I'm not the best, but there is no other guide of Sha Lin (I think). Here are tips to play Discount Hanzo.

Builds
Build Section
Notes

Flicking your crosshair to your opponent is faster than trying to aim directly at them. Great against flanks like Meave or Evie. Use cripple on flanks or supports and use rapid on tanks and damage. Don't ALWAYS withdraw back. Use it to hide behind corners or move behind your opponent.

Level 5

Notes

Sandtrap is stronger than a sniper body shot and makes damage easier to land. It's good for being a blaster, but not amazing compared to recurve in 1 v 1. Silence is great but underused. Shoot then rapid. 1000 plus 2 times 600 deals 2200 damage (you can cancel rapid). Poise actually reduces less movement than wanderlust (since your movement speed is lowered by 10 percent from the bow slow), Plus, wanderlust increases your movement speed while not shooting. Use only 5 poise for corner builds or rapid shot (since it counts as drawing a bow)

Poise 5 helps to shoot and duck behind corners. Wanderlust is better at longer range since it makes you feel slower than it actually is (like a scope!).

Strong Against
CorvusBomb KingEvieMaeveRuckusTorvaldDrogozJenosIoGrohkGroverRaumAndroxus
Notes

You have certain counters to these champs. Supports are not good against silence and cripple. Evie and meave are two shots. Drogoz cannot fly with cripple. Ruckus and Raum need movement to do well. Torvald sucks against wrecker. Bomb king can be silenced so he cannot explode the bombs or stun or poppy. Andro can be hard countered by silenced and cripple.

Weak Against
ZhinSkyeMojiKogaMakoaKhanStrixKinessaTerminus
Notes

Zhin and Koga are the kings of avoiding yo attacks. Skye can surprise you though you can buy illuminate. Moji doesn't need to aim. Moaka, Khan, Term have stuns. Snipers out range and damage you.
