Valve has finally released the long-awaited Dread Reckoning Update for Dota 2, Patch 7.32E (was supposed to be 7.33), bringing significant changes to the game and introducing a new hero. This update brings slightly stronger balance adjustments and will shake up the competitive scene and keep players on their toes. Not to mention, the release of Muerta, which is a new agility-based hero, is now available in the game. However, it’s not the big update everyone’s been looking for.
Muerta is a ranged hero who wields a pistol and the power of the dead to take down her enemies. Her unique abilities include Dead Shot, Phantom Shot, and Exorcism, which allow her to drain the spirits of enemies, fire a shot that stuns enemies, and channel the power of the dead to deal damage in an area around her.
New Hero, MUERTA
With her fearsome trickshots, summoned spirits, and a sidearm to spare, Muerta’s knack for taking lives was so impressive, Death himself put her on the payroll. A twin-pistoled engine of dead-eyed vengeance, Muerta shepherds wayward souls to the other side, whether they want to get there or not. And if they need more convincing, she’s ready to reveal her true form as a murderous spectral nightmare if it helps them die a little faster.
