Mows down her enemies with heavy artillery and her trusty lizard.
The plucky Keen known as Beatrix Snapfire has survived to venerable old age in the harsh deserts of Nanarak, owing to her ingenious craftsmanship, and overwhelming firepower. Just as happy to blow your legs off with her Trusty Scattergun as to fill your belly up with a deliciously-dangerous Firesnap Cookie, she delights in riding into battle with her dragon toad Mortimer, always ready to mow down their enemies with her Lil' Shredder, a homemade heavy artillery, or finish them off with a surprise — a steady, long range artillery barrage of Mortimer's Kisses and sometimes an ally Mortimer Gobbled Up, covering the battlefield in pools of flame.

Bio[]

Snapfire minimap iconBeatrix Snapfire
▶️ "Beadie and Mortimer. We're kind of a package deal."
Beatrix Snapfire and her dragon toad Mortimer are a welcome sight to the ragged folk who scratch out lives along the desert routes and oases scattered throughout Nanarak, the rain-forsaken gateway to the Outlands.

As well known for her unrivaled skills as a weaponsmith as for dispensing wisdom, mirth, and the meanest firesnap cookies the world has ever seen, Beadie's survived to a ripe old age in a young keen's trade by being quick with her wits and even quicker with her guns.

Indeed, the Outlands are littered with the bones of bandits and ne'er-do-wells who thought to take advantage of her small stature and propensity for kindness.

Scatterblast targeting indicator

Scatterblast's custom targeting indicator.


  • Scatterblast travels at a speed of 3000, taking 0.27 seconds to travel the full distance.
  • With the travel distance and end radius, it can hit units up to 1200 range away.
    • The complete area is shaped like a cone.
  • Scatterblast's damage is determined upon projectile hit, and not upon cast.
    • It has a custom ability targeting indicator and the damage dealt is determined by two cones, with the darker color cone indicating the point-blank damage distance, and the remaining cone distance.
    • Cast range bonuses only increases the arc length and reduce the angle of the cone. It neither increases the point-blank distance, nor the remaining cone distance.
    • Deals 150/240/330/420 (Talent 255/345/435/525) damage (before reductions) to units within point-blank distance.
  • Leveling up Scatterblast, or learning the damage increasing Talent talent does not update the damage of an already launched instance.

  • Cannot be cast on allied units that are currently channeling. This includes self-casting.
    • Cannot be cast on invulnerable and hidden units.

  • Can jump over other units and over impassable terrain.
  • The area damage and stun are applied upon losing the hop buff. This means if the leap gets interrupted, the effects are applied earlier.
    • Firesnap Cookie first applies the heal, then the damage, then the stun, then the Mortimer Kisses debuff.
    • The health restore Talent talent immediately upgrades already launched cookies, making them heal on impact.
  • Destroys trees within 300 radius around the target upon landing.
  • upon cast landing the unit deals one instance of impact damage based on the current level of Mortimer Kisses icon Mortimer Kisses, and leaves a lava puddle behind. The puddle applies the debuff in 0.5-second intervals, starting immediately and lasts for 3 seconds.
    • Mortimer Kisses notes fully apply. If it is not learned, no glob is launched.
    • Firesnap Cookie can deal up to the following amount of impact damage and total damage per second (before reductions) per level of Mortimer Kisses, considering its impact damage, and standing within the puddle for the full duration:
      • LEVEL 1
        160/230/300/370 (Talent 190/260/330/400) + 270 total damage per second

Beadie constantly tinkers with a design she first dreamed up plotting an exodus from her old gang.

  • Interrupts Snapfire's channeling abilities on cast.
  • Sets Snapfire's damage to the given values, attack damage bonuses, and reductions are completely ignored.
    • TALENT
      This restriction is removed with the Lil' Shredder uses attack damage Talent talent.
    • Leveling up Lil' Shredder or learning the Talent talent does not update the damage of the currently active instance.
  • An attack charge is lost whenever an attack is executed, regardless of the outcome. This means missed attacks use up charges as well.
  • The number of charges left is visible on the buff icon.
  • Lil' Shredder uses a single debuff on the target. Following attacks increase its stack count.
    • A number on the icon reveals the number of stacks. The number is visible to everyone.
    • Since only one debuff is used, each attack resets the duration of the entire stack.
  • The armor reduction is applied on any attacked target, including buildings and allies.
  • Can deal a total of 180/330/480/630 (Talent 240/440/640/840) damage with all 6 (Talent 8) attacks (before reductions).
  • Can reduce a total of 3 (Talent 4) armor with all attacks.
  • The attacks first place the debuff, then apply their own damage.
    • Since the Lil' Shredder debuff is applied before the damage, the ability's damage benefits from the armor reduction applied.
  • Successive casts do not stack but refresh the buff, resetting the number of attacks and updating the attack range bonus.
  • TALENT
    The multishot Talent talent performs instant attacks on 3 different random targets within attack range whenever attacking during Lil' Shredder.
    • These instant attacks can proc any attack modifiers and on-hit effects normally. They do not have True Strike, and are affected by disarms.
    • The secondary attacks have no target priorities, they choose random valid targets within range, excluding buildings.
    • The secondary attacks' search radius can be further increased by other attack range bonuses.

