Bad against...[edit]

Anti-Mage icon.png
  • Mana Break makes Gyrocopter, who has low mana pool, unable to use his abilities that most of his damage output depends on.
  • Counterspell negates magical damages from Gyrocopter and it can also reflect Homing Missile back to himself.
  • Anti-Mage can easily escape from Gyrocopter's attack range and Call Down with Blink.
Arc Warden icon.png
  • Magnetic Field evades most of Gyrocopter's attacks.
  • Necronomicon 1 icon.png Necronomicon can kill Gyrocopter with the summons. In addition, Last Will might activate if the Necronomicon Warrior gets killed through Flak Cannon or Call Down.
Huskar icon.png
  • Life Break and Burning Spear usually kills Gyrocopter before he can do much damage to Huskar.
  • Inner Fire applies a disarm on all enemies, which can be a hindrance to Gyrocopter.
Faceless Void icon.png
  • Time Walk makes it hard for Gyrocopter to pin down Faceless Void. With Backtrack it also negates most of his attacks.
  • Time Dilation will prevent Gyrocopter from using his cooldown spells.
Juggernaut icon.png
Lina icon.png
  • Laguna Blade ends Gyrocopter very quickly in the early to mid game.
Lifestealer icon.png
  • Rage ignores all of Gyrocopter's magical attacks.
  • Open Wounds makes it hard for Gyrocopter to get away.

Queen of Pain icon.png
  • Blink makes it hard for Gyrocopter to pin down Queen of Pain.
  • Sonic Wave is very effective at ganking Gyrocopter in the early game.
Timbersaw icon.png

Others[edit]

Good against...[edit]

Meepo icon.png
  • Flak Cannon and Call Down will shred Meepo's clones.

  • Flak Cannon rips through Tombstone's zombies.
Phantom Lancer icon.png
  • Flak Cannon destroys Phantom Lancer's illusions very quickly.
Chaos Knight icon.png
  • Flak Cannon destroys Chaos Knight's illusions very quickly.

  • Flak Cannon destroys Terrorblade's illusions very quickly.

Others[edit]

  • Heroes that depend on illusions fare badly against Gyrocopter's area attacks.
  • Heroes that relies on armor or other type of physical damage negation are easy for Gyrocopter to take down during the early game with his magical damage: Axe minimap icon.png Axe, Dragon Knight minimap icon.png Dragon Knight, Sven minimap icon.png Sven.

Works well with...[edit]

Bloodseeker icon.png
  • Bloodrage on Gyrocopter buffs his damage output with Flak Cannon attacks and Call Down, dealing massive damage in teamfights, as well as healing him if he kills a hero in the process.

Earthshaker icon.png
  • Echo Slam and Earthshaker's many stuns help Gyrocopter land his attacks.
Enigma icon.png
  • Black Hole helps Gyrocopter land his Flak Cannon attacks and Call Down.
Magnus icon.png
Morphling icon.png
  • Morphling with Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter can Morph his ally Gyrocopter and Morphling activating Flak Cannon will deal huge damage in area since he already got huge base damage.
Rubick icon.png
  • Telekinesis's stun and throwback helps Gyrocopter take down enemies with Rocket Barrage during the early game.
Warlock icon.png
  • Fatal Bonds synergizes with Flak Cannon and Call Down where affected units will share the damage, hence improving the amount of damage that Gyrocopter can dish out.
  • Upheaval slows down enemies, keeping them in range of Flak Cannon attacks and Call Down.

Others[edit]

Items[edit]
