Snapfire is a ranged strength hero armed with a wide array of firepower, riding into battle on her dragon toad Mortimer. Her powerful Scattershot blasts foes who get too close, while her mounted turret increases her range, allowing her to unleash a barrage of rapid fire attacks. Snapfire's coveted Firesnap Cookies give allies a boost, allowing them to leap a short distance. The cookies aren't her only secret weapon, her dragon toad has the ultimate nasty surprise for the enemy team—a long range artillery barrage of Mortimer Kisses that coat the map in searing lava.


Snapfire minimap icon.pngBeatrix, the Snapfire
▶️ "I'm Beadie. N' this here's Mortimer. Nothing fancy. Just here to kill some time and if we can manage, some people."
Beatrix Snapfire and her dragon toad Mortimer are a welcome sight to the ragged folk who scratch out lives along the desert routes and oases scattered throughout Nanarak, the rain-forsaken gateway to the Outlands.

As well known for her unrivaled skills as a weaponsmith as for dispensing wisdom, mirth, and the meanest firesnap cookies the world has ever seen, Beadie's survived to a ripe old age in a young keen's trade by being quick with her wits and even quicker with her guns.

Indeed, the Outlands are littered with the bones of bandits and ne'er-do-wells who thought to take advantage of her small stature and propensity for kindness.


Scatterblast's custom targeting indicator.

Scatterblast icon.png
Snapfire unloads with a wide blast that damages and slows enemies in a cone. Enemies caught at point-blank range take an extra 50% damage.

Debuff Scatterblast Slow: Dispellable with any dispel.
Debuff Scatterblast Disarm: Undispellable.
A favorite from her collection, Beadie crafted Ol' Rackatee as her first line of defense when she ventured into the Outlands.


  • Scatterblast travels at a speed of 3000, taking 0.73 seconds to travel the full distance.
  • Can hit units up to 1200 range away (travel distance + end radius).
  • The complete area is shaped like a cone.
  • Deals 120/225/330/435 (Talent 210/315/420/525) damage to units within point-blank range.
  • Scatterblast first applies the damage, then the movement speed slow (Talent then the disarm).
  • Leveling up Scatterblast, or choosing the damage increasing talent does not affect the damage of an already launched instance of Scatterblast.

Firesnap Cookie icon.png
Allies / Enemies
Snapfire feeds a potent cookie to Mortimer or an ally, causing them to hop a short distance. The hopping unit stuns and damages enemies in the landing zone.
Cast Animation: 0.2+0.57
Cast Range: 700
Self Cast Time: 0.3
Impact Radius: 300
Jump Distance: 450
Impact Damage: 90/160/230/300

Cooldown: 24/21/18/15
Mana: 100
Partially pierces spell immunity. Can be cast on spell immune allies.
Does not affect spell immune enemies.
Buff Firesnap Cookie Short Hop: Undispellable.
Buff Firesnap Cookie Ally Flail Anim: Undispellable.
Debuff Stunned: Dispellable with strong dispels.
With the help of a secret mixture that pairs Beadie's baking skills with her passion for black powder, these battle biscuits pack a punch.


  • The projectile travels at a speed of 1000.
  • Cannot be cast on units that are currently channeling, making it impossible to accidentally cancel an allied channeling spell.
    • If the ally starts channeling after projectile launch, the projectile does nothing upon impact.
    • This includes self-casts.
  • The target jumps range forwards upon projectile impact, 257 range high. While in the air, other units can pass below them.
  • During the jump, the target is fully disabled, unable to move, turn, attack or cast spells or items.
  • Can jump over other units and over impassable terrain.
  • The area damage and stun are applied upon losing the hop buff. This means if the leap gets interrupted, the effects are applied earlier.
  • Firesnap Cookie first applies the damage, then the stun.
  • Destroys trees within the impact area upon landing.
  • Has no cast backswing when cast on self.
  • Choosing the talent that adds the heal immediately updates already launched cookies, making them heal on impact.

Lil' Shredder

Snapfire heats up her mounted turret to rapidly fire 6 fixed-damage attacks. Each attack slows the enemy's attack speed. Provides bonus attack range for the duration.
Cast Animation: 0+0

Does not pierce spell immunity. Debuff persists if placed before spell immunity and when not dispelled.
Buff Lil Shredder Buff: Dispellable with any dispel.
Debuff Lil Shredder Debuff: Dispellable with any dispel.
Beadie constantly tinkers with a design she first dreamed up plotting an exodus from her old gang.


