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

Kayn Mains says “Gragas's Body Slam (E) is able to cancel your Reaping Slash's (Q) dash which is why you do not want to fight him early on. He becomes even scarier during mid game as he will be able to kill you within seconds through a full combo. Avoid fighting him alone unless you are ahead. Gragas remains a significant threat during the late game, however, he shouldn’t be able to one shot you anymore as long as you made sure to incorporate some MR into your build. Get yourself some Armor Penetration and you will be able to beat him given that you avoid his stun.”

FalleN3 says “Gragas is pretty difficult to deal with, even when he is at low health. He is tanky and has lots of CC. Be careful if he is running away from you as he can always turn with a bodyslam and burst you down very quickly if you are chasing him. Good sustain and plenty of damage, avoid fighting with him early. As long as he doesn't get ahead of you there should be no problem to 1v1 him.”

reganakers says “Early game Gragas will not be able to kill you on his own, as he has a lot of burst damage and he wont be able to 1 shot you. After he's used his cooldowns you will be free to beat him up.”

Rhoku says “Gragas can be disruptive in teamfights and difficult to deal with due to how much cc he has. But if he goes Tank, he is free food and if he goes AP, you oneshot him. He might be more influential in certain situations than you but you should be able to put him behind you as he is really weak vs you.”
TheInkKingLoL says “Gragas is very tanky but doesn't have that much mobility, especially compared to you. Not much to say here honestly. He's a very zone-heavy champion.”

PsiGuard says “Gragas players these days are building him pretty squishy, and his R is really obvious and easy to block. You should have a major 1v1 advantage throughout the game. Watch for Stopwatch / Zhonya's so you aren't surprised when he picks one up.”
The Nocturnomicon by PsiGuard | Nocturne Player
PsiGuard says “He's pretty much a sitting duck if he gets CCd and he's not really strong enough early to bully you. You can probably blow him up in 2v2s if you charm him and your laner finishes him off.”
Stalk and Seduce by PsiGuard | Evelynn Player
KhaZix Mains says “[5/10] You should be able to 1v1 him unless he has a level or item advantage in the early game. His early clear can be quite slow so if you full clear you’ll have a decent advantage over him. You destroy him later on if you have a tank shredding item such as Black Cleaver or a Last Whisper item. If he gets ahead he can be a damage threat as well depending on his build so be mindful of his burst. Be aware of the disruption that he can causes with his ult during a teamfight, always wait for him to use his R before leaping in unless you can get a pick instantly.”
r/KhaZixMains COMPLETE Guide to Kha'Zix [Updated Each Patch by KhaZix Mains | Kha'Zix Player
Veralion says “Respect his flash distance at all times, as body slam-flash is instant and will force you to take his entire burst combo or be knocked back into his team. He can do a silly amount of unavoidable damage with electrocute and a lead if you misposition. You should have no issues winning the objective game and outscaling him. He likes to take Aftershock most of the time, so spending an ult to try and pick him is probably not wise. ”
AP Shyvana Jungle: Fire and Death by Veralion | Shyvana Player
PsiGuard says “Pretty weak jungler and he's not strong until he finishes some AP items. You should be able to take over the early game before he becomes relevant.”
Rek'Psi by PsiGuard | Rek'Sai Player
Suseri says “His Ult is predictable but his Bodyslam can set you in a bad spot if he brings friends. Also if he Builds Ap you gonna have a hard time since you can't really use the damage reduction of your W against his CC. You could bait him with your W.”

Loul_60 says “Early game he can be a bit annoying with his Body Slam, but once you get form he's practically useless (unless they have a Yasuo, then watch out for getting combo'd). As Rhaast he simply won't have the damage in his combo to burst you or the tankiness to withstand you as Shadow Assassin.”

FrickLillie says “Gragas will throw you away and bully you, thankfully you can run away from him way more easily than nocturne but it's still very very hard due to his dash which will send you airborne.”

