You won't break your back carrying with these heroes!

You may tick all the boxes necessary for a team fight, but without the presence of a reliable and strong carry hero on your team, you are guaranteed to lose. Carry heroes simply make or break the game. There are various carry heroes in the game, but not all of them are strong in the current meta.

It may be difficult to pick a carry hero to master especially if you are a new player. Worry not! We have got you covered with the best Dota 2 carry heroes that are guaranteed to win you the game in the current meta!


10. Ursa

This ferocious and breathtaking bear is a force to be reckoned with, his claws, as swift as the wolves of Icewrack can easily shred through his enemies. There has been a rise in the popularity of Ursa due to how much he does with a little farm, mostly dependent on his skills to secure kills. 

Ursa is one of the most played carry heroes in the game, known for his ability to jungle smoothly and slay Roshan alone. His third ability, Fury Swipes, combined with his second, Overpower, can obliterate squishy enemy support heroes in the early game. Buying a Morbid mask allows him to sustain in lane and turn around a fight swiftly coupled with his ultimate, Enrage. 

A late-game Ursa is a completely different beast. Buying items like Diffusal Blade, Blink Dagger, Satanic, Aghanim’s Scepter, Black King Bar, and Abbysal Blade turn him into an unstoppable carry, making it easy for him to jump into the enemy base and not worry about his life. Playing Ursa efficiently will guarantee you a rampage.

What makes Ursa a fearsome carry?

  • Less reliable on items, more reliable on abilities.
  • Can easily secure Roshan alone, gaining the Aegis of Immortality.
  • Can easily fend off enemy melee heroes from the lane. 
  • Menace against squishy heroes.
  • His ultimate makes him take 80% less damage and provides 50% status resistance.
  • Aghanim Scepter allows him to use his ultimate even when stunned or silenced, dispelling the enemy spells.

9. Faceless Void

Not all can master Faceless Void the way he has mastered manipulating time. His ultimate can quickly turn the game around for good or for worse! The hero requires immense practice and patience.

Void is heavily picked in the high-ranked games, not all enemies can match his efficient and fast-paced farming skills. He works best if paired with heroes that supplement his Chronosphere ultimate ex. Kunkka, Invoker, Skywrath Mage. His mid-game potential is unmatched because all he needs to brawl is his ultimate and a few items!

The most tried and tested items built on him include Mjolnir, Black King Bar, Butterfly, Eye of Skadi, Monkey King Bar, Satanic, Silver Edge, Sange, and Yasha. As Void, you need a mix of heavy damage and sustain to survive and deal damage in fights. 

What makes Faceless Void a fearsome carry?

  • Mobility with Time Walk and Reverse Time Walk ability. (Aghanim’s Shard Upgrade)
  • Can turn around a fight after successfully using Time Walk to negate dealt damage.
  • Chronosphere ultimate stops all TPs and reveals invisible heroes.
  • Time Dilation ability prevents the enemies to cast spells for a certain period depending on the cooldown and the level of the ability.
  • Time Lock passive bashes and stuns a target while dealing increased damage per bash, this can turn deadly if combined with a Monkey King Bar or other damage items.
  • Can farm faster with the assistance of the Time Walk ability.
  • Aghanim’s Scepter allows him to all bash units and heroes in his path while using the Time Walk ability.

8. Terrorblade

No other hero fills you with dread and terror as much as Terrorblade. Not all heroes can turn around a team fight like Terrorblade. The sheer power of Sunder is not to be underestimated!

Terrorblade has insane early game potential in regards to farming. His mirror illusions can jungle comfortably as he farms the lane, surpassing the enemy carry’s net worth by a mile. Having great level 1 stats and attack speed drives his farm exponentially. 

Building items like Manta Style, Diffusal Blade, Eye of Skadi, Black King Bar, Butterfly, Monkey King Bar offer great damage and sustain which is essential in late game team fights, that is where Terrorblade shines! A six-slotted TB can rip through towers and heroes, nothing can stop him from destroying the enemy ancient at that point!

What makes Terrorblade a fearsome carry?

  • Can farm efficiently with the Illusions generated from Conjure Image ability.
  • Sunder makes him unstoppable if used at the right time.
  • Level 25 provides the option of reducing Sunder cooldown, which is immensely useful in the late game, not only to save yourself but to save your allies as well.
  • Metamorphosis ability makes him deal more damage which can be lethal if supplemented by damage-dealing items.
  • Aghanim’s Scepter allows him to cast a fear ability, a great purchase if the enemy core heroes are melee.
  • Reflection ability can be used to prevent heroes with a Blink Dagger to blink away, which is essential while chasing.
  • Can mow down towers with just a few items and Metamorphosis.

7. Monkey King

No carry list is ever complete without the King himself. Monkey King is one of the newest additions to the carry pool yet he manages to put up a show with his deadly and mischievous abilities.

Monkey King is a flexible hero, can be played in all positions but his optimal performance can be experienced only in the carry role. Melee heroes dread playing against him as he can get the Jingu stacks which provide him with great lifesteal. His mobility is unparalleled.

Monkey King does a great deal of damage with a few items, as he is a late-game specialist. The standard rampage build includes Eye of Skadi, Satanic, Black King Bar, Abyssal Blade, Aghanim’s Scepter, Nullifier. If he manages to get the Jingu stacks on you in the late game, there is no way you survive.

