Ability Order Hookshot is key
Threats & Synergies
Her whole kit takes out your hookshot which is your most important tool. Her clear is faster as well and she is really dominant in the midgame. Be careful to not get counterganked and try to not face her in fights. If your team doesn't snowball you have to scale.
Champs with an even stronger early game are a terror to face with Camille. This guy will have more ressources than you and always hunt you down. If you manage to split the map while being unseen you can make progress. Never fight him 1v1 and avoid meeting him at 1:25.
You simply have no counterplay after level 6. If you don't get stuff going before that while he fullclears chances are high you won't have much impact. You will outscale relatively fast so play it defensively afterwards and look for crossmap plays or counterganks if he makes a mistake. Taking herald while he solos drake is a good option. Don't let him 1:25 you!
Has a faster clear and is better in skirmishes. Later on she can make you question your life choices in teamfights if she peels your targets. Try to invade her before level 6 if you have prio on your lanes to delay the turning point in this matchup.
Her Insanely fast clear and the best invade in the game make her a hard matchup. She will try to get a xp advantage early so if you gank after double buff gromp she won't respond. As long as you are even in levels you can try to find her in her jungle and chase her down. Don't try to outpace her while clearing. You can basically say bye bye to one jungle half. The good news: you outscale really hard and your teamfight is way better later on.
Basically the same as Nidalee. Be careful of 1:25 and don't take early game skirmishes when he can countergank. Try to get stuff going when he is going for a full clear. You will inevitably fall behind in the midgame so everything before is an investment for you.
The king of the fiesta. His clear isn't that much better than yours but he is even stronger in skirmishes which makes him really hard to face. He can easily dodge your hookshot so don't even try hitting him as long as he has e up. You can lock him inside your ultimate later so he can't r away if you catch him.
Never fight this guy before 3 Items. You will always lose. His ganks are relatively weak so you might be able to get your laners ahead before he can have an impact. Play for Herald and stay unseen so he is afraid to take a risky gank. Vision is king in this one.
Luckily relatively uncommon. The problem with shyvana is that she will inevitably outpace you in the jungle and get her items earlier. As soon as she's got 3 Items you have little to no counterplay available especially because she can block your hookshot. Early invades if you track her pathing can pay off as well as early ganks she can't respond to. Trade Herald for Drake.
You are as lost against Rek'Sai as Lee Sin. She can interrupt your Hookshot with attack move, she can easily Oneshot you and she has as potent early ganks as you. On top of that she clears faster. Avoid her as long as possible and ping your team her location. Don't get caught near her and split the map.
In theory Xin has all the tools to dominate this matchup and is the stronger champ in early fights. Don't flip it early game. Try to respond to what he does. Your counterganks against this guy are insanely strong. If your lanes don't have prio he will invade you. Don't fight him then and accept it while looking for crossmap plays. In teamfights wait his ultimate or access his backline without him being able to deny you.
His boxes are a hard counter to your engage. His early is insane as well so don't get counterganked. Get deep vision on his camps and keep an eye on him. Ping your team what he is doing. If he snowballs hope for minute 30 when Gandalf will arrive with scaling. Don't flip Herald against this guy.
This guy is really dominant the first 20 minutes but you do have counterplay. His combo is relatively easy to dodge with your hookshot or ult and you can use his ult against him. If he engages on your backline evaluate if it is better to do the same with his or peal them by stunning Jarvan. Under even circumstances you win 1v1's if you play it clean so contest scuttles if you know the laners can't move.
Her clear is faster and healthier and she tries to go for lv 3 action like you. Mirror her and countergank it. If she manages to win one lane and is looking for a dive don't be afraid to take the 2v2 as long as you are not too much behind. Dodge her cocoon with your hookshot and autoattack her down. She gets outscaled super hard so don't flip it early by letting her play her game.
