Passive – Mecha Suppression
Every time Jawhed deals damage to an enemy, his basic attack damage increases for that enemy by 8% up to 10 stacks but each stack lasts for 3 seconds.
Skill 1 – Smart Missiles (AoE)
Jawhead fires 12 missiles up to 5 seconds dealing base damage(125/140/155/170/185/200)+20% total physical attack as physical damage. With the rapid firing of the missiles, his passive could easily reach its max stack.
Skill 2 – Ejector (CC)
This skill can be used 2 times,
- By pressing this skill for the first time it will buff Jawhead with an additional 30% movement speed and creating a shield that can soak 350/440/530/620/710/800 amount of damage for the next 5 seconds.
- Again pressing this skill will let Jawhead throw the closest enemy/minion to a designated direction while dealing base damage (300/340/380/420/460/500)+80% total physical attack as physical damage. The thrown unit and nearby enemies in the area will be stunned for 0.5 seconds.
By using this skill Jawhead can also throw his ally heroes but they would not take damage or Stun by this process. Allies can buy an Odd potion from the shop to prevent Jawhead’s fling.
Skill 3 – Unstoppable Force (Blink, CC)
Jawhead charges towards an enemy and knocks back upon contact. The enemy gets stuns for a short period while dealing 400/550/700 base damage +100% total physical attack as physical damage.

Mobile Legends Jawhead Gameplay Tips
Jawhead is a sustain hero, who can be used as a fighter as well as a semi tank. You can play him as a fighter by 1-2-2 rotation or else you can use it as a tank by playing it in mid lane. While picking Jawhead you have to decide its role as a Fighter or a Semi Tank according to your team. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Jawhead guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in the game. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero.
As a fighter, if you play Jawhead; you have to go to the Exp lane and hold it as well as push it; until your carry gets the core items to get kills. Do not leave your lane open for enemy pushing. Prioritize Endless Battle as your first item as it gives you mana, attack damage, and CD reduction at the same time.
As a Tank, first, buy a wooden mask and help your carry to farm faster in the early phase of the game. Buy your boot according to the enemy damage dealer. Combos are like-
Skill 2+ Skill 1+ Skill 2+ Skill 4
In the mid-phase help your carry to get the turtle buff and do a quick rotation to the mid or bottom lane with your team. Try to hide in the bush in order to gank the enemy damage dealer and slow his farm ratio. But do not forget to push lanes.
Pushing turrets gives pressure to enemies to focus on your lane more rather than your team’s carry. Make a sustained attack build so that he can initiate the team fight. Always try to fling the enemy hero into your turret or throw a minion on an enemy to stun them. You can even use your 2nd Skill to save your allies.
At this phase, Jawhead shines the most as it got sustaining build. Meanwhile, try to attack the enemy carry as much as possible. If you are playing as a fighter in your team then go for max 2 sustain build and if you are playing as a tank in your team then go for max 4 sustain build. You can use your combos like this-
Skill 3+ Skill 1+Skill 2
