Playing As Urgot Urgot
Playing Against Urgot Urgot


Ability Usage
  • Zaun-Touched Bolt Augmenter.png Zaun-Touched Bolt Augmenter is a strong debuff that can save your team from a lot of damage. Apply it liberally to enemy champions when fighting.
  • When farming, time the activation of your Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunters so that you fire it in between your autoattacks. That way, you farm as efficiently as possible and you can also push the lane very fast this way. If no enemies are nearby, begin farming a creep wave by hitting the back line of enemy minions with Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge and let the corrosion deal it's full damage to the minions while you destroy the close-attacking minions with your autoattacks and Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunters.
  • A Noxian Corrosive Charge.png locked-on Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter has incredible range and can hit even if the target is not visible to you, being in brush, the fog of war, and even in stealth.
    • Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter can hit through walls, giving an unexpected attack with a surprising amount of damage.
    • Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter has good range and hits unarmored targets hard even when not locked-on. Getting in the habit of using the skill shot occasionally, even when Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge isn't necessary applied, helps to throw enemies off their rhythm and makes you a threat even when your lock-on fails or wears off.
  • The Crest of Insight.png Crest of Insight will dramatically improve Urgot Urgot's fighting ability if he gets it; the high mana regeneration lend itself to constant Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter barrages, while the cooldown reduction allows him to lock on targets with Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge more frequently.
  • You will only Slow icon slow enemies as long as your shield remains active, so consider putting ranks into Terror Capacitor.png Terror Capacitor to provide Urgot Urgot with a crippling slow, better chances of maintaining it and greater durability in skirmishes.
  • Using Terror Capacitor.png Terror Capacitor with Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter can allow you to quickly catch fleeing opponents or deter individual pursuers.
  • Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge is capable of revealing the fog of war. Use it to scout without risk.
  • His Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser.png Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser should be used to pull enemies right into ganks and towers, but it also has a use in escaping should your escape path be blocked by an enemy.
    • Whenever there are any squishy targets on the other team, use Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser.png Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser to swap them into your team to get an easy kill.
    • Remember that although Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser.png Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser grants damage reduction, you are not invincible. Take note of nearby towers or enemy champions that can burst you down before its channel is complete.
    • Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser.png Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser suppresses the target while channeling, so it can be used for deterring an enemy's escape for your team to finish off your target. It can also be used to interrupt your enemies' channeled spells, such as Katarina Katarina's Death Lotus.png Death Lotus.
  • Urgot Urgot's skillset makes him most effective in eliminating the enemy team's carries, but don't overestimate his toughness. In general, it is a good idea to keep your distance from DPS champions until they have been weakened or separated.
  • Urgot Urgot's Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser.png Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser can be used over walls to pull an enemy through it, provided that he can see the enemy. This can be used offensively and defensively either when you are being chased, ganking in the jungle, or caught in a teamfight.
  • Urgot Urgot is great at harassing. Use the long range and reasonably wide area of effect of Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge to weaken enemy champions with impunity while simultaneously farming.
  • One to take down an enemy champion as Urgot Urgot is to conserve your abilities for chasing. As soon as your target begin retreating, pop your shield and keep hitting them with as many autoattacks as you can until Terror Capacitor.png Terror Capacitor's time limit is almost up, then catch your victim with Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge and follow up by striking with as many Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunters as you can before your opponent is out of range.
  • Urgot Urgot's passive damage reduction from Zaun-Touched Bolt Augmenter.png Zaun-Touched Bolt Augmenter, extra survivability from Terror Capacitor.png Terror Capacitor, and the armor reduction from Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge make it extremely difficult for opponents to gauge his strength, frequently causing enemies to trade blows with Urgot Urgot and usually take more damage. Don't overestimate your foe's intelligence or you will miss opportunities to take them out when they make this common mistake.
Mastery Usage
Item Usage
  • Stacking high amounts of attack damage on Urgot Urgot will make his Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter and basic attacks more powerful.
  • Last Whisper item.png Last Whisper is also a good late-game item if the enemy team is building armor to counter you.
  • Urgot Urgot can be mana-hungry in the laning phase, but buying Tear of the Goddess item.png Tear of the Goddess should eliminate mana problems for the rest of the game. If you decide not to focus your build around picking up Manamune item.png Manamune early, other mana regeneration sources are recommended.
  • Guardian Angel item.png Guardian Angel can be an effective defensive item for Urgot Urgot as his Terror Capacitor.png Terror Capacitor can offer the additional time necessary for a last escape, or give you time for cooldowns to refresh so you can quickly focus down low health enemies who linger nearby.