Pyroen says “Two displacements and a Belly Bump that trumps all - He will deny any attempt to 1 shot the enemy carry. he can be countered by double-jungling and taking his camps off the map.. Don't get baited by a low Graggy target under tower even if you have him marked. Belly bump and cask aren't to be trifled with.”
KaRMaX says “Better early and can 100-0 you at lvl 6. Just run away and wait for guinsoo.”
League Of Cursed says “Hold off on your drain if when fighting him until he uses his cc. Overall you should clear faster, but he will gank sooner. Just try to power farm and hard gank. ”

Dopamine_influx says “You have more damage and you can heal his burst, so it shouldn't be hard. He's weaker than you in 1V1 fights, unless he's fed. Be in his face and countergank/contest everything. Get edge of night and he can't cancel you with E anymore. (only thing that makes him annoying)”

JunglerBuilds says “Similar matchup to Sejuani, tank jungler, has good ganks early, poor objective control but high damage early for a tank. Can build an ap jungle item, so that makes him dangerous early, because of that damage. But you can dodge his skillshots when using twisted advance, so he shouldn't have an upper hand on you.”

Xeldom says “Even match-up. Depending on how gragas builds, this match-up could be easy or a nightmare. If gragas is building full ap you can oneshot him. Be sure to rush edge of night otherwise he can cancel your combo with his E (Body Slam).”

AsparWild says “Fat man has cc. do not like. no one likes this guy.”
DarkArbalist613 says “Gragas can one shot you, and his Displacement can kick you out of ult and kill you from lack of positioning. Overall just avoid him until you get a chance to collapse with your laners.”
AWierdShoe says “You can pretty much avoid all of Gragas' damage with your E, and your early game is much stronger than his. AP Gragas is not that tanky and you should be able to burst it down, just watch out for the surprising amount of damage he does. If you take advantage early you will win later.”

Dreadscythe95 says “He can offer CC as well though not as consistently as Ornn (or Sejuani) but he can also do a lot of dmg if he has an offensive build. He wouldn't be a big thread though if it wasn't of his latest buffs in patches 9.15+. ”
Comrade Eshgrim says “He is tanky and has respectable damage output. Watch out for his cheesy Flash+E and R into Q combos.”

Zekrow says “If gragas times his ult correctly and stays behind his team, your engage will pretty much be useless unless you zhonyas immediately or manage to get him inside your fear range. He also bursts pretty hard, if you are against him in the jungle, be wary of his damage. Your best option is to fear him and run away if he invades.”

Alessa Beaumont says “This tanky obese beer loving [Redacted] is as much as annoying as Pantheon. Compared to other junglers, Gragas clears really slow but can also do it as if it's like he can infinitely buy pots throughout the early game. Most of the time, even on early skirmishes, Gragas can easily survive your all-in combo thanks to his kit. If you forgot to ban him and if you're not okay with going back to base every time he combos you, then what you can all do is farm safely and gank the pushed lane if possible. Denying camps without dying is also advisable, but not required.”

KhaZix Mains says “[4/10] You should be able to 1v1 him unless he has a level or item advantage in the early game. His early clear can be quite slow so if you full clear you’ll have a decent advantage over him. You destroy him later on if you have a tank shredding item such as Black Cleaver or a Last Whisper item. Be aware of the disruption that he can causes with his ult during a teamfight, always wait for him to use his R before leaping in unless you can get a pick instantly.”

MrPuggles says “ Gragas is quite a difficult matchup, although difficulty depends on how good the Gragas is. If it is a good Gragas player, difficulty can go up to 9/10, but this is low elo so it's only a 7/10. Gragas will beat you in most 1v1s, making it so you have to avoid him. His ganks are very good early game. He is extremely good in teamfights making it crucial that he doesn't get ahead, as otherwise there is no stopping him.”

Intello says “It depends on how good the gragas is. If he Dash flashes you he can burst you down early, but if he doesnt or misses EW and start to kite him. You can handle him but I suggest pinging for a teammate. If you 2v1 him it shouldn't be too much of an issue. GET BANSHEE'S VEIL. It'll stops his knockup/stun combo and negate a ton of his burst.”

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

I Am Goliath says “Gragas top is actually fairly strong early laning so be careful, although not many people play this champion top lane anymore a gragas main is scary early game, once you have a bit of magic resist and HP items as well as your W max though this matchup becomes very easy since he doesn't have the burst to kill you and you can win long trades as well.”
GoliathGames' Ultimate Guide to Urgot (1M+ Mastery Points) by I Am Goliath | Urgot Player
Sovereign Kitten says “Just like Galio, Gragas has a nasty combo which can throw you off from your escape route, however, you can also use this to your advantage simply by flashing into his ultimate to send you flying in the opposite direction (over a wall, into your tower) but play it safe into his (Q) > (R) > (E) combo. Which is often set up by leaving his (Q) down for the full duration followed by his (R) as you draw near, while he (E)'s into his (Q) where he has planned to send you. It's very useful to build some magic resistance to help deal with such burst. You can use your (Q) to prevent his empowered damage from his (W) activation.”

