Tips Against Gnar in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

I Am Goliath says “Gnar is not a bad matchup for Urgot at all since we're ranged as well, and Urgot is just simply stronger in the laning phase, rush a ninja tabi in this matchup and gnar has no kill pressure as long as you play around his mega and don't go near walls or try to all in him while he is in mega. This lane is all about looking for all ins when he is in his mini form (and not close to transforming into mega) and dodging his boomerangs as well as trying to not let him get his third W procs often, if you hit an E on him you should win every trade, if he E's away then simply q him and chase him down.”

Ayanleh says “You can deal with gnar more easier than some other ranged matchup's because he is half melee half ranged so look for trades when hes in melee form and shred him.”

Sovereign Kitten says “Gnar is a pretty visual champion so you can take into account when to poke or avoid him. If he is glowing RED (Max Rage) he is ready to transform into Mega Gnar, if he is glowing BLUE after hitting you 3 times, he gains mobility so keep your distance. You want to keep yourself away from terrain while he is Mega Gnar, otherwise he will simply jump to you, combo his ultimate and slam you into the wall, followed by a barrage of his abilities which will further stun you. The laning phase will consist of him trying to land his boomerang which hits both ways granting him more rage. Catching the boomerang reduces his CD. ”

YoungTact says “Ever since his buffs its actually a difficult match up . Play to farm to the best ability and only trade with him in MEGA form applying the lane harass combo but beware of his mega form W. Rush D shield after corrupting pot and call for jungler because you can setup ganks really well by E'ing onto a minion to close the gap then W'ing his jump. ”
Rhoku says “TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP. DON’T TAKE FREE POKE. CONQUEROR IS RECOMMENDED ALONG WITH SECOND WIND. NINJA TABI RUSH IS GOOD. TRY TO CANCEL HIS JUMP WITH YOUR E. A Gnar lane is somewhat difficult to play, as a good Gnar will always be out of your range. It is a skill matchup between you two. It is an even lane so the better player will always win. Gnar is slightly more useful than you in teamfights if his team is ahead but he is also prime target to stack 5 off of. You should try to avoid his boomerang poke but you can take D shield along with second wind just to be sure. Phase Rush SOUNDS like a good choice into him but Conqueror is actually the recommended choice. Try to freeze the wave in your side of the lane and then run him down. If you time it correctly, you can use your pull to cancel his jump which is essentially a death sentence for him. Be careful when fighting him at low hp, as with Mega Gnar, he has enough cc to keep you stunned long enough to kill you. Not to mention how his CC allows him to set up ganks very well so keep an eye out for it. A Ninja Tabi rush is great into Gnar.”

Defensivity1 says “Gnar has a lot of damage so always be carefull to not be hit with his third auto attack from the passive of his w. do not be ashamed to base at level 4 or 5 to buy some cloth armors or a tabi if you can afford it.”

Pathetic Singed says “Smash your keyboard it's justified. Gnar is an awful lane, he pokes you out of lane constantly and his E is the perfect escape. Very tricky to flip. Wait for his Mega Gnar before you can do anything and even then it's risky. Your W can cancel his E in both forms, but is generally too slow. Riot is slowly buffing Mega Gnar, so soon Gnar might be bumped up to being an EXTREME threat.”

Drake6401 says “Good Gnars will be a pain, especially when get their kiting items. He's generally unpopular right now so I haven't gotten much experience against him yet. Just know you'll be poked a ton and there's not a lot you can do about it early on or late for that matter.”

I Am Goliath says “The Gnar has to be really good to win this matchup, you should never really die in this lane but it's okay if you don't kill him since you outscale him hard. Remember that mini Gnar is super squishy so trade with him while he's in that, pay close attention to his mega bar and don't stand close to walls so he can fling you into them with his R in mega.”

qasddsa says “Annoying for Kayle to deal with while in ranged form as he can poke you out with his three-hit passive, range, movespeed, and Q. Recommended to take Fleet and max Q in this matchup. In teamfights, he has higher pressure with Mega Gnar, but can be easily kited and killed. Do not stand near walls and watch out for his CC. Keep track of his movements and his Rage bar whenever you're against him.”
PH45 says “You can't really kill him easily as he will just jump away if you engage on him. He will just poke you with his Q and his W's damage. Get tabis and after he uses his jump then engage on him while it's on cooldown. ”
Wawza says “Mostly annoying with his ranged form, you have range on you Q so you can just trade with him when he tries to farm, eventually when he is in Mega keep clear of terrain to deny his stun from his ultimate”

Raen says “Max Q, try to bait his jump then all in him. Fast tabi and phage will help you to chase him. Maxing second E also will help you a lot since most of his dmg comes from AA especially at mini gnar. ”
CaptianMike says “This match-up is dependent on how skilled the Gnar is. If he applies pressure early, you just need to farm under tower and ask for ganks. Don't let him get 3 stacks on you since it deals %max hp. Build ninja tabi and armour items in general”

The_Unf0rgiv3n says “Gnar is an interesting lane. You will mostly want to trade with him when he's in his mini gnar form and avoid the big guy but if you manage to get a couple of kill before 6, you won't have a problem with either form. Rush tabis on this lane to help you survive those long range pokes.”

