Summoner Spells Back to Top

Flash is a must when playing Rumble since he doesn't have any escapes except the slight movement speed from his W and the ability to kite enemies with his E.


You can also do some nice early combos if you have poked the enemy low enough by using Flash+overheated AA+Q and Ignite.

Ignite is also your core summoner spell since it deals damage over time as most of your kit and reduces healing. 

Teleport is a also decent against some of the harder matchups or when you need to create even more map pressure >>> global ultimates ;).

Junkyard Titan (Passive)- When you use spells your heat bar will rise and when you get to 50% heat u get a boost on all spells. U usually want to keep it at 40-60% . When u get to 100% heat you become overheated which silences you for a few seconds but boosts your autoattacks. If used correctly the overheat can give you a good burst of damage when used in succession with E Q.

Flamespitter (Q)- Rumble's main AoE source of damage which you use to poke enemies on lane , highly effective vs melee champions. You still need to be careful though because it will push your lane quite hard and you are prone to ganks.

Scrap Shield (W)- W allows you to negate a good amount of damage and trade on lane with your opponent. It also gives you a boost of speed which is useful when you want to roam or escape ganks.

Electro Harpoon (E)- Your second damage source allows you to poke enemy from distance or to last hit minions with it. You can also stick to your enemies with the stacking slow .

The Equalizer (R)- It's been changed quite a bit by removing the instant damage from it making it and does more damage over time instead. You can still snipe enemies if low enough with the ult even in the fog of war. It is a great tool to initiate teamfights or follow-up engages, best used in jungle fights due to narrow spaces. You should make sure you always ult first during a teamfight so you don't get overheated before. His ult is so strong you can turn around ganks by putting it under you and fightining 1v2 getting 1 kill if not both.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    It is the best start on most matchups since it gives you a nice sustain and a bit of tankyness.
    REJUVENATION BEAD 5x POTS AND STEALTH WARD. THIS START ALLOWS YOU TO STAY LONGER IN LANE BUT YOU ARE LESS TANKY THAN THE DORANS START.

Core Items

    General core items on rumble which gives you good damage and defensive stats.
    You can also rush Liandry which is a big bully against tanks and mr stacking and great for early teamfights.
    Example of full build
    If enemy is stacking magic resist, go for voidstaff/abyssal after Liandry.

Situational Items

    Rush this if you get bullied by melee champions.

How to build Rumble

Rumble's main source of damage are spells , so you will need to get magic penetration.

These are the main items that give rumble his mpen:  3020_32.png3136_32.png3001_32.png3151_32.png3135_32.png

After your first back you should be able to buy your Haunting Guise giving you a good health boost to stay longer in lane and damage to trade like the cute little monster he is. If u cannot buy it on your first back just get a few of its components and some wards + health pots.

Stealth wards are Rumble's best friend since he is pusher and has no escapes whatsoever so you need to prevent ganks.

VS

Aatrox

Medium

This matchup can be a bit hard sometimes due to his passive reviving him. If u manage to pop his passive on lane by youself or with the junglers help u can pop him up everytime his passive is on cooldown.

VS

Akali

Easy

Laning against Akali shouldn't be much of a problem as long as you don't let her proc the Q she throws at you and you can harras her from distance. You can also use some random E shots and the Q in her shroud hitting her for some damage.

VS

Darius

Hard

Darius is quite a strong pick against Rumble. On this matchup you should focus on farming and try poking him little by little if you managed to bait his E or if it's on cooldown. He should be pushing pretty hard to ask for jungle ganks if necessary. When you hit lvl 6 if none of you backed from lane u should be able to fight him quite easily since he won't have mana for his ultimate.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

In general the only time you can kill mundo is between lvl 3-5 if you manage to get a good slow on him and do your combo. If he's too tanky for you to kill just focus on farming/pushing your lane and doing ganks on middle or helping with counterjungling. Rumble is still stronger than mundo when it comes to teamfighting power.

VS

Elise

Medium

When playing Rumble vs Elise you might want to consider maxing W instead of E since it will mitigate most of her Q poke and she'll be soon oom. Try to stay as healthy as possible since her spiderform Q is an execute. Try to harrass her whenever you can with your spitter and harpoons even under turret. When you get to lvl 6 if you see a good chance  you can go all in on her since you gain a huge power boost unlike her.

VS

Gangplank

Easy

Gankplank is quite an easy lane for Rumble. Avoid fighting at melee range since his passive is very strong and wear him out with your spitter and harpoons. You will eventually bring him at a health low enough to burst him down.

VS

Irelia

Medium

When playing vs irelia you have to be aware of the minions health since she will most likely do her Q-E-W combo on you. When she jumps try to slow her and punish her with your Q whenever she turns back. Poke as much as you can and if she is low enough you can burst her down with a good overheat combo.

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

Try to avoid fighting Jarvan much till lvl 4. You should be able to trade with him easily by then. Go all in whenever you can, you are much stronger than him at lvl 6.

VS

Jax

Medium

If played correctly this shouldn't be too hard for Rumble. Poke as much as possible early and whenever he jumps on you with his stun have your shield up to negate some of his damage and poke him in return with your E-Q. If he goes all in on you just drop your ult on top of you and you should win it fairly easy.

