Threats & Synergies
huge auto range and since Kog is very squishy her poke can make lane very tough.
The reason Draven is such a big threat is because of his ridiculous amount of damage, his late game crits can chunk you for 1/2 of your health.
With his popular blue build he can be a very tough opponent after a few items.
For me personally i find that i only have a problem with Jinx because of her ultimate.
Very mobile and scary if fed, i find this to be one of if not the hardest lane opponent for Kog'Maw.
Miss Fourtune is a bully in lane and has a way better early game compared to Kog'Maw
Most Tristana players are focused on wave clearing and objectives, that being said she does have pretty good burst.
Twitch is a tough match up for you because of his poison and invisibility, because he can show up out of seemingly nowhere you need a very quick reaction time.
A good Vayne will make you wish you went in a different lane, this one is a skill match up more than anything else
Jhin is not very high on the threat list because just like Kog'Maw his early game is pretty weak, though late game he is a monster
+ Very high damage output after just a few items.
+ Has the ability melts tanks because Q does %Max Health
+ When your W is active you do mixed damage(Hard to itemize against Kog'Maw)
|If someone tried to all in you when your at full health press the holy W Bio-Arcane Barrage button|
- Weaker early game compared to other ADC champions
- Easily bullied out by champions like Caitlyn, Lucian and Miss Fortune
- Gets absolutely demolished my Assassins like Talon and Zed
|Even though your W Bio-Arcane Barrage is a amazing ability it cant really save you from people like Talon and Zed in the early game especially before you get Guinsoo's Rageblade|
I know that Kog's Q Caustic Spittle is bad until later in the game, i only take it at lvl 4 because it helps take down tanks like Alistar and Thresh but even still it is situational.
The reason you want to rush Guinsoo's Rageblade is because of the passive on it which (just in case you don't know) causes you to do magic damage after your 8th consecutive auto within the last X seconds, because of this passive you are actually able t trade with people much better and makes you lane a lot easier as well (considering you are still in laning phase when you buy it.)
Teleport- I like Teleport over Heal because of the presence it gives
Heal- I Personally don't take Heal simply because i find that Kog'Maw needs the presence Teleport gives instead of extra life in lane, especially when i have a support like Sona, Soraka or Alistar
