Morgana + Zhonya’s Hourglass is also a good counter. But, if you really want to counter Tristana, then Bliztcrank is the best support counter.

Things To Consider When Playing Against Tristana

  • Avoid standing near low health creeps to not take additional damage from Tristana’s Explosive shots.
  • You can interrupt Tristana’s jump with knock-ups and displacements (e.g. Blitz’s Powerfist or Rocket Grab).
  • To deny Tristana farm, push the lane to her tower. Tristana has trouble with farming under the turret, because of Explosive Shot’s passive effect.
  • Try to bait her to use her Rapid fire and then back off. It has a long cooldown so wasting it will give you an advantage.
  • Avoid fighting Tristana after she places her Explosive Shot on you. Each successive auto will cause you to take more damage.