VS

Jayce

Medium

In this matchup you want to play passive early and try to mitigate some of his poke with ur W. Whenever he jumps and knocks you back try to harpoon him and chase down with your spitter. Abuse your level 6 since you gain a huge power boost.

VS

Kennen

Easy

Easy lane for Rumble despire Kennen being a ranged champion. Don't let him proc his W when u have stack on you whenever you can. After using his Lightning Rush (E) he is very vulnerable and you can all in him for a good chunk of damage with your overheated combo.

VS

Kha'Zix

Medium

Rumble counters kha'zix quite well. Poke him as much as you can and stay close to minions so you won't get extra damage from his isolation. Whenever he uses his leap on you harpoon him and punish him with your spitter.

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Playing against Lee can be either very easy or very hard. Don't make too many mistakes early or you are going to have a hard time. From lvl 3-4 you can play aggressive and outdamage him.

VS

Malphite

Easy

Rumble is a hard counter for Malphite. You should be able to trade with him all the time and bully him out of lane. Just keep the map warded since he can kill you at 6 with his ult and help from jungler. 

VS

Nasus

Easy

Nasus needs to farm a lot in order to be useful. Zone him hard early since you can outdamage him easily and he can do nothing against you.

VS

Olaf

Medium

Olaf if very strong early game. Try to harass him and stay out of his E range. You could play aggressive against him at level 4.

VS

Renekton

Medium

Try to poke as much as possible early game his cooldowns are pretty big.Your can trade more effectively with him at lvl 4. Don't let him stun you with fury bonus, he will do a good chunk of your health. 

VS

Rengar

Medium

Rengar top is quite fearsome , if you make one mistake he will snowball hard. Try to to keep distance from bushes since he can jump on you and farm it up. You should be able to handle with him from lvl 4 onwards. If you have problems farm as much as possible and ask your jungler for ganks.

VS

Riven

Medium

Try to poke her early and bait her cooldowns. She needs her Q and E to get close to you so whenever she does it slow her and go in with your flamespitter. At lvl 6 you can all in hear quite easily with your overheat combo +ultimate. A good riven will snowball hard if given an early kill so avoid that.

VS

Shen

Easy

Fairly easy lane for Rumble, you can mitigate most of his poke with your W. Make sure you have minion advantage when you trade with him since he can taunt you and the minions can do to you a large amount of damage. When shen gets 6 you can't stop him from ulting away. When he does ult and he is close to you deal as much damage as you can to him (ultimate+ignite e E-Q) and your team might kill him where he goes. Push your lane hard when he teleports and put some turret damage or get it

VS

Shyvana

Easy

This is a fairly easy matchup for Rumble. You can poke her a lot early with your flamespitter and if she comes at you with her W u can harpoon her and punish with your spitter.

VS

Singed

Easy

Singed is one of the easier lanes for rumble since he needs to get close to minions to farm and u can harras him early a lot with Q-E. Whenever he gets near u to fling you just E him in the face. If u can kite singed well the lane is yours.

VS

Teemo

Easy

You are able to absorb most of his poke with your W and continue to poke him whenever your cooldowns are up. At lvl 6 you can all in him and he won't be able to do anything since he'll probably be oom.

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

Against Tryndamere you must poke him a lot early to force him to use his fury for his heal, thus he gets less chances for lucky crits. If he spins on you simply harpoon him and chase down with your spitter. You should be able to kill him quite easily pre 6.

VS

Vladimir

Easy

This should be and easy lane for you since vlad's cooldowns are bigger than yours and you can harass him much more early and mitigate some of his damage with W.

VS

Warwick

Medium

Rumble versus Warwick is pretty much a farm fest. He can sustain through most of the dmg you put on him. You can only kill him if you catch him out of position without mana before first back, otherwise just wait for your jungler to gank. He also won't be able to kill you without jungler's help.

VS

Wukong

Medium

You will be able to poke him early but at lvl 4 he might start to go on you. Try to mitigate some of his damage with your W and follow up with some poke. Whenever he engages on you with his ult put your ultimate on top of you and you will be able to fight him.

VS

Xin Zhao

Hard

Xin is one of Rumble's hardest counters. If you approach to poke with flamespitter he will just jump on you and chunk half if not more of your life with his combo. Try to play as passively as possible and farm it up. Fight him at lvl 6 if you see a good chance or ask for jungler ganks.

VS

Yorick

Hard

This is another tough matchup for Rumble. You have to play passive and farm it up and abuse nearby bushes to de-agro his ghouls. If you manage to stay healthy enough and neither of you backed 1-5 u can fight him since he'll be likely oom, otherwise just play passive and wait for jungler ganks.

VS

Zac

Easy

Same as Malphite just don't get baited by his passive. You should be able to win this lane easily.

VS

Zed

Easy

Zed is quite an easy matchup for rumble. You can mitigate mote of his poke with your W .

Whenever his W is on cooldown you should poke him for a good amount with your harpoons + spitter and overheated attacks till he is low enough when you can all in him.

About me Back to Top

Hello, my name is Nerfx and this is my first guide about my favourite champion in The League: Rumble The Mechanized Menace. I've been maining him since season 2 currently sitting in challenger on EUNE and diamond 1 on EUW after 6 days from unranked on my smurf Nerfx v2. He is a very strong top laner dealing high amounts of damage on lane and has a game changer ultimate.