Persicum777 says “Its a ranged matchup so its annoying but i still take corrupting pot cause gnar isnt really a big problem, dont take too much harass, all ends are easy if he wastes his dash, watch his rage and dont ever extend, tethering is a strong feature to this lane. Also he is much more easily dealt with in his ulted form as long as you dodge stun and ult when he ults, simple.”

Anoying bro5 says “Usually against rage matchups I wait till lvl 3 or lvl 2 to engage. You want to focus on parrying his 3rd W ring if he isnt going to be turning to mega gnar soon. You can also parry his Mega Gnar W or ult. His E jump is on a fairly long cooldown (22sec) so keep that in mind when looking to kill by doing your full combo.”

iZeal says “Don't let him get free 3 hit procs on you, try to engage him when he has no minions behind him as he has to blow flash when he does not get the double hop. It is advisable to engage when he just turned Mini-Gnar again. Try to not teamfight when he is about to turn Mega, be wary of Frozen Mallet when completed. Dodge Q to get an opening, if you pull him out his E he is dead. DShield/DBlade, Ninja Tabis, Phage.”

Justkb says “Go Phaserush and try to run him down at level 3 once the wave is near your tower! You can beat him at all stages of the game if you have higher HP than him and he has no E! Rush Tabi's and phage and look to bait his E! if you are losing early you can comeback into the game significantly at level 11 and once more at level 16. Try not to let him proc his passive too much as the movement speed will be too much to handle.”
✔️[10.19] JUST1KB'S DARIUS GUIDE! by Justkb | Darius Player
I Am Goliath says “Really annoying matchup especially in the early levels, try not to get hit by his third W proc often because the damage will start to add up. Respect his mega form a lot and play passive when it's up, although I find the mini gnar is a lot more annoying when playing a hard tank like sion because of the W procs. Once you get some armor and health items he shouldn't do to much to you, but Gnar also scales pretty well into the late game so I'd say this is a fairly even matchup that is annoying for you early. Remember when he is in mega he has to ways to cancel your Q channel which is his W and his R.”

Rhoku says “Gnar is a very annoying matchup but as long as you keep a cool head, its manageable. The thing about this matchup is that it is pretty much a stalemate. Once Gnar gets his jump, you won't really be able to kill him unless you use your pull in a way to cancel his jump. Doing this is very difficult as it requires a lot of luck though. His short range means that you will be able to poke him with your Q so try to make sure that you avoid poke and then go in to hit a Q only, with you backing out after. A E->AA->Q combo is devastating for him so try that to win a trade. If he goes into Mega Gnar, you can better punish his mispositioning, as he can't really escape too well. You want to be looking for all ins when he is in Mega Gnar but do NOT underestimate him. If you are both low HP, he will win because MegaGnar has enough stuns and etc. to keep you locked in place for long enough for him to kill you. If you use your Ultimate properly, you will kill him fairly easily though. Just make sure to ult him when he is in Mini-Gnar, as Mega Gnar can just stun you against the walls of your own ultimate and in general, is better at wasting time.”

LoLReal says “Gnar is more of a nuisance than any sort of threat. Early he can poke us down and jump away if we hit E, but there is nothing he can do after we get 6. Can kill Gnar on cooldown with R. Easy lane.”
LoLReal says “Extremely difficult. Thankfully he is not meta right now (let's keep it that way). We lose early, mid and late to Gnar in the side lane. He's also just as good of a team fighter as we are. Hope he makes a mistake in lane, can pull him if he walks too far up, but he can jump out. He has to misplay badly to lose. This lane will usually be farming under turret, get tabis first.”
ChaseMorePlz says “The only real threat he has to you is his range, if he gets too close trade with him early. Levels 1-3 the trades come out best with your fast combo.”

Ravenborne says “Just a boring lane. Both of you do not have kill pressure on eachother. If you do manage to get close to him, don't start off with E but with Q into W. Either chase him down and E him back in or if you are good enough cancel his Jump with your E. Oh and obviously don't get hit by his Q.”

Phrxshn says “Fight him if he is in Mega Gnar form pre-6 or without his GNAR!(R). Dodge his Boomerang Throw(Q) then trade with Gnar. Try to dodge his Hop(E) from preventing him from Double-Hopping. (Jaws of the Beast follow his Hops) (Recommended Items: Deadman's Plate, Ninja Tabi or Swiftness Boots) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Gnar in Yordle Form, Warwick against Mega Gnar) (Outscaling Edge: Warwick)”

ERNESTSAURUS says “GRASP (TANK) / CONQUEROR SETUP - CLOTH ARMOR + 4 POTS = Gnar is a really obnoxious champion to deal as Nasus, specially since he can go melee and range, he has decent CC and damage as Mega Gnar and a lot ok kitting as Mini Gnar, but he lacks of sustain, so look to farm as safely as you can and try to dodge his Q's. Usually the will go for PTA and Demolish + Boneplating, since its the best rune for either Mega and Mini Gnar, so make sure he doesn't proc PTA and his W passive on you, it can deal a lot of damage early on. Once you get enough Stacks, CDR and mana look to do short trades into him into an eventual all in. Later on it becomes really annoying to chase him since he gets so much movement speed so look to fight him whenever he is in Mega Gnar, also keep in mind that after his Mega Gnar form ended, he can't get fury for 15 seconds and his E (his little hop) has a 22 seconds cooldown lvl 1, you can look to punish this cooldowns.”

