SlowThe most common form of CC, Slow effect reduces the target's Movement Speed by a certain percent, up to 90%. Most heroes in the game possess some form of Slow effect.
Heroes that are stunned cannot move, use their basic attack or use skills. Stun effect can last from less than 1 second to 2 whole seconds. Some examples are Eudora's Electric Arrow, Rafaela's Holy Baptism or Gord's Mystic Projectile. People that can stun include:
A form of CC that prevents the enemy from moving, locking them in place. It does not prevent them from using Basic Attack or skills except for most Blink skills or other movement abilities. Heroes with this type of CC include:
A special form of CC that forces affected targets to get close to the caster and use Basic Attacks against them. The only heroes with this form of CC are:
A form of CC that prevents the target from using skills, without hindering Movement or Basic Attacks. The only characters that can inflict Silence effect are:

- Time Controlled Reduction (like Tough Boots).
Heroes that can use this form of CC are:
Knock Up / Airborne
A type of CC that launches the target in the air, preventing them from moving or attacking for a few moments, and can be removed using the "Purify" Battle Spell or other skills that clear CC effects. Several characters have knock up / airborne effects, including:
A form of displacement CC that displaces an enemy by dragging them towards the caster or towards a designated location.
Some forms of Pull will have a continuous effect over time while others will pull the targets only once. Most Pull skills have AoE effect, except for Franco's Iron Hook , Minsitthar's Spear of Glory and Diggie's Reverse Time, which can only pull a single enemy.
Heroes that can pull enemies towards themselves include:
Heroes that can pull enemies towards a location include:
A form of CC that displaces an enemy by knocking them away from the caster or pushing them in the same direction that the caster is traveling. Knock Back distance ranges from barely noticeable, such as Balmond's Soul Lock or Hilda's Art Of Hunting, to very long distances, such as Chou's The Way Of Dragon or Valir's Searing Torrent, and even slightly knock enemies in the air, such as Bane's Deadly Catch or Lesley's Tactical Grenade. Independently from its strenght, Knock Back is a form of istantaneous CC that will stop enemy heroes from casting skills by very briefly stunning them, but won't usually have lasting effects.
Heroes that can inflict Knock Back includes:
Unique types of CC that are only exclusive to one hero in the game.

FreezeSimilar to stun, this Crowd Control makes a target unable to move, cast skills, or Basic Attack - however, this Crowd Control is not affected by any Time Controlled Reduction stats.
- Fanny is the only hero who does not have any form of crowd control, not even slow.
- Alucard has a unique interaction with the Silence effect: due to his Passive, that lets him move closer to a target with his Basic Attack after using a skill (counts as a skill), when affected by Silence, Alucard will be unable to use Basic Attacks.
- Jawhead is the only hero in the game who can inflict CC on his allies, by using his second skill Ejector.
- Allies can prevent this effect by buying Odd Potion.
