Gnar Champion Spotlight

Discover the Mega Gnar beast within the Gnar boy and learn to master both sides of the Missing Link in the Gnar Gnar Champion Spotlight.

Gnar's a double-headed beast best played on the edges of fights in his Gnar Mini form, and in the enemies' midst as Mega Gnar Mega Gnar. During the laning phase, use basic attacks and clever casts of Boomerang Throw.png Boomerang Throw to trigger Hyper.png Hyper, which chunks your opponent down and helps you stay out of range of their retaliation. Hop.png Hop's a useful ability, too, but best saved for moments when you need to flee from jungle ganks or guarantee kills against your target. As teams start grouping, Crunch.png Crunch into fights as Mega Gnar Mega Gnar before using Wallop.png Wallop, Boulder Toss.png Boulder Toss and GNAR!.png GNAR! to burst down the enemy's weaker damage dealers and pummel their tanks.

Playing As Gnar Gnar
  • Managing your Rage Gene.png Rage is very important. Try to time out your transformations so you can get maximum benefit from both forms.
  • Position yourself next to walls to bait your enemies into getting stunned by your GNAR!.png ultimate.
  • Know your strengths! Gnar Mini Gnar is fast, squishy, and has high sustained damage. Mega Gnar Mega Gnar is slow, tough, and has high burst.
Playing Against Gnar Gnar
  • Gnar can't gain Rage Gene.png Rage for Rage Gene 4.png 15 seconds after he turns from Mega Gnar big to Gnar little. Use this chance to engage on his team.
  • Gnar's animations and Rage Gene 2.png resource bar change as he is closer to Rage Gene 3.png transforming.
  • Gnar's GNAR!.png ultimate stuns if he hits you into a wall. Be careful when fighting him near one.
