Jinx has arrived in Teamfight Tactics set 6.5. In TFT: Neon Nights. Jinx is a five-cost Rival Scrap Twinshot and her Super Mega Death Rocket makes her one of the premier carry champions in the entire game. Through a mix of analysis by Upcomer’s TFT expert and data from API sites like Metatft.com, Upcomer has brought players a Jinx TFT guide that goes over what the best Jinx items, comps and positioning looks like.
The only thing that matters when it comes to doing damage with Jinx is making sure she stays alive long enough to cast her ability and kill the enemy team after she casts. Since she does a ridiculous amount of base damage, Runaan’s Hurricane is the best item to build on her so she can take down two enemies at once. Since she dives into the backline, Edge of Knight is the perfect item to give Jinx an extra life. And finally, Giant Slayer is the best damage multiplier on Jinx, since her spell cast damages enemies in a wide radius. Players should aim for at least two of the three items in S-Tier. The third item can really be anything else, especially if players have the Scrap trait active.
When it comes to Jinx positioning, players absolutely need her to cast her spell. The safest way to do that is to make sure Jinx is on the backline. There really is no other scenario where she is viable outside of the last row of hexes. Players should aim to keep her in a corner if able but without a Quicksilver or Trap Claw, its best to put her next to the corner hexes.
The best comp for Jinx is one that plays around her traits. Those are Scrap and Twinshot. Scrap is her best trait because it gives her a huge shield that will allow Jinx to cast her spell and stay alive after it. But her other trait, Twinshot is fantastic too. Once she casts her spell, its vital to quickly end fights and the double hit off of Twinshot makes sure that happens.
