    Me and my friends have been struggling against a few Huskar's lately and we wonder. How to counter him?

    Also, do the community feel that he's abit overpowered? Or is it just that we are playing bad against him?

    Thanks in advance.

    Necrolyte I think. Build late with him.

    There are, at least, 4 ways (you can choose any of them):
    1)Pick Necrolyte.
    2)Buy Blade Mail.
    3)Disable him.
    4)Nuke him.

    Thanks for the answers.

    But, we are mostly playing pub games at the moment, so it's hard to know if he's gonna be picked. The Blade Mail is a good thing, but what about early game? Before we've got money for a Blade Mail. Use all nukes at the end of his HP should work I guess?

    Also, do you think he's OP?

    Play ranged heroes against him, try not to be near his attack range, just last-hit and be there for XP. Also you can buy Salves, as you can heal yourself while taking DPS from Burning Spears.

    Huskar works the best while in very low hp.
    Necrolyte and AA works do a great work against enemies in low hp.

    Don't think he is OP.

    Panda can counter him.
    Weaver + 1 disable.
    Also Blademail and BKB.
    Don't let him gank you at early otherwise you're screw'd.

    I would consider Huskar below midtier. Can harass well on a lane, but thats about it. No escape ability (so normally he can't put his good harassing potential to use if he isn't heavily supported), dies fast, has no disables (just a slow that hurts him).

    Stuns, disables and teamplay work well vs him. Save nukes for the time after he used his ulti, if possible.

    Huskar is not overpowered
    Yes you can chain disable him but that's not a counter that's a dumb answer you can chaindisable and kill any hero.
    If you want to kill him in a 1v1 fight you can pick Troll or Ursa, they will usually win the fight.
    Necrolyte is not a counter it's a joke, ulti and hit BKB and watch him perish he won't even hurt you, lol,
    Panda yes it's a counter depending on the lineup, a 1v1 fight you win after you get MKB.
    IMO if it's a pub and you want to counter him get ursa with Vladmir Vanguard and Blademail you will definitely win a 1v1 fight.

    You are playing bad against him,he is not even close to overpowered.
    Here are few ways you can deal with him:
    3-Ghost Scepter and Blademail
    4-Most hardcarries beat him late game without problems.


    He's not OP. He excels most when he has low HP, so get a nuker like lina. Once he's in the low hps, just ult him.

    Or gank him and you'll be fine.

    Or kill him first, or buy blademail.
