Riot Games announced League of Legends’ newest champion in the form of Akshan. As a fairly mobile marksman who can single out targets with ease and contains the ability to stealth, he’ll need strong counters. Here are the three best counters to Akshan in League of Legends.

Due to Akshan’s mobility and his overall kit, a good way to counter him would be with hard CC or match his mobility.

3 Best Counters to Akshan in League of Legends

Leona, the Radiant Dawn

Leona is by far one of the most suffocating champions in the game. With her seemingly endless abilities to CC, Leona can stick to targets effectively and with ease. Leona is just go, go, go from the get-go, and it’d be a perfect counter to Akshan. Akshan, a champion who wants to fight fights on his own terms, Leona would prevent him from doing that.

Nautilus, the Titan of the Depths

Perhaps even more suffocating than Leona, Nautilus has his own form of CC. Having nearly all of his abilities in his kit be a form of CC would be a great equalizer to fight a champion like Akshan. Be it his passive root, his hook, or his targeted knock up, Akshan would stand zero chance.

Pyke, the Bloodharbor Ripper

The same Pyke can be a great support for Akshan, he could be a great counter for him. His ability to match his energy of mobility, single down targets and stealth would allow him to keep up, thus thwarting Akshan’s game plan.
