Lesley is a hero that has four abilities which are one passive and three actives. In this Lesley guide, let’s see what are her abilities in Mobile Legends, and when you can use which skill to get the best out of her.
Passive – Lethal Shot (Buff)
If Lesley doesn’t take damage for 5 seconds, her next Basic Attack gains extra range and 50% Critical Chance and deals 50 (+100% Total Physical Attack) True Damage (20% extra damage against minions).
Each point of fixed Physical Penetration Lesley acquires is converted into 0.5% Critical Damage, but her base Critical Damage is reduced to 140%.
Lesley’s Basic Attack restores 5 points of energy and her Lethal Shot doubles the amount of energy restored. The cooldown of Lethal Shot resets each time Lesley casts a skill.
Skill 1 – Master of Camouflage (Conceal, Buff)
Lesley enters the Camouflage state, gaining double Energy Regen, 40% extra Movement Speed, and 85–135 extra Physical Attack. The state lasts 3 seconds or until Lesley takes or deals damage. Enemies can detect Lesley’s position through distortions of their surroundings.
Skill 2 – Tactical Grenade (Blink) (CC)
Lesley throws a tactical grenade in the target’s direction while slightly jumping back, dealing 150–300 to enemies in a cone and knocking them back. Lesley can cast this skill during the Ultimate Snipe to cancel the state and immediately fire a Fatal Bullet at the target. The attack is only triggered when there are unfired Fatal Bullets left.
Skill 3 – Ultimate Snipe (Burst)
Lesley [gains vision to nearby enemies and can lock] onto the target enemy hero and fires 4 Lethal Bullets in succession, each dealing 250–350 (+80% Extra Physical Attack) (+enemy’s 5% Lost HP) Physical Damage and restoring 10 energy on hit. The Bullets can be blocked by other enemy heroes. If this skill is interrupted, each remaining Bullet reduces the skill cooldown by 10%.
Passive: Lesley’s Crit Chance is increased by 5%–15%.
Special Buff (sibling buff)
Developers have already told you that Harley and Lesley are siblings, so when they both are playing in the same team they will receive +10HP.

Mobile Legends Lesley Gameplay Tips
Marksman is one of the most important roles in Mobile Legends. In the current meta 1-3-1 line-up is more popular and effective, where the tank and mage clear the mid-lane as soon as possible and the tank helps the jungler in the early game to farm effectively. Tank and mage with the jungler rotate to any side of the map together to make a possible gank. As a marksman, you have to play safe if your team is not around you and farm effectively without dying in the early game.
Lesley is weak in the early game as any other marksman in the game. But currently, she is pretty strong in the laning phase against most other marksmen. In the early game, she can utilize her passive and enhanced first skill to last-hit minions and dodge enemy marksman basic or skill attacks with semi-invisibility. She can also harass the opponent with her enhanced first skill. It’s a great skill to poke enemies in the early game.
Skill 1 + Basic Attack + Skill 2 + Skill 1
In the mid-game, her true damage passive along with her enhanced skills hurts enemies a lot. Whenever there is an opportunity to push the lane, make sure to use it wisely.
Lesley can push lanes very fast. But you always have to keep an eye on the map to be safe from enemy ganks. If you are losing lane, it’s better to stay under the tower and farm available jungle creeps. Staying alive is very important as a marksman. You can also rotate with your team to take down different objectives.
In the late game, Lesley becomes a monster with the recent changes. She can hurt a lot, even the tanks are not safe from her. Although she is very strong in the late game, she is still a marksman and very squishy. The team’s victory mostly depends on the marksman as the game approaches the late game. So this stage try not to make big mistakes like rotating solo, enemies will mark you and take you down first. Do not imitate a team fight unless you see a low HP enemy. Always wait for tanks or fighters to engage first then target the enemy damage dealer. You have to be more careful around the enemy mage, cause Wind of Nature won’t work against magic damage. Save it to counter high physical damage dealers and make an outplay. You can use your ultimate to get an enemy vision or kill a low HP target easily.
Skill 1 + Basic Attack + Skill 1+ Skill 2 + Ultimate
