Guide to Countering Jax as Blitzcrank

Tips for Playing as Blitzcrank against Jax

The 1-2-3 combo of Rocket Grab, Power Fist, and Static Field can devastate an individual opponent.

Using Blitzcrank's grab to pull an enemy into your tower range followed by a Power Fist will allow the tower to get several hits on them.

Advice to Win Against Jax

Try to engage him in short bursts instead of going toe-to-toe with him. Preventing him from attacking consecutively drastically lowers his damage output.

Jax can dodge all incoming attacks for a very short amount of time and stuns enemies in melee range when it ends. Wait to strike him until after his dodge is finished.
