Tips Against Swain in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Chaeha says “One of the most volatile bot laners where if you take a single nevermove you simply die, he shoves you under turret and then repeatedly throws skill shots at you. Extremely unfun.”

Harambe Homie says “Swain bot currently is just busted into almost every lane. This is definitely one of the harder matchups to play against. His poke and constant harass can be extremely difficult to deal with at times.”

Harambe Homie says “Swain is by far the worst matchup to go into as Miss Fortune. He out pokes you, out dmg's you in extended trades, has incredibly high sustain with his ultimate and high enough burst damage to one shot you if you aren't careful. In the current meta, this is Miss fortunes only high threat counter pick.”

A_Drunk_Carry says “What a nuisance. His E range can hook you easily during trades. The W zones and slows if you get hit by it. His Q range is similar to your auto range, making for effective early trades. And forget trying to kill him once he ults and menaces your way. ”

Despasito66 says “Same thing as the draven PS: if you have draven and swain just dodge”
Boast says “Swain loves to face tank his opponents and usually fixates on hitting his stopwatch once you are about to Q into 4th shot, eating both of them up with they are mid-air.”

LordTowelYT says “When he roots you and pulls you, that's something that isn't optimal for your current situation. A.K.A you die”
Penguto says “He will root you then pull you towards him and do so much damage. Dont get caught or you will lose half your health by him alone, get cleanse if you are not confident enough to dodge his abilities.”
Penguto says “Swain Can be a pain but at level 6 you can steal his ultimate and you can outplay the enemy.”

Ekezun says “SUPERDUPER HARD, buy healing debuff items (executioner), try to push the wave under his turret, try to dodge his abilities as much as you can because when he roots you and pulls you in you're pretty much dead”

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

Yeager says “This will be a farm lane. You have to be careful of his E, as this is the only way he can get to you. Rush boots if you have trouble dodging it. The matchup is quite easy so just focus on farming for your first hex core!”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Doran + 2 Pots or Corrupting for his post 6 sustain. Relatively easy to kill pre-6 and can't do much after that also if you finish Morello. Focus on getting an early kill on lane but beware of his CC spell and jungler followup (it is predictable/quite easy to dodge however). Focus on Roam if he becomes too tanky and get kills elsewhere. Don't use anything else than ignite because he doesn't really have any kill power on you especially pre 6.”

LunarVortex says “His E is pretty easy to spellshield with how telegraphed it is. If he's close enough, he might try to Q you right before his E hits you to break your spellshield, be aware of that and time it well. In teamfights, zone him and prevent him from getting good value out of his ultimate with your Q and R.”

iZianni says “Fairly simple match up, dodging his combo is relatively simple since we can cast while moving. Our damage might not stick the best because of his itemization, but we'll usually have more impact early and snowball off that. Its the 25+ minute Swain that gets scary.”
Zianni's Challenger Syndra Guide by iZianni | Syndra Player
Avucado says “Play in front of your casters, if he e's it wont go through them. Start E because he has low range and zero mobility. Look for hooks and E's when you can. You do a lot of damage to him especially if you get ahead. If he uses R, just E away and wait it out. If he hits his E he will chunk you for a huge amount of damage and if he's ahead he can easily kill you. Take mercs if theres another ap champ and hexdrinker if he gets too fed.”

Ambitieux says “Swain isn't too much of an issue. Watch out for his e's and you should mostly win the lane. He is a slower champion then most and has no real mobility so Ahri is a natural predator against him. You can easily take trades pre 6 or after 6. This is mostly just a standard matchup of skill were you push him in. Deny him cs and try to look around the map for pressure. ”
Ambitieux's MASTERS Quick Guide to Diamond+ by Ambitieux | Ahri Player
Aegox says “As long as you're not hit by his root, you should be fine. He doesn't do too much damage if he isn't fed so just dodge everything.”
harris tegas says “he is a big tank and if he got fed he will do oneshoot and will be difficult to destroy him”

Fuzzmonkey says “Dodge his E and this match up is pretty easy early game, you might take some trades every now and then when you W in but other than that, be extremely aggressive early game. Always take ignite for this match up like you would against Vladimir. Level 6 would be a good time to have your ignite up so that he doesn't heal off minions when he uses his ultimate.”

Hullos says “ Strong cc sustain and poke. high CDs so good opportunity to go in once he missed stun. Post 6 you most likely lose the 1v1 unless he missed everything. Attempt to bait out ult and back off. Exhaust or TP can help here. ”
