Farshot is an artillery marksman hero in HoK, which means he has long range and deals damage from far away; therefore, you must build him in a abit differently than other Farm Laners. Start building him with Boots of Tranquility, as Cooldown is necessary because you rely on your skillshots more than auto attacks.
After that, go for Axe of Torment, as it is the best item against squishy targets and matches well with your skill 1st if you can land it on any squishy heroes. Then select Siege Breaker. Your skill 1st is a physical scaling ability, so having more physical attacks in your kit means you are dealing lots of damage through it.
After that, go for armor penetration because you can’t do much damage to tanks if you don’t break their armor.
Consecutively, go for doomsday because this item enhances the build of Farshot to kill tanks in the late game. Finally, pick defensive items such as sage’s sanctuary or succubus cloak. If there are magical dealing heroes, you can go for Succubus Cloak; otherwise, Sage’s Sanctuary is the best idea.

Farshot is weak to assassins and other heroes who can dodge his first skill. Although he can deal massive damage from a distance, he is very immobile and easy to catch, so always look for where he’s singing his first skill and try to flank him. Here are some heroes who can easily counter Farshot in Honor of Kings:
|Juniper can deny the burst damage from Baili Shouyue with her 2nd skill.|
|Lam can easily flank him and one-shot him if he catches him in the game.|
|Monkey King can deny the second skill damage of Farshot with his first skill and can easily kill him with one-shot, especially during late games.|
Smith & Blade
|If Smith and Blade get a good angle on Baili Shouyue, she can easily counter him as he doesn’t have much mobility.|
|Mai, a mage, can also counter Farshot if she can catch her off guard.|
|Farshot is weak against Li Bai, as Li can dodge 1st Ability from this MM if he times his skills well.|
|Lady Sun is a strong marksman against Farshot in HoK and can counter him smoothly thanks to her 1st skill.|
|This support hero can soak most of the damage from this shooter hero when he is in his ult, and he can also body block his 2nd skill to save his teammates.|