chrisorion says “Second Wind and Doran's Shield. His mini Gnar form is harder to deal with than his mega Gnar form. You win against him in Mega form if you parry his W or his R. In Mini form you have to wait until he uses hop. In Mini form you want to avoid getting hit by his 3rd W stack. Dodge Q in lane whether he's in mini or mega form. Always keep track of his rage meter. You can go Blade of the Ruined King.”

ChaseMorePlz says “As long as you DON'T take a load of free harass, this is a very easy matchup. Try to avoid him pre-6 when he transforms into Mega Gnar. Once you hit 6, Gnar relies on the CC from Mega Gnar + his ult; once you get past lane phase it's very easy due to Olaf's kit.”

StrikeX114 says “Gnar himself poses a minimal threat outside of his boomerang (Q), which deals considerable chip damage. Mega-Gnar, however, is a force to be reckoned with due to the high amounts of CC and damage he can provide. Make sure to distance yourself from him once he starts to transform.”
NickCola Tesla says “Gnar's threat level can be quite difficult for newer players! In the early laning phase, he'a more annoying than he is powerful. He's able to hop out of your Q's AoE, but you can poke at him in his mini form using your E. However, the base CD on it is 22 second long, meaning you can look to take a favorable trade once he uses it. He is a very tough champion to itemize against. If you are confident, take the standard tank runes against him. Respect his powerspike with Black Cleaver, and don't try to fight him if your armor is cleaved! ”

CFCryo says “Ranged Top laners usually have more range than Thresh, leading to a disadvantage. Gnar's manaless Q can poke pretty well, and though his range is short, it's enough to hurt Thresh more than Thresh can hurt him. That said, Thresh Flay is an incredible ability that keeps Mega Gnar at bay, and can pull Tiny Gnar into danger by any misstep. You don't need to take Aftershock against him, and you have a fair shot of outdamaging him in certain situations (Barely coming out of Mega), but Gnar's jump can be stopped easily by Thresh flay. Use this to your advantage with a Lantern Gank!”

Womsky says “Scaling runes, doran's sheild start, its kinda annoying if the gnar plays well and safe, you can punish him early pre level 3 before he gets his jump, when he gets the jump it becomes tricky, you need to know how to trade with him without being ran down with him AA you after you disengage, you only trade with fury, and you should trade when he misses a Q or comes close to you to the point where you can spin behind him, and trade into mini gnar, mega gnar has too much states to trade with and stuns, you should get a double crit buy *50% crit* if you get an early lead on him, cause that will make you snowball harder and run him down even easier, ghost is very recommanded”

AWierdShoe says “Stand behind minions/dodge his long range Q’s. Stay back most of the time except the time you walk up to last hit. Deny his poke with your shield and your W, never let him proc his W and it should be survivable. If you’re getting pushed in, then look for/threaten taunts while he’s under your tower. If you’re gonna all-in any time that’s not under tower, do it either when his bar is low or optimally right when he turns from big to small. ”

ModxLoL says “Gnar is somewhere between a 2 and a 3. A Gnar should be able to poke you a decent amount in the early game while you're focused on farming. You can't realistically jump on him early game with such low CDR unless he didn't go resolve, and you can manage to bait out his jump. A good Gnar will know how to hold his jump though, so be careful not to take too bad of a trade trying to bait it out. Most of the time in higher ranks, I'll start Doran's Shield and try farming up, but in lower ranks, going long sword + 3 pots is definitely not a bad choice. It also opens the option of cheesing in a bush at level 1 that you can do a lot if you are blue side. Gnar is super weak in ranged form, so if he facechecks the tri-bush that you're sitting in while he's walking to lane after leashing red, you can one shot him with a basic fast q combo; just make sure you start it off with an auto attack.”

Both press the attack and conqueror are good choices here”

S10 UNDYING DOMINATOR SHEN by Hypnosa | Shen Player
EntxRecoil says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Dorans shield start. Against gnar you can abuse his low base stats on his mini gnar in early trades before he gets his jump (usually gnars will get their jump at level 3.) So for your first trade against him you usually want to wait out his q and either dodge it while you build up fury or if it hits you wait until the slow runs out. Then spin on him and auto attack while moving towards his turret to extend the trade as much as possible. Usually can get 3-4 auto attacks if you position your spin correctly. Once gnar hits level 3 if you havent gotten enough damage on him to look for a kill then just farm. IMPORTANT NOTE: Gnar's hop is a 22 second cooldown level 1. So if he uses it, then you will have atleast a 10 second window to spin on him (assuming you made him use his hop when you used your spin at him) to get another spin and run him down. In the mid-late game splitpush it can be hard to beat gnar 1v1. Ways you can beat gnar in the mid-late game split push, either you wait until hes exhausted (just came out of mega gnar form) so that he cannot build it back up when you allin him, you can build swifty boots to help stick on top of him thru his slows, if he face checks you in a bush and you hit your w slow that can be another way to catch him out on the split and beat him 1v1. When using your w remember that he will turn back to throw his boomerang so try to time your w slow to cast after he uses boomerang + an auto attack to guarantee you will hit it.”

