Skill Analysis

Barats is a hero with the common four skill sets of one passive and three actives. In this Barats guide, let’s see what his abilities are in Mobile Legends, and when you can use which skill to get the best out of him.

Passive – I Am Big (Buff)


This is the important thing for Barats, whenever his skill hits a target, he will gain a passive stack if it hits multiple targets then he will also get multiple stacks. Each of his stacks helps him to grow (Big Boy) and his physical and magical defence will increase by 5 pts. This passive can reach up to 25 stacks and it lasts for 12 seconds. Hitting targets with skills will reset the time. Each of his stacks also grants him 3% resilience. At max stacks, he will have 75% resilience, this resilience will make a 2-second stun (any CC) last for only 0.5 sec.

When Barats passive reaches 16 stacks, his basic attack will deal high damage and slow down the enemy for 0.2 sec. Remember if you were unable to hit enemies in the past 12 seconds you will return to your original state.

Skill 1 – So-called Teamwork (AoE)

CD- 6/5.7/5.4/5.1/4.8/4.5

skill 1

This skill can damage enemies in a fan-shaped area, and throws ignited oil while dealing 60 / 80 / 100 / 120 / 140 / 160 amount of physical damage. After a while, it deals with damage again. This skill can slow down the enemies by 30% for 1 second. The area of effect of So-Called Teamwork will increase when Robust reaches 6, 11, 16, and 21 stacks.

Skill 2 – Missile Expert (CC)

CD- 11/10.4/9.8/9.2/8.6/8

skill 2

He launches 2 backfired missiles to deal 200 / 230 / 260 / 290 / 320 / 350 amount of physical damage to enemies in a straight line. After casting this skill, it will push enemies and stun them in the path after a short delay. One can shorten the length of the skill and the trick part- using this skill against a wall will stun the targets. Note that this skill only benefits 30% of Barat’s Spell Vamp.

Skill 3 – Detona’s Welcome (CC, AoE)

CD- 42/36/30

skill 3

Barats will devour a target, initiating a 1.5-second waiting period before stunning the target and suppressing it for 1 second. He will spit the target out in a designated direction on 3.5 yards and deal 120 / 160 / 200 damage. You can not move while using this skill, but you can use your movement speed wheel to choose the spit direction. Aiming this skill against a wall or on other enemies will stun them for 1 sec and deal an additional 150 / 175 / 200 / 225 / 250 physical damage. When he uses this skill he will be immune to CC (stun, knock up, etc) effects.

The problem is that he needs 1.5 seconds to complete his ultimate so if the enemy leaves the ulti range before he devours, this skill will be cancelled. When his stacks reach 6,11,16,21 the damage of this skill will be increased by 25%. After unlocking skill 3, he will get 5 stacks immediately when he respawns. At level 2 ultimate he will get 10 stacks and at level 3 ulti he will get 15 stacks respectively, whenever he respawns.

Skill-up Method for Barats

Players can max out Skill 1 first followed by Skill 2 and Ultimate, whenever available.
