[Top 10] Mobile Legends Best Attack Speed Heroes

Unlock your attack speed with these heroes.

Attack Speed refers to the rate at which a hero's basic attack may be repeatedly executed or spammed and caps off at 3.0. It may be enhanced by equipment, emblems, and a specific hero's skills, but does not involve other skills aside from the basic skill. Other skills may only enhance the basic attack. Marksmen are the main heroes dependent on Attack Speed, which is important in gaining advantage and momentum in attack scenarios, clearing lanes, advancing on opposition base and other similar objectives. Here are the Top 10 Mobile Legends Best Attack Speed Heroes according to the current meta.


10. Zilong

Zilong, The Spear of Dragon is one of the most feared heroes in Mobile Legends 2023 but is reliant on team composition, most likely due to meta. His basic attack is actually a combination of three strikes, while he has Buff, Heal, Crowd Control, Damage, Blink, Debuff and Speed Up as part of his skill set attributes. He is worthy of higher placement on this list but marksmen are more optimal in attack speed, depending on items, emblems and battle spell.

Concerning Attack Speed, Zilong has two skills worth mentioning, that actively enhance his 3 strike basic attack. His Passive Skill (Dragon Flurry) adds another three strikes to his basic attack. Each strike deals 30 (+40% Total Physical Attack) [Physical Basic Attack damage] and heals himself for 30 (+20% Total Physical Attack) HP. His Ultimate Skill (Supreme Warrior) enhances Movement Speed by 40%, Attack Speed by 45%–75% , and grants Slow Immunity for 7.5 seconds.

What makes Zilong Great for Attack Speed:

  • Skill Set - Zilong has a superb set of skills that strike in combos, making him a lethal combatant. His Ultimate Skill that enhances mobility and basic attack is his greatest asset in attack speed.
  • Second Skill (Spear Strike) - This skill automatically cools down if a target is successfully eliminated. It also has range, where he can strike from far. In terms of attack speed, this is his second best asset after his ultimate.
  • Mobility - Zilong is fast paced with range, and especially through the use of his Ultimate Skill. He is a top ganker and laner for this reason where his attack speed feeds off his mobility.

In terms of attack speed, her First Skill (Ninjutsu: Equinox) generates 300–600 (+40% Total Physical Attack) shield for 5 seconds.

If Wanwan kills an enemy hero while her ultimate is still in effect, she will switch to targeting a different opponent for an additional 1 second (maximum at 3 times[ up to 5.5 seconds]), and speed up her attack by 30%.

1. Kimmy

Kimmy, The Jetpack Rebel will go down as one of 2023’s most banned heroes. She is the only marksman who can deal magic damage while in movement. Her ability to continuously spam her basic attack and First Skill which has no cooldown places her at the top of this list. Her skill set has Buff, Area of Effect, Blink and Burst capabilities.

Kimmy executes her basic skill whilst moving, so she can't boost her attack speed. However, she converts every 10% of her attack speed into 70% movement speed and obtains a 15% HP boost when an enemy is killed. Having said that, her ability to spam her First and Basic Skills in combination with movement speed are unlike any other hero in Mobile Legends, hence making her the best attack speed hero out right now.
