Cavern Crawl Guide | TI 10 Battle Pass | Dota 2

The Battle Pass is back with its legendary grinding map - The Cavern Crawl! This year it's back with two maps instead of one - Nightsilver and Foulfell.

The basic aim of players is to crawl through the maze-like cavern by completing games using a specific hero mentioned. Each room can be unlocked by playing that hero. Once a room is unlocked you are rewarded and given multiple new paths to other rooms. Stay tuned for a comprehensive list of tips and tricks on how to complete these maps efficiently and gain those spectacular rewards!

Introduction to Cavern Crawl
Introduction to Cavern Crawl

You stumble upon a hero. There are two ways of defeating it without using any help.

  1. Play and win a Normal All-pick or Ranked match.
  2. Play and win two Turbo matches.

You will face multiple obstacles such as:

  1. Chasm - It will block your path, and cannot be crossed.
  2. Fractal Mirror - It blocks your path but can be shattered.
  3. Mystery Challenge.

Consumable tools found on the way:

  1. Sacred Arrow - It can be used in shattering Fractal Mirrors.
  2. Rocket Flare - These can be used to scout unexplored rooms.
