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

LegendaryOstrich says “You win until Varus gets rageblade. With quick reaction speed you can dash or flash out of the way when Varus is channeling his ult. If you are ahead consider buying a QSS to counter the ultimate in case you get hit.”

StriveHD79 says “Right now just a weaker version of Ashe. Take cleanse if enemy support has heavy CC as well, you will need it for Varus R. Try to stay away from minion wave when he tries to charge up his Q to poke you.”

Vapora Dark says “Varus is a problem for Jhin, the range on his autos makes him a pain to out trade pre 6 and post 6 he can hardcore CC you, and with a lack of mobility its hard to dodge, causing you to be unable to attack back because of his auto range and lose the fight thanks to his Q/W burst. Focus on farming early and let your support/jungle create the pick, which thankfully is pretty easy to do due to his lack of any form of mobility. Not even a movement speed steroid.”

StriveHD79 says “Varus is similar to Ashe, depending on how much CC enemy support have you might want to take cleanse in this matchup. His R is a immediately snare that you should try to avoid. His trading pattern are usually with his Q charging up. E to slow you down to add in an extra auto attack. Keep your distance, harass and poke when you can, do not overly force anything.”

ELOSANTA says “A good Lucian player shouldn't lose this match. All of Varus's abilities can be dodged using Lucian's dash. If the Lucian player is experienced he should win, now this match is not impossible for Varus to win the matchup because he could time his skills after Lucian uses his E so as Lucian you have to know when to use your E. Lucian's E is 18 second cool down at level 1 and Varus' arrow is 16 seconds so if you use it to dodge something be aware that his arrow comes off cool down first. Varus' E is also another thing Lucian can outplay with his E, at level 1 Varus' E is a 18 second cool down which is equal to Lucian's dash. Unless Varus is engaging pre level 6 if he is just using it to poke it's not worth a dash because Varus can follow with a Q while you're running away. After Varus has level 6 save your dash for his R. Read his body language since it is a short range if we walks up be ready to dash away.”

Bouhhsolene says “His R is quite annoying but overall you outrange him and outdamages him late. Just don't go in his R and you win. Take trades in lane if you hit W.”

LostFishEU says “Why I put Varus as a major is simply the ultimate. His ultimate makes it really easy for his support to follow up with a bind / root / hook. Varus ultimate also roots you as Vayne from using tumble and using you ultimate invisibility, which makes it that you will lose out on a lot of damage. Pre-Level 6 Varus doesn't have too much. Varus has his Q and E that could chunk you low but you also have your tumble to dodge them.”

xSEASeahawks12 says “This is arguably the most skill-based match up out there. If you can effectively predict when Varus is going to release his Q and hop accordingly, you can avoid most of his damage. However, if he lands this, it's absolutely massive chunk damage that is nearly impossible to come back from. Buy a Doran's Shield every time and play very safe to avoid his insane poke. Before he hits level 6, you have to hope that your support can get on top of him, as his low mobility can let you stick onto him until he dies or Flashes. Unfortunately, after level 6, if he lands his ult you are dead. Always play behind your support, as even being behind you minion wave isn't enough to block his tendrils of death. If he's going Lethality, then just remember that you out scale him and pretty much punt on dreams of first blood or general laning success.”
Zoodyacc says “Beware of Varus R, after you get hit by that you most likely will be dead, however if you manage to avoid it, you can go all in on him. He has powerful W+Q that he can catch you up and deal enormous damage with, although there's a catch since you can dodge it with your Tumble [Q].”

Be careful, as a good Varus will try to ult you right after you Tumble. Buy QSS after BOTRK so you don't get stuck in his ult”
Vayne by Ichaid | Vayne Player
ZERO Destructo says “Avoid his Q at all cost. I recommend you to just farm on lane without much of a trade. If he lands his ult on you you're toasted, since it lasts so long. Also, be careful in fights and stay behind, and run even if he ults someone else since his ult can pass onto you if you're in range.”

Nik7857 says “Longer range then you. A slow. Poke. and giant CC ult. Better team fighting then you. He will probably play far back in lane and just poke you down. He is very easy to gank and he will guarantee flash if you engage on him. Win the lane and win the game ASAP. Buy qss after bork.”
jhoijhoi says “ Varus' ultimate, Chain of Corruption is a fantastic initiation, similar to Ashe's Enchanted Crystal Arrow. If you or your ally is hit by it, ensure you don't stick together, move in separate directions. Hail of Arrows is similar to Kog's slime trail, or MF's round of bullets - they're more often used for utility, as in slowing an enemy champion from fleeing or chasing, rather than for damage. Watch out for Piercing Arrow, like Cait's Piltover Peacemaker, you have fair warning when Varus will attempt to snipe you with this, as he will often try to increase its range and damage by drawing it out.”

