How to counter Varus: in Wild Rift

How do you counter Jinx Wild Rift?

Laning: Deny and Destroy

  • Master the Sidestep: That Piercing Arrow (Q) of his packs a punch, but it's predictable. Watch for him winding it up, then move like you're dodging a troll in the jungle. If he can't land that arrow, he's just a fancy bow with legs.
  • Early Aggression Pays Off: Let's be real, Varus starts out weaker than an unfed jungle camp. Bully him! Force those trades and make him chug potions like they're going out of style. Shatter his early game confidence, and he might never find his rhythm.
  • Outsmart His Ult: Sure, that root of his can be a pain, but it ain't magic – he still has to aim! A well-timed dodge or a cheeky Flash can leave him looking like a fool. Deny him that easy setup, and watch his power fizzle.

Teamfights: Focus the Archer

  • Gap Closers are King: Champions like Vi, Irelia, or Lee Sin can turn Varus into a pincushion before he even blinks. Talk with your team – the moment a fight breaks out, dive in and make him regret picking a bow over a shield.
  • Silence is Golden: Varus is basically an ability-spamming machine. A timely silence from champs like Garen or Soraka can leave him more useless than a minion at level 15.

Champion Picks to Ruin Varus's Day:

  • Long-range Duels: Champs like Caitlyn, Ezreal, or Ashe can out-poke Varus, keeping him on his toes and making him think twice before slinging arrows.
  • Unstoppable Engage: Malphite, Nautilus, or Leona laugh at Varus's pokes. They'll lock him down and set your team up for a swift takedown.

Ready to Teach Varus a Lesson?

The key is to smother Varus. He wants to farm from afar? Nope! Play aggressively, dance around those arrows, and make him pay for every mistake. Do it right, and soon he'll be the one limping back to base, wishing he'd taken up knitting instead.
