URF is returning to League of Legends on Patch 10.10 and here is a list of the 10 best champions to pick in the 2020 edition of the game mode.

Since it was revealed that the original URF was so good that it had detrimental effects on the League of Legends player base, Riot Games have been careful about how and when they release the game mode on live servers. For that reason, it is important that you use the short time you have on URF wisely by playing the best champions on offer.

The strongest URF champions are determined by how much they benefit from the Awesome Buff of Awesomely Awesome Buffing which grants all 10 players reduced cooldowns, unlimited mana, and increased attack speed.

If your favorite champion profits from throwing out an endless number of abilities or having 2.5 attack speed, it’s very likely you’ll find them on our list of the 10 best champions to pick in URF 2020:

10) Qiyana

With two dashes, a stun, and an execute in her kit, Qiyana is the perfect champion for Ultra Rapid Fire as her abilities will be placed on a much shorter cooldown and have zero mana costs.

Edge of Ixtal and Terrashape will be on an incredibly short cooldown from the very start of the game, so be sure to dash around and throw out as many Qs as possible to match the incoming poke from your opponents.

Once you reach Level 6, attempting the five-man Supreme Display of Talent stun is going to be all that’s on your mind. Try using your Brush Elemental Wrath during a chaotic team fight before dashing to the grouped up enemies and casting R for a massive stun.

9) Ekko

Dashing around a team fight and closing gaps with Phase Dive is very annoying, but escaping from your opponents with a 10 second Chronobreak cooldown is simply infuriating. Ekko is one of the slipperiest champions in URF and can be unkillable if the enemy team doesn’t grab enough crowd control in champion select.

That’s not even mentioning Parallel Convergence which stuns enemies for 2.25 seconds and has a minuscule 4.4 second cooldown at rank 1, the perfect way to kick off a team fight or skirmish.

8) Malphite

We all know why Malphite is on this list and you will no doubt be a victim to a number of Unstoppable Forces during your time on URF over the next few weeks. At rank 1, Malphite’s ultimate has a 26 second cooldown which falls to just 21 seconds at rank 2.

Basically, if Malphite is on your screen, keep your finger on Flash at all times.

7) Vladimir

Vladimir is one of the few champions who doesn’t change too much between regular League of Legends and Ultra Rapid Fire as he still incurs health costs when using his abilities. However, this is slightly negated by the fact that his Transfusion reaches a 0.5 second cooldown at Level 9.

URF team fights are won by large area of effect abilities and burst damage, Vladimir has both. Find a flank route, cast Hemoplague, and basically spam your abilities. It is essential that you utilize Sanguine Pool to avoid any key enemy abilities and crowd control heading towards you or the entire plan is ruined. Until you respawn.

6) Ezreal

Ezreal was the original overpowered URF champion as he could throw out Mystic Shot after Mystic Shot, outranging his opponents, and bursting them down without response.

The Prodigal Explorer can be built AD or AP and still deal the most damage on his team, just be sure not to waste your Arcane Shift.
