  • Modified values: Mana cost, minimum damage, maximum damage (both match) and stun duration
  • Homing Missile's initial speed is 340 and increases by 20 per second.
  • Since there are no enemy heroes, only the towers at the map edge could destroy the missile.

  • The missile is placed 150 range in front of Gyrocopter and starts moving 3 seconds after cast.
  • The crosshair over the target is visible to allies only.

    • The talent also affects the charge replenish time.

Flak Cannon
Flak Cannon icon.png
No Target
Gyrocopter's attacks hit all enemy units in an area around it for a limited number of attacks. Only the main target of attacks will receive attack bonuses such as Critical Strike. Lasts 15 seconds or until the attacks are used.
Cast Animation: 0+0
Search Radius: 600/650/700/750

Cooldown: 30 (With talent: 24)

Buff Flak Cannon: Dispellable with death only.
This newly revamped Gyrocopter has attached enough armaments to assault in a 360 degree radius.


  • Modified values: Search radius.
  • Flak Cannon interrupts Gyrocopter's channeling spells upon cast.
  • Causes Gyrocopter to perform instant attacks on all nearby enemies whenever he launches an attack projectile.
    • This means all projectiles are released at the same time together with the main attack.
    • Therefore, it does not matter whether the primary attack misses or not, the flaks are still released.
    • The flaks have no count limit. All valid nearby targets get attacked.
  • The primary attack target is not affected by Flak Cannon. It is only hit by the primary attack.
  • The projectiles from the instant attacks travel at a speed of 800, and can be disjointed like regular attacks.
  • Unlike most other instant attacks, the ones from Flak Cannon may not proc any attack modifiers or on-hit effects.
    • However, they still count as regular attacks. Damage done by Flak Cannon does not count as spell damage.
    • They are also affected by armor type, and blocked by Damage Block like regular attacks.
    • If Gyrocopter is blinded, the flaks can miss, unless he has True Strike. They can also miss to evasion.
  • Does not target couriers, wards, buildings, invisible units, or units inside the Fog of War in range.
    • However, attacking couriers, wards or buildings still causes flaks to hit all valid targets within the radius.
  • The number of attacks left is visible (to everyone) on the buff icon.

'Bombs away!'


  • Modified values: None.
  • The first missile impacts 2 seconds and the second missile 4 seconds after cast.
  • Provides 300 radius flying vision at the targeted area for 4 seconds after cast.
  • Can deal a total of 300/425/550 damage (before reductions), assuming both missiles hit.
  • The visual areal indicator is visible to allies only, but the sound effects are audible and the missiles visible to everyone.
  • The Side Gunner granted by Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter is not bound to any of Gyrocopter's spells.
    • The Side Gunner performs an instant attack in the set interval. Its target is chosen completely randomly.
    • Since it uses instant attacks, it neither interferes with the regular attacks, nor does it use animations. It also ignores disarms.
    • It does not interfere with any other actions of Gyrocopter either. It still attacks while e.g. stunned or while channeling.
    • Unlike Flak Cannon, the Side Gunner can proc any attack modifier or any on-hit effect like a regular attack.
    • If Gyrocopter is blinded, the gunner can miss, unless he has True Strike. It can also miss to evasion.
    • The Side Gunner uses the same 3000 projectile speed as Gyrocopter's attack.
    • The Side Gunner does not attack when Gyrocopter is hidden, invisible or affected by Break.
    • However, the gunner ignores fade times and fade delays of spells. It only does not attack when fully invisible.
    • The Side Gunner does not attack wards and couriers, but does attack buildings. Only attacks units Gyrocopter has vision over.
