Zed counter tips
Laning Against Zed
Zed’s skirmishing power is very high early on. Keep this in mind when attempting to fight him in the very early game.
When invading the enemy Zed, try and wait inside a bush or only go in on him when he is low on energy so he will find it hard to trade back with you.
Zed’s early scuttle crab prowess is very strong. If you’re weak at level 3, don’t bother trying to contest the scuttle against him as he may probably kill you. The less gold Zed gets early- the better.
Strategy VS Zed
As Zed is an Assassin, he will look to take down targets that are walking around the map alone. Avoid moving through the river if it’s not warded. Keep a constant eye on the map and do not put yourself in the same area as Zed if you don’t know his exact whereabouts.
Expect Zed to flank and takedown squishy targets with his Ultimate R. Ensure that your flanks are warded when sieging an objective so he cannot get the jump on you.
During the mid-game, Zed will often be in a side lane split pushing. With this in mind, you could use the fact that he cannot impact the fight to start a team fight 4v4 or 5v4 with the numbers advantage.
Zed Power Spikes
Zed will start ganking as soon as he hits level 3. Expect him to go for early ganks to get kills.
Whenever Zed hits level 6 his kill pressure increases once again and he will look to go for kills whenever he has his Ultimate R available to him. Expect him to play aggressively once he gets the level up.
Zed is rather good in the mid-game as he will have 2 items and be able to assassinate any squishy target he comes into contact with. Avoid walking in areas where you know Zed is or has recently been in.
