Game Mode Duos.png

Duos is a game mode in Dota Underlords where 8 teams of two players fight each other. In this mode teams share the same health and player level. Players can also send heroes and gold to their teammate.



Similar to Standard mode, teams start with 100 health, but damage is dealt according to the following rules:

  • If both players from the same team won the round, the damage is added up and the losing team takes that damage.
    • Example: if a player from Team A deals 9 damage while the other player from Team A deals 7, then the opponent team takes 9 + 7 or 16 damage.
  • If only one player of each team won, the team that did the least damage takes only the difference, while the other team takes no damage.
    • Example: if a player from Team A deals 12 damage while a player from Team B deals 10, then team B takes |12 - 10| or 2 damage.
  • If opposing teams deal the same amount of damage no health is lost.


Player level is shared between both players. Teams gain 2 XP every round.

Hero pool[]

The total number of heroes available in the match is twice as much from Standard.

Sending heroes[]

An area in the shop, below the heroes, shows how many of that hero your teammate has. A hero can be sent to your teammate by: selecting it and pressing the SEND button, by dragging the hero into the button or by pressing the F key on the keyboard. A hero can't be sent to your teammate if they have no room on their bench.

Sending gold[]

Players can send 1 gold to their teammate by pressing the Send 1 gold.png button below the shop.


Win streaks are only granted to players winning rounds while their isn't taking damage. Once the team takes damage, the streak is lost, even if that player never lost a round.
