Layla Gameplay Tips and Strategy

Unlike any other marksman, Layla has the longest attack range of them all.

In the early stage of the game, you can dominate the lane and farm freely when you harass the enemy using your first skill. This will activate your passive skill, increase your attack range and movement speed, and deal with crit damage. Once you reach level 2, you can get more gold quickly because your second skill can clear the creep wave faster.

In the mid-late game, in a clash, always stay behind your tank or fighter to get the free hit you need against the enemy, or best, don’t show up yet unless your ally killed the enemy’s burst damage hero first.

When defending the tower, just spam your first and second skill to the creep wave so it will be hard for your enemy to go high ground and take down the turrets.


Layla is one of the dominant marksmen in the late game because of her increased attack range and insane crit damage. However, she’s easy to burst down when caught off guard because of her lack of mobility, so positioning and map awareness are vital to survive the clash and winning the game.