  • Mischief offers great movement speed if turned into certain units i.e the courier.

6. Luna

The Moon rider herself! Luna is essentially a beginner-friendly hero, but we frequently see it getting picked in both pub and pro games. The reason is her quick farming abilities and massive AoE damage output. 

Luna offers tremendous wave clear, which returns her a great deal of gold. Luna farms fairly well in the early game and offers decent damage to her nearby allies. This is an example of great synergy, Luna can be picked alongside massive crowd control heroes like Magnus, Tidehunter, Earthshaker, etc. Luna also is capable of split pushing with her illusions. 

Luna is highly flexible as she has many routes when it comes to item builds. She can easily dominate games even with a magical build! But the most common items on Luna are the ones that provide physical damage. Manta Style, Black King Bar, Hurricane Pike, Satanic, Butterfly, Eye of Skadi, Daedalus are some of the most common items that guarantee great sustain and possibly a rampage!

5. Juggernaut

The masked Samurai is a deadly hero that is better left untamed. It is impossible to contain him if he unleashes his true potential.

Juggernaut is considered to be a beginner-friendly hero but only the advanced players understand the true potential and mechanics of this hero. Not only is he great at farming, but he can also control the tempo with his ultimate. He is also known as one of the most flexible heroes in the game in terms of item builds.

Juggernaut is a threat from the middle game itself, the enemies should be aware of his whereabouts after he acquires his first few items. If not controlled, then Juggernaut can snowball and become unkillable. 

What makes Juggernaut an amazing carry?

  • Blade Fury ability makes him magic immune from most spells.
  • Does more with levels.
  • Healing Ward allows him and his allies to heal during team fights.
  • Great base movement speed, armor, and attack speed.

4. Gyrocopter

Not even the sky is the limit for Gyrocopter, as he is one of the few heroes that can 1v5 effortlessly. His abilities turn him into a killing machine. 

Gyrocopter has multiple AoE spells that allow him to farm easily in a short period. His ultimate, Call Down, allows him to slow down enemies while his deadly spells coupled with insane damage-dealing items neutralize them! Gyrocopter is often known as a great early game hero, reliant more on spells than items. 

Recently, there has been a rise in magical builds but nothing can beat the classic physical builds which have made countless enemies rage quit. The rampage build includes Daedalus, Black King Bar, Aghanim’s Scepter, Satanic, Butterfly, Sange and Yasha, and the almighty Divine Rapier, which becomes a necessity if the game goes over 60 mins!

What makes Gyrocopter a fearsome carry?

  • Great AoE damage, ideal for farming and jungling.
  • Immense wave clearing abilities.
  • Known for catching up in the late game after a shaky early game.

3. Morphling

Morphling was one of the most picked heroes during Ti 10. His high pick-rate is attributed to his flexibility and ease of farm. Even if he lacks during the early game, he can easily catch up later on.

Most people shy away from Morphling due to the complex nature of his abilities, but if you can master him, there is no way your enemies can have an upper hand! Morphling is a nuisance to enemy supports due to the infamous “shotgun” combo. Mastering Morphling requires quick decision-making skills, which only come with time and experience. 

The ideal build of Morphling is Ethereal Blade, Manta Style, Black King Bar, Eye of Skadi, Butterfly, Linken’s Sphere. These items provide insane sustain and lifesteal along with great damage that allows you to pierce through the enemy armor. Multiple rampages will come your way if you master Morphling.

What makes Morphling a fearsome carry?

  • Immensely mobile hero with the Waveform ability.
  • Very tanky in the late game.
  • Can “Shotgun” enemy heroes with the Adaptive Strike ability and Ethereal Blade.
  • Morph allows him to turn into enemy heroes (or allies if you purchase the Aghanim Scepter), which can often lead to deadly combos or allow him to escape team fights.

  • Impressive level 1 attributes and stats.
  • Can easily survive a long team fight with the Attribute Shift ability.

2. Phantom Assassin 

All support heroes fear the presence of Phantom Assassin as she is known to obliterate them with only a few hits! She is agile and silent in her moves, as an assassin should be! 

Phantom Assassin is one of the most played heroes in the game. She has great base movement and attack speed, which is rarely found in a carry hero. Her spells may seem underwhelming in the early game but as she reaches the late game mark, she can do a lot with just one Stifling Dagger.

You could build flexibly on this hero, opting for the farming Battlefury build which may delay your entry in fights but is deadly as you acquire more items in the late game. Usually, we see the Desolator build which is more of an offensive and early game fighting build. Items like Desolator, Black King Bar, Abyssal Blade, Satanic, Butterfly, Monkey King Bar, Nullifier are the most bought and effective on Phantom Assassin.

What makes Phantom Assassin a great carry?

  • Can destroy enemy supports with just one Stifiling Dagger.

  • Has great mobility with the Phantom Strike spell, can be used both defensively and offensively.

  • The damage is supplemented with allies that provide armor reduction spells or abilities.

There are various reasons why Sven is number one on this list. He has it all, AoE stun, ease of farming, movement speed, and double damage. Sven is capable of dominating the battlefield all by himself! The items only supplement his abilities and enhance his presence during team fights.

Sven has high base armor and decent movement speed which makes him immune to early game ganks. He is at the peak during the late game, items like Echo Sabre, Assault Cuirass, Daedelus, Black King Bar, Satanic, Bloodthorn turn him into a killing machine!
