Mobile Legends launches new hero for MENA

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, a mobile multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) developed and published by Moonton, has launched a new Middle Eastern hero on the occasion of Eid Al-Adha. Khaleed, also known as the Desert Scimitar, has been available for purchase since July 31 and will join the virtual battlefield on Aug. 7.
Wearing armor and equipped with a sharp sword, Khaleed demonstrates the temperament of the desert warrior. He has three distinct skills that he uses to tackle his enemies.
The first is called Desert Tornado, which sees Khaleed leap into the air and spin around with his weapon. If he is able to hit a hero, he can dash toward that hero’s direction and use Desert Tornado again.
The skill can be used up to three times. The second skill, called Quicksand Guard, harnesses the power of sand to give Khaleed regenerating capabilities and a reduction in damage. When used, heroes advancing toward Khaleed will be slowed significantly. The third skill is called Raging Sandstorm, where Khaleed summons a sandstorm at the designated location.
Enemies in the direction of the sandstorm will be knocked back. Meanwhile, those who are at the landing spot will be heavily damaged.
Additionally, his passive ability is called Sand Walk. When moving, Khaleed is able to accumulate sand, and when the meter is full, he will begin gliding on the map. When active, he has increased movement speed and damage.