  • Another good option may be Randuin's Omen item.png Randuin's Omen. It's armor and health boost will make you hard enough to kill after switching places, plus it's slowing component may prove useful when escaping or after switching places to slow surrounding enemies and make them easier to be caught off.
  • Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force is a strong if unorthodox item on Urgot Urgot. Although it does little for your long-range Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter combo, Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force greatly increases his presence in close combat due to constant Sheen item.png Sheen procs.
    • Another unorthodox item late game is Hextech Gunblade item.png Hextech Gunblade, although very effective when combined with Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force. As Urgot Urgot has no natural sustain and life steal only benefits him as fast as he can attack, staggering his autos with Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter will allow Urgot Urgot to maximize his healing (as Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter benefits from full spell vamp), granting an uninterrupted stream of healing, while the Ability Power granted adds slight bonuses to his Terror Capacitor.png Terror Capacitor.
      • Instead of Hextech Gunblade item.png Hextech Gunblade, Death's Dance item.png Death's Dance may be taken. It also provides healing via Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter, but grants much more useful statistics as cooldown reduction and lots of attack damage. It's damage mitigation component also allows him to survive longer after Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser.png reversing.
  • Attack damage items are worth buying for the early game; however, due to the risk of using his ultimate in the late game, it is recommended to build some survivability items afterwards.
  • Cooldown reduction can let Urgot Urgot fire more locked-on Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunters before the Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge debuff fades. With no CDR, he can fire 3 shots per lock on. With 16.7% CDR, he can fire 4. With 37.5% CDR, he can fire 5. However, the above values are mathematical and do not take into account input lag or delay.
  • Glacial Shroud item.png Glacial Shroud is an effective mid game item for Urgot Urgot as its armor helps him fight physical damage champions, while the mana and cooldown reduction help him spam his Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter and adds to the damage from Manamune item.png Manamune. Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart is also effective for the same purpose.
  • Youmuu's Ghostblade item.png Youmuu's Ghostblade is another possible purchase for Urgot Urgot during late game, since its active helps him, and is upgraded from Serrated Dirk item.png Serrated Dirk, which gives him flat armor penetration.
  • Another way, however mostly tanky, is to buy Righteous Glory item.png Righteous Glory. It's haste component may help you cast place-switcher, health bonus will make you more hard to kill and it's mana boost combined with Manamune item.png Manamune will grant you some more damage.
    • However, if tank items are good on Urgot Urgot, you cannot ignore getting some attack, because enemy team can just ignore you. One or two are enough,three at max if your team does not have a tank/initiator.
  • An early Hexdrinker item.png Hexdrinker is great because in addition to improving Urgot Urgot all around, it can later be upgraded into Maw of Malmortius item.png Maw of Malmortius, which adds both attack damage and magic resistance, and as such it can complement Urgot Urgot's damage output with improved survivability.
  • Furor item.png Furor is a strong upgrade for Urgot Urgot's boots as his Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter hits will proc its speed increase. This allows him to kite and chase enemies very well.
  • Urgot Urgot does only physical damage, so getting armor items is effective in mitigating his DPS.
  • Move erratically to avoid being hit by Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge thus preventing lock-on with Acid Hunter.png Acid Hunter. Experienced players will often wait for you to move into position for an attack or minion kill. Use feints to cause them to misfire.
  • Champions with gap closing abilities can combat Urgot Urgot effectively by staying within close range and timing their dash to coincide with his Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge.
  • Urgot Urgot lacks mobility and is vulnerable to champions with good DPS, especially those with frequent disables or items such as Frozen Mallet item.png Frozen Mallet.
  • Avoid committing to a close quarters 1v1 battle with Urgot Urgot unless you are certain of an overwhelming victory. His abilities make it difficult to escape a losing battle.
  • Urgot Urgot tends to be rather predictable, in that whenever he lands a Noxian Corrosive Charge.png Noxian Corrosive Charge, he will almost always chase the target in order to land his full combo. This can be easily exploited to bait him into overextending for a gank.
    • Keep in mind, however, that after Urgot Urgot reaches level 6, Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser.png Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverser can allow for an easy escape by switching places with the ganking champion. Either make sure the ganking champion has a way to block or break the suppress, or be prepared to interrupt the channel. If he is unable to use his ultimate to escape, Urgot Urgot is usually a relatively easy kill.
  • Be mindful of Urgot Urgot's ultimate, as you or your team can quickly be pulled into danger. Prevent this by having spell shield/cancel items such as Banshee's Veil item.png Banshee's Veil or Quicksilver Sash item.png Quicksilver Sash.
