Modifiers [?]

  • Pushes the target at a speed of 1200.
  • Force does not disable affected units, so they still can cast abilities, attack, and turn during the push.
    • Does not interrupt channeling abilities of the affected target.
    • However, being a unit-targeted ability, it interrupts the caster's channeling abilities upon cast.
  • Does not push units affected by Flaming Lasso icon Flaming Lasso, Black Hole icon Black Hole, Chronosphere icon Chronosphere or Duel icon Duel.
    • Cannot push units through Kinetic Field icon Kinetic Field or Arena Of Blood icon Arena Of Blood.
    • If a pushed unit is affected by Soulbind icon Soulbind, it cannot push the unit further than its maximum break distance.
    • If a pushed unit is leashed by Pounce icon Pounce, the leash gets instantly broken upon cast.
      • However, if a pushed unit gets leashed after cast, it cannot push the unit further than the maximum radius.
  • Can move units over impassable terrain.
    • Destroys trees within 100 radius the target come in contact with during the push.
  • Can be cast on Roshan icon Roshan but without pushing him, since Roshan is immune to forced movement.

Recommended Heroes[]
