Quick tips to play Kog'Maw

Farm up a storm during the early game and limit trading up until you have your first item. Then look to play hyper-aggressive once it is complete.
Try and go for extended trades rather than short trades with the enemy as Kog’Maw can melt champions with the additional range and stats from his Bio-Arcane BarrageW.
As Kog’Maw is very squishy and can easily die if he’s caught out, use Living Artillery Living ArtilleryR to check bushes instead of face checking them.
