Power Mechanism Item Build

Despite the fact that Johnson is better suited for defense rather than offense, the Power Mechanism Item Build tries to strike a balance between both. Thus, this build provides a suitable amount of defensive power while making sure that Johnson can still deliver some decent yet consistent damage.

Most of the items here raises HP, HP Regeneration, Armor, and Magic Resistance. As such, Johnson is still quite tanky with this build. In fact, this build promises a lot more defensive power than expected.

While this build isn’t the best when it comes to pure defense, it does provide some damage through the unique passive of the Cursed Helmet. Since Johnson has very high durability, he can stay longer to deal continuous damage upon enemies who dare come near him. Use the Cursed Helmet’s unique passive in conjunction with Johnson’s Electromag Rays skill and you’ll be able to clear out minion waves fast and even deal sustained damage against enemy heroes.

3. Cursed Helmet

This effect wears off after 5 seconds of the hero taking damage.

Energy Kamikaze Item Build

Before anything else, I must remind you that the Energy Kamikaze Item Build is purely a gimmicky build. It disregards all of Johnson’s capabilities in order to focus on just one skill, and that is—his Rapid Touchdown ultimate skill!

This build concentrates everything into increasing Johnson’s magic power. Magic power, as we all know, is what increases the damage of Johnson’s Rapid Touchdown ultimate skill. Hence, if you’re planning to use Johnson only in his vehicle form, then this build is the most effective build for him.

Magic power, magic penetration, and cooldown reduction—you can get all of these with this build! Plus, there’s the Fleeting Time that has the unique passive of drastically reducing the cooldown of Johnson’s Rapid Touchdown ultimate skill.

Before you use this build, be sure that you’re already a professional when it comes to using Johnson’s Rapid Touchdown ultimate skill. You will only be as good as some piece of junk metal on the battlefield if you don’t know how to maneuver Johnson while he is in his vehicle form.

Armored Mecha Item Build

Among the builds listed here, the Armored Mecha Item Build is the most defensive build suitable for Johnson’s role as a tank hero.

This build offers a lot of Armor. For this reason, Johnson becomes very durable, and most of his skills increase in effectiveness. Since Johnson is one of the most durable tank heroes in the game, this build draws out his full potential as an impregnable tank. With this build, he can soak as much damage as he can without worrying about dying unceremoniously.

If you intend to use Johnson as a full-fledged, armored, mecha tank, then this build will definitely suit you well!
