Threats & Synergies
This is blitzcrank's hardest counter, his best tool is his Q and morgana's spell shield completely negates any attempts to use it.
Zyra is a threat for pretty much the same reasons as brand, just better and more painful for blitzcrank
Brand is a pretty big threat to blitz as his poke and zoning keeps blitzcrank from being able to set up his hooks while also dealing massive damage to blitz
Yuumi does fairly well against blitz as she can easily heal away the intital all in attempts, just never try to hook yuumi and focus entirely on the adc and you'll be fine.
Nami does terrible against blitzcrank, while she can poke you, she has absolutely no way to escape the all in attempts.
Alistar and Blitzcrank do a lot of the same things but while alistar is tankier, blitzcrank has more kill potential, it is often decided by the adc on who comes on top
Bard my not have a lot of escape tools, but his stun and his ult can negate your all in attempts and his damage can put you in a really bad spot.
Braum's shield does nothing to protect him from your hooks. Braum has very little ability to escape and the only thing to watch out for is his slows and stuns
NEVER HOOK GALIO WHILE HE'S CHARGING HIS W. It will taunt both you and your adc, and secure both your deaths.
While Heimerdinger support is not that good, Heimerdinger ADC is a terrifying threat to blitz as he can and will poke you out of lane and block your hooks with his turrets.
When playing against Janna, you'll want to bully her before level 6, after level 6 she can negate your hooks with her ult.
The only thing you have to watch out for with karma is her poke, she has no way to escape your all in's so she almost always loses.
Leona is really strong right now as she doesn't take a lot of damage and she can throw your cc straight back at you.
Lulu has no way to escape your cc, the only thing you have to watch out for is her polymorph and her ult, which will cc you and make you very vulnerable.
Lux is rediculously squishy and once you hook her, it is very hard for her to live without good peel.
Nautilus has a slightly longer cc train than you but once you take out his adc, there's nothing he can do.
Pyke deals very minimal damage to you as your tankiness negates his lethality, you should watch out for his hook and his ult though as those can secure a death.
If Rakan is with Xayah, he can very easily escape your cc and fire straight back with his own, the main thing that makes this even is that he is very squishy.
While Senna may be squishy, her cc and her damage output are completely ridiculous and you should make sure to watch out for her poke
Sona's lack of mobility and low amount of cc make her a prime hook target.
Soraka loses against blitz for the same reasons as sona but her heals are stronger, making it harder to kill the adc.
Swain's amount of poke and lifesteal make him a terrifying champion to play against, after level 6 you lose almost every fight no matter what.
If Taric notices your hook before it hits him, he can easily stun you and use his ult to make him invincible.
Blitz and Thresh do essentially the same thing, neither of them really can get a better lead. It all comes down to who is the better player
Vayne is a good adc to have with blitzcrank, as long as you try to hook the enemy near a wall, you can get a cc train going that will end in their death.
Varus does incredible with blitz as not only does his ult lock people in place, making it easier to hit a hook, but his early game strength matches blitzcrank's
Tristana's early game damage, coupled with her ability to all in, perfectly compliments blitzcrank's all in potential and power.
