  • The Meat Hook travels at a speed of 1450.
  • Fully affects invisible units. Can also hit and drag invulnerable units, but won't damage them.
  • The search radius is centered around the hook's tip. Getting close to other parts of the hook has no effect.
  • Can only affects units while extending. Cannot affect any unit while retracting.
  • Cannot hit buildings, wards, couriers, ancient creeps, Roshan, siege creeps, Warlock Warlock's Golem, Primal Split spirits and hidden units.
  • The hook flies through impassable terrain and trees. It also can drag units over them.
  • Hooked enemies are fully disabled for the entire pull duration. However, spell immune or invulnerable enemies are not disabled, and can attack, turn and cast spells or items.
  • Allies are never disabled. They also can freely act while being pulled by the hook.
  • Pudge is disabled during the cast backswing of Meat Hook.
  • Hooking a unit onto impassable terrain gives the unit free pathing for 5 seconds.
  • When the hook hits a unit, it provides 500 radius flying vision at the unit's location upon hit for 4 seconds.

Item Interactions:
  • Spell immune units are dragged and damaged but not disabled.
