Graves Counters

Learn Graves' 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 Graves guides to see how to build and play against other champions you may find yourself up against!


This counter data is for Graves Jungle in Plat+ games. The percent shown is the enemy champion's counter rating against Graves. 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.

Graves' basic attack fires a cone of 4 bullets which stop on the first unit hit. The first bullet on a target deals 0.7 - 1 total AD (based on level) physical damage, with subsequent bullets dealing a third of that damage per bullet. Structures take 25% reduced damage from Graves' basic attacks.

Graves stores two Shells at any time and expends them when he basic attacks. After using them, Graves reloads, delaying his next basic attack significantly. Graves' reload time is slightly reduced by attack speed, but the time between attacks is greatly reduced by attack speed.

Upon critically striking, Graves fires 6 bullets over a 25% wider cone and deals 20% bonus physical damage (60% with Infinity Edge).

After 1 second or after colliding with terrain, it detonates, dealing 85 / 120 / 155 / 190 / 225 (+0.4 / 0.7 / 1.0 / 1.3 / 1.6 per bonus attack damage) physical damage along the travel path again and to enemies near the blast.

Graves dashes and reloads one Shell into his shotgun. He also gains a stack for 4 seconds (max 8 stacks) or two stacks if he dashes towards an enemy champion. Stacks grant him 4 / 7 / 10 / 13 / 16 armor. Stacks are refreshed when damaging a non-minion.

Each bullet hit from Graves' attacks reduces this ability's cooldown by 0.5 seconds.

After hitting an enemy champion or reaching the end of its range, the cartridge explodes outward, dealing 200 / 320 / 440 (+1.2 per bonus attack damage) physical damage.