Kingarthur720 says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Dorans shield start. Against gnar you can abuse his low base stats on his mini gnar in early trades before he gets his jump (usually gnars will get their jump at level 3.) So for your first trade against him you usually want to wait out his q and either dodge it while you build up fury or if it hits you wait until the slow runs out. Then spin on him and auto attack while moving towards his turret to extend the trade as much as possible. Usually can get 3-4 auto attacks if you position your spin correctly. Once gnar hits level 3 if you havent gotten enough damage on him to look for a kill then just farm. IMPORTANT NOTE: Gnar's hop is a 22 second cooldown level 1. So if he uses it, then you will have atleast a 10 second window to spin on him (assuming you made him use his hop when you used your spin at him) to get another spin and run him down. In the mid-late game splitpush it can be hard to beat gnar 1v1. Ways you can beat gnar in the mid-late game split push, either you wait until hes exhausted (just came out of mega gnar form) so that he cannot build it back up when you allin him, you can build swifty boots to help stick on top of him thru his slows, if he face checks you in a bush and you hit your w slow that can be another way to catch him out on the split and beat him 1v1. When using your w remember that he will turn back to throw his boomerang so try to time your w slow to cast after he uses boomerang + an auto attack to guarantee you will hit it.”

Dantheman81 says “This is honestly one of my least favorite match-ups. I recommend that you start Doran's shield and play passive as his early levels he will beat you. If you see him use his jump you have about 20 seconds to attempt to trap him or get some ghoul poke damage on him. Pay attention to his rage bar so when he turns mega he doesn't get a free kill.”

Hijitori says “His true damage on W passive, slow effect on Q and his passive, his dash on E, that helps him in kiting. Good gnar will punish you for every Q used on minions by you. In this situation it might be better to try to last-hit most minions with Aa or E, leaving Q for the moment he starts to punish you. Once Gnar builds PHAGE he gains lifesteal so he can recover lost hp (together with Doran's Blade) and thanks to the ghost he can easily KITE and POKE you, and also DODGE your Q.”

When he gets mega form try to dash around so u can deny that W stun and stay away from the walls.”

Discord Rengar Mains says “Snowball lane. He can kite fairly well in mini gnar form but if you manage to catch him off guard you will beat the absolute shit out of him since he is incredibly squishy until he gets items. Never commit to long trades against Gnar early on, what you want to do is to poke him down little by little until you can jump to him, root him with emp E so he can't leap away and kill him or force him to flash. Try dodging his Q before going in so you can secure you will win the trade. Jumping onto him when he is near transformation or when he is mega gnar is an exercise in futility, you are just completely wasting your time. His level 6 is annoying but not insurmountable, because it's gated behind his Mega form. If you get a lead just push under his turret and roam because he has a hard time following. He is a teamfight powerhouse and he scales well with items, so there will be a point where you just won't want to focus him anymore. He is also not picked that much nowadays, so there is that. Ignite is recommended if you are sure you will kill him early game, else TP is also an option. Conqueror and fleet are nice, you might also want to consider HoB but ONLY if you are 100% SURE you will beat him hard before laning phase ends.”

TrollingSmurfGr says “Ranged Top laners usually have more range than Thresh, leading to a disadvantage. Gnar's manaless Q can poke pretty well, and though his range is short, it's enough to hurt Thresh more than Thresh can hurt him. That said, Thresh Flay is an incredible ability that keeps Mega Gnar at bay, and can pull Tiny Gnar into danger by any misstep. You don't need to take Aftershock against him, and you have a fair shot of outdamaging him in certain situations (Barely coming out of Mega), but Gnar's jump can be stopped easily by Thresh flay.

He can constantly poke you with Q since he doesn't have mana and with the movement speed of his W he can actually kill you if you over extend. You can cancel his Hop (E) in both mini and mega form so you can play safe enough to not die , but you won't be able to win lane against Gnar.

Joaking says “Skill matchup, but he has more chances to win. If he uses his E and then he keeps fighting you, you'll win. When he's Mega Gnar you can dodge all of his abilities, so, it is better wait until he is Mega Gnar to trade him, but carefully.”

NoxianBlood says “Gnar is a tough matchup for Sion even if you do well, the fact that Gnar can switch from Adc to Tank, makes Sion hard to fight him, just be aware that he deals a percentage of your max each third attack in magic damage, so don't buy only armor, get also some magic resist, also when you see him ready to transform at low health don't engage for the kill cause he will transform to mega gnar get his health back and ult stun you against the wall and stun you again with one hammer punch and slow you down and kill you without even know what happened. so try to bring him down while he's on his mini-form.”

