Tips For Playing Against Urgot

  • Save your dash/jump ability for when he throws out his grenade.
  • Urgot is weaker when his passive legs are on cooldown and his Q misses.
  • Urgot is first and foremost, a juggernaut. He is durable and can deal tons of damage if he can close the distance, but if kept at arms length, he will eventually go down.
  • Urgot wants to go toe-to-toe with an enemy; his knee cannons can wreak havoc once he’s up close and can unleash them all. He uses Disdain to engage, but remember, it has a short delay and can be juked.
  • Urgot’s ranged auto-attacks and Echoing Flames gives him significant poke against melee top laners, but his legs are on a long cooldown early game. Without any built-in sustain, that poke is his only way of winning attrition wars.
  • Urgot’s legs don’t rotate when he turns, so he’ll have to maneuver around his opponents to make the most of Echoing FlamesDisdain helps Urgot take advantage of those trickshot back shotgun legs and make the most of this damage, while Purge helps him proc his passive multiple times in rapid succession (but slows Urgot’s movement). Position carefully to avoid damage from all six legs.
  • In general Urgot‘s main combo is to initiate with Disdain and/or Corrosive Charge, immediately use Purge while locked on, then activate Corrosive Charge and/or Fear Beyond Death to finish them off. Keep this in mind and come up with a counter plan.
  • Corrosive Charge is a decent harass tool, but it consumes mana quickly if spammed, and the slow is best used to catch fleeing enemies. Monitor his mana and use of the ability to know when to engage or escape.
