Nexus Blitz is a unique game mode in League of Legends that allows players to get into fights more often than usual. With its altered version of Summoner’s Rift and small size compared to the other maps, Nexus Blitz can offer an action-packed game when players have limited time to play. It is worth noting that Nexus Blitz is not a permanent mode and apparently will never be. Riot Games only brings this thrilling game mode once a year.
Nexus Blitz mode only becomes available in specific time frames. The last time Riot made Nexus Blitz available was between May 27 and June 28 in 2021. With this in mind, stay tuned not to miss the chance to try out Nexus Blitz.
Nexus Blitz has its different mechanics, which make the mode more fun. Considering that most of the map comprises brushes and walls, it would not be surprising if the Nexus Blitz Tier List differs from what you think.
Nexus Blitz may be familiar to those who have played URF mode before with its fast-paced style. In Nexus Blitz mode, players gain experience over time, and recall channel time is reduced to 4.5 seconds. Besides its uniqueness, you can choose between two lanes; bottom and jungle. The other option for you is autofill, which we know from the solo queue. All the changes for Nexus Blitz mode are designed to raise the level of excitement in the game.
Top three picks for Nexus Blitz
Unlike the other tier lists published previously, jungle champions such as Amumu, Fiddlesticks and Karthus will be featured in Nexus Blitz Tier List. The list of champions that you can use while playing Nexus Blitz mode will give you an idea about which choices can be effective.
Similar to the ARAM Tier List, champions are divided into four categories. On the top of the Nexus Blitz Tier list, “God Tier” champions will be waiting for you. Note that the champions at this level have the highest win rate in Nexus Blitz. Then “Strong Choices” and “Common Choices” will follow up “God Tier” to create a complete idea.
The lowest category of the Tier list will contain several champions you should avoid selecting. Here are the best choices for your team composition when hanging out in Nexus Blitz mode. The list below is based on the latest patch, 12.4.
God Tier: Amumu, Fiddlesticks, Karthus, Kayle, Neeko, Lux
Strong: Graves, Jax, Illaoi, Maokai, Vel’Koz, Qiyana
Common: Sett, Ziggs, Sivir, Jinx, Taric, Miss Fortune
You better not choose: Zoe, Zed, LeBlanc, Nidalee, Ivern, Lee Sin
Amumu with the highest win rate in Nexus Blitz, 68.6%, is at the top of the list. The sad mummy can effortlessly show his early game strength against late champions. Considering the matches last 15 minutes, Amumu is a champion to be exploited.
The Harbinger of Doom has a unique passive ability to use brushes with maximum efficiency. Fiddlesticks also can turn team fights in his favor by using his ultimate from a place that enemy champions can’t see. Do not pass without giving a chance!
Karthus has always been fun to play on game modes, including Nexus Blitz. The Deathsinger can make a difference with his low cooldown Lay Waste ability. Even though his ultimate, Requiem has a long cooldown compared to the other global ultimates, Karthus can deal massive damage to all enemy champions and prevent them from fighting. However, the cooldown of his ultimate cannot be reduced easily because Karthus needs a full build to do this.
