Guide to Countering Pantheon as Jinx

Tips for Playing as Jinx against Pantheon

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 Pantheon

Pantheon's Aegis Assault makes him invulnerable from the front. Get behind him or wait it out.

Grand Starfall gives several seconds of warning before Pantheon arrives. Use this time to get out of the way or to form a plan to deal with him.

Be careful near Pantheon if your health is low - a thrown Comet Spear executes low health enemies.
