Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia


Skill usage

  • When cast on a group of enemy minions,  Phosphorus Bomb along with  Missile Barrage allows  Corki to farm extremely fast.
  •  Phosphorus Bomb casts quickly and does good burst damage for a lot of the game. It can be used to harass an enemy last-hitting by autoattacking them and then quickly casting  Phosphorus Bomb.
  •  Valkyrie is a great farming, initiation, and escape skill. Use it wisely due to its long cooldown.
    •  Valkyrie can be used to jump over terrain and walls in the jungle and with Flash,  Corki can jump over 2 walls and escape most ganks.
    • Since  Corki is a squishy AD carry, you should rarely use  Valkyrie offensively. Use it to keep up range between yourself and the enemy.
  • Maximizing the damage and armor reduction of  Gatling Gun will require Corki to be facing and attacking the target constantly for its four-second duration. It must be activated carefully to reach its full potential.
  • The armor reduction from  Gatling Gun will be removed two seconds after the last tick of damage the enemy has taken.
  •  Corki can use other abilities and auto attack while  Gatling Gun is active, so blast away with  Missile Barrage and auto attacks.
  • Always watch your  Missile Barrage quantity before entering a fight so you don't run out of it early. If possible, prepare a Big One. (Have at least 2 stacks towards one.)
  • Remember that  Missile Barrage is an AoE skill, and it doesn't have to hit the enemy champion directly, it may be hit onto a nearby minion for the same damage. The Big One does more damage and has a larger AoE radius.

Countering

  • Try to stay away from the AoE of his  Gatling Gun. It can reduce your armor heavily if you are careless.
    • Try to pressure  Corki while he is using it. Making him turn around to kite will cause him to waste part of it.
  • Although  Corki has a great lane dominance, he is fairly squishy. Work with your lane partner to harass him often and/or kill him early.
  • Focus  Corki down if he leads the battle with his  Valkyrie.
  • When chasing him, do not overextend as his  Valkyrie can help him outrun you.
  • Stay away from the minion wave when he uses his  Missile Barrage. The spell deals AoE damage even when it hits minions.
