Weapons ready!


Bolin Farslayer is a hero unit corresponding to the Artillery upgrade path and his name may be a reference to the Dwarf, Balin, in the Hobbit. He's one of the five heroes with ranged attacks. He is unlocked by buying the Premium Content (


Flash), by paying 0.99 USD in-app purchase (iOS and Android) or by completing Coldstep Mines (Steam). He uses a gun rather than an explosive weapon.


Thunder and lightning have nothing on this crackshot! Let loose a hail of bullets, and make them fear where they step with an arsenal of mines!

Tips and Tricks

  • Bolin is a hybrid support hero, this means his skills have to be used in a tactial way.
  • Bolin specializes in Crowd Control; thus, it is recommended to send him against individually weak but numerous enemies.
  • Even though Bolin has a good melee stat (6 Bars in HP, 5 Bars in Melee), players should NOT send him in melee combat as doing so will prevent him from using any of his abilites.
  • Bolin moves slowly so it is important not to switch lanes unless urgently required.
  • Since Bolin is a support hero who should be used with conjunction with barracks to form a choke point for enemies.
  • Bolin shouldn't be sent against instant-kill bosses such as J.T., Vez'nanSarelgaz or The Kingpin, as he will only stall them for a split second, dying in the process. Instead, he can be used to attack them from afar or to attack the enemies that accompany the bosses.


  • "Weapons ready!"
  • "I never miss!"
  • "Hasta la vista baby!"
  • "Oh-ho, do you feel lucky, punk?"
  • (upon death) "Yarg!"


  • "I never miss!"
    • A line spoken by El Wray in the Grindhouse film Planet Terror.
  • "Hasta la vista baby!"
    • The catchphrase associated with Arnold Schwarzenegger's titular character in Terminator II: Judgement Day. "Hasta la vista" is a Spanish phrase meaning "see you later".
  • "Oh-ho, do you feel lucky, punk?"
    • A line spoken by Harry Callahan in Dirty Harry. The full line "I know what you're thinking, punk. You're thinking "did he fire six shots or only five?" Now to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and will blow you head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself a question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?" is understandably very long and therefore very hard to remember, which is why only the last part has become the most memorable.
  • He might be a reference to the dwarven sniper in DOTA 1 and 2
  • "Bolin" is the reference to Juan Andrés's Steam account of the same name, an Ironhide Studio employee.