Askio says “He has to get in close to get his big boi form on you, and he is squishy if you get a hold of him in mini Gnar form. Play safe, avoid mini Gnar's hp busting moves, and you should win. ”
Zhygop says “Gnar is just darius perfect counter. He got range, damage and a second form that can kill you easily at level 6 Try to poke him with your Q so with Mega Gnar, he'll get less HP.”

Split King says “Land a taunt on him when he is in mini form. You will outtrade him really badly. Back off when he gets big. Keep engaging till he dies. Gnar has somewhat short AA range so landing taunt on him should be manageable. However if you are not good at landing taunts yet then Gnar can actually be troublesome as he will be able to kite you and you no longer have taunt up for disengage.”

BeautifulWinter says “Hard to win this one but still doable. When he is small he is 100% an extreme threat but when he is big he falls under even. Don't let him poke you too much. only fight him when your ult is up and he is big. Good target for flash ult when you E his tiny form. Back off and let him get closer to his spirit. Prior to 6 passive. Post 6 agro when ult is up.”

You have to dodge his slow, full combo him and W his thing where he autos you 3 times and it does half your hp, now unlike vaynes retardedly broken true damage you can actually mitigate Gnars. So you keep poking him down and you just flash Q ignite ult, if the Gnar is too good at right clicking then try to get jungle assistance.”

Luthy2278 says “Gnar is a strong pick against Mordekaiser, but it is very easy for you to kill him early game, just poke him until he is low and if he makes a mistake and overextends, he will die. After you hit level 6, you can easily kill him, but watch out for Megagnar, for he will probably kill you or dive you if you are low hp.”
BigManYam says “Gnar will kite you early to stop you from getting any XP and stacks which makes it really hard for you early game due to the fact he's ranged and can be hard for you to trade against. But you will scale harder late game and will be able to trade against him once he transforms as he won't have much kiting potential. ”

Defensivity1 says “Dont let him proc his third attack from his w passive, it deals %hp damage outside of that feel free to poke him down with ghouls, and if he ever wastes his e you could all in him with the maiden at level 6 cage him up and he is guaranteed to die as long as he doesnt have flash or e. he is mainly a threath early always let him push you in.”

Quezel says “Gnar has lots of poke and can kite melee champs with no mobility very easily however Mega Gnar is significantly easier to kill look to engage on him when he transforms otherwise just try to dodge boomerangs and avoid getting hit by his w passive as it does a LOT of his damage prime target to ult in teamfights as he goes in as he can chain cc lock your team very easily.”

SNOBOY says “Gnar has grown a lot in popularity and is a difficult match up because of Mega Gnar form and his ranged harass in his mini form. I would recommend playing a passive early game and poking with your Q when he is mini and in range. Be careful of the speed boost he gets because he can chase you down and catch you off guard easily. Just avoid him when he is Mega Gnar, and save your combo for when he is mini and used his jump.”

ProgettoYorick says “During the initial phase the first 2 levels gnar will bully, do not worry during level 3 until you reach 6 you can already start hitting him, the only thing you will have to do is wait for him to use his jump, after that he hasn't multiple escape routes, will die or be forced to use the flash. OTP tip: If gnar is very aggressive, a ninja tabbi will help you, from level 6 onwards, if gnar does not have too many kills, your skills will be much stronger than his by closing it and using your R you will destroy it.”
hotdog93 says “He can poke you in mini gnar, but is not too hard to kill in mini gnar so long as he uses his jump. If he does, it has a 22 second cooldown and you can punish that pretty hard. The ideal situation is that his e and transformation are on cooldown. Doran's Shield second wind are really good. 1v1 will be tough if he gets a thornmail, or really any armor, but if he does, Lord Dominik's Regards and Cleaver together can be enough to punch through his armor. ”

ThisIsJustSad says “1. Gnar has a slow + a dash away + he's ranged. That means it's very difficult to reach him. However, when you reach him, you will always be able to 1v1 him if you're even. S 2. Let gnar push into you, create a freeze, CS till you're the same level as Gnar, then just run into the Gnar. If the vital is behind the Gnar, then walk away then back to reset it to a more favorable position.”

Karnan says “Has huge range advantage, can evade your attempts at getting him with his E and can safely farm vs you. It comes down to who makes the bigger mistakes, gnar can fuck up big if he disrespects your damage post 6. He might also fuck up in teamfights, look to counter his plays rather than be on the offensive yourself.”

AlienMV says “Watch for his mini form Q and mega form W. Gnar isn't very threatening. He is susceptible to being poked out while in his mini form, and his main source of damage is landing his Q. His auto range is also short early. As long as you don't get CC'd and than hammered with autos, you should be fine.”

