Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Caitlyn is an ranged DPS-AD Character that can take both duo and solo lane.
Her utility makes her great figher even againist meele champions.
She is strongest in brush.
Every 8 / 7 / 6 attacks (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 Ability--Piltover Peacemaker
Caitlyn revs up her rifle for 1 second to unleash a penetrating shot which deals 20 / 65 / 110 / 155 / 200 (+1.3 per attack damage) physical damage to targets in a line. It deals 10% less damage to subsequent targets, down to a minimum of 50%.
-I max this ability first as its my main damage.
W Ability-Yordle Snap trap
Caitlyn sets up to three traps which trigger on champions. When sprung, the trap immobilizes the champion, deals 80 / 130 / 180 / 230 / 280 (+60% of ability power) magic damage over 1.5 seconds and reveals the target for 9 seconds. Traps last 4 minutes.
-I max this ability second followed by my E
E Ability-Calber Net
Caitlyn fires a heavy net to slow down her target by 50% for 1 / 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 seconds and deal 80 / 130 / 180 / 230 / 280 (+80% of ability power) magic damage. The recoil knocks Caitlyn back.
-I max this followed by my W
[Ultimate]R--Ace in The Hole-Caitlyn takes time to line up the perfect shot, dealing 250 / 475 / 700 (+2.0 per bonus attack damage) physical damage to a single target at a huge range. Enemy champions can intercept the bullet for their ally. It provides vision of the target for the duration.
-Like every ultimate i take it whenever availible.
Use it as an escape tool.
Also viable to jump over wall with it.If zou gonna slow zour enemies that are escaping stand behind tree or big wall.
Where to place Yordle Snap traps
In brushes at duo lane.Becouse zou will be needing those when enemies trz to harras zou in it.Whz to staz in bursh...Becouse of headshot.
Ace in The Hole
However dues to this ultimates name it wont ace team but it can easily allow you to kill and enemy from significant range!
Use this in ganks when you are not enable to get any closer to enemy and when your enemy is running.Make sure it deals enough damage so you get kill 100%
I rush 2early so i get cheapest high damage early on.(Im not noob i know you cant buy both at same time.When you spawn take one then grab 2nd.
Only viable boots choise areothers just dont match Caitlyns specialities.
I grabbecouse of early armor penatration.
Is defenitivly up next as its mayor Attack damage item.

is definitivly my last item,Health,damage and catch up passive.Addonitialy i have to sell myso it can fit in.
I take all offensive attack damage masteries in offense and typical masteries that can help me carry in utility.
-Allows you to assasinate enemy with your ultimate when they are out of your vision bubble.
-Allows you to slain enemy easily
Mobility and allows you to place down basic attacks againist fast champions that are running.
No longer exsists XaXa.
If somebody meele wanna fight you use it and kill!!!!!!!
Caitlyn isnt very viable jungler even though she can jungle.What do you think..Grab ignite or no?
-Sometimes saves the day.Can help you get kill though.
-If your a noob.
-If you dont have mana regen glyphs.-Only useful if you have really powerful CC enemies
-You have half hp.Enemy has full Hp.You exhaust and win)
Your damage is very high and you will farm easily.However on higher lvls you can clear minion wave with.
However lets return to early game.Place down 6 attacks on minions for farming then do 2 on your opponett so you chargedamage+ basic attack dmg.Youre opponet gonna get scared and run.
