Guide to Countering Blitzcrank as Vel'Koz

Tips for Playing as Vel'Koz against Blitzcrank

Be very careful about when to use Life Form Disintegration Ray. Many champions have abilities that can interrupt the spell.

When laning, use Void Rift to kill minions while building stacks of Organic Deconstruction on your opponent. You can then follow up with your other abilities.

Shooting Plasma Fission diagonally and splitting at maximum range allows you to hit opponents that are out of the range of the initial missile, but is more challenging to pull off.

Advice to Win Against Blitzcrank

Blitzcrank's passive Mana Barrier grants him a shield when he is low on health.

Staying behind creeps can prevent you from being Rocket Grabbed. Blitzcrank's Rocket Grab only pulls the first enemy target it encounters.
