Cho'Gath Matchups Overview

Cho'Gath General information

Cho'Gath tips and tricks

Use your RuptureQ slightly behind the enemy rather than on their current location to make it harder for them to dodge it.

Wait for the marker before pressing your Ultimate FeastR. Don’t use it unless the marker appears.

Whenever your RuptureQ or Feral ScreamW is up, don’t automatically use either one of them unless you’re certain that the enemy isn’t a threat to you. Otherwise, the enemy may wait for you to use either one of these abilities and then play aggressive while it’s on cooldown.
