Hunter to scout out and initiate on.


Good against...[edit]

Ancient Apparition icon.png
Ancient Apparition
  • Ancient Apparition is slow and squishy making him a prime target.
Clinkz icon.png
  • Track icon.png Track reveals Clinkz during his Skeleton Walk icon.png Skeleton Walk to Bounty Hunter and his team.
  • Before he get's his Death Pact icon.png Death Pact at level 6, Clinkz is pretty squishy making him a good ganking target, if you bring detection against his Skeleton Walk icon.png Skeleton Walk.
Crystal Maiden icon.png
Crystal Maiden
  • She has very low health and is extremely slow, making her an easy target for Bounty Hunter.
Enigma icon.png
Nyx Assassin icon.png
Nyx Assassin
  • Nyx Assassin wants to start tanking as soon as he gets his Vendetta icon.png Vendetta. Keeping him Track icon.png Tracked prevents him from ganking, and thus from doing his job in the game.
  • Nyx Assassin has a lot of armor and health regen, making the nuke damage from Shuriken Toss icon.png Shuriken Toss very good against him.
Riki icon.png
Shadow Fiend icon.png
Shadow Fiend
Weaver icon.png
Monkey King icon.png
Monkey King


  • Heroes that rely on Invisibility (Shadow Blade icon.png Shadow Blade, Silver Edge icon.png Silver Edge, Glimmer Cape icon.png Glimmer Cape or heroes with an invisibility skill) can make significant targets for Bounty Hunter.
  • Heroes that want to start in the jungle (Enigma minimap icon.png Enigma, Chen minimap icon.png Chen, …).
  • Fragile Heroes can be priority targets since their Low HP can be dealt with high nuke damage.
  • Heroes with low mobility can make secondary priority targets, since Jinada icon.png Jinada is a movement speed disable. Bounty Hunter can really gain the advantage for his allies.
  • Track icon.png Track is good for breaking enemy Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere core hero like Medusa minimap icon.png Medusa, Weaver minimap icon.png Weaver, Puck minimap icon.png Puck, ….

Works well with...[edit]

Bloodseeker icon.png
  • Thirst icon.png Thirst allows Bounty Hunter to find and kill low HP heroes.
Invoker icon.png
Nature's Prophet icon.png
Nature's Prophet
  • When a Track icon.png Tracked hero tries to run away, Natures Prophet can use his Teleportation icon.png Teleportation to cut off their way.
Spectre icon.png
  • Spectre is able to use Haunt icon.png Haunt to appear next to any target that is Track icon.png Tracked.
  • Track icon.png Track will help accelerate Spectre's farm by giving her extra gold.
Zeus icon.png


  • Heroes with global presence such as Spirit Breaker, Spectre and Nature's Prophet are excellent heroes to accompany Bounty Hunter with ganks. Lifestealer can also jump into Bounty Hunter with Infest to assist with Track kills.
  • Additionally, cores with strong early game presence such as Phantom Assassin and Juggernaut can snowball harder as they can join the fray earlier and start helping with Track kills.
