How to play Johnson:

Johnson is an excellent pick for players who want to play a supportive tank role and help their team secure victories. However, you can also build Johnson mage like I shared above.


Early game (level 1-7): During this stage, he should focus on farming and gaining experience to level up quickly. He should avoid engaging in fights unless necessary.

Mid game (level 8-12): Johnson should focus on building his core items to increase his durability and crowd control abilities. He can also roam around the map and help his teammates secure kills and objectives.

Late game (level 13+): Johnson can also split push and pressure enemy objectives. He should use his ultimate ability to engage enemies and disrupt their positioning, while using his other abilities to crowd control and protect his teammates.

Johnson Skills

Passive – Electro Airbag

When John’s HP is lower than 30%, he generates a shield that absorbs 300 (+700% Total Physical DEF) points of damage for 10s. This effect has a CD of 100s.

Skill 1 – Deadly pincers

Johnson throws a spanner in the designated direction that deals 200 (+150% Total Physical DEF) points of Magic Damage to enemies in its path. Enemies in the area that the spanner lands will be stunned by 0.8s.

Skill 2 – Electromag rays

Johnson raises his shield, continuously dealing 80 (+20% Total Physical DEF) points of Magic Damage forwards in a fan-shape range and slowing enemies. While holding the shield, Johnson can cast Basic Attack and skills.

Skill 3 – Rapid touchdown

Passive: Permanently Increases Physical Defense by 10%. Johnson jumps up and transforms into a car, accelerating over time. Only 1 teammate can get in the car when it’s moving slowly, and then they will rush forward along with Johnson. The car will explode upon hitting an enemy hero, stunning the target and nearby enemies for 0.5s-1s, and dealing 300 (+90% Total Magic Power) – 750 (+225% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage according to the car’s speed. After the explosion, the ground will be electrified, slowing enemies and dealing 80 (+20% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to those who are in the area. When the car is going slowly, tap the skill Throttle again to move faster. Tap the skill Brake to stop immediately.
