What can I say about Caitlyn, I think shes the best Range Dps champ there is in LoL. Her range is unbelievable while she can plant traps over the map to see where enemy champs are located and to snare an enemy champ for a quick kill. Her net is an awesome get away tool and can set up for a Plitover Peacemaker. And dont get me started about her ultimate Ace in the Hole which can over range ANY running champ that is trying to get away.

I hope that this guide can help you Snipe any target you want and get the kills you deserve.

Passive: Headshot
Every basic attack (attacks while in brush count as 2), Caitlyn will fire a headshot, dealing either 150 damage to a champion or 250 damage to a minion.

Q key: Piltover Peacemaker
Caitlyn revs up her rifle for 1 second to unleash a penetrating shot that deals physical damage (deals less damage to subsequent targets).

W key: Yordle Snap Trap
Caitlyn sets a trap to find sneaky yordles. When sprung, the trap immobilizes the champion, reveals them for a short duration, and deals magic damage over 1.5 seconds

E key: 90 Caliber Net
Caitlyn fires a heavy net to slow her target. The recoil knocks Caitlyn back.

R key: Ultimate Ace in the Hole
Caitlyn takes time to line up the perfect shot, dealing massive damage to a single target at a huge range. Enemy champions can intercept the bullet for their ally.

These are good for early game dmg helps you cut there defence like a sword through paper.

The Greater Seal of Alacrity is for att speed for that first kill in begin game hopefully you get it.

These adds with the seals the more att speed begin game the less you have to run to att them.

This also adds up for the marks for more armor pen Caitlyn's Q will do some much dmg

Summoner Spells

The reason why i chose Exhaust and Ghost is because i have the talent cripple where it slows and reduces the targets armor by 10 and it last a 0.5 longer. I know that doesnt sound like much but it helps when u have to either get away from a gank or slowing an enemy champion. And Ghost allows me to travel faster .

Other summoner spells that would be good for caitlyn isjust for quicker get aways and pushing lanes faster i think.

This is how your build should look end game you'll be Criting like a boss draining opponents health in 2 secs tops and will be getting your health back while doing all this. This build is a well Guaranteed victory and will get lots of kills and lots of kses

This build will make sure you win games also but, i only would pefer this build only if they have a lot of deeps and you need your health back most of the time this also increases your chance of survivability.


if you use this build WIll be the main Target in all team fights so make sure you keep your distance but can still do your dmg

This build is a build i use and pefer when going against a team that has alot of tanky/Hp people you can just rip straight through there armor from a distance and not get att and you'll bring them down a lot faster than any other build i posted but remeber if you see an enemy champion with thesedont att because your only killing yourself

Early Game Protection

While using Caitlyn in early game it is very easy to out lane some especially when your mid lane as her. So what you wanna do is plant some Traps in grasses on the sides of both your lane protecting yourself from early game gank. Trust me i know how it feels to get ganked early game and be like 1 or 2 lvs behind the person your laning against. So from my experience make sure you plant some traps in the bushes. While your out laning your enemy you wanna keep a constant eye out for those MIAs and L2 mini-map.

Pushing a Tower

You know the traps Caitlyn has there not just for spoting MIA champs but while your pushing a tower is best if you harass whoever your laning against so while your shooting there tower and there behind it your gonna wanna put some traps around there turret so they can be cut off from pushing there lane back and getting more xp from killing minions while your just peacefully taking down there turret.

Running from Death

This is where the ghost and exhaust can come into play while you are running from death you can put traps down in the grass in order to stop enemy champs from chasing and you can also use your net to push you back for an easy getaway. If your skilled (all it takes is aim) you can net yourself away from an enemy while slowing them with your net in order to get away much quicker. Also your net can be used to hop over walls that are then such as the dragon wall and ect.

Getting First Blood

Tho it seems easy but for a a sure first blood your gonna wanna make sure you skill shot properly and exhaust so enemy cant get away from you remeber you have Doran's Blade and increased armor pen. with att speed begin game you can make for an easy first kill.

Dont let your enemy get Away
With a ranged dps like Caitlyn your good at not letting enemies get away from you,(I know sometimes enemies have 1 hit to go and there ally helps them get away of they run) So when this happens and there outta of your camera sight doesnt mean there out of your range sight so just click that ulti button and click on there portrait and the rest is yours.(Make sure u have clean shot to low health enemies because there ally can intercept the shot)

Team Fights
With caitlyn its short and simple keep away from all havoc and just help your team by traping enemies and just being the range dps cailtyn is built to be.

I would like to say thank you for reading my guide vote for it if it helped you become a better Caitlyn. Thank you for all the support.
