Now let’s dive right into Tigri’s guide and learn to master him.
Main Weapon: Shield Toss
Tigris’s main attack is throwing his shield, which ricochets off walls and opponents to hit multiple enemies. The shield has decent direct-hit damage, but its true strength lies in bouncing it around for area damage.
First Active Ability: Charged Guard
His first ability raises an invincible shield that blocks all incoming damage for 15 seconds. Use this whenever you need breathing room from enemy fire.
Second Active Ability: Shield Slam
You can also dash forward out of the shield to slam into opponents. The slam stuns enemies and deals additional damage if you smash them against a wall.
Ultimate Ability: Decisive Cast
Finally, his ultimate sends out seeking shields that track nearby opponents no matter where they run. It deals heavy AOE damage and stuns enemies hit by the shields. Use Tigris’s ult when clashing in chokepoints or teamfights to lock down groups of enemies.
Passive Ability: Charged Shield
Tigris also passively gains shield defense each time he hits an opponent with his shield, making him harder to take down.
Tips and Tricks to use Tigris in T3 Arena
Here are some tips for dominating matches with Tigris:
- Bounce shields off walls for extra damage. Lead shots on moving targets.
- Weave shield dash slams between attacks for sustained disruption.
- Save shield ability to block major attacks and abilities like Zero Kelvin‘s ult.
- During teamfights, look to ult groups of 2+ enemies together.
- Body block skills shots are headed for low-health teammates. The shield passive reduces damage taken.

Tigris is strong against low-mobility heroes like Gatlyn, Vincent, and Chemist. Tigris locks these targets down with shield slams and his AOE ult. Weak against persistent damage dealers like Iris and Gloria who whittle down his shield defense. Heroes with shield-piercing attacks like Zero Kelvin also counter Tigris’s durability.
Tigris takes practice to handle his versatile toolkit, but mastering it transforms you into an impenetrable fortress. Remember, timing is the most crucial part when using this tank. Waiting for the right time to pop your impenetrable shield and absorbing the maximum amount of damage, like countering enemies’ ultimate combo can decide the course of any match. You can also use his dash ability instantly from his shield state to slam enemies by surprise and take out key eliminations.