Try to hunt her down before level 6 as she will full clear. If you can't because you miss lane prio or can't tell her route then try to shift mid by cheese ganking it so you will have mid prio for her second fullclear. Toplane ganks are likely to not get responded to if you are fast. If she gets fed with Mejais you have to hope for lategame where you can lock her down while she can't use her ult to escape.
Relatively slow early but really fast after cinderhulk. Abuse his early by ganking a lot and getting lanes ahead. In fights you can easily dodge his jump and either peel for your backline or dive his. If you manage to get 4 Items against him your true damage will hurt even him. This matchup gets easier the better your mechanics are.
She will try to invade you really early but you have tools to punish her for it. Redbuff slow + w + hookshot make it really hard for her once spotted. She can't contest any of your ganks so play aggressive. Try to catch her later on and burst her down. If she gets 10 stacks and level 16 the game will be hard but this is easy to prevent with camille.
You will have all the options in this game to win your sololanes. He is likely to sit in botlane river and try to take your kruggs so just get stuff going elsewhere. Don't be afraid to lose your Wolves/Kruggs/Raptors you can trade kills and summoners for them. Take Herald while he cant contest. If his lanes are behind because of you he is no champion.
Her combo is easy to dodge for you and she is an easy burst target. Be careful with counterganks at lv 3, it might go really bad for you. If she snowballs try to crossmap and stay relevant, you will outscale.
He will always start red and can't clear other camps besides his buffs and gromp. Use this information to track, hunt him down, countergank him and make him hate his champ of choice. Don't let him ingame. You have the tools for it.
First clear is as bad as yours and he is reliant on cheese ganks. Camille wins 1v1 so you can go for an early invade. If you countergank him he's doomed. Stay on the side of the map where he is and abuse him.
Don't ever teamfight if you don't see him. Always take Control Wards because vision is king. Don't bother invading him he will block you and wait for his laners. If you countergank him while his q is on cooldown he is doomed. If you manage to get ahead you can go qss after trinity and hunt him down.
Monkey go brrrrrr. I don't think there is any gamestage where you are stronger than him. Maybe after minute 30 if you shadow a sidelane. Don't take even teamfights ever against this guy, he will be more valuable in them. Try to survive and hope for winning lanes.
If your first instance of the hookshot is still in the air while you get displaced, your e will come through and pull you to the wall. This is basically everything you need to know about this one. Your early is stronger so you can go for invades and deny him. Wait his e and stun him and he is in big trouble. His ultimate is really useless against you because you have 2 skills to block or dodge it. Engage on his backline if he ults yours.
He is forced to fullclear till level 6 so these are perfect circumstances for you. Even afterwards you can easily fight him because Camille is one of the few champs that is able to dodge his fear. You win the autoattack war if he is going standard warrior and needs to spellshield your hookshot. After his terrifying midgame the game is won.
The definition of lane difference creates jungle difference. If you've got 3 loosing lanes you can't punish him and he will just go for 10cs/minute while "counterganking" his winning lane with one button. In this case your only hope is catching him offguard later on and bursting him down. On the other hand if you get winning lanes or the winning lanes are evenly distributed you can abuse your lane prios to fk him up in his jungle really hard while ganking your strong side. Honestly if you go Tiamat you can play Camille like you would have Nidalee in this case. Herald is really good against Karthus because missing towers force him to give up camps to avoid getting invaded which gives you bonus ressources.
Pure skill matchup. Don't fight him isolated and use your ultimate to make all of his annoying utility besides his ult useless. If you give him long fights to maximize his w and invisibility you are gonna lose in the long run. Try to catch him when he moves in and burst him down. If you get ahead and see him flanking you can try to get your second q on a jungle camp and just e -> auto -> true damage q to force him recall or smite a jungle camp. Vision is king in this one as well as mechanics.
