If you’re a Mobile Legends gamer, you might be familiar with the notorious line: “Tank S5”. For context, when you play with randoms (like in solo queue) and end up being the last one to pick during a Ranked match, chances are your teammates will order you to pick a Tank. But what if you’re new to the game and only have a couple of matches playing this role? Don’t worry; we got you covered with the best MLBB tanks to use for beginners!
Best Mobile Legends Tanks for Beginners
Tanks are important in MOBA games for a variety of reasons. One, they can take quite a beating with their massive HP. They do crowd control and set opportunities for carries to attack during team fights. Tanks also protect the rest of the team against ambush — and everything else in between to win a match.
Let’s start the list with Hylos, the Grand Warden. If you’re a newbie tank user, you’ll love his staggering health pool, which can help you last longer in battle. Hylos is easy to use, can deal damage, and also has stun capability. Activate his Ring of Punishment, and you can immediately damage surrounding enemies just by moving towards them. Hylos’ ultimate is also useful as it provides movement speed for allies and (movement) reduction for enemies. Hylos is a great option to catch fleeing enemies and can provide an escape pathway during sticky situations.
A shoo-in to the list is Uranus, the Aethereal Defender. This tank hero, usually played as a roamer, has superb regen abilities (thanks to his Passive) that allow him to jump into the enemy backline and wreak havoc. You can capitalize on Uranus to bully slow-moving marksman enemies and deal considerable damage with his Ionic Edge. He can also generate an energy shield that allows him to absorb damage. Master his skill combinations, get the right items, and you’ll be tough to catch and takedown.
We also have on the list Akai, the adorable Panda Warrior. This tank can continuously stun enemies and render targets useless with his strong, non-stop CC. New users will find him reasonably easy to use, given his outstanding durability. His ultimate, Hurricane Dance, is a major headache for opposing teams as it can knock back enemies. Akai can also use it to pin enemies to the walls, immobilizing them for a short period.
You can also pick Belerick, the Guard of Nature. This tank specializes in crowd control and in neutralizing and counter-damaging DPS heroes. Belerick can immobilize enemies around him using his ultimate and is an excellent option for ganking due to his commanding AoE damage and massive regeneration. Make sure to have him lead the front lines to take advantage of his passive and dish out damage with his thorns. Usage-wise, he is not that difficult to use too. So, if you’re looking for a formidable frontline, pick this big fella.
Finally, we have Franco, the Frozen Warrior. He is a non-conventional tank, unlike others who can bulldoze their way straight into fights. You’ll need to practice good positioning and master his Iron Hook (his bread and butter skill). Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be an intimidating initiator. After landing his hooks, Franco can pull a target towards his team or tower, which spells doom! His ultimate is excellent in suppressing enemies and dealing physical damage after. Franco is durable and works pretty decent on offense. Equip him with the right items to suit his enormous strength and staggering vitality.
