In this guide I will be showing you how to counter Kog’Maw. This League of Legends champion is one of the most powerful shooters, as they have great damage and very long distance skills, which help him maintain a good position. But here I’ll give you a few tips and recommend a few champions, so you can face Kog’Maw without any problems.
Tips for dealing with Kog’Maw
Counter Champions of Kog’Maw
The following champions are the most recommended, to maintain a good confrontation against Kog’Maw.
This champion I recommend jungle, to be able to campear the line where Kog’Maw is and destroy it. Kog’Maw is a champion without mobility, allowing this champion to reach him with his ultimate and kill him with his great damage. Master Yi’s Q skill can help to dodge Kog’Maw’s passive, as long as he has a place to throw it. Also Yi’s W skill can help him to endure such a passive.
This champion’s abilities can help her reach Kog’Maw and kill him quite easily, as she has a lot of damage against role champions. Irelia’s passive is very good against Kog’Maw, as he can neutralize with his E skill. Irelia’s passive increases the incapacity of enemies and reduces her incapacity, but if they outnumber her, the incapacity for enemies will be greater and much smaller for her.
This is the assassin I highly recommend against Kog’Maw, as he has no displacement, making this an easy prey for Akali. The great magic damage that this champion possesses is quite terrible and besides a good damage, it has a good reach in its ultimate. I recommend it to be able to catch Kog’Maw, since he has a good attack range.
This champion is the ADC I highly recommend against Kog’Maw, as she can face him and maintain a good confrontation. Jinx’s W ability if he succeeds in hitting Kog’Maw, will slow him down and attack quite easily. If Jinx wins a fight against Kog’Maw and may die for his passive, there is no need to fear for that, as Jinx’s passive allows him to gain movement speed with every knockdown, assassination or assistance.
This champion can annoy Kog’Maw on the line, as he won’t be able to dodge Blitzcrank’s Q skill. I recommend this support, as they will be able to freeze the line, so that Kog’Maw cannot kill minions. Also with Blitzcrank you can play quite aggressively against Kog’Maw, since he won’t be able to get out of his claws.
Items (objects) counter of Kog’Maw
The following items have to be used against Kog’Maw, to maintain a better confrontation.
Kog’Maw’s abilities can cause magic damage when they hit enemies, such as his Q, W and R. This item allows the possessor to obtain a magic resistance shield, which withstands 300+1 magic damage, when it reaches -30% of his life.
Heart of Ice
This item reduces the attack speed of nearby enemies by 5%. Kog’Maw’s W ability and his items may increase his attack speed, but with this item it would be reduced a bit, so that he doesn’t cause so much damage in a short time.
Kog’Maw’s skills are quite long distance and that can help him kill an enemy from a good area. But here I recommend this object, to be immunized when Kog’Maw tries to kill you.