  • Increased Snapfire's attack range to 575/650/725/800, and sets her base attack time to 1.
  • Sets Snapfire's damage to the given values. This means attack damage bonuses and reductions are completely ignored.
    • When the level 20 talent is chosen, her attack damage is no longer set to a fixed value.
  • An attack charge is lost whenever an attack is executed, regardless of outcome. This means missed attacks use up charges as well.
  • The number of charges left is visible on the buff icon.
  • Lil' Shredder uses a single debuff on the target. Following attacks increase its stack count.
    • A number on the icon reveals the amount of stacks. The number is visible to everyone.
    • Since only one debuff is used, each attack resets the duration of the entire stack.
  • This is how much attack speed Lil' Shredder reduces with up to 6 stacks on each level:
    • Level 1: 15/30/45/60/75/90 attack speed slow.
    • Level 2: 20/40/60/80/100/120 attack speed slow.
    • Level 3: 25/50/75/100/125/150 attack speed slow.
    • Level 4: 30/60/90/120/150/180 attack speed slow.
  • The attack speed slow is applied on any attacked target, including buildings and allies.
  • Can deal a total of 210/300/390/480 damage with all 6 attacks (before reductions), considering the level 20 talent is not chosen.
  • The attacks first place the debuff, then apply their own damage.
  • Successive casts do not stack, but refresh the buff instead, resetting the amount of attacks and updating the range bonus.
  • Leveling up Lil' Shredder, or choosing the talent that makes it use regular attack damage, does not update the damage of an already existing instance from a previous cast.
  • When leveling up Lil' Shredder, refreshing the debuff does not update the slow value to the new level.
    • In order to apply the higher value, the debuff must be placed anew.

Mortimer Kisses icon.png
Snapfire's friend launches a barrage of firespit globs over 6 seconds. Globs cause impact damage and create pools of firespit, which slow and apply damage over time. Snapfire has a reduced turn rate for the duration and a minimum launch range of 600. Each glob can be targeted with a right click.
Cast Animation: 0.5+0.73
Cast Range: 3000
Minimum Distance: 600
Maximum Distance: 3000
Impact Radius: 275
Turn Rate in Degrees per Second: 75
Number of Projectiles: 8 (Talent 16)
Impact Damage: 200/300/400

Does not pierce spell immunity. Debuff persists if placed before spell immunity and when not dispelled.
Buff Mortimer Kisses: Undispellable.
Buff Prevent Taunts: Undispellable.
Debuff Magma Burn Slow: Dispellable with any dispel.
Little did Beadie know when she adopted Mortimer, dragon toads--which aren't even toads at all--share more than just a name with their distant draconic cousins.


  • The projectiles have a minimum travel time of 0.8, maximum travel time of 2 seconds, and a projectile speed of 1300.
    • This means up to 1625 range, the speed adapts to lower values, and for distance starting at 2600, the speed adapts to higher values.
  • For better readability, the turn rate during Mortimer Kisses is given as degrees per second, instead of radians per 0.03 seconds.
    • 75 degrees per second equal a turn rate of 0.039.
  • Moritmer Kisses is canceled if Snapfire gets stunned, silenced, cycloned, hexed, slept, feared, or hypnotized.
    • Taunts prevent Snapfire from changing locations for the globs, but do not cancel it.
    • Mortimer Kisses can also be stopped manaully by giving Snapfire any other order besides moving.
  • The location for the globs can be changed with a move order. A move order is given by right-clicking, or by pressing the move hotkey and selecting a target point.
    • Selecting a point outside the minimum/maximum distance, the globs are launched using the minimum/maximum distance towards the targeted direction.
    • Although reducing turn rate a lot while active, the globs are launched where the order was targeted, they are not launched based on facing angle.
  • Snapfire is disarmed during Mortimer Kisses. Attack orders behave like move orders during disarms, so right-clicking an enemy sets a new location as well.
  • The destination for each glob is marked with a red circle indicator, which is visible to allies only.
  • Launches globs in 0.75 (Talent 0.375) second intervals, starting immediately upon cast, resulting in 8 (Talent 16) globs.
  • Each glob deals the impact damage and leaves a laval puddle behind. The puddles last 3 seconds.
    • The puddles apply the debuff on enemies in 0.5 second intervals, starting immediately as they are created, resulting in 6 instances.
    • The debuff lasts 1 seconds, and deals 25/37.5/50 damage in 0.5 second interval, starting immediately upon being placed, resulting in 2 instances.
    • Multiple instances of the debuff do not stack.
  • A single glob can deal a total of 400/600/800 damage, considering impact damage, and standing within the puddle for the full duration.
  • Provides 275 radius flying vision at the current targeted location for the globs, lasting until Mortimer stops launching projectiles.
  • The projectiles provide 500 radius flying vision as they travel. This vision lingers for 3.5 seconds at the impact area.
  • Leveling up the spell does not update the impact damage of already launched globs to the new level.
    • However, the lava puddles are updated to apply the debuff with the new level's value.
    • Already placed debuffs are not updated to the new level.
  • Choosing the slow increasing talent immediately updates all existing puddles to use the new value.
    • However, already placed debuffs are not updated.

Playstyle: The plucky Keen known as Beatrix Snapfire has survived to venerable old age in the harsh deserts of Nanarak, owing to her ingenious craftsmanship, and overwhelming firepower. Mounted on her dragon toad Mortimer, she dispenses Scatterblasts and Firesnap Cookies alike, while shooting down targets with barrages from Lil' Shredder, her mounted turret. For extremely distant enemies, Mortimer serves as Beatrix's artillery, issuing gobs of firespit from his gullet to cover the battlefield in pools of flame.
