Tips Against Kog'Maw in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Dazlirn says “Kog'Maw with a Lulu is a very hard matchup for Draven but you win early.”
Sellsword says “Kog'Maw is rarely played and whenever you face him, he will be 90% likely played with a Lulu. This makes the lane very hard because Lulu can shield your Q poke and if you push them under their turret, they can easily run you down by using their W's. Sivir has no escapes so this trade usually ends up favoring Kog'Maw. Try to spellshield his Q if you can because it reduces your defenses if it hits.”
SolarYasuo says “annoying poke dodge his ult windwall all in you are chillin tbh ”

Amberdragon says “Kog'maw is squishy and immobile. After 6 his poke and long range will be a nuisance, but if you can get close enough to him you easily kill him unless he has a Lulu. Lethal Tempo rework made this matchup a bit harder for you though. Overall, easy to deal with in lane unless he has a Lulu or a strong peel/disengage support.”

Nom212 says “He's immobile and takes some time to get his damage out. You can mostly blow him up by throwing a Q Boomerang Blade. Respect his additional range from W Bio-Arcane Barrage. Combined with the slow from E Void Ooze you might end up being out of position. If his abilities are on cooldown he is much weaker and easy to pick off.”

Alvatorz says “Could be hard to kill with an enchanter support and an appropriate build but laning phase should be good for you. Don't worry.”

Amberdragon says “Same issue as Jinx - can out-DPS you from range. However, if you get on top of him he is easy to burst if he doesn't have a Lulu at his side. He is also easier to shut down in the early game.”

Axelent says “Kog can actually win this matchup pretty easily its hard for draven to reach kog if he plays with his W correctly and his e slow makes it hard to run him down in lane.”

IKeepItTaco says “◉ Kog’Maw is pretty similar to Jinx as he’s a long range hyper scaling ADC that wants to chill so the way you want to interact with him will be fun. ◉ Kog’Maw ’s default range is 500, but [[Bio-Arcane Barrage]] will increase it to 710 at max rank. Similarly to Jinx who goes from 525 range to 775 range. The biggest difference is JInx can switch whenever she wants while Kog’Maw ‘s is gated behind his ability that lasts 8 seconds. ◉ After his long range wears off then that’s when you want to poke him with [[Fishbones, the rocket launcher]] and bully him. ◉ Don’t try to trade or 1v1 when he has [[Bio-Arcane Barrage]] activated because it’ll shred your hp since it does a % of your max HP. ◉ Look to land [[Zap!]] into [[Flame Chompers!]] combos because Kog’Maw is extremely immobile and you might be able to make things happen! ◉ Win Condition: Abuse Kog’Maw when you find the right moments to. He’s very immobile and easy to catch so let your teammates know you’re ready to setup ganks with ease using your abilities. ”

Coorowko says “While your burst and sustain gives you the advantage close up, if your abilities are on cooldown or you get caught out at range it's near impossible to escape champs like Kog. Laning against these kinds of champs is incredibly hard because Diana relies on getting in close and bursting enemies, while they can usually play it safe and out range you every time unless you have help. ”

ThePieBeam says “This champ can oneshot you from across the lane. It's really better to just not engage tbh but if you really feel like doing so make sure his vomit carpet is on cooldown because for some reason it's one of the only abilities that can slow you harder than you can slow, and if you get caught in it he's just going to play outside of your Q range and auto you to death. If you're caught in the vomit floor your best bet is to just try and burst him to death. A R/W/Q combo can usually land if you're good enough to hit it and he's still as squishy as any other ADC so it's really just up to chance if you can get out of that particular scenario. Otherwise, just try to play far away and pray he isn't going AP just so he can fuck with you specifically.”

Callmebee says “A rare sight but I can't say I want to see more AP KogMaw's in mid. He pushes in really easily but you can one shot him if you do catch him and he is pretty easy to gank as he has no escape. Take barrier.”
TcKatfish says “[Press The Attack Runes / Long Sword and Refillable Pots start.] Kog'Maw can be played both AP and AD. Most of the Kog'Maws that go mid will run AP but I will explain both matchups just in case. Running the Survivability Build (AP) is your go to in both instances. This is because even when he goes AD he has a large amount of magic damage still in his kit to make that build optimal. [AD] AD Kog'Maw can't compete with Akshan damage so going all in every time you can is what you will do. Post Lvl 6 doesn't change a thing. [AP] AP Kog'Maw is more threatening if you allow yourself to get poked down by his E. Every time it goes on cooldown go all in. Post Lvl 6 Kog'Maw will start to hurt with his R's be sure to go all in before they stack up too much or dodge them as they are super easy to dodge. Still going all in on repeat is best.”
lonestar1870 says “Kog is very weak early, you easily stomp him in lane. He does scale well though and outranges you late game. You can get prio on the wave in the early levels, he needs at least level 6 to clear the wave quickly and (even then) he uses a lot of mana to push quickly. Try not to trade autos when he has W activated & avoid his E when possible. Try not to let him E you and the wave at the same time, but also dont let him hit Q on you. If he does hit Q on you, be careful going for a trade since it lowers your resitances. He outranges you later on in the game, but you should be able to kill him and snowball the game long before then. In mid/late game you can play around vision and try to get picks on him (but he will likely R bushes instead of facechecking). You can easily 100-0 him at 6 (6 ball ult with Q-E) if you land everything, or you can freeze the wave and get your jungler to gank for you. Kog is extremely vulnerable to ganks (esp if he runs flash/tp instead of flash+ heal/exhaust/ghost). Electrocute and PR are fine depending on your playstyle. I prefer TP since you really don't need ignite to kill him (since he's squishy). Ignite is rarely going to be the difference between killing him and not since if you get onto him he's probably going to die regardless.”

livikattt says “Does a gross amount of damage, especially late game. Be careful with his passive.”
WayOfTheTempesst says “Have not seen this champion mid since season 5? Very easy lane, windwall his E and dodge all his ultis with your E. He has no CC or escape so you can just freeze the lane on your side and when he comes up to try to cs you can easily all in him.”

Dj Memelord says “If he is ap he has low mobility and you will easily just run him over. Relentless hunter”
