Makoa is a champion who is mostly dependant on combos capable of dealing a high amount of damage before the enemies even get to start shooting. together with his ability to have high precision displacement and inturuption.

the combo you will need to get used to in order to burst down you openents it goes /Cannon-Dredge Anchor-Cannon-shellspin-Cannon/ for a burst of 2325 (2756 if using pluck). the last shot after shellspin can be tricky to land so spend time in the shootingrange learning where your shellspin knockback sends the enemies flying.

learning to predict enemies and learning the maps are vital for playing Makoa proberly fx the spot on maurerders arc where the bridge goes slightly into the water.

Some general tips is to save your hook till an opening is present, fx raum is windin up jaugernaut instead of using it at as you engage for a quick burst

remember your hook is first and foremost for creating openings not for kills and especially not for damage, fx throwing a champion with no vertical movement down to a lower plane (this works just as well as killing them)

Notes

in basicly all senarios you would want to use Pluck given how Makoa looses a lot of his character as a burst flank without the additional damage from pluck.
