Mobile Legends Paquito Gameplay Tips

According to Paquito’s skill casting abilities, we can categorize him as a moderately difficult to play type hero. He is very strong in a 1v1 situation. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Paquito 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.

Early Game

In the early game, your focus should be on controlling your lane effectively by clearing minions and using your skills to pressure your opponents. At the same time, make sure to accumulate Champ Stance stacks by using your skills, up to a maximum of three. This will prepare you for better abilities and improved mobility.

Additionally, help your team secure early objectives like the Turtle, and if your mid-laner offers assistance, consider participating in jungle invades for an advantage. This early-game strategy sets the stage for a successful mid and late-game.

Mid Game   

In the mid game, your enhanced abilities, thanks to a fully stacked Champ Stance, make you a formidable presence in team fights. Use these improved skills to start fights, chase down enemies, and secure kills effectively.

During this phase, Paquito shines as a split pusher. By pressuring side lanes, you create map control and force the enemy team to respond, potentially creating opportunities for your team.

Focus on joining team fights and capturing important objectives like Towers and the Lord. Your mobility and damage output play a critical role in these battles.

Also, make sure to progress with your item build. By this stage, prioritize completing key items like the Bloodlust Axe to boost both your damage and survivability, ensuring you’re a strong mid-game hero.

Do not leave your lane wide open but if needed do a quick rotation in mid and help your carry to get kills. You can perform these skills to get an advantage.

Your main objective in these fights is to focus on key enemy targets and consistently deal high damage with a well-rounded item build.

Furthermore, late game emphasizes objective control. Continue securing critical objectives like the Lord and apply pressure on the enemy by pushing lanes effectively.
