Introduction

Jinx is an immobile hypercarry with minimal CC and a passive that gives her movement speed steroid when she destroys almost anything. She scales to be a team fighting terror with her ability to do AOE damage with rockets with the critical strike damage affecting everyone in range and a global execute ultimate, but has a hard time avoiding things like mobile assassins and bruisers without somesort of assistance.

Abilities


Passive – Adrenaline Rush

Passive – Get Excited!

Jinx receives massively increased Movement Speed and stacking Attack Speed whenever she damages an enemy champion, tower, or inhibitor that is then killed or destroyed within 3 seconds.

Q – Infected Cleaver

Q – Switcheroo!

Jinx modifies her basic attacks by swapping between Pow-Pow, her minigun and Fishbones, her rocket launcher. Attacks with Pow-Pow grant Attack Speed, while attacks with Fishbones deal area of effect damage, gain increased range, and drain Mana.

W – Burning Agony (Toggle)

W – Zap!

Jinx uses Zapper, her shock pistol, to fire a blast that deals damage to the first enemy hit, slowing and revealing it

E – Masochism

E – Flame Chompers!

Jinx tosses out 3 chompers that, once armed, explode on contact with enemy champions, rooting the target for 1.5 seconds and dealing Magic Damage over 1.5 seconds to nearby enemies. Chompers last for 5 seconds.

R – Sadism

R –Super Mega Death Rocket!

Jinx fires a super rocket across the map that gains damage as it travels. The rocket will explode upon colliding with an enemy champion, dealing damage to it and surrounding enemies based on their missing Health.

Nearby enemies take 80% Damage.

Our Top Counter Tips For Jinx


Jinx dies really quickly to anyone who can get on top of her with CC. Don't be afraid to take a fight to her, not only do you lessen her damage output in a teamfight, but she's too squishy to survive.

Jinx's minigun takes time to hit it's highest attack speed, this gives you a window of opportunity to punish her if you get on top of her while she's using her rockets. She won't attack as quickly with rockets out, and switching to minigun causes her DPS to dip dramatically, in which time she can be killed

Jinx's laning phase leaves a little bit to be desired, taking a strong laning duo can punish a Jinx pick, simply by virtue of outdamaging her, especially given the fact that her range doesn't increase a lot until she has several points into her Q

Flame Chompers have a high cooldown and are her only innate defensive ability. Punish her lack of defense while they're down.

Champions That Counter Jinx


Azir Counter Tips 3

Draven

He's a powerful laner. If there's anyone that can punish Jinx for not having an amazing laning phase, it's this guy. A good Draven will outdamage her in every trade and force her to play so far back that she falls behind, or will just kill her and force her to fall behind anyway, while he cashes in his passive stacks to get ahead.

Morgana Alistair Counter Champion

Kalista

Not very popular now, but still get against Jinx, she can avoid the Zap and Death Rocket, she can also CC Jinx by hitting her with whoever she soulbound, causing her to do no damage for a time and lose the duel. She's a pretty strong laner on top of that, with her Sentinel passive doing as much damage as it does.

Jax Tryndamere Counter Champion

Leona

At level 3 Jinx has to respect Leona's ability to engage on her, at level 6, Jinx needs to make sure that she has the enemy tower taken, or that she's getting sufficient jungle assistance to ensure that Leona and her AD Carry don't just kill her. This is assuming that Jinxes support isn't something like Morgana. As long as it's not, Leona makes Jinx's life hard, and tilts the lane against her.

Trundle Xin Zhao Counter Champion

Miss Fortune

Miss Fortune is a walking fountain turret, and she can demolish Jinx post six with a Make It Rain/Bullet Time combo. Even before then, she can trade and poke really well thanks to Love Taps and Double Up. Miss Fortune just does too much damage for Jinx to survive, and doesn't have the mobility to avoid her slow/ulti combination.

Itemization


Frozen Heart Xin Zhao Counter Item

Frozen Heart

Randuin's Omen Xin Zhao Counter Item

Randuin's Omen

You want armor. Moreover the most important items you can buy against this champion are Frozen Heart to slow her attack speed, and Randuins to slow her, and decrease her critical strike damage. Otherwise, you just need to buy armor items depending on how threatening she has become in the mid-late game.
