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


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

This effect stacks up to 8 times for a maximum of 28-88% bonus attack speed (depending on level) and will still stack if the attack is dodged or missed due to blind.

Stacks fall off one at a time every 0.25 seconds after not attacking for 2.5 seconds.

This spell deals 20% (up to a maximum of 100%) increased damage for each attack dodged. Jax has the option to activate the ability again after 1 second to end the effect early.
