Wild Rift Jinx Gameplay Tips and Tricks 

If you are planning to become Jinx main, then you have to master her first ability Switcheroo wisely,

  1. Jinx is a scaling champ like Vyne and Kai’sa. So, if your enemy team has champions like miss fortune and Draven, then avoid trades with them in the early game and focus on farming. 
  2. Use Pow-pow minigun if the enemy is closer to you as it provides faster attack speed, which will help finish off enemies in close range.
  3. Use Fishbone Rocket launcher to attack enemies in the distance. When you use the Fishbone Rocket launcher, it will reduce your mana and attack speed, so only use it when it is truly needed.
  4. You can also use your ultimate to steal Baron and Dragon.
