He Will Protect You From Trickery - Hun Batz 4.25

January 10, 2018


Welcome to my guide for Hun Batz, the Howler Monkey

My name is Cyberhawk. I am a casual player who primarily plays conquest & siege. I bounce between Solo lane and Jungle, but 9/10 times in the Jungle, Im playing Hun Batz

This is my first smitefire guide, and I intend to update it, so feel free to comment things that should be added/edited.

Pros / Cons

Speak No Evil

  • Good burst damage
  • Good wave & camp clear
  • Excellent mobility
  • Outstanding Team-fight ultimate
    Fear No Evil
  • Very sticky, good chase
  • Always relevant, even if just to annoy
  • Squishy without defensive items
  • Very vulnerable to cripples and stuns
  • Will rarely 100-0 people
  • Only CC is his ult
  • Sacred Monkey can leave you in bad position


Do No Evil



- Normal Gank -
Sacred Monkey or Blink -> Fear No Evil -> Basic -> Overhand Smash -> Basic -> Somersault -> basics.

- No-Ult Gank -
Overhand Smash -> 2xBasic -> Somersault -> 2xBasic -> Sacred Monkey -> Basic -> Overhand Smash

- Team-fight -
Blink -> Fear No Evil -> Basic -> Overhand Smash -> Somersault AWAY -> wait for a runner -> Sacred Monkey -> Basic -> Overhand Smash.

The main things to practice with Hun Batz are:

The placement of your Fear No Evil
Weaving a basic between every ability
When to use Somersault vs Sacred Monkey
Sacred Monkey teleporting you to the NEXT target hit


Buy No Evil

Starter Items

A Basket on your Head


Jungle Relics

Core Items
Item 1
Warrior Tabi Needs no explanation. Hun Batz is a physical god that doesn't breathe attack speed, and you need boots as a jungler. These should be your first item, always.

Item 2
Hydra's Lament is a match made in heaven with Infused Strikes, as well as the CDR that Hun Batz loves, and its super cheap. It is missing pen which can be rough, but the benefits outweigh that most of the time.

Item 4
Hun Batz really only needs 1 crit item to be effective (with a passive 30% crit chance). Deathbringer gives you some more immediate burst, and has excellent synergy with Hydra's Lament, but Malice will give you more damage overall. Personally I prefer Deathbringer. This should be built 4th, since Hun Batz really doesn't come online until he has this item.

Item 6
Titan's Bane will always be in your build, but you dont need to build it until enemies start armoring up. Whether this is item 5 or 6 will depend on how armored they are, and how badly you need defense.

After you build Boots and Hydra's, you have two item slots to fill. Your stats to look out for are: Penetration > CDR = Protections > Movement Speed. Grab at least one defensive/hybrid item, Hun Batz plays too risky otherwise.

Too many Options

Beware the Jungle (Damage)

Protection from Trickery (Defense)


Plan No Evil

Early Game

Mid Game

Late Game


Hun Batz is a great jungler, tons of fun to play, and will leave you laughing like a madman as you bonuce, leap, teleport, and monkey all around the enemy team.
Hopefully this guide gets some more people to play the god that in my opinion is one of the best and most fun Assassins in the game!

Special thanks to Zibly and his awesome Template!