He will powerfarm and then try to get his form fast. This one is difficult to play because even if you get ahead early and delay his form as soon as he gets it he is way stronger for a long time. Personally I think blue Kayn is easier to deal with as Camille but both are hard. After Steraks and ideally Guardian's Angel you outscale. The midgame gap is really hard and can't be helped. As always in this case stay relevant by making crossmap plays and play for your strong side.
Whatever you do, dont let him snowball or it's game over. Avoid him as long as possible and play to your strengths. The matchup turns as soon as you got Ninja Tabis + Triforce and ideally a bit of hp. At this point you can just get behind his shield with your Hookshot and win the trade.
Didn't see her in a long time. If you encounter this rare species outpace her with your ganks. If you snowball before she can it is doomed for her. Her invisibility sounds good against you but as soon as she's locked inside your ultimate even her invis can't safe her. Your passive shield is really good against her as well.
Definition of anti-fun champ. Just farms up to 2 lethality items and then jumps on your carry without any counterplay. If you meet him alone you can kill him easily. Don't fight near a bush! Be careful with 1:25 as well. Try to make an investment before he can make one. In this case toplane bruisers really become a good win condition because your botlaner won't be one.
How is it balanced to have so much cc in one kit for a gank. You will always get a flash or a kill if you go to Cho. His follow up on your engage in teamfights is crazy as well.
The birb won't have early mid prio but offers a very potent gank setup. After level 6 she even has mid prio and wave clear.
Mid prio, waveclear and scaling. Nothing more to wish for. The cloud is sooo good in teamfights.
Doesn't have prio in as many matchups as others but makes up for it with the shockwave on you. Waveclear is really good to get into late game.
Mid prio, waeclear and scaling. Nothing more to wish for. Both of you are really hard to manage for opposing backline.
How is it balanced to have so much cc in one kit for a gank. You will always get a flash or a kill if you go to Galio. His ultimate is just the icing on the cake.
Waveclear, scaling and a fantastic gank setup with the w. Even has prio after a bit of scaling.
This champ is a fking joke. Insanely strong weakside champion that has one of the best engages ingame on top of scaling like crazy. If one of you gets access to the backline the fight is over.
He lacks early prio and waveclear but the cage is a fantastic tool to get a gank going. If they flash out of it you use e to their new location, if they stay in it your e is really easy to hit. You can always flash on them anyway and burst them down. Hyperscaling is juicy.
Mid prio, waveclear and instead of scaling a really good gank setup and burst.
Because you have almost no peel for your carries a supporter that has enough peel alone is crazy good. She can impact your crossmap plays as well as your backline dive which is fantastic for a weakside champ. She is completely broken anyway.
Good gank setup and the ultimate on your engage is a no brainer.
Most toxic midlaner at the moment. The gank setup with the chain is insane and so is the following burst damage. If you get her to snowball she can win the whole map.
This guy is the king of mid prio and together you can win any sidelane skirmish. Lategame waveclear against siege is not the best but still enough to delay stuff.
I'm a big fan of this champ because it is basically a Leblanc with less burst and more utility and stable waveclear.
Good setup and crazy snowball potential.
Has a lot of damage on your hookshot and snowballs the map like crazy.
Can be really dominant in some matchups which gives you openings to invade. Can be totally invisible in other matchups tho. Waveclear and gank setup are good.
Fantastic weakside champ that gives you room to get stuff going on your sololanes. Scales good and will always have value.
Point and click hehehehe. Ganks should be free but champ will fall off hard. Don't make mistakes and snowball clean.
Really good gank setup and lantern is a good tool to get you out of their backline alive after doing your job. Doesn't like being weakside so you are kinda forced to provide cover.
Backline dive after level 6 is heat, but before that don't expect anything. Needs Items to be effective.
Don't pick Camille if this guy is your midlaner. You won't be able to play the game.
The bubble is broken so try to play around it. Provide her cover early so she can give you backup in midgame.
Free mid ganks to get you going.
Free top ganks to get you going. Good scaling and lots of utility make this guy a partner you appreciate.
