Corki is known as the Bold Bomber in League of Legends; unlike other shooters, the damage he can do is mostly not caused by his basic attacks, but rather by his spells and abilities, which if combined with good support can harass his enemies a lot; especially with his definitive «Missile Flush» which allows him to attack from a good distance and constantly, if you don’t know how to play this champion don’t worry, because here you’ll find everything you need to count Corki and win the line.

Tips for playing against a Corki

  • Beware of Corki’s projectiles; which have a spatter effect and can do damage even if you position yourself behind minions.
  • If corki uses his Valkyrie or Special Delivery the «W» to enter combat; it will be the best time to focus on him as he will become very vulnerable and will have no escape.
  • It is important to check if this aviator runs out of mana; as he basically runs out of fuel for his skills.
  • Try to use shooters with a good attack range; in such a way that you can attack every time you have the chance, the ideal would be to fight in confrontations where Corki has a little less life than you; since this bomber can do a lot of damage in a short time, if you have good reflexes to dodge his «Q» you will have more opportunities; if you find it very difficult to beat this champion use one of the following characters.

    Counter champions of a Corki

    If you want to win a match against corki you can use these champions; in most cases you would win your battles, however the role of the supports will be very important and can also be definitive when fighting:

    Caitlyn

    With Caitlyn’s great rank, you’ll be able to gossip quietly without being harassed by Corki’s powers; even every time you get the passive «Headshot» take the opportunity to give the aviator a critic and gradually diminish his life.

    Draven

    If it bothers you to have Corki lower your whole life with his powers; you can lower his life with a few axes and with Draven you will achieve it easily, in fact if you pharm well and you get some initial advantage; it will be almost obligatory for the aviator to play defensively, because of the damage that this champion can do.

    Varus

    Another character who can play in distance security is Varus; he can inflict a lot of damage with his «Q’s», even if you have a good caliber support that provides protection; you could play more aggressively than normal to win the line easily.

    Graves

    Finally it’s serious; another champion who can make Corki’s counter easy, you’ll basically play the Bot line normally; but if at any time the aviator decides to throw his Valkyrie towards you, you can practically counteract it with your «W» and blind them, as Corki has little mobility and without his «W» it will take a while to get out of the smoke cloud; long enough for you to end his life.

    Do not let your enemy surpass you in pharming, using these characters will make it difficult to pharm with tranquility, so do not hesitate to use them to win your line, however, if at one point in the game you feel that corki is unstoppable, you can arm some items that make it counter.

    Items (Objects) that counter a Corki

    In the Bot line it is preferable to arm yourself with the standard items that your character requires; but if you want to create an item to make a specific counter to this champion, they would be the following:

    Dance of DeathDance of Death

    The Dance of Death offers you a passive one; which will allow you to absorb a bit of life from the damage you do, this way you will avoid that the harassment that this aviator generates affects you a lot; but if you notice that it is not the best option against the enemy equipment, you can use «Sword of the Ruined King or The Sanguinaria» that offer the same capacity to steal life.

    Height of Thorns

    Against any shooter a Thorn Cota can be key; in most cases the enemy will avoid concentrating his attack on you, as the Cota generates serious injuries and even returns a percentage of the damage he takes.

    The best spells against a Corki
