Vel'Koz counter tips

General advice on how to play against Vel'Koz
These champs are weak against Vel'Koz at most phases of the game. They’re listed based on their win rate against Vel'Koz.
Laning Against Vel'Koz

Laning Against Vel'Koz

Try your hardest to dodge Vel’koz Plasma FissionQ’s in lane. Invest in early Boots if you’re struggling to dodge this ability.

As soon as he channels his Ultimate Life Form Disintegration RayR, either disengage, CC him or commit to the all-in. Hard CC will interrupt his Ultimate Life Form Disintegration RayR, but roots do not.

After Vel’koz has a few points in his Plasma FissionQ, he’s damage output is going to be high. Make sure you’re always near the minion wave so you can run into it if needed.

Strategy VS Vel'Koz

Strategy VS Vel'Koz

Force team fights as soon as possible: preferably when his Ultimate Life Form Disintegration RayR is on cooldown. Do not delay a team fight as it will allow him to poke your team down with his Plasma FissionQ and Void RiftW.

Avoid team fighting or forcing objectives like the Baron or Dragon when Vel’koz is alive and nearby. He has great poke thanks to his Plasma FissionQ, Void RiftW and Life Form Disintegration RayR which will make it difficult for your team to secure the objective easily.

Avoid fighting in chokepoints like inside the jungle as it will give Vel’koz an easier time landing his Tectonic DisruptionE, doing damage with his Void RiftW and melting your team with his Ultimate Life Form Disintegration RayR.

Vel'Koz Power Spikes

Vel'Koz Power Spikes

Vel’koz first major power spike is once he hits level 6 as his Ultimate Life Form Disintegration RayR offers him tons of kill pressure.

Vel’koz is really good in team fights thanks to the poke and AOE damage from his abilities. Try to fight when he is not there or when his Ultimate Life Form Disintegration RayR is down.

Once Vel’koz has a couple of points in Plasma FissionQ, he will deal a lot of damage to you if he is able to land them consistently. Stand near the minion wave to make it easier for you to dodge the Plasma FissionQ’s.
