Top 3 Fiora Counters

Fiora can be quite annoying in the top lane. She has insane late game scaling, and she is one of those champions that you immediately think of when you hear the word ‘pentakill. 

Fiora is a formidable opponent. We are here to help you. Let’s not talk anymore. We will now look at three champions you can choose when Fiora is locked in. 


Which Champions Are Counter-Fiora?

Fiora’s one weakness is her early game. You must exploit it to your advantage in order to counter her.. You likely allowed her to scale, which makes her insanely strong in the final game. If you have an early game champion who can finish a game before she hits her late game spike, you’ve effectively won the game. Let’s now look at some picks to beat Fiora. 

3. Renekton

Renekton is a counterpick for Fiora. He’s a great early game lane bully, and his oppressiveness won’t give Fiora any chance to start winning battles to scale up. Sure, late game Renekton is probably one of the worst picks — hence why Riot is giving him a buff late game in Patch 12.9 — but he will outplay Fiora in every single early game. He is much more durable and does a lot more damage early than Fiora, so he can often take down Fiora.

Renekton can also play with his stun which may make it difficult for Fiora players.. Since he can either stun an opponent right away or elongate the attack, a Fiora player might not be able to time their Riposte right, which is their only way of defending against the stun — unless she’s got her lunge ready and she can dash away. You’ll be able get a few kills, and you will have the advantage over Renekton or Fiora. 

2. Urgot 

Urgot is another champion that can beat Fiora. Both champions wish to dance around their rivalsAlthough it’s possible, Urgot may not be the most graceful. While each champion wants to hit the other champion as often as possible Urgot has a range advantage that allows him to be more efficient than Fiora especially in the beginning.

Fiora will not be able to be as aggressive in the beginning game because Urgot is so destructive You can effectively eliminate her from the game by eliminating her immediately. Sure, his dash is easily evaded by Fiora, but it’s his escape tool, so only use it in case of  emergency when playing Urgot. This is something you’ll need to keep in mind. 


1. Gangplank

Gangplank, the most difficult champion in this list who can counter Fiora, is undoubtedly Gangplank. He is one of the Top laners are the most difficult to masterFiora is a bit of gum on your bottom if you can place his barrels and work them. Although annoying, it is not dangerous.

Gangplank is able to consistently poke Fiora down because he has a significant range advantage. Thanks to his barrels. Fiora won’t be able against Gangplank to play her game. All of us know Fiora is looking to trade and get in for the kill. Gangplank, however, has everything he needs to stop Fiora. Gangplank’s barrels can slow Fiora down if she gets too close. His passive allows him to move fast and even if Fiora comes close to him, any slowing down from her can be countered by his oranges. It’s as simple as that. 

Gangplank is the best option if Fiora is a problem. His poke damage can be insane, and in the end game, his global ultimate can make an impact on the map. Fiora, however, will need to be part of the team battle to have any effect. Gangplank is too much for her to defend herself with her parry. 

Those are just some of the many counters to Fiora. Sett can be selected as well. You can choose to play with him, as he is able to keep up Fiora’s pace and even beat her in the beginning. There are There are multiple optionsDon’t be afraid if your opponent locks you in. There are options that you can use to keep her away from 1v9ing.
