    There are no abilities involved at all.

    1. Set number of targets for attack to number of bounces that should occur.
    2. Set splash radius to the distance the bounces can go.
    3. Set attack type to missile (bounce) or along those lines.

    You forgot to add extra information to make the bounce to work

    Combat - Attack 1 - Area of Effect (Full Damage): This is the AOE for the bounce to go and search for enemy units

    Combat - Attack 1 - Area of Effect Targets: Tick the boxes same as your Combat - Attack 1 - Targets Allowed

    By the way I think it's Spill Radius, not Splash

    In DotA, Lanaya The Templar Assassin uses this kind of attack

    It's not a bounce attack, but a spill, more like a Cleaving ability but for Ranged Units

    It's two different thing

    I thought that was implied when I said set the splash radius. Let us not forget he could compare the settings of the Huntress.

    The thing he wants is bouncing projectiles which are used by Luna in DotA. Also Lanaya does not use Spill radius, her attack is triggered.

    @OP: Just compare your settings to the melee Huntress.

    I was comparing between Spill and Bounce

    It does not even require any upgrade, just follow the setting of my post and DSG's post
    You will get your unit to start with Bouncing attack, instead upgrading a research or whatever
    I usually run a test first in the World Editor before giving false statement.

    NOTE: He never mentioned want it an upgrade, he wants his Hero to attack bounce, that's all.
