An AP brawler of sorts, Rumble has a good early game and excellent mid game, and you should aim to get ahead in lane before he drops off significantly later. He's easily locked down in a teamfight, but is capable of dealing solid damage beforehand.  

  • Level 1 - Take E - Electro Harpoon, for the poke.
  • Level 2 - Take Q - Flamespitter, for the area damage and faster clear.
  • First Back - Work towards your Night Harvester. 

Tips & Tricks

  • Your ultimate is highly versatile, capable of damaging, protecting allies, engaging, zoning, or dividing. Use it according to the situation you find yourself in.
  • Smartcasting your ultimate is not recommended, for accuracy reasons.
  • To make the most of The Equalizer or Flamespitter, use Electro Harpoon first to slow the enemy. 
  • Use Scrap Shield when looking to escape, in conjunction with the slow of Electro Harpoon. 
  • When you use abilities, your Heat gauge increases. At 50 stacks, they become more powerful. Try to maintain a Heat level of 40-50. 
  • You will lose 10 Heat per second if you go four seconds without using an ability, increasing to 20 Heat per second after 2.5 seconds. 
  • Overheating prevents Rumble from using his abilities for six seconds, but his auto-attacks become stronger.
