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

7daysko says “Place R on his turrets and watch him have a panic attack.”
Fuzzmonkey says “Work around when he has turrets near him. If he doesn't go in for trades, other than that don't go near him and just farm as best you can against him. At level 6 will be your best all in opportunity, make sure you hit everything. Biggest thing about the match up is to not let him hit you with the stun grenade, this will pretty much kill you if all 3 of his turrets then hit you after. Other than that, just play it safe and wait for him to use his cooldowns.”

eiensiei says “Level 1 I'll rush to lane and kill his little turrets as he places them if I can. Other than that, most of the laning phase is spent under tower for Lux and I focus on getting as much CS as I can. I avoid roaming in this match-up, as he won't follow and is going to push fast and get plates. This is not as much of a threat because of the kill pressure, but he'll easily get ahead by farming better while I'm struggling under tower. However, ganks can definitely shut Heimer down and make him think twice before playing up to my turret again, so I'll try to ping my jungler for assistance.”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Corrupting due to turrets. Hit as often as you can his turrets with your small Q (Q on circle). Use E when pushing, hitting cannons too in the process. Go for all ins whenever possible but predict and try to dodge his E (because the cannons will Beam you). Usually he will perma push you and ganks on him will be difficult but have no fear for that, just try to keep up with the push and focus on getting a kill either on him or on botlane. Very few players are experienced with Heimerdinger so try to abuse that.”

Fuzzmonkey says “Syndra is basically the biggest counter to heimerdinger since you can pick up his turrets with your W. Constantly poke him with Q as well. Easy win.”

LunarVortex says “Your W is great for clearing turrets and your E is great for blocking his stun. Time your E well so he doesn't break it before his stun. The worst that can happen to you in this matchup is that he forces you to lasthit under tower.”

Avucado says “Turrets are like Azir's, they can't see you themselves and wont shoot you in your W unless Heimer sees you himself. Don't try to trade with him at all, you will never win it unless you somehow hook him, but he can just block it by placing a turret in from of himself. Once he's 6 he can basically do over half your health under tower if he hits the stun. Once you see the missile version of his R just E away as fast as possible. Ganks are hard to pull off without a jungler with easy cc. Hexdrinker/mercs are good into this matchup.”

Ambitieux says “Laning against Heim is one of the most stressful. You outrange his turret with autos, make sure you get rid of setup level 1 and try to just farm the lane. Your advantage here is you ability to roam with mobility and his need to stay put in lane. Try to get jungler help around 6 and roam with him. I suggest putting wards in enemy jungle and look for plays there or in other lanes. ”
Ambitieux's MASTERS Quick Guide to Diamond+ by Ambitieux | Ahri Player
Eoba says “The matchup becomes extreme if he's running barrier. The only guarantee to winning this lane is to only W Q Auto, as Q'ing first will let him predict where you'll land...and then he will follow up with E.”
Yeager says “This is something i rarely see midlane because heimer is better top since he's oppressive against melee champions. Heimer does 1 thing: Stack turrets and shove people in. If you're fast, you can walk into one of the midlane brushes BEFORE the minions spawn to destroy his turrets with your team. If you manage to do that, the lane will become so much easier because you simply have to destroy every turret as soon as he places them. He will lose his ability to control the lane. If you can shove him in, his lane is doomed. Watch out for his E AOE stun. I often see heimer players using this ability right when you're about to attack one of his turrets. His W deals a lot of damage but it can be body-blocked by minions, so stay behind those when trading. Basically you use your range advantage to take down his turrets. Bait out his E (it helps having boots since it's a skillshot) and then go for trades. Even though i run phase rush into pretty much everything, it's really strong into heimer. You can counter his slows and dodge his skillshots with the bonus movement speed. ”

OverjarlZane says “Heimer is very annoying. While, yes you can deal with his turrets if he places them poorly in a lot of cases he'll be able to lock you down and 60% you with one e-q combo. Give him respect, may wanna run Barrier for this one.”

Deathfeather says “I hate the disrespect abuse pick but ok, you go even and outscale if you play well enough. also the nerfs a couple patches ago hit hard.”
xf3NNI3 says “The same thing about Vel'koz can be said about Heimerdinger. Extremely high range, huge poke and burst damage. He's also quite immune to ganks and can take your turret plates extremely fast, especially if you pair him up with another mage, such as Fiddlestick, Zyra or even Vel'koz.”

Eccentricks says “This guy got powerful as an ADC recently, and more played too. I have only faced one in this new patch, but, lemme tell ya, I got smacked DOWN. There is really nothing to do but dodge if you see him. That high win rate got there for a reason. Lets hope he gets nerfed back into his place soon.”

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

I Am Goliath says “Heimer is just simply annoying in my experience, very hard to kill him early but he also shouldn't kill you, he's going to just be pushing you in 24/7 so try calling for jungle help pre 6 before he gets his big turret. Try your best to push in this lane and atleast keep it in the middle of the lane, if you ever land an E on him you should be able to kill him quickly in one full combo, but do be careful of stopwatch/zhyonas which they usually get early since their turrets can do the work for them.”