Eccentricks says “All I can say, is watch for the E and Ult. I haven't fought many Varus players, so, play it safe is my best guess, because that is what you should do in most matchups at early game.”

spark2 says “Varus has a butt ton of poke but zero mobility. Go aggressive on him and dodge his Q's, but try not to push too hard. He's incredibly vulnerable to ganks, so try to leave some room for your jungler in the lane.”
[9.23] Sekkonds (Mid AP Ekko) by spark2 | Ekko Player
Laverenz says “See if you can kill him a time or two before he hits level 6. He's not really a big threat for Vayne before level 6 basic of his poor damage output, and skillshot-reliant poke. After level 6 you're done. If he hits you with Ult there's not much you can do against it. He will probably kill you after level 6. Try to dodge his Ult, because it denies your ability to Tumble, which is bad, because Varus' range is 575 and Vayne only has 550.”

MewlingRavenPaw says “Damage windows is the name of the game. Play passive till he uses a spell on your support or misses one before attempting to trade back into him. If you're uncomfortable with Kalista just play around your first back of berserker greaves before telling your support to look for opportunities to engage. Just be cautious of his E when using heal as the greavious wounds can easily lead towards a good fight going south. ”

NeinMeansNo says “Varus's Q+E can chunk Twitch's health especially when Twitch has three stacks of blight . Although Varus can be easily executed if Twitch's support has hard cc.”

LET´S TRY VAYNE W/MATCHUPS by Todomagia | Vayne Player
Krazioz says “This is the same as with Jinx, except that Varus has less range, even though that he can poke you down with his q. Varus relies heavily on his abilities so try to bait them out and then engage on him. Varus is biggest threat when combined with support like Lulu or Soraka. ”

DddyAwsmSauce says “He has lots of pokes but they're all dodge-able; try your best to dodge them. You'll take more damage the more stacks of Blighted Quiver you take. Try to go in and out when engaging with Varus; you don't wanna drag the fight long. His ult can't interrupt yours, so it should be an easy match up.”

jster131 says “Pretty even matchup early game, but if he gets ahead, your late game becomes a nightmare. Make sure not to make any mistakes or feed the varus because his late game power is no joke.”

Xerxes Is ADC says “keep your distance, move side to side dont run straight at him as he can show his abilities easier at you. becareful of his poke damage.”
Season 9.7 Diamond Draven ADC Build by Xerxes Is ADC | Draven Player
xTheUnlimited says “Really solid lane. Ahead in range and in early damage. Your only hope is to get an aggressive support and over-aggress him. Depends on the supporters. He has range advantage and will push you in at early Levels. You scale better into late game tho. ”
[9.6] Tristana ADC - Blast 'em ! by xTheUnlimited | Tristana Player
xTheUnlimited says “Similar to Sivir. He can push alot and has a strong laning phase and you have to watch out for his good Damage in lane. ”

Vayne To Dia ez pez says “Some people say that Varus is a counter. The only thing that makes him hard to play against it his GW on E. Other than that I do not see anything hard about facing him.”

SpicyAdCurry says “Varus is one of the Best ADC'S to counter Caitlyn in late game he simply Stack his Passive and Q late game and in early She loses trade with Varus cause of his Passive ”
Master Caitlyn Guide by SpicyAdCurry | Caitlyn Player
qasddsa says “Dodge his Q and poke him down with your Q. He has a weak early game but is strong mid-late game, especially in teamfights with his ultimate. You do not want to get caught by his ultimate, as that will put full stacks of his passive on you, letting him quickly burst you down. With a little bit of kiting to dodge his abilities, he can be easily killed.”
[9.2] Get Excited! | Jinx by qasddsa | Jinx Player
weinerman says “hah, pathetic, his range is monstrous but he is homosexual so hes probably going to lose concentration looking at ur ginormous weiner. also, everything he has is spell shieldable. spell shield anything he drops directly on u. it's always feelsgood time in the house when u spell shield a max range q when u have 3 spooky varus stacks on u and then u laugh maniacally and take a sip of your evil tea ahhaahhahahahhahahahahhahah. also late game when varus is by himself trying to be big weiner because he thinks he can because of his small weiner ult u can run at him first and pop ur spell shield, either he wastes ult and dies, or dies. :)))”
Dr3sko says “With his Q he can poke without punishment. If you have 1-2 stacks, care for his E”

Savagerayne says “This is even during lane as long as you do not get hit too much with his poke. Late game avoid his ult and try to remove him from the fights by being smart with yours.”

Seigemaster035 says “You win this fairly soundly, early is hard because of his poke but again, you out scale. Make sure to avoid getting stacked and avoid his ult.”
Twitch Guide by Seigemaster035 | Twitch Player
Robin Banks says “Immobile Adc with range advantage. However its very easy to proc your W+E. I'd say you win pre 6 as long as he isn't able to detonate any blight stacks. Haven't seen too many varus's nowadays so I'm a bit rusty on the knowledge of this matchup. ”

Ch33syB0y8 says “Varus has poke and can win the matchup with a good tanky support quite easily.”
Big Yordle Gunner Boi by Ch33syB0y8 | Tristana Player
iOwnPT says “Now this isnt 100% right, you all know it depends on the player but if the enemy Varus is good, he will give you a hard time poking with his E/Q where your axes will drop. Also, in level6+ if he gets you on his ult, you wont be able to catch your axe which makes you lose alot of damage.”
koyomilikesbloods says “His r is strong but it doesn't stun. Really it's his passive you want to watch out for. His slow is stronger than yours at early levels so just be careful. You can poke him easily because of where he stands in lane.”