The_Unf0rgiv3n says “AP Gragas is a very hard champ to deal with. He will play safe early and then after 6, start making thos OS plays on you. You can block his Ult to fall behind you and knock you forward, but apparently there is a bug where even when blocked, it still knocks you back and deals the full damage. That makes it nearly impossible to kill him unless you have flash.”

ERNESTSAURUS says “FLEET FOOTWORK / SPELLBOOK SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT = Gragas top is one of the most annoying picks ever, he can deal a lot of damage, outkite you, CC lock you and if he gets a lead its really hard to be usefull. In this lane you should look to only farm, don't try to trade with him, he has such a good disengage, damage and a bit of sustain that its not worth trading against him, they also mostly go Phase Rush so its really hard to get on top of him but if you somehow get a chance to kill him because he's low wait for his Phase rush to end and then Wither him, since Phase Rush gives you a slow resistance while its on. In mid game he will try to help his team by setting up kills so look to splitpush and force him to match you in the split until you are 4-5 items, once you get to that point look to do 5v5's he will do damage and provide utility but he won't be able burst you and kill you.”

wallobear53 says “Your spacing should be really well against him in this lane so that you have ample time to get out of his Q slow before he can reach you. Since he will be going AP, his Q will form the major part of his damage so make sure you dodge it at all costs. Build up a big wave before pushing in to prevent Gragas from being able to directly engage on your with his E. Otherwise, he can W>E>Q you and then finish you off with his Ultimate R quite easily. If he uses his W or Q to clear the minion wave, look to trade with him as he will have no reliable follow up damage to his E. Be wary of the enemy Jungler as Gragas can set-up ganks quite easily. ”

I Am Goliath says “You can win this matchup for sure, gragas should never really be able to kill you because he just doesn't have enough damage for how tank you can get and you should be able to hit your E's and some of your Q's on him, he does have pretty good escape but even if you're not able to kill him he really shouldn't ever had the damage to kill you especially after you pick up one magic resist item. ”

All ins are possible early, if u can bait his E, or if he wastes it, u can also out sutstain his mana too, but once he gets around 20% cdr just leave him and farm, no all in is possible post that point, DO NOT harras him close to his turret especially post 6 cause he will pull some woody fruity wombo combos on you and poop on you, mid to late just split and rotate away from him if he splits vs u, tax his jungler, do trynda stuff you know.”

Urgodzilla says “This one can be tricky. Gragas has good damage and CC, his sustain is also nice. Try to react to his E with your E: use it on him if you want to trade or away if you don't feel confident. Be careful about his R, it can throw you under his tower and you will be in trouble.”
Urgot, The Dreadnought by Urgodzilla | Urgot Player
ModxLoL says “Gragas top isn't meta currently(10.16), but it always comes back around eventually. When Gragas top is meta, he's a problem for Riven. His E completely counters her, and his W auto attack can go through your stun and knockup. He also has low mana costs, and good health sustain, so it's hard to get him to run out of mana without you losing too much health unlike the Maokai matchup. With that being said, there are still things you can do to win this matchup. Try to wait until he uses his q to poke/farm, so he can't get a free Q on you after he E's you in a trade. Also try to make sure you don't 3rd Q into him without having your W up if you can, so he isn't able to knock you out of your 3rd Q animation. Gragas out trades Riven in short trades, but when his E is down, you can look for an all in, but be aware that he can try to ult you away.”

EntxRecoil says “Fleet Footwork Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Dorans shield start. Gragas has pretty good sustain and can deny any kind of all in opportunities with his body slam which is really good disengage. Merc treads and/or tenacity on your rune page is pretty good against him because it works against his bodyslam stun. Gragas will usually build 40% CDR so his body slam will be up constantly to stun you and disengage. The way you beat gragas in laning phase is by outsustaining him (usually his mana pool) before he gets iceborn gauntlet (or another mana item) or if you can manage to land a few crits with spin damage you can maybe burst him down with ignite as well. If the Gragas is playing well, you can just play this as a farming matchup. In the mid-late game splitpush Gragas can be really annoying to dive, so just shove him in and out rotate him with your superior mobility.”

