Clint has three active skills and a passive skill like all the other heroes in-game. In this Mobile Legends guide, we will also talk about the skills to use in certain scenarios as well as skill combos to be able to play Clint to his utmost potential.
Passive – Double Shot (Burst, Buff)
Whenever Clint casts a skill the next basic attack will deal 100+(120% of Total Physical Attack) amount of Physical Damage to a line of enemies. Additionally, Extra Physical Attack can take effects like True damage, Critical damage.

Mana – 50 at all levels
In a small amount of time, Clint’s first skill can shoot 5 bullets rapidly in a fan-shaped area. Each bullet can deal 250/280/310/340/370/400 ( +80% of Total Physical Attack ) amount of total Physical Attack. If the bullets hit the same enemy multiple times, damage dealt with that enemy will be reduced from the Second bullet.
Skill 2 – Trapping Recoil (Blink, CC)
CD – 10.0/9.6/9.2/8.8/8.4/8.0
Mana – 65/75/85/95/105/115
Upon using this skill Clint can throw a trap net in a particular direction and also move back at the same time. This trap can deal 140/160/180/200/220/240 (+30% of Total Physical Attack ) ( +150% of Total Magic Power ) amount of Physical Damage. Successfully hitting an enemy can immobilize it for 1.2s and reduce the skill’s cooldown by 40%.
Ultimate Skill – Grenade Bombardment (AoE, Slow, Burst)
Recharging Time – 12/11/10
Mana – 50/55/60
Clint can launch the grenade in the chosen direction by casting this skill. The grenade then will explode after hitting an enemy, slowing them down by 25% for a short time and dealing 280/340/400 ( +100% of Total Physical Attack ) amount of Physical Damage. Clint can restore up to 5 of these grenades and though this skill doesn’t have CD, 1 grenade can be restored every 12/11/10s.
Skill-up method for Clint
Max out the Quick Draw first. Take Trapping Recoil accordingly. Upgrade Grenade Bombardment whenever available.
Best Emblem set and Spells for Clint in Mobile Legends
Custom Assassin emblem is best for Clint. It will provide both extra Movement Speed as well as Physical Penetration.

- Agility (+3)
- Invasion (+3)
- High and Dry
You can use the Custom Marksman emblem for Clint too. It can boost Clint’s overall attack as this emblem solely focuses on Critical damage boost. So try these emblems and find what suits you best.
- Fatal (+3)

Though Clint’s 2nd skill provides him a slide dash, we highly recommend Flicker as it can get you out of critical situations. You can use Aegis also according to the game line-up or go for Retribution in the case of jungler Clint.

Mobile Legends Clint Gameplay Tips
As most other marksmen Clint also lacks damage in the early game and is also very vulnerable to enemy assassins. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Clint guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.
Go to the gold lane and focus on farming in the lane. Unlock your first skill as it will help to clear the lane quickly. Be cautious about the enemy in your lane and try not to get killed in the early phase. If turtle spawns in your lane be sure to gank for turtle with your team. Always stay behind your tank and play safe. Focus on destroying turret whenever have a chance, it will give you farm and also provide an advantage on map control.
At this stage, you have 2/3 items depending upon your farm efficiency. Now you can gank frequently as you can deal a decent amount of damage. Be sure to use your skill 2 to trap enemies and use that Immortality whether to attack or escape from a tough situation. Be sure to check you have 5 stacks of your grenades before jumping into the battlefield.
After getting all items you can deal a ton of damage so be sure not to stay idle at your lane and rotate frequently to help your team in ganks. You can play a bit aggressively, try to target backline enemies by going sideways and find loopholes in team fights. Check your mini-map to stay out of reach of the enemy assassin.
Remember to use your basic attack every time after using a skill to take maximum advantage of Clint’s passive damage. Spam your attack frequently as by the late game all skills have a comparatively lower cooldown. You only need to save your 2nd skill and use it if necessary as it can be helpful in critical situations.
|Heroes that counter Clint||Heroes Clint can counter|
Clint falls short and can be easily countered by most assassins, and most mobile fighters can counter Clint as well. On the other hand, Clint can counter most of the marksman heroes, and additionally using his 2nd skill Clint can counter heroes that have only one dash skill.
After introducing new marksman heroes, Clint got in the back section of everyone’s choice. Thanks to Moonton giving Clint a huge buff that he makes a comeback in-game. Blessed with huge Attack damage of his passive and low CD skills, Clint can break chaos on the battlefield. But like any other Marksman, he too has to be cautious against the enemy assassin.
Clint is a skill-dependent Marksman, so Position and Aim mastering these two can make you a better Clint in no time. And then shred your enemies in Clint’s cool cowboy way. An excellent pick for rank games, Clint is definitely a good pick for the current meta. These tips will surely help you to guide easy wins with Clint in Mobile Legends.
