Wild Rift Amumu Gameplay and Tips & Tricks
Amumu should go Middle Lane, as Middle Lane usually has Mage and Amumu passive helps in dealing more Magic Damage to all the enemies.
Amumu should unlock Skill 3 Tantrum which deals damage to enemies, provides defense and has a shorter cooldown.
Then unlock Skill 2 Despair to clear lanes faster so that you can rotate your lanes much faster.
Always use Skill 2 Despair before engaging any enemy. This will double your damage output as soon as close the gap between you and your enemy.
Always use Ultimate to finish off enemies as main Killing Blow or else Use it as soon as you initiate a fight after closing the gap.
If you use it at start, then your Ally needs to make sure to deal the Final Blow. Rotation will depend on which lane is the best lane for ganking.

Wild Rift Amumu Counter for Jungle & Best Picks Against Amumu
You beat Amumu early game on equal footing. Do not fight him however if he has an HP advantage. Mid game it can become quite hard to punch through his Aftershock keystone as base.
If he has another keystone you are able to out-duel him. Try your best to dodge his Bandage Toss (Q) with your Reaping Slash (Q).
Avoiding stuns is crucial to winning a fight. Consider building Mercury’s Treads. As for late game, Amumu becomes jungle food if you have chosen to go Rhaast. Your Black Cleaver will melt him.