BloodyDream81 says “Match up relativement rare, mais pénible, gragas ne vas rien faire d'autre que farm à distance avec son A, et de temps en temps de faire un combo de sort en abusant du rush phasique, cela consiste a te dash dessus, A pour te ralentir et mettre un coup blanc booster par son Z avant de reculer avec le boost de vitesse du rush phasique. Ceci étant dit je ne met que 2 de menace, car il n'a clairement par les dégâts pour te tuer en début de partie, et si il fait une erreur d'utilisation de son E, tu le punis et le tue sans aucun problème avec ton fantôme. Essaie d'éviter son E quand il veut te poke, et ce sera une lane très facile.”

Zestysquid says “He can ult you out of the safety of your boxes post 6, but before then try to get him to use his dash in to your turrets. Be careful about letting him land it since it's often too short to bring him all the way into your box setup. Let him land Qs once in a while if you have a good box setup to bait.”

RainbowNova says “Gragas? Who dat? Is that the one that only gets played in ARAM by people who couldn't trade and had no rerolls? ”
DrMoneybags says “Take conqueror and this matchup becomes a lot easier. The true damage will help against his W and natural tankiness. Otherwise, consider a hexdrinker if he decides to go heavy AP for some reason. Grab cleaver if he builds tanky. You should be able to easily out-duel him midgame and lategame as long as you're not behind.”
E61K says “Go Doran's Shield to deal with his barrel poke and general sustain from his passive and go for Conqueror. All-in him every time you can and zone him off of farm and XP. He can't step up against you at all. The only form of safety he has against you is his ult and his Body Slam (which you can exploit by using your combo properly). He is probably gonna spam barrels to farm and never come close if he is smart. That's fine because he will miss a ton of farm that way.”
Vincheelo says “He can't do much to you, unless he is building AP then build MR. Use your Apprehend when he uses his Body Slam.”

Trixelkour says “His combo is straight up BS. Take Grasp or Phase Rush. He shouldn't be able to 1 shot you when you have enough HP. Get Banshee and Merc Threads into Abyssal and you should be fine. Take Heal with you to negate his combo damage output.”

lunarstaff says “This f*cker is scarier when AP than when tanky, due to the recent change to his W and all the CC he has.”

undeadsoldiers says “Lane Aproach: Anytime if he has no bodyslam up, you win long trades. Key CDs:E/R Notes:CP, stand behind creeps vs bodyslam, abuse his pushing to manipulate the wave - he only has AoE skills and cant freeze.”

Mouadyam says “dodge his barrels, save your e for when he uses his, dont get ulted into his tower”
TakeLPlease says “Gragas has tons of armor and health late game. Use their health and armor early game as an advantage. Late game will be hard to take them down. They will also deal lots of damage if you don't take them out early game, so beware.”
MrPuggles says “I've never been against gragas, but he shouldn't be able to kill you. Don't overextend and you should be fine.”

CaioOP1985 says “He has a lot of CC and is tanky even when building damage, so you got to watch out for him. By himself he isn't so bad to face, but with buddies around he can be a terrifying force. Avoid his E to prevent his full combo and you should do well.”

Tips Against Gragas in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Polarshift says “You have better waveclear and hes melee so you can keep poking him before level 6. Don't get hit by his bodyslam or he will chunk you for a big amount of your health and maybe even kill you after level 6 if he has ignite.”
Yeager says “Pre 6 he will try to poke you with his Q until you are low enough hp for him to all-in with flash. Get boots fast, and recall whenever you are low hp. Post-6: Watch out for his E+Flash into ult. Farm towards your second item banshee's veil and you are safe. ”
Yeager's Master Zoe Guide by Yeager | Zoe Player
Sylvan Lore says “This is mostly a troll pick, but if you disrespect it, he can take over your lane very easily. He will only kill you if you allow him to land his dash E on you to begin his combo or if lands an Ult on you towards him or under his turret. Both of these shouldn't be a problem with proper spacing as you will outrange both of these abilities with yours to poke him out and dominate lane. Recommend: Barrier and Dmg Build”

