Welcome to my Kog'Maw guide!

Who am I?
My name is Avxm or you may know me as "German KogMaw" and I am a high elo Kog'Maw one trick who has played in both NA and EUW. I have peaked rank 1 Kog'Maw in the world with on numerous sites (,,, etc) and can always hit it easily whenever I put in the time to do so.

Why read my guide?
With this guide I hope to show you all how I hit 90% winrate masters one tricking Kog'Maw, and how I reached grandmasters 530lp in 200 games so that way you can do the same and find major success playing Kog'Maw.

Too lazy to read?
If you do not wish to spend the time reading the remainder of this guide, you can always come talk to me on my stream at where I am currently attempting to climb to challenger with Kog'Maw only.

This remainder of this guide will be split into the following different sections:
1) My credentials for teaching you Kog'Maw
2) What is Kog'Maw's champion identity?
3) When is Kog'Maw good/bad? (all matchups)
4) Tips and tricks to succeed with Kog'Maw
5) How to climb with Kog'Maw at all ranks

2) What is Kog'Maw's champion identity?
Kog'Maw is a high-range onhit adc capable of some of the highest dps possible in league of legends. Kog'Maw is a hypercarry that can kill an entire team in the blink of an eye through the use of his strongest spell Bio-Arcane Barrage whenever he is allowed uptime during a fight. The reason Kog'Maw] is able to output so much damage is due to an interaction between Bio-Arcane Barrage and its synergy with Guinsoo's Rageblade. The percentage health magic damage from Bio-Arcane Barrage is an on-hit affect which can be procced 2 times instead of once every 3rd auto attack with Guinsoo's Rageblade once the item is stacked. This makes it extremely difficult to itemize defensively to survive against a Kog'Maw and makes him one of the best, if not the best tank killer in league of legends.

Kog'Maw excels especially when paired with enchanters that help keep him alive and allow him to force his dps. The most common examples of these enchanters that help Kog'Maw excel are Lulu , and Milio.

However, Kog'Maw is one of the most immobile and easy to kill champions in the game, as he has no real way to defend himself other then his massive raw dps output and lategame itemization. Kog'Maw lacks proper cc, movespeed, and many other essential things to help adc's survive their biggest threats.

The removal of Lethal Tempo has also hit Kog'Maw quite hard as your itemization has become much more limited due to the amount of attackspeed you can stack becoming more and more restricted, however I have found ways to work around this, ways which are shared within this guide.

Still want to learn Kog'Maw? If so, continue reading :)
3) When is Kog'Maw good/bad?
Kog'Maw thrives primarily into melee champs with low mobility, low range champs, and bruisers/tanks. Bio-Arcane Barrage gives you an 8 second timer to put out massive dps from very high range. However, as strong as Bio-Arcane Barrage is, it is essentially 80% of Kog'Maw's power which is a good and bad thing. This means when you are able to get full value out of it, it can be one of the most broken spells in the game, however if the enemy team is mobile or can prevent you from properly dps'ing with Bio-Arcane Barrage you become very vulnerable

This is why Kog'Maw does best into melee champs with low mobility, low range champs, and bruisers/tanks. These type of champs cannot easily escape Kog'Maw and unlike most adcs which take alot longer to kill a tanky champion compared to a non tanky champion, for the most part Kog'Maw essentially kills tanky champions almost as fast as non tanky champions, making Kog'Maw what I like to call the bane of all toplaners

The video below explains how kog functions into EVERY CHAMPION IN LEAGUE OF LEGENDS, including which champions Kog'Maw completely counters, and which champions completely counter Kog'Maw. It is primarily for those who are curious about any specific matchups that were not previously listed in this guide. A shorter more detailed video will also be coming soon with proper timestamps for all champions, however for now this has most of the information you will ever need on all of Kog'Maw's matchups. Whether you want to learn how to play Kog'Maw into certain champions, or how to beat Kog'Maw as a certain champion, this video is for you.
