K'Sante is the newest champion coming to League of Legends.

With more than 150 champions for players to choose from in League of Legends, there are bound to be champions that players struggle to deal with. This is especially true for newer champions where players are uncertain of their abilities and how to play against them. In the case of K'Sante, League of Legends' newest champion, players will have one major question when he is officially released: Which character do I pick to best counter this champion?

Here are our five top picks for who we believe will give the pride of Nazumah a run for his money.

5 Best K'Sante Counters in League of Legends

1. Vayne

Vayne is a champion known for her high damage output, especially to tanks with high health. Her silver bolts do true damage, a direct counter to champions who build a lot of armor or magic resistance like K'Sante. If played by a competent player, Vayne should have no problem getting rid of K'Sante.

2. Aatrox

Aatrox if left unchecked can snowball his lane and win the game early for his team. If against a K'Sante, the Aatrox will look to further his lead by taking early game fights when the K'Sante is still weak and low leveled. Doing so will ensure that the K'Sante has no influence over the mid and late game by beating him early.

3. Gnar

Gnar is an AP scaling champion, meaning that if the K'Sante chooses to build more armor-focused items, it leaves him vulnerable to dying by AP damage. Gnar is especially good at this as his abilities allow him to do percent based max health damage, something incredibly damaging to a tank like K'Sante.

4. Renekton

Similar to Aatrox in the sense that Renekton is a lane bully during the early game, a good Renekton will attempt to stop K'Sante from obtaining a lead by fighting during the early game while Renekton holds an advantage. By dominating the early stages of the game, Renekton makes sure to starve K'Sante of any experience or gold needed to influence the game during the later stages.

5. Fiora

Similar to Vayne, Fiora is a champion that excels at dealing true damage. By hitting a champions vital areas, Fiora deals true damage, heals, and gains a burst of speed, making her a slippery champion for a tank like K'Sante to fight against. Players looking for a champion to counter K'Sante win against him during laning phase need to look no further than Fiora.