Phrxshn says “Rare match-up, but moderate. Dodge his Barrel Roll(Q), Body Slam(E), and Explosive Cask(R). and fight him without Drunken Rage(W) out. (Recommended Items: Liandry's Torment and Spirit Visage or Abyssal Mask) (Mega Adhesive negates his E) (Fling overrides his E) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Singed) (Outscaling Edge: Singed)”
Phrxshn's Guide To Singed by Phrxshn | Singed Player
FalleN3 says “Don't really see him in mid-lane anymore but you need to be careful against him. Pretty much a skill match-up but don't underestimate him. You need to be careful if chasing him as he can turn on you with his body slam because of it's low cooldown. It is possible for you to use your (E) to leap over all of his abilities, use this to your advantage. He gets tanky as the game progresses so look for kills elsewhere after level 6 unless you have a clear chance of killing him.”
Fizz Mid | FalleN3's Guide to Fizz by FalleN3 | Fizz Player
Dr Eggmund says “His all-ining potential is huge. If you lane against him be very cautious at level 6 as his ult will send you flying into him and his jungler for an easy kill on you. Poke as usual and if you know where the enemy jungler is try and kill him with the all-in combo.”

Yuki H. says “A very niche pick that you could encounter, and luckily not a very difficult one. Take note of the fancy combos Gragas can pull off post 6 with his body slam -> ulting and dunking you into the pre-placed barrel. Aside from the YouTube clips, just make sure to avoid walking into places with no vision since Gragas can be just sitting there, which wastes his time if you do not give him the kill. Laning is fairly simple. He has a barrel, and that's pretty much it, unless he plans on an all-in which consists of his body slam which can be dodged with decent positioning. ”

TheCatOfCheshire says “Not really hard, take care of his early burst, he got more dmg than you in early, but you can poke him with AA and land free charm on his dash. Use your ultimate to position yourself when he's ulting you. You got a better clear and a slightly better roam so use it.”

Brentonlop says “He is too tanky to burst. KIlling him will be hard but he wont likely kill you. Get ahead in CS or roam.”

Zoe Sparklepop says “Getting anti heal against Big Chungus would be good since he can fairly well tank your poke with Doran's Shield and his passive. Do not let him get his E off when you're out of the minion wave and watch for the ult, don't get pushy. He might look jolly and all but he'll drink you under the table if you're not careful.”
Gageowago says “Deceivingly hard lane to play. Will poke with his barrel constantly. Is not able to do too much damage before getting items but can disengage from you easily with slows and cc. Play safe when he has AP items because he starts to hurt. If you are low and he begins a body slam that looks like it will miss you are most likely going to want to flash because he might flash on you. His body slam is charmable. Also has constant sustain in lane because of passive, if your jungler stops his body slam by blocking it you might be able to get his flash or possibly even a kill.”

Fox1ne says “Nothing much about this one,It's pretty easy to harass and pretty easy to maintain wave control and sustain war against him. Make sure at 6 level don't get outplayed with the classic panunu combos since today gragas got some ability casting timers, so yea you have time to react to that,it's not like season 3.”

deixa akali open says “Gragas is a tricksy champion too. Be VERY CAREFUL when you fight with him and always find a way to outplay him.”
Vispectra says “Gragas mid isn't played that much but even when it is , it's not that big of a deal. He does have CC and Damage reduction which make him rather difficult to poke or trade with but so long as you mind his early burst damage you'll outscale him in no-time.”

CC Diana says “Thankfully you don't see Gragas mid very much, but when you do, you're in for some hurt. The difficulty of this matchup is largely based on how well the Gragas plays, but it's honestly pretty hard for him to mess it up. His Body Slam beats everything. He can use it to interrupt your ult and throw a fermenting Q in your escape path and even ult you into the fermenting Q and hityou with an empowered auto from Drunken Rage. The best time to engage on Gragas is if you get him low with poke damage or if he wastes his Body Slam on some other target. No Body Slam == free damage for you.”

Rosie Posy says “Gragas is fairly annoying when playing Akali since he can poke you down with his Q. His E is a good counter to your E or even your ult. His ult can easily blow you out of your W. You can usually win vs him early game but late game is when you need your team.”
