Guide to Countering Braum as Cho'Gath

Tips for Playing as Cho'Gath against Braum

If you're having difficulty feasting upon champions, try eating minions until you're larger.

Try to line up your attacks with Vorpal Spikes so that they kill minions and harass enemy champions at the same time.

Using Rupture on creeps in combination with Carnivore is a good way to gain Health and Mana.

Advice to Win Against Braum

Unbreakable gives Braum extremely strong directional defense, either wait until it is down or outposition the ability.

Braum must land Winter's Bite or a basic attack to start Concussive Blows. If you get marked, exit combat range before getting hit 3 more times to avoid the stun.

Braum's ultimate has a long cast time, use that extra time to dodge. Walking over the frozen ground left behind will slow you, position so that you don't need to cross it.
