Countering

  • Try to destroy MalphiteSquare.png Malphite's Granite Shield.png Granite Shield before using your nukes to ensure you deal your full damage.
    • In the lane, try to harass MalphiteSquare.png Malphite to break his Granite Shield.png Granite Shield and prevent its regeneration.
    • You might even be able to zone MalphiteSquare.png Malphite a little while he waits for the shield to refresh.
  • Don't even try to go against MalphiteSquare.png Malphite as a melee autoattacker because that is exactly what he excels against with his Brutal Strikes.png Brutal Strikes armor and attack damage steroid and Ground Slam.png Ground Slam attack speed reduction. These alone make him heavily favored in a trade, not to mention his Granite Shield.png Granite Shield.
  • MalphiteSquare.png Malphite's strengths can be effectively countered by going double AP, as opposed to the usual bruiser meta.
  • Note whether or not MalphiteSquare.png Malphite is spamming his abilities (especially Seismic Shard.png Seismic Shard) as he isn't exactly the most mana efficient champion around.
  • When chasing or being chased, it may be a good idea to hold on to any movement speed increasing buffs you may have until after he has used Seismic Shard.png Seismic Shard, as increasing your speed will also increase the amount of movement speed he steals and essentially nullify your boost.
  • Wait until the effect of his Brutal Strikes.png Brutal Strikes wears off before continuing to attack MalphiteSquare.png Malphite as it gives him armor.
  • If you are using a champion whose primary damage source is from auto-attacks, try to stay out of range of Ground Slam.png Ground Slam, as this will reduce your damage significantly.
  • MalphiteSquare.png Malphite will usually build armor to make the effect of his Ground Slam.png Ground Slam more useful. Consider getting a Last Whisper item.png Last Whisper to counter this.
    • Since MalphiteSquare.png Malphite is more likely to build armor than health, he will be very susceptible to high burst from magic damage. Consider this when picking champions to counter him.
  • Don't neglect the burst damage from Unstoppable Force.png Unstoppable Force in a 1v1. It has high base damage, not to mention a high ability power ratio.
  • Avoid grouping together with your allies to decrease the impact of an Unstoppable Force.png Unstoppable Force.
