Aphelios Matchups Overview

Aphelios General information

Aphelios tips and tricks

Keep an eye on your ammo and what weapon you’re holding. Don’t get caught out with the wrong weapon in a trade!

When laning against a melee champion, switch PhaseW to Severum when they engage. The bonus movement speed and rapid-fire from your main and side weapons will focus the nearest champion while you retreat.

Hitting level 2 first is key on Aphelios. To hit level 2, you need to kill the first 9 minions in the bottom lane. When you’re level 2, you could look to engage and go for a favourable trade.
