Top 3 URF Duo Lanes – Ultra Rapid Fire is back in LoL Patch 10.10
Ultra Rapid Fire (URF) has finally returned as part of of the Worlds 2020 experience starting on October 1st, 2020 at 1:00 PM (PT).
Like the last URF release, we will get the ability to choose our champions, almost a completely different experience compared to ARURF, where champions are randomized. While your favorite champions may still be target banned for the majority of games, it still allows you to select from a pool of your best or most enjoyable champions all the time! Better yet, unlike ARURF last time, a game’s win does not simply rely on RNG in champ select.
Now, what are the best URF Duo Combos?
Top 3+4 Duo Lanes to play in URF
Twitch + Lulu
Twitch is one of the most powerful champions in the game. While Twitch is not a caster, what really makes him strong is his near permanent invisibility, and the critical hit and attack speed from the URF buff. This allows Twitch to not get permanently jumped throughout the game unlike other ADC, allowing him to almost always get the first few hits before enemies can react. The only downside of Twitch, like many other ADC’s, is his survivability. Lulu makes up for this, hard crowd control with her polymorph, a massive shield from her E, and a giant health boost from her ultimate. Twitch + Lulu is a perfect 2 v 5 urf duo that will wipe enemies in seconds.
The only way to build Twitch is three Infinity Edges, Hurricane, Berserker greaves (boots) and a Death Dance for the rat. Lulu should build a combination of support, and AP / Health items to ensure more shields get dished out.
Shaco + Nautilus
This lane is extremely strong due to being able to constantly CC lock opponents, while having extremely high AP burst damage. The only clear downside to the lane is a lack of long range poke, instead, relying on one time all ins.
There are two main ways to play the lane. First, as Shaco, set up boxes, waiting for enemies to run into them and get feared, before being CC locked by Naut and followed up by another Box. Secondly, you may opt for a forceful engage would involve Shaco going out of vision, using Q to go invisible (heading towards the enemy), while Naut forcefully flash engages on the enemy, relying on his snares, pulls and knock ups to buy enough time for Shaco to arrive, place a box, and trigger fear.
Xayah + Yuumi
This lane heavily relies on late game scaling given it’s weak laning phase being prone to all ins and ganks. However, when Xayah reaches 3 items, she pumps out an immense amount of damage, all the while having her ult as disengage. Yuumi will then be responsible for not only supporting Xayah with heals, and slowing enemies, but getting out of Xayah and absorbing enemy skill shots / CC. This will allow Xayah to deal damage without getting CC locked late game and enabling her to wipe out the enemy.
Additional URF Duo Lanes
Apart from our “Top 3”, there is a plethora of combinations you can use to great success depending on the enemy team composition. We are going to list only four out a potential pool of approximately 50 viable duo lane combinations we could think of.
Zed + Jax
On the additional combos front, we got a very solid combination of two extremely strong champions in URF. Zed had both good poke and all in potential at all points of the game. Given Zed’s high poke potential, it enables Jax to smoothly scale into the mid-late games. Jax with his natural tankiness, high constant damage, and AoE CC acts as a major deterrent from any possible ganks or all ins.
Aphelios + Lee Sin
This is one of the more odd, yet strong best urf duo out there. Aphelios has high damage output, while also being able to stand his ground, and dish damage from far away. His AoE makes him an extremely solid urf pick, however, he lacks escapes and survivability. Lee Sin building an AP support style completely changes him, with his frequent massive shields and ability to dash onto Aphelious to soak up damage.
Aphelious should build normally, with AD, attack speed and crit. However, be sure not to go over the attack speed cap, given the URF buff. For this urf duo to work, Lee Sin must max shield (W) first, and build ardent censer, along with a few AP, support / hp items to sustain alongside Aphelios for infinite shields.
Blitzcrank + Thresh
We cannot pass up this iconic combo when covering some of the best URF duo lanes out there. Blitz + Thresh is absolute hook city, where decent coordination can see an opponent get infinitely CC’d and pulled to anywhere in the map. There are two prime ways to play this urf duo.
Way one, Blitz builds full AP + magic pen, while Thresh builds AD crit. This surprising combination will see many enemies get two shot, and is a great way to build if you love cheesing your opponents.
Way two, it’s simple, build full tank. This will allow the urf duo to maximise their survivability and to chain CC lock their opponents down for longer.
Gragas + Malphite
While it will struggle to get through lane a little, once you hit level 6, it is all over for the enemies. The engage this urf duo has is absolutely insane, combined with their AoE and massive AP scaling, it allows you to easily one shot enemies.
As expected, build full AP on this combo, and get a Hextech Protobelt to pop any annoying Banshee’s Veil or Edge of Night’s out there. To increase the effectiveness of this insane urf combo, you have to buy sweepers to clear out vision so you can take them by surprise.
When will URF end this time?
Ultra Rapid Fire is likely set to end on the 31st of October, 23:59 PT. While it hasnt been set at this date so far, we assume the event will end with the end of Worlds 2020. However, Riot may choose to extend it once again like they did last time! Take advantage while URF is here for the time being, as we never know when it’s back. Gather friends, and try some of our best urf duos picks out there!