yetusek says “Lethal Tempo Runes. Ghost + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start or you can take Fleet Footwork Runes and Build with Ignite + Flash and dorans shield or 3 rejuv bead start. Against gnar you can abuse his low base stats on his mini gnar in early trades before he gets his jump (usually gnars will get their jump at level 3.) So for your first trade against him you usually want to wait out his q and either dodge it while you build up fury or if it hits you wait until the slow runs out. Then spin on him and auto attack while moving towards his turret to extend the trade as much as possible. Usually can get 3-4 auto attacks if you position your spin correctly. Once gnar hits level 3 if you havent gotten enough damage on him to look for a kill then just farm. IMPORTANT NOTE: Gnar's hop is a 22 second cooldown level 1. So if he uses it, then you will have atleast a 10 second window to spin on him (assuming you made him use his hop when you used your spin at him) to get another spin and run him down. In the mid-late game splitpush it can be hard to beat gnar 1v1. Ways you can beat gnar in the mid-late game split push, either you wait until hes exhausted (just came out of mega gnar form) so that he cannot build it back up when you allin him, you can build swifty boots to help stick on top of him thru his slows, if he face checks you in a bush and you hit your w slow that can be another way to catch him out on the split and beat him 1v1. When using your w remember that he will turn back to throw his boomerang so try to time your w slow to cast after he uses boomerang + an auto attack to guarantee you will hit it.”

Lynboe says “Ce match-up peut être rude cependant Gnar devient vulnérable face à Darius lorsqu'il se transforme, c’est à ce moment que l'on décide de l’affronter la plupart du temps,. Lorsqu'il est en mini Gnar vous pouvez lui asséner de lourds dégâts si vous arrivez à anticiper ses déplacements avec des combos rapides, il est conseillé de commencer avec le Doran’s shield et Second Wind afin d’éviter de trop se faire poke. Rush des Tabis Ninja aidera également beaucoup dans ce match-up. Cependant il existe une seconde alternative à ce face à face, avec l’expérience vous apprendrez à anticiper toutes ses décisions et à faire en sorte qu’il se pense supérieur afin de mieux le punir en l’ attrapant au vol après un All-in (cc Fallen). À ce moment vous pourrez tout simplement le farmer et rouler sur la lane. ”
Jnewbringspain says “Gnar can be difficult. He can kite you and easily escape if you jump on him. Try to avoid skillshots and farm up. Once you have level 6 and Sheen, auto a minion twice, Leap Strike to him, Empower and attack once, then back off. Do this a few times if possible and you give yourself a chance at killing him.

Prince Afghan says “Gnar is a strong lane bully and depending on what he builds he will likely be able to kite you out fairly easily. Don't feed early and farm as safely as possible. Make sure to get your splitpush going, as most Gnars will want to group and teamfight with their ultimate using Mega Gnar. ”

M2 Jizu says “NO DEJES QUE TE POKEE El fallo de muchas personas es dejar que los pokeen sin responder. Asi no se juega muchachos, yo les recomiendo siempre empezar a pelear atravesando su Q y metiendo el Slow, le das 2 o incluso hasta los 3 básicos potenciados que te da la Q al atravesarla y te regresas, y si ves que no puedes atravesar tu Q entra con tu E. Tienes que responderle para que te respete más. ”
Yisuo says “If the Gnar is good start d shield and farm undertower, short trades are optimal, try to cancel his jump with ur cc”

Bombabo says “If you want to fight Mini Gnar, your best bet is to interrupt his jump with your Q+E. Once he can't escape, you should be able to deal a sizeable amount of damage to him. Mega gnar is easy to hit, just be sure to keep clear of walls.”
The Darkin Chad (WIP) by Bombabo | Aatrox Player
AmnesiaT says “He's just like a teemo. Annoying. Try to dodge his Q and dont let him poke you. Play agressive when he's little. You can cancel his jump with your Q [with the edge]. You can fight him on his big form as well but dont stay near to walls.”
Rcool64 says “He can do some pretty hefty poke to you when he's in miniform, so try to prevent him from procing his hyper passive. However, he's pretty vulnerable when hes in mega, so as long as he can't stun you with ult, you can abuse him a lot.”

RainbowNova says “Gnar isn't that annoying. That's all I got to say about him. ”
Lil Tidepod says “Gnar can be really tough to lane against because of his W. It will stack three times onto you and deal magic damage on his third hit. It has no cooldown and can really begin to chunk your health. On top of that, he has a lot of range jumping off of minions with his E, and he can use the E to jump off of is own minions as well. If you're going to 1v1 him, wait for his E to go down, and try and do it right after his Mega Gnar transformation has ended, as it will be on a short cooldown.”

ImpossibleLogic says “Yet another ranged, kind off, top laner. Gnar, while not in his Mega Gnar form, is a nightmare. Small, ranged, and fast pretty nasty. But, once he hits Mega Gnar, you can all in on him. Mega Gnar is much easier to control and you can easily setup your Q's, W, and E combo to all in him.”

NoobLikesGames says “I do not like this fluffy sh*t. He is too tanky with mobility, and cc, and damage and its overall just really tilting.”
DrMoneybags says “Gnar is a bit of a skill matchup and depends a lot on how well you can land your abilities. If you miss your E and Q, he will turn on you and run you down with his ranged spells to chunk you pretty hard with his %HP damage. He can also stun you for a very long time with Mega-Gnar when you get dismounted, so you won't be able to remount. Try and rush him early when he's in his mini-form with no rage built up and you'll almost always win as long as you don't miss abilities.”
Big Boy Matty D says “Rough match-up, can't really fight him pre-6. Consider maxing Q in lane to try and poke out while asking for a gank if he pushes up. If he hasn't snowballed you can fight him post 6. Just make sure he is not close to Mega-Gnar and gap-close with Q. Try to hold your ultimate until he hops away.”

