Guide to Countering Alistar as Jinx

Tips for Playing as Jinx against Alistar

Rockets aren't always the best choice! Jinx's minigun is incredibly powerful when fully ramped up. Switch to it whenever an enemy champion gets too close.

Jinx's rockets deal full damage to all enemies in the explosion. Use them on minions in lane to hit nearby enemy champions without drawing minion aggro.

When a fight starts try to stay on the edge of fray by poking with rockets and Zap!. Do not run in and unload with the minigun until you feel it is safe.

Advice to Win Against Alistar

Alistar is very disruptive but very tough - try to target more fragile damage dealers.

Watch out for the Pulverize-Headbutt combo when around turrets.

When Alistar uses his ultimate, it's often better to move back and wait until the effect wears off before attacking him.
