Mobile Legends Patch 1.6.80 Advance Server Highlights - Some marksman heroes adjustments

Irithel is not the only marksman hero in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang that is expected to receive changes for the May 2022 Original Server update at the end of the month. In Patch Note 1.6.80 in advance server, three other marksman heroes will be adjusted to make them balance for the current metagame. Here are the highlights of the latest patch featuring the adjustments on the heroes Natan, Bruno, and Beatrix.


1. Natan buff

It's high time for the Reverse-Clone to finally shine! The developers gave a slight boost to Natan's sustained damage during his Ultimate by increasing his Reverse-Clone's inherited attributes.

[Ultimate] (↑)
Reverse Clone's Attribute Inheritance Ratio: 30-35% >> 35-40%

This adjustment seems to be in combination with the new talent system already in advance server. If that will also be implemented in the next update already, it might be huge for Natan and players might really see Natan back as a top marksman hero.


2. Bruno buff

Bruno's laning performance is getting a slight assist with increased damage from his Powerball during Volley Shot.

[Skill 1] (↑)
Base Damage: 120-320 >> 145-320

Bruno's pick rate has also been lower than when he was one of the most viable among marksman heroes. The bulkier metagame also didn't help and thus, this adjustment should help him also be a top marksman hero again especially if the other system and battlefield adjustments in the test server will be applied in the next global server update.


3. Beatrix nerf

The developers further adjusted Beatrix's lethal arsenal to give other heroes a chance to strike back before getting shot down. Renner's Basic Attack damage gets hit with a reduction as Beatrix's Ultimate cooldown is increased.

[Renner - Basic Attack] (↓)
Physical Attack Bonus: 360-535% >> 340-515%

[Renner - Ultimate] (↓)
Cooldown: 24-18s >> 32-24s

[Wesker - Ultimate] (↓)
Cooldown: 24-18s >> 32-24s

Beatrix remains as a top marksman not only in ranked games but also in professional leagues. It is because her weapon Renner even with the reduced early game damage before is still effective in late game. She won't be the overpowered early game hero anymore with the nerfs but she is expected to stay viable.

Aside from these three marksman heroes and Irithel, the only other hero adjustments in the latest patch is another Nana adjustment and a Revamped Akai adjustment. There might still be other advance server patch notes to be released before the official original server update. Some of these adjustments might be implemented while others might be postponed or changed.