TheNinjaRoid says “Pokey lane. If you manage to get ahead, you can win lane. Get Sheen and Mercury Treads. He can kite you really hard, so ask for ganks if you can kill him 2v1. Can't really stop you from farming too much, outside of killing you or poking you out of lane.”

ElleryTheViking says “Another super easy matchup. If he walks into melee range, just spam Q and E. His jump is a bit of a pain but its got a huge CD. If he uses it and pushes up again, you should be able to lock-down a kill. If it's on CD and you land a close quarters Q, use ghost, ult (so he doesnt slow you), and e q spam him till hes dead. Never fight him when he's big Gnar, unless he's real low and you have ult cause his CC makes it tough. ”

E61K says “Start Doran's Shield and take Second Wind. Obnoxious champion to deal with. However he is often told to be much more troublesome for Darius than he actually really is. You just gotta play it right from champ select. He will buy Black Cleaver + Mallet and try to kite you to death. To counter this to the best of your ability take Ghost and if you're familiar with playing with Phase Rush you can go for it too otherwise take Conqueror. Build Righteous Glory or Dead Man's Plate after Cleaver/Trinity. Take Ghost as well. All ins are always in your Favor if you can get to him. Lastly if you're clean you can pull him out of his jump which is his only escape against you. Rush Tabis against him since it seriously cucks him.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: Ranged & Melee, Tanky, High Mobility. Weaknesses: Squishy in Mini Gnar form, Outscaled, Predictable CC in Mega Gnar form. He is a difficult matchup because of how much mobility he has and how tanky he can get. He can pick and choose when he wants to fight for the most part so be sure to fight him with caution. Try not to let his Hyper 3-hit passive proc as it does a good chunk of damage especially when he tries to do it repeatedly. You probably want to build black cleaver against him if you are both even as he can be hard to hold down because of his jump let alone if he builds Frozen Mallet. His Mega Gnar abilities are easy to read at least and are easy to riposte so use that to your advantage when he tries to start a fight with you while in this form.”

drunken hunter says “Gnar can counter Rengar very hard but most of the time people dont know how to play Gnar. When Gnar hits you with an ability or an auto hit the third time, he will deal 14% of max. health as magical dmg. Also Gnar got very much CC in his mega form that he gets by doing auto hits or using abilities. With his ult he can throw you against a wall, you get stunned for a long time and get extra dmg. Never fight Gnar in his mega form, try to snare him with your (E) when he got low rage (the red bar under his hp) -> when he is mini Gnar. ”

E61K says “Yasuo is a known counter to gnar. Windwalling his boomerang puts it on a very long CD and enables you to dash onto him and chunk him hard. There is nothing aside from a small jump he can do about it. When he is in mega-form he can lock you down for an eternity. Avoid walls. Make use of your E and Wind wall to block his boulder and dodge his other abilities with your E. Gnar builds Black Cleaver and Frozen Mallet as his core items. Going PD into BORK will allow you to cut through him with ease.”
undeadsoldiers says “Gnar - PTA Early items (in order) - Tiamat, Sheen, Phage - All in lvl 1-2 (passive stacked) - Play aggressive in lane (lots of PTA trades with passive stacked) - Aim for shorter trades (his hyper stacks will wear you down surprisingly quickly) - Use W to mitigate his 3rd hyper stack when he's small - Save W for his ult when his rage is high - Be ready to Q away from his jump/bounce, stun, ult combo when his rage is high - Ult cooldown: 120/100/80 ”
BreadyToCrumble says “If you dodge his boomerangs and poke him with your W you'll be fine. Keep in mind that his jump has a really long cooldown at level 1, and so if he uses it to escape, follow up with your Hookshot and you'll be able to catch him. Again, take "Cut Down". Also, once he becomes mega Gnar stay away from walls. When he is about to become mini Gnar again, use hookshot and go for an all-in. It's usually a free kill if he doesn't have his jump. If he does, use your R to stop him from escaping.”

TheCrocodileGuy says “Gnar is very hard to play against in lane since he is a ranged tank champion. Just try to farm safely, and when he turns into Mega-Gnar, you can look for a all-in or a trade. If you can force Gnar out of lane by going all in and burning your ignite, it's worth it since being alone in lane while Gnar is the enemy top-laner is very rare.”

LivesforOnlyOne says “Pretty difficult matchup as he can stay juuuuuust outside of your range while poking you down. Mini Gnar is a terror that you won't be able to properly face until an item+phage. Mega Gnar on the other hand is your punching bag, trade into him as much as possible before he exhausts himself and reverts to his smaller form. Save Riposte for his stuns as it's pretty telegraphed or for a hyper proc if he's in mini. I take Fleet in matchups like these since you won't be able to proc Grasp all that much and Klepto isn't worth it either. Build/play defensively, ask for ganks.”

