Guide to Countering Nidalee as Blitzcrank

Tips for Playing as Blitzcrank against Nidalee

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 Nidalee

Nidalee's Javelin Toss deals more damage the farther she is. If she is far away, it's imperative to dodge it.

Nidalee's Hunt debuff is only applied with Javelin Toss and Bushwhack. Avoiding being hit by these abilities will impair her ability to deal follow-up damage.

Nidalee's Takedown deals extreme damage to Hunted targets, but she has to get close to use it. Save your crowd control or defensive abilities for when she goes in for the kill.
