Thanks in advance.
Blademail after he dashes and he would most likely be dead.

Everyone has mentioned what has needed to be mentioned. Also, get a strong lane against him to shut him down early. It is very easy to win a lane against Huskar.

You pick Naix.

Or pick 3 heavy nukers with stun and slow! Yes, both.

Then one hard carry, the one that will eat him alive later on.

And one healer, yep, Necrolyte or Omniknight.

Black King Bar is the main enemy of Huskar warriors as they never hold any bar, they hold the spear with fire.

Default Re: How to counter Huskar?

another way for me to deal with huskar is to pick windrunner. usually he canīt kill you.
if he jumps u, just windrun away. u are also able to harass him with your attack range and powershot. in addition. u have a disable (a jump often makes vulnarable for a shackle)

Default Re: How to counter Huskar?

Actually I find Viper deserves a special mention, his ulti pierces through SW's BKB (if he gets it) lowering his attack speed in which is a great deal to SW who relies on his attack speed and around mid game even moreso when he gets a lifesteal orb. Another mention is that Viper is very very strong against SW who needs to keeps his hp low since Nethertoxin kicks up and literally makes mincemeat out of SW, Poison Attack and Corrosive Skin both further slows down SW's attack speed, making him useless! He even beats SW when laning.

Stuns + Lots of Burst.
Lifestealer.
Necrolyte.
BKB/Linken's.

Outcarry him, as in my experience he tapers off around the point an even harder carry hits their stride.

Shut down his farm in the laning phase as best you can. Cripple him early and keep him there.

Omniknight's Repel does wonders to counter Huskar, and if timed well, Repel can even be cast just after Huskar casts his Ulti (flying through the air), and Huskar will have hurt his own life, but dealt none to the allied target. And since his Fire Arrows deal magic damage, Repel prevents all that burn damage!

Pick Razor. Huskar always underestimates that Static Link.

Stuns and just about any high damage nuke can wreck huskar with ease. Some examples include Lion, Lina, NA, Axe, Bane, and of course Necrolyte. Itemwise, bkb and blademail work wonders against him.

Really I don't get this thread, Huskar is not very hard to counter.

The real underlying problem of this thread is 'How to stop idiot noobs feeding Huskar?'

Because that's the only way Huskar owns, by being fed by noobs. He isn't even as problematic as Ursa...

Necrolyte is a great counter to him and also a Heaven's Halberd, Scythe of Vyse, or BKB Piercing disable like Batrider's Flaming Lasso is great.

Default Re: How to counter Huskar?

there is a mountain of ways to counter huskar, a strong bara mid can instantly bully a huskar all game. double range picks in the lane hes in, prevents a farm. i assume you mean how to stop a big huskar that is hard to pull off since you can go a slew of bulids with huskar but you have to remember 1 lion disables enough to kill his other teammates in order to 2v1, 3v1, 4v1, 5v1 huskar in the fight granted they dont bkb since scrubs never bkb. but any smart player can counter a huskar with the correct team.
Certain heros perfectly counter huskar though
necrolyte can ulti him when he ulties thats obvious, so can tuskarr once hes in dota 2, drow and viper significantly control huskar, i prefer necrolic personally since almost all of its skills are opt for pouncing a huskar including its ulti's stuns. My other fave to counter huskar is es because es is just a solid pick when your derp team picks bad picks an es really picks up the slack

---------- Post added at 04:21 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:17 PM ----------

the real problem are lame teams with huskar like drows getting inner vit casted on them, and undyings casting decay as huskar rampages, but thats more dota 1.0 people arent really smart enough to pull stuff off like that on dota 2, and terrorblade gets 3.6 agi per level up and phantom lancer gets 4+ agi per level up but casting inner vit reveals the real phantom lancer...like it matters once its big....this is the real problem with huskar and it always has been, esp since they patched inner vit to work on magic immune allies you cant even cast purify on magic immune allies

Easy, save your nukes for until he's low enough to die from them. He can't initiate with BKB, since his damage is shit to boot, so he'll usually pop it halfway down. So once he gets BKB, throw your nukes off on him to start, and ideally you'll have someone with a BKB-piercing stun, and then everyone can AA focus him down pretty easy at that point.

Necrolyte as a counter is retarded, Huskar is a BKB carrier who will pop it off at half health, which is the only time his ult is useful.

Yes, BUT if you go Necrolyte mid and get some level advantage over him (either by beating him mid or outlevelling his dual lane), you can force him down using heartstopper and ulti during those crucial early game skirmishes.

The problem is usually that Husk dominates the lane he's on, and if you dualled on a side lane then by the time you get around to facing him he outlevels you, or has BKB, and then you can't do anything about him.

I still think Necro is a good pick against him, it's just not a HARD counter due to BKB.

Also, a lot of idiot pub huskars dont get BKB, so...

Necro's aura. Huskar could beat an equally farmed necro, but Huskar can't beat Necro with a stun buddy. Like most carries use the buddy system and you can be fine.

Simple Disables.

When he's fat especially, nothing really takes him down other than disables, and a little teamwork. Earlier in the game its a lot easier.

The thing about this guy is, if you aren't careful and don't put in some effort to try and stop him, you'll definitely be screwed.

Your necro will be long dead before you could kill a bkb-ed huskar with your aura. The key here is lifesteal.
Naix is more of a hard counter for huskar.

Naix, Slark or Jugger is really a good counter on Huskar.

Add BKB and Huskar is a dustbin hero.
