Everything about Caitlyn that you should know!

About Me!
Hi everyone, my name is Dragunora, i am a regular player of league of legends

How it i Started on league

I started to play league of legends by recommendation of friends, after they insisted so much, I decided to give a chance to a moba-style game, remembering that at that time I was much more interested in FPS. I didn't like it very much, but after a few matches I got a taste for the thing and kept playing for 1 year as syndra in mid, right in this season I got the diamond I, and after this i got banned for toxicity (and yes i am not proud of this thrust me)
After get banned, i started a new account from zero and again playing on mid, but after got banned, i was not interrested to play on mid anymore, and in this same year, i watch one dude that give inspiration to play as a adc, this guy is BRTT, i watch this dude playing for the team PaiN Gaming, doing a quadra kill with kog'maw in a championship,and that play for me was more than enought for me to try be good as this guy, he inspired me,and here i am today bringing this guide for you by recomendation of a friend, is about as like 5 - 6 years playing with caitlyn, we have alot of things to talk in this guide, so shall we go?
Why you should play with Caitlyn!
When i come from mid lane to bot lane i was searching some champion with a consistence lane phase,that wasn't so hard and not so easy to play, has to be a good champion with a clean and consistence gameplay, and after passing through all the adcarrys i finally found Caitlyn
Caitlyn Caitlyn has a consistence lane phase, she is good against all the tanks and mages on bot, and after the lane phase she don't stops from scaling, with her range and damage, you can easily farm under the tower and clear the wave of minions without problems
She has a medium difficult to learn, you may be confuse with her low attack speed on beginning of the game and her huge range, caiting with her are not to easy, but nothing then some games to understand how works her limits,one thing you have to remember is Caitlyn has a grand potencial to burst and get kill in the majority of the time, the damage you deal on combo of (P) Headshot + (E) 90 Caliber Net + Flash + (Q) Piltover Peacemaker+ Auto Attack + Auto Attack + (don't worry i gonna show you how to do it), with this combo you can do at beginning of game more than 500 damage without noonquiver, with someone get stuned you obviously don't need to flash and you can use W Yordle Snap Trap that adds more that 200 damage, obviously respecting the limits and doing in right time!
Pros / Cons


High Range
High Damage
Consistent Poking
High capacity for bursting


No escape
Easy to kill
Less Attack Speed on beginning
Problems to deal with Peel Supports
Headshot (Passive) Caitlyn's basic attacks generate a stack of Headshot on-attack, doubled when attacking from brush. At 6 stacks, or 5 while in brush, Caitlyn's next basic attack becomes unstoppable and deals (50/75/100% (at levels 1/7/13) + (125% + 5% to 25%) critical strike chance) AD bonus physical damage, increased to (100% + (125% + 5% to 25%) critical strike chance) AD against non-champions.

Caitlyn may fire other empowered basic attacks until Headshot hits a target, which consumes all stacks.

Enemies that step over a Yordle Snap Trap or are hit by 90 Caliber Net can grant an additional headshot at 1300 range for 1.8 seconds, without consuming stacks of Headshot.

Piltover Peacemaker (Q)
RANGE: 1300
COST: 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 mana
COOLDOWN: 10 / 9 / 8 / 7 / 6
Caitlyn revs up her rifle for 1 second to unleash a penetrating shot which deals 50 / 90 / 130 / 170 / 210 (+1.3 / 1.45 / 1.6 / 1.75 / 1.9 per attack damage) to the first target struck, then widens by 30 units, dealing 60% damage to any additional enemies.

Piltover Peacemaker always deals 100% damage to champions revealed by Yordle Snap Trap.

Yordle Snap Trap(W)
RANGE: 800
COST: 20 mana
COOLDOWN: 30 / 24 / 19 / 15 / 12
Caitlyn sets up to 3 / 3 / 4 / 4 / 5 traps which trigger on champions. When sprung, the trap immobilizes the champion for 1.5 seconds and reveals it for 3 seconds. Traps last 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50 seconds. Caitlyn can also fire one 1300 range Headshot at trapped targets, dealing 60 / 105 / 150 / 195 / 240 (+0.4 / 0.55 / 0.7 / 0.85 / 1.0 per bonus attack damage) physical damage.

Caitlyn can store up to 3 / 3 / 4 / 4 / 5 traps at a time and gains charges every 30 / 24 / 19 / 15 / 12 seconds.

Ace in the Hole(R)
RANGE: 3500
COST: 100 mana
COOLDOWN: 90 / 75 / 60 / 60 / 60
Caitlyn takes time to line up the perfect shot, dealing 300 / 525 / 750 (+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.