Drake6401 says “Only difficult if your jungler never ever ganks. If you have a jungler with brain cells, you'll be okay.A very annoying laner no matter where he goes. If he's feeling extra petty, he'll go top. This is just a farming lane for the most part as he will run from every fight. if he tries to poke with his stun grenade then you have an opening to engage. Make it a very very short fight. PTA rune is recommended and use bushes as a get out method to disengage his turrets. He's terrible at lane control and inevitably overextends which makes him vulnerable to ganks. ”

Stinkee says “Only problem with Heimerdinger is the fact that he'll shove lanes to your tower nonstop. You need a mana item (Abyssal Mask) to keep up with him and shove your waves. You can actually throw his turrets with your E, allowing you to reposition them to better manage your waves. You can even throw his turrets towards your tower so your tower fires at it. He will not be much of a threat at all unless his jungler comes.”
Rhoku says “TL;DR - DIFFICULT MATCHUP. DON’T TAKE TOO MUCH POKE. START DSHIELD +SECOND WIND INTO MERC BOOTS IF YOU HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN FIGHTING BACK. IF YOU HAVE BEEN GETTING OBLITERATED, GO FOR NEGATRON CLOAK AND FARM UP. YOU OUT SCALE HIM IN 1V1. IF HE GETS COCKY AND STEPS TOO FAR UP, PULL HIM IN AND CHASE HIM DOWN WITH GHOST. ASK FOR JUNGLE HELP IF POSSIBLE. CONQUEROR WORKS SINCE WERE BUILDING DEFENSIVELY. FORCE FIGHTS WHEN HE DOESN’T HAVE TURRETS SET UP/IS NOT NEAR HIS TURRETS. FREE KILL WITH STRIDEBREAKER. A Heimer lane is poke city. Take EVERY anti poke thing at your disposal. His rockets do so much damage if he lands all of them that you might need to start triple dshield in order to have enough health to actually survive in this lane. On the bright side, he will almost ALWAYS be pushed up so he is very gankable. Not to mention how if he is overconfident and steps too far up, you can run him down. He is low hp so you can kill him very quickly. The trick is not dying after. Even if he isn’t there to attack you, his turrets will be. Unflinching in addition to Second Wind is great. I’d recommend packing tenacity and Rushing Merc boots if you think you have kill pressure on him. If he completely destroys you, just give up and build Negatron Cloak. On the bright side, you outscale him in the 1v1 as you tend to be very tanky so as long as you dont die and get whatever farm you can get, you will get to a point where he is free food for you. Feel free to kill his turrets using your Q or W. But later on, they become so tanky that the damage you take while doing so is not even worth killing the turret, especially since Heimer will just put another one down.”
ForgottenProject says “This is not a lane this is just Torment. You'll be under your turret for the first 15 Minutes of the game making you Question why even bother with this Game? [1]Take Teleport and Just Farm out the Lane, there's not much you can do here. [2]Take Corrupting Pot in Lane and Pick up Mercs so you dont get overwhelmed by his damage. [3]You can beat him if he doesn't have his turrets set-up or if you kill his turrets and still have Most of your Hp. [4] Don't ask for ganks just focus on farming till the Laning Phase is over, you will out-scale Hard.”

Kaizin says “Take a few early points into your E so that you're able to farm and clear his cannons. He'll most likely keep you pushed into tower so just try to farm as best as you can and avoid walking up to the wave near his turrets as he deals a lot more damage than expected. Second wind, early boots and health are all very good into this matchup. At level 6 you can try to go for an all in, just make sure you've poke him down to at least 60% with your E. That way you can kill him in one rotation of abilities. If he flashes I'd take the flash, let your jungler know and don't be greedy.”
BoilTheOil says “Take Fleet Footwork. You can't kill him in lane ever and he pokes you out. If their jungler or mid laner is also AP rush Merc treads against him. If your jungler ganks him you can probably kill him just by running into him and using E, just watch out for his insane burst. If they don't have any frontline for you to ult he outscales you. ”

Veng Shotz says “Rush mercs+ cowl/hexdrinker and pray you have enough damage to kill him before you die. If you dont you wont be able to play the lane. If you do you still wont be able to farm but you can try to kill him on repeat. Farm after he dies when turrets shut down, its all you'll get before he comes back and sets up turrets again. ”

Sovereign Kitten says “You can (Q) his turrets and kill them with 2 (AA), so your objective is to focus on this and avoid using abilities, if you prefer to not max (Q). However, if you do max (Q) you can kill his turrets in one (Q) so long as you have the AP early game, which allows allowing you to press your advantage of shoving him back and not setting up a perma shove into your tower. Keep on your toes scout! You need to be vigilant and keep avoiding all of his skill shots. Once his towers are down for a tiny second you can get in and poke him a little or continue to simply take his turrets down until he's out of mana. A good Heimer will keep you pinned under tower all game. ”

The_Unf0rgiv3n says “Avoid fighting him while he has 2-3 turretns around him. Blocking his stun doesnt mean winning the trade because his turrets deal A LOT of dmg early game. At level 6, dont fight him if he spawns the big turret! Wait for it to expire and go back in for the kill.”

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

Suseri says “Just farm don't fight get more points in W to sustain in lane if he pokes you under your turret. It's winable but not worth the effort and risk since he can just wait for your Q stun you to the place and let his turrets kill you while keeping his distance again.”

temple1997 says “Heimerdinger can use his turrets, stun and ult to burst you before you can even reach him - and even then, if you catch him his turrets and ult will probably kill you before you kill him or after.”
SoSheolH says “His damage doesn't come from him so hitting him won't do much. If you run into his turrets you'll get melted no matter what, and they'll pick off your carries even faster. Very dominant in lane and ungankable early, which is where you shine. Your W works on his turrets so you can at least stop their empowered attacks for a little bit, but they'll still attack you since it's just a taunt. Unless the player is really bad, you won't be able to gank this lane, at least not post-six.”