Shield with Second Wind means that you heal back a LOT from being attacked. If they hit you, just back off for a few seconds while being in XP range for the minions and then you will just heal up ridiculously fast. Gnar is a bit easier because his AA range is shorter but Gnar can actually beat you in all ins provided your health is low enough. You do NOT want to all in when you are at like <40% of your health. Mega Gnar has enough stuns to just make sure that you won't be able to attack him during which he can just kill you. Against Gnar, rush Ninja Tabis. If you can, try to kill him level one. Really stupid Gnar players will let you walk up to them and Q them. After that you can just start autoing. With Phase Rush, you will have enough movespeed and slow resist to catch up to him and take his flash. Level 2 is where you want to start playing passively. If you damaged him enough level 1, you can just pull him and then kill him level 2/3 later in lane. But know that a smart Gnar will NEVER engage you until you have low enough health.”

Dacnomaniak says “Really good Gnar players will never get stunned by you and will be able to kite you with his constant slows and speed ups. Just try to farm the lane out and ask your jungler for ganks.”

IllIlllIIlI says “I don't personally see Gnar as much of a threat, even though he's a lanebully. He's not very good in soloq at the moment. All he can really do is try to poke you in Mini-form, but he's also relatively squishy in his Mini-form. Once he transforms into Mega, you want to watch out for his stuns.”

GOTG Ment135 says “Match-up favorable, tenes mas pokeo y mas dps que el mientas lo castigues cuando el esta en forma de Mini-Gnar. También lo dominas cuando esta en forma Mega-Gnar, pero tienes que ser mas cuidadoso.”
TrashIreliaxd says “A very annoying matchup, Gnar can kite forever and it will be very hard for you to kill him. I recommend doing the level 1 cheese and then don't try killing him until level 6. Frozen Mallet can help him shut down his mobility.”

thedunkening111 says “If you're smart, you can win this by 100-0 him once your burst comes online at level six. He'll try to hop away, the trick is to ult him where he lands. He's squishy for a fair bit, so abuse your all in while you can. Take Conqueror”
DuhBrandon says “The main reason why he's number 3 is because a decent Gnar will know when he's poked enough to all in you and don't rely on your shroud as he can literally throw you out of it and rag doll you. your best bet is to win more trades against him then he does to you.”
unkbugado says “meh, typical ranged matchup, but you have a chance against the mega form”

galvapheonix says “I recommend that you start Doran's shield and play passive as his early levels he will beat you. If you see him use his jump you have about 20 seconds to attempt to trap him or get some ghoul poke damage on him. Pay attention to his rage bar so when he turns mega he doesn't get a free kill.”

WannabeGenghis says “I dont really have any science on this one, its even, you both counter eachother in different ways, only hard thing is that when hes rage mode, and he got you stunned, you lost dude, dont fight back....”

Thoir says “Gnar can be a problem if he's good at kiting. You have to try to engage him when his E is on CD.”

Tips Against Gnar in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Polarshift says “Champion designed for kiting. Not fun to play against as a melee toplaner. If he ever blows his jump to get close on you for some reason he won't have any escapes left (if he doesn't have fury that is.)”

ChaseMorePlz says “Can kite and CC you for days, but isn't impossible to play versus. Keep these things in mind and you will be fine. Building Mercs helps versus his CC a ton.”

Suseri says “Ranged matchups are never easy or fun to play against but also not impossible to beat. Avoid getting poked from him by playing a little safer and staying behind minions. You can win at the early Levels but he'll have his range advantage and also he'll have alot of fast CC spells in his big form so keep that in mind. Avoid fighting if you can't get a lead and try to all in him in his small form. ”

ManiacChester says “Super strong. His boomerangs are hit hard. His transformation has a stun”

OGPOTATOJEFFSHACO says “watch out for his big gnar. Set boxes to kill. Weak with no items”
LFS_aXent says “This ranged top laner will be just as annoying as you. Gnar is extremely aggro, and will dive you because why the fuck not. Stay away from him when rage is full. You can counter him if you dodge his Q and try to stay out of the line of him activating his W off of you.”
VTEC Jhin [UPDATED] by LFS_aXent | Jhin Player
McDank says “Avoid his poke and all in when he gets in enraged form, you win against him with ult but he's too elusive when hes not in enraged form. Try to block his leap with pillar.”
THE TRUNDLE BUNDLE [Jungle, Top, and Support] by McDank | Trundle Player
Jadiac5 says “His stun can be annoying if he isnt in rage mode easy kill. If he is you will probably have to ult when its a 1v1”
The Back To Spawn Edition by Jadiac5 | Evelynn Player
New Player says “Can poke and surprise your team by suddenly coming all in and you not being able to react fast enough.”

WiskeyANDGin says “while he is mini , u cant rly do sth about him,try and fight him while mega”

XKhaimeraX says “Gnar is a bit of a skill matchup and depends a lot on how well you can land your abilities. If you miss your E and Q, he will turn on you and run you down with his ranged spells to chunk you pretty hard with his %HP damage. He can also stun you for a very long time with Mega-Gnar when you get dismounted, so you won't be able to remount. Try and rush him early when he's in his mini-form with no rage built up and you'll almost always win as long as you don't miss abilities.”
