Hello there everybody. My name is Shadowrend9 and I play on EU Nordic & East.
Back to Top


Caitlyn is one of the best as a AD carrys. As a AD carry she is a bot champ, but also can be played mid/top. The most important stats for her are Attack Damage (AD), and Attack Speed (AS) and Critical, so plan on investing in those, as her passive deals 150% more damage to champions.
With this build you will do around 1200+ critical damage every strike. My maximum was 1680.
In early game use skills on champions, while later use only the auto-attack, combining it with skills from time to time.

Read the item list below in its chapter.

I will start of with the skills.

Headshot is Caitlyns passive skill. Every 8/7/6 hit will deal 250% damage to a minion, and 150% to a champion, so try to combine your skills and this to deal most damage. When shooting from the grass, every hit counts as two.

Piltover Peacemaker is the first skill. It is the skill you will use most commonly, both for clearing out mobs and damaging champions at low lvls.

Yordle Snap Trap is the tactical skill for Cait. It will paralyze the enemy champion for 1.5 seconds, and deal damage. You can only have 3 traps placed at the same time, with each traps life-span of 4 minutes.
I use it in three "modes".
1. Plan ahead - Placing them in bushes and corners for a escape route.
2. Defense - Placing them in passages to notice enemies and give myself more time to escape.
3. Attack - Placing them in crowds as a offensive skill.

90 Caliber Net This skill will fire a net that paralyzes an opponent as well dealing damage to them. It will also push Caitlyn back, so use this skill either for escaping opponents or as a replacement for flash. It can push Caitlyn through thinner wood and walls, so it is good for escape while being chased.

Ace in the Hole is Caitlyns ultimate. Caitlyn will focus an opponent and fire a single round at him, dealing massive damage (250,475,700). If an another enemy champion stands in the way of the round, he will get hit. Once the target is locked, it can go outside of the aim range, making escape impossible.
