Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Gameplay
The core gameplay of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is centered around the battle between two opposing teams composed of 5 players per team. The main objective of the game is similar to other traditional MOBA games which is to destroy the opposing enemy’s base.
At the start of the game, players must choose their heroes from a deep pool of characters with various set of unique abilities. There are currently 6 different roles to choose from:
Throughout the battle, players will level up their chosen heroes and obtain items to overpower their enemies. Through the help of allied minions, ally heroes, and defensive structures such as turrets, the team must accomplish one main objective – to destroy the enemy base structure.
A game of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang usually lasts from 15 up to 25 minutes of gameplay. This fast-paced gameplay is unique to the mobile gaming industry and relatively quicker compared to the genre’s counterparts in other gaming devices such as DotA 2 and League of Legends in the PC gaming industry.
