Notes:

  • Double clicking the item casts it on self.
  • Pushes the target at a speed of 1500.
  • The target is not disabled during the push, so it still can cast spells or items, attack and turn during the push.
  • It also means that it does not cancel channeling spells of the target.
    • However, it interrupts the user's channeling spells upon cast, since it is a single target spell. It is not the push itself canceling them.
  • Cannot break Pounce icon.png Pounce​ leash. When casting on a leashed hero, it does not get pushed beyond the leash's max range.
  • Can force units over impassable terrain. Trees within 100 radius around the pushed target get destroyed during the push.


Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This is an overall good and cheap utility item for saving allies and messing up enemy positioning.
  • Force can push units over cliffs and through trees, making it a great chasing or escaping item.
  • It is also good for countering Heroes that can make impassable barriers, such as Earthshaker icon.png Earthshaker​, Clockwerk icon.png Clockwerk​ or Nature's Prophet icon.png Nature's Prophet​.
  • Unlike Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger, the item is not disabled when receiving damage, allowing for both initiation and escape (but the distance is shorter). And it can be upgraded into an hurricane pike even for melee heroes late game to get extra stats compared to the blink dagger.
