Guide to Countering Jinx as Ekko

Tips for Playing as Ekko against Jinx

If you can proc Z-Drive Resonance on an enemy champion, it's worth taking risks to do so. The bonus Move Speed makes it easy to escape.

Phase Dive's dash is a great tool for setting up Ekko's other abilities. Use it to get double hits with Timewinder or get into position to detonate Parallel Convergence.

Chronobreak is a potent escape tool, but it can also be quite powerful when used offensively. Don't underestimate its damage potential.

Advice to Win Against Jinx

Jinx's ultimate does less damage the closer you are to her.

Jinx's snare grenades have a long cooldown and are her primary means of protecting herself. If she misses with them she will have a hard time escaping if engaged upon.

Jinx's minigun takes time to ramp up. If you see her poking with rockets try to jump on her and burst her down.
