In this guide I will be showing you how to counter Warwick. This League of Legends champion is quite good, as he has a lot of damage and healing that helps him a lot in a 1vs1 fight. Warwick’s passive is pretty good for a melee. But here I’ll show you how to counter Warwick.

Tips for dealing with Warwick

  • Use champions with mobility. This helps dodge Warwick’s ultimate and move away from him for his passive.
  • You need CC. The CC helps a lot so that Warwick can’t heal with his basic attacks, as he’ll be stunned and won’t be able to attack.
  • Don’t be left with little life on the line. Warwick’s W skill increases the movement speed that could reach you in no time.

    The following champions are the most recommended to face Warwick.


    The champion I recommend most to a 1vs1 fight against Warwick is Olaf. This champion has a very good passive and a great final skill, which helps a lot to face Warwick. Olaf’s passive increases his attack speed by +1% for every % of life he lacks. Olaf’s ultimate avoids Warwick’s ability E and R, as he gains immunity.


    This champion can stop and escape Warwick in any situation. If Warwick catches a Skarner ally with his Ultimate, he only activates his E or R to stun Warwick and cancel his Ultimate. Also Skarner can gain movement speed when he activates his W, this can help him escape Warwick.


    This champion makes a great counter to Warwick, as she can neutralize Warwick and save her allies and herself from her claws. Warwick won’t be able to reach her targets very easily, as Kayle’s Q slows the movement speed. Also Kayle’s definitive ability can save his allies if Warwick catches him with his R, as it makes the possessor immune for a moment.


    This champion is the ADC I highly recommend against Warwick. Tristana can defend herself from Warwick every time she uses her skills at the right time. If you see Warwick launch his ultimate I recommend you throw the R as fast as you can before he catches you. You can also dodge Warwick’s R if you use the W in a safe area.


    If you don’t know what support to use against Warwick, I recommend Janna. This champion can stop Warwick’s ultimate with her Q and R. Janna’s Q can cancel Warwick’s ultimate and the R takes Warwick out and prevents Warwick from gaining movement speed by healing his allies. Also Janna’s W slows the movement speed, this can help Warwick stay away.

    Warwick counter items

    The following items have to be used to face Warwick.


    ZhonyasThis object immunizes the champion who owns it when activated. This object is very necessary for the magicians papers, because if Warwick catches them they can die. This item has to be used when Warwick launches his ultimate.

    Call of the Executioner

    This item gives serious injuries to champions who are hit by the one who owns it. Warwick’s passive is quite good, as he earns robbery of life every time he is below half his life. With serious injuries you reduce his healing by half.

    Heart of Ice

    This object decreases by 5% the attack speed of enemies who hit the owner. Warwick when he sees his target below half-life gains attack speed. I recommend this item to face Warwick.

    Mercury Fajin

    This item removes any CC that has touched the champion that owns it when activated. I recommend this item if you are a murderer or ADC, as if Warwick catches you you could die and lose the game.
