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

xPetu says “Recommended: Sustain Runes & Teleport Tips: Passive shield his Q and AA poke. W to stop his W 3rd stack. Stand away from walls to prevent R stun. Don't engage when he's about to transform.”
Sovereign Kitten says “Gnar is a pretty visual champion so you can take into account when to poke or avoid him. If he is yellow/red he is soon 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 can hit you once on the initial hit or on the return granting rage. He is currently a very popular top laner which recent buffs/nerfs. ”

Quinncidence says “D-shield + 2nd Wind is key in this matchup. If you manage to bait his jump, try and hit E and run him down, wall him and let ur Cats attack him.”

RealIreliaCarriesU says “Can be quite hard if you fall behind him as he is impossible to run away from but otherwise he is a fairly easy lane. Start Q and build passive and look to fight early on. You crush him before he gets items. As long as you hit your abilities on him you will win 100% of the time assuming you have passive stacked. Use your Q on low hp minions to dodge his Q and W and avoid being near walls when he is level 6 and has his ultimate form. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP. DON’T TAKE FREE POKE. CONQUEROR IS RECOMMENDED ALONG WITH SECOND WIND. STEELCAPS 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. Steelcaps rush is great into Gnar.”
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.”

Psychopathic Top says “Very player dependent. If the Gnar player knows how to poke and hits most of his Qs, it would be very difficult to not back before sheen gold. However, if you get your first back in with sheen, the matchup is free post level 6. Later on, the Gnar may build boots of swiftness, which is very tumor to deal with but try avoid chasing him or fighting him after that item. (If he itemizes swifties first, just focus on surviving). I laned against Finn (EUW pro player transfer to NA) a few days ago in challenger and he rushed swifties and I couldn't do anything. Not much counterplay if the Gnar player is good atm. ”

tonisco82 says “Easy to out trade in mini form, very predictable in mega form (like Renekton).”

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 Steelcaps and after he uses his jump then engage on him while it's on cooldown. While Gnar's jump is on cooldown he is a lot easier to deal with, just don't let him proc his W passive as that gives him movement speed to kite you. Also keep in mind that it's easier to fight mini Gnar due to how much squishier he is compared to mega form.”
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.”

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.)”

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. ”

Ratakor says “mini: do not get poke, stay in the bush and even at farm, he get destroyed in melee but have a good escape mega: excellent stats, 1v1 possible with ult + ignite”
liserith says “Gnar jungle is quite rare. His E can gap-close, but its easy to dodge with your Q. In mini form, he can duel you quite well, so don't underestimate him. ”

CalicoCactus says “Similiar to ezreal and teemo and all the baby auto attack bullies. Has mobility to escape and can deal some damage, tank form is scary to fight try to wait, either way just avoid fighting and go onto someone else in a fight.”

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.”

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.”
