Viktor counter tips

Laning Against

Do not trade through levels 1 to 3. Consider his

Q to be two abilities. It is an auto reset, damage ability, and shield all in one. In the time you get one ability or auto off, he will hit you three times and block some of your damage.

It is very difficult to bait out his

W as a mage or ranged champion, but when it is down he is vulnerable to ganks since he will have no defensive options left. In addition, many Viktor players do not put a point into
W
until level 4.

Once you are past the early levels (1-3), take more aggressive trades if your champ is capable, since you want to force him to back with less than 1150 gold, delaying his upgraded

E and his wave control.

Strategy VS

Viktor is quite safe when his upgraded

E is capable of clearing caster minions. In addition, he also will have
W
to slow the wave too. So try to create a stacked wave and try to roam while he is clearing the wave.

You want to snowball the map before he gets three or more items. Viktor is a hyperscaling battle Mage- the longer the game goes, the stronger he gets in fights.

When approaching team fights against a Viktor, avoid playing front to back. Viktor excels in those situations. He will stall or deny your engage with Gravity Field

W, and use all his AO
E
damage at his disposal to melt your entire team. Create different angles of approach, force him to use
W
early and engage where it isn't placed.

Power Spikes

Completed Hex Core is a huge spike for Viktor. It gives him the ability to quickly wave clear, stall the wave as needed and provides great mobility. It is also one of the most gold efficient items in the game at Level 18, part of the reason he is a fantastic late game champ.

40% CD

R and three items. Perfect Hex Core, Lich Bane, and Luden's Echo plus Transcendence in runes is the most common way to achieve this. At this point, Viktor starts taking over teamfights.
Q
is on a 3 second cooldown and
E
is 6 seconds, giving Viktor a ton of damage and mobility within fights.

Full build. You need to one shot him at this point by catching him out or isolating him from his team. He will win his team any front to back fight if he is enabled- so stopping him from doing this is key.