Little did Beadie know when she adopted Mortimer, dragon toads--which aren't even toads at all--share more than just a name with their distant draconic cousins.

  • The projectiles have a min and max travel time of 0.8 – 2 seconds respectively, and a projectile speed of 1300.
    • This means up to 1625 range, the speed adapts to lower values, and for distance starting at 2600, the speed adapts to higher values.
  • Launches globs in 0.688 (Talent 0.393)-second intervals, starting immediately upon cast, resulting in 8 (Talent 14) globs.
  • Mortimer Kisses is not a channeling ability. It can only be interrupted in the following conditions:
    • When Snapfire is affected by silence, cyclone, hex, sleep, taunt, or fear sources.
    • When other orders, except for attack and movement orders, are given to Snapfire.
    • Stun sources using the modifier_stunned reliably interrupt Mortimer Kisses.
    • Other disabling sources (e.g. forced movement from enemies) may interrupt Mortimer Kisses only if the disabling duration is greater than the intervals between two launched globs.
  • The following effects are applied on Snapfire while Mortimer Kisses are active:
    • Sets Snapfire's movement speed to 0 (has priority over hastes) and disarms Snapfire for its duration, so it cannot move or attack.
    • Attack orders behave like move orders during disarms, Keyboard White Mouse Right Right Click on an enemy sets a new location as well.
    • Reduces Snapfire's turn rate to 0.15 while launching globs.
  • The location for the globs can be changed with a move order (Keyboard White Mouse Right Right Click or M).
    • The destination for each glob is marked with a red circle indicator, which is visible to allies only.
    • Although the ability reduces Snapfire's turn rate while active, the globs are launched where the order was targeted, they are not launched based on facing angle.
  • Each glob deals the impact damage and leaves a lava puddle behind. The puddles last 3 seconds.
    • The puddles apply the debuff on enemies in 0.5-second intervals, starting immediately as they are created, resulting in 7 instances.
    • The debuff lasts 1 second, and deals 30/40/50 damage in 0.5-second intervals, starting immediately upon being placed, resulting in 3 instances.
    • Multiple instances of the debuff do not stack.
    • Since Upgradable by Aghanim's Shard. Firesnap Cookie icon Firesnap Cookie, Spit Out icon Spit Out and Mortimer Kisses use the same modifer, they do not stack, with the damage from the first applied debuff taking priority.
  • A single glob can deal a total of 450/630/810 (Talent 510/690/870) damage, considering impact damage, and standing within the puddle for the full duration (before reductions).
  • Provides 275 radius flying vision at the current targeted location for the globs, lasting until Mortimer stops launching projectiles.
  • The projectiles provide a 500 radius flying vision as they travel. This vision lingers for 3.5 seconds at the impact area.
  • Leveling up Mortimer Kisses does not update the impact damage of already launched globs.
    • However, the lava puddles are updated to apply the debuff with the current value.
    • Already placed debuffs are not updated to the current values.

Trivia[]

  • Snapfire is likely based on early concepts of a unreleased hero "Mortar Team" developed during the DotA era.
  • ▶️ "Say hello to my little friend!" is a reference to Tony Montana's line from the movie "Scarface".
    • In a way, this is also a reference to Huskar minimap icon Huskar's line from original DotA, as he used Troll Headhunter's voice lines which contains the same reference as well.
  • ▶️ "I love the smell of black powder in the morning" is a reference to Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore's line from "Apocalypse Now ".
  • Snapfire's voice actress, "Laraine Newman", was a character in the 1993 movie "Coneheads", which explain the responses to Dark Seer minimap icon Dark Seer as references to said movie.
