Graves' basic attack fires a cone of 4 bullets which stop on the first unit hit. The first bullet on a target deals 70-100.01% total AD physical damage (depending on level), with subsequent bullets dealing a third of that damage per bullet. Structures take 25% reduced damage from Graves' basic attacks.

Graves stores two Shells at any time and expends them when he basic attacks. After using them, Graves reloads, delaying his next basic attack significantly. Graves' reload time is slightly reduced by attack speed, but the time between attacks is greatly reduced by attack speed.

Upon critically striking, Graves fires 6 bullets over a 25% wider cone and deals 30% (+14% with Infinity Edge) bonus physical damage.

Graves dashes and reloads one Shell into his shotgun. He also gains a stack for 4 seconds (max 8 stacks) or two stacks if he dashes towards an enemy champion. Stacks grant him 4 / 7 / 10 / 13 / 16 armor. Stacks are refreshed when damaging a non-minion.

Each bullet hit from Graves' attacks reduces this ability's cooldown by 0.5 seconds.

After hitting an enemy champion or reaching the end of its range, the cartridge explodes outward, dealing 200 / 320 / 440 (+1.2 per bonus attack damage) physical damage.
