  • Retribution: If one’s team lacks a jungler or assassin, one could opt to go jungle lane after picking the retribution spell.

Mobile Legends Cyclops Gameplay Tips

As discussed before, Cyclops excels at poking enemies with his skills while dealing huge continuous damage to them. 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 Cyclops guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.

Early Game

After unlocking Skill 1, proceed to the mid lane and use the Skill to efficiently clear minion waves, while placing it in such a way it meets both minions and opposing enemy heroes. After attaining lvl 2 and unlocking the Planets Attack Skill, use the skill when enemies are close so the skill would attack and hit enemy heroes rather than minions.

Continuously clear minion waves and be cautious of the enemy jungler who might just be waiting to gank and ambush you in your lane. In the Early Game, it is advisable to stick to farming at first as cyclops lack the Early game capability of bursting down enemies. You can perform the following skill combos to gain an early upper hand in the game.

Easy Lane Clearing: Skill 1 + Skill 2
Attacking Enemy Heroes: Skill 2 + Skill 1

Mid Game

Cyclops begins to shine right from this phase of the game. After unlocking Cyclops’s ultimate ability and having cleaned the current minion waves, one could rotate to the gold lane to assist your team’s gold laner. While doing this, try to place your ult on the main heroes of your interest which most likely should be the enemy’s main damage dealer.

Since enemies hit will be immobilized ie moved for a while, one can then follow up with Cyclops’s skill 2 then skill 1 for proper damage output. Do note that for proper management of the skill, use Cyclops’s Skill 2 when you know enemies are close as this skill is essentially good at chasing enemies and also to flee from enemies while dealing damage to such enemies as they flee. You can perform the following skill combo after unlocking your ultimate skill.

Skill 3 + Skill 2 + Skill 1

Late Game

In the Late Game, try to play safely while making sure you mark main targets with Cyclops’s ultimate ability. At full Build, it would be easy to rotate lanes faster in order to clear lanes and take objectives using Cyclops’s skill 2 but to efficiently conserve one Mana usage it’s advisable to take enemies purple buff. Doing this not just assists in reducing Mana consumption, it also assists in delaying enemies’ farming.
