With no real good way to escape a Blitzcrank when caught, Kog’Maw can’t escape without a lot of help. Once Blitzcrank hooks a Kog’Maw, the ADC should all-in on him (be aware of the enemy support).


Lucian’s mobility gives him the edge over Kog’Maw. Combine this with your burst and you can easily dodge Kog’Maw’s skill shots and deal sufficient damage to him during trades.


With no real escape, Ashe makes it difficult for Kog’Maw to run away after initiating a trade due to her passive slow. Use this to your advantage when engaging Kog’Maw.

  • Run away from Kog’Maw’s corpse as it will explode shortly dealing a lot of true damage.
  • Try to monitor Kog’Maw’s W cooldown as he loses a lot of range when it is down.
