Gangplank Counters

Learn 's counters and discover matchups where they have an advantage! When you're starting a game of League of Legends you should always keep in mind if you'll be at an advantage or disadvantage against your opponent, so you can know whether to bully them or play safe. You can find detailed breakdowns of each matchup on CounterStats, and you can also check out some Gangplank guides to see how to build and play against other champions you may find yourself up against!


This counter data is for Gangplank Top in Plat+ games. The percent shown is the enemy champion's counter rating against Gangplank. Counter rating is our own statistic that factors in counter kills, overall kills, early lead ratio, comeback ratio, and win percent to give the whole picture of that champion's effectiveness as a counter pick.

Gangplank's melee attacks ignite the target, dealing an additional 55 - 310 (+1.0 bonus attack damage and +200% critical strike chance) true damage (depending on level) over 2.5 seconds and granting Gangplank 15 − 30% movement speed (depending on level) for 2 seconds.

Destroying a Power Keg refreshes this cooldown and grants Gangplank the same movement speed.

Gangplank can spend Silver Serpents in the shop to upgrade Cannon Barrage.

Gangplank places a powder keg that can be attacked by Gangplank and enemy champions for 25 seconds. When an enemy destroys it, the keg is defused. When Gangplank destroys it, it explodes, slowing by 30 / 37.5 / 45 / 52.5 / 60% (+0.25% per 1% Crit Chance) for 2 seconds and dealing the attack's damage, ignoring 40% armor. Champions take an additional 75 / 105 / 135 / 165 / 195 physical damage.

Keg health decays every 2 / 1 / 0.5 seconds. Keg explosions detonate other kegs with overlapping blast zones, but don't deal damage to the same target more than once. Keg explosions triggered by Parrrley will grant the bonus gold for targets killed.

Gangplank signals his ship to fire 12 waves of cannonballs anywhere on the map over 8 seconds. Each wave slows by 30% for 0.5 seconds and deals 40 / 70 / 100 (+10% of ability power) magic damage.

This ability can be upgraded in the shop via Parrrley.
