Mobile Legends: Bang Bang unable to use Argus Ultimate when suppressed a nerf & not a bug, says forum mod

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is a popular MOBA game available on both Android as well as iOS, offering an experience similar to League of Legends. Developed and published by Moonton, is built using the Unity engine.

Over the years, Mobile Legends has gained massive popularity and now has more than 1 billion downloads with more than 100 million players worldwide. But as is the case with most video games, players do come across some bugs.


A few weeks ago, many iPad users complained about low-quality graphics that made the game look pixelated and unplayable.

And now, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang players are reporting a bug (1,2,3,4,5) that is preventing a hero called Argus from using his ultimate when suppressed.

In case you are unaware, Argus is a hero that can use his ultimate to become immortal for 3 seconds even when suppressed or crowd controlled. But now the bug is making unpopular him in both high and low elo.

Many are now wondering if this is a bug or an intentional change since the developers mentioned nothing in the patch notes.


This bug is easy to replicate so I have no video to showcase it. It randomly popped up some patches ago and has not been fixed to this day. As an Argus Main, fighting Champions like Franco and Kaja is nearly impossible now so I would be happy if you could forward this, Tigrael. Cheers!

I posted the same thing 3 weeks ago and yesterday, still no response…. I hope this just a bug and not a secret nerf, cuz otherwise I will be piss about it . But thanks for putting this, maybe if we put this thing multiple times we will get an answer

Thankfully, a forum moderator has shed some light on the issue concerning Argus ultimate and clarified that it is in fact a recent change that wasn’t mentioned in the announcement. They also said that it will be added in the description in the near future.

When Argus is suppressed, his ult cannot be cast. It is changed recently. But it is not mentioned in the announcement. The description will be added in the future.

It looks like Argus players are now angry with the changes since being able to activate his ultimate anytime was the main reason they used him in the first place.

We hope Mobile Legends: Bang Bang developers listen to their player base and revert the changes made to Argus ultimate in a future update.
