Smite Down: Medusa the Gorgon

medusa-art-1Soon the gods in Smite will be frozen in stone as they gaze upon the face of the Gorgon herself, Medusa. That’s right one of the more famous Greek deities, Medusa will join the battlegrounds of Smite, and she’s set to add to the hunter class.

I personally feel like she should have been a mage, but I don’t work for Hi Rez, yet. With her potential to be a nuisance, because of her poison ability, Medusa might be a top pick and ban in ranked matches. A rather unique thing about Medusa is her passive that allows her to have no movement penalty when strafing sideways.

It’s going to┬ábe interesting to see how players use her. I cant wait to use her myself. For more info on Medusa check the details out below. She’s set to be released in the near future.




Medusa suffers no movement penalty when side strafing and half of the movement penalty when moving backwards.

1st Ability VIPER SHOT

Medusa shoots out vipers in rapid succession that poisons the targets hit dealing damage over time.

2nd Ability ACID SPRAY

Medusa hurls back and spits out acid that slows the attack speed of the first target hit and sprays out acid in a cone behind them dealing damage to every enemy hit.

3rd Ability LACERATE

Medusa quickly slithers forward grabbing and slashing the first enemy she gets to. The slash leaves the enemy reeling in pain, reducing their healing for a short time.

Ultimate PETRIFY

Medusa removes her mask revealing her true face, delivering a powerful blast from her horriying Gorgon gaze. Enemies take damage and are stunned if they are looking at Medusa. Enemies not looking at Medusa take half damage and are slowed.
